As the world continues to mourn the late, great icon Prince, who died unexpectedly on April 21 at his Minnesota compound Paisley Park, some of his most memorable career moments are being remembered. Prince lived an incredible and peculiar life, filled with incredible and peculiar moments — and while it’d be tough to list all of his most iconic, one of my favorites might have to be the time he kicked Kim Kardashain off stage during a 2011 show at Madison Square Garden because he was having none of her antics (or, lack of rhythm).

In a clip from his Welcome 2 Tour trek of that year, Prince hunts for a lady in one of the front rows to join him on stage, flirting and lightly chiding his audience members. He spots Kardashian and asks her to join him, then immediately begins dancing around her to a funk groove. His dance partner, however, laughs nervously while standing in place and clapping for him before Prince says, “Get off my stage,” to her.
