Prince Takes Over the Arsenio Hall Show: 5 Things We Learned

Originally posted 03/05/2014 07:30PM

Prince showed that he had a sense of humor when he guested on New Girl last month.

But when PEOPLE went backstage to watch him on The Arsenio Hall Show, in an episode airing Wednesday night, we learned a whole lot more about the Purple One.

Clad in bell-bottoms, a long black fur vest, gold chains and a tame '70s afro, the famously private star took over the show as only he could.

Over the two hours of taping on Tuesday night, Prince performed three songs – his new single "FunkNRoll," "She's Always in My Hair" and "Mutiny" – chatted on the couch with Hall, and later sat with the audience to take questions from his fans, some of whom had been waiting outside the studio for more than six hours to see him.

Diana Ross vs. Queen Bey: Relive 12 Timeless Super Bowl Halftime Shows

Originally posted 02/02/2014 10:30AM

On Wednesday, the Internet was fooled by a hilarious fake single from 2014 Super Bowl halftime performers Red Hot Chili Peppers called "Abracadabralifornia". The Chili Peppers's real performance alongside Bruno Mars can't possibly be that bad – in fact, given the halftime show's recent track record of success, it will probably be pretty good!

Still doubtful? Look at our list of the 12 most memorable Super Bowl halftime shows ever (and then see how many of them happened within the last 10 years).

Billboard Music Awards Host Tracy Morgan Doesn't Believe in Getting Nervous

Tracy Morgan Doesn't Believe in Getting Nervous

It makes sense that a star comedian like Tracy Morgan would have a way with words.

So, as he gears up to host Sunday's 2013 Billboard Music Awards, the funnyman says he chooses his terms wisely when describing how he feels about his hosting duties.

"Words take on meaning," he explained to PEOPLE on Wednesday. "If I say, 'I'm nervous,' then I'm going to be nervous. If I'm excited, then I can't wait for it to start. People who are nervous can't wait for it to be over. Nervousness is negative to me. Excitement is the way I like to use it."

Behind the Purple Curtain: Inside the Private Life of Prince

Inside the Private Life of Prince

Originally posted 01/26/2013 11:00PM

Prince may be revered and adored by millions, but not much is known about his private life.

Since becoming a global, Grammy-winning star in the '80s, with classics like "Kiss" and "Raspberry Beret," the R&B musician has pretty much kept to himself. He rarely gives interviews and mostly prefers laying low at his Paisley Park compound outside of Minneapolis instead of hob-knobbing with celebs in Hollywood. But with new music on the way this year – he just released a terrific new single "Screw Driver" online, which you can hear here – the star is pulling back the curtain on his private life.

A new Billboard cover story offers a rare glimpse of His Purpleness and Paisley Park. (An excerpt is available here; the full story is available at newsstands now).
