Prince Celebrates Purple Rain's 30th Anniversary: Apollonia Dishes on Their Reunion

It's been 30 years since Prince – in the infamous words/lyrics of Kanye West – was "on Apollonia," and on Saturday night, the duo marked the occasion with a private concert at Paisley Park, Prince's Minneapolis compound.

In her first visit to the mansion/studio space, Prince's 1980s muse had a front-row seat as her former onscreen paramour celebrated the 30th anniversary of both the album and the film Purple Rain with an eight-song set.

Nothing compares 2 him.

Prince occasionally likes to remind people that – despite being a semi-recluse who doesn't allow photography or recording at his shows and steadfastly rejects the Internet – he's still a force to be reckoned with.

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

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.

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).
