Even if you're an A-list celebrity you're still not worthy of breathing the same air with his royal highness Prince. Some celebrities are narcissists who aspire to be celebs because they naturally think they're better than you or I.

For most of them, reaching the pinnacle of success simply means they are placed on a lofty pedestal so they can look down on others.

Surely this is the attitude of Prince, who snubbed FOX News dignitaries such as Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Judd Apatow who mingled with the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.

None of those names were big enough for the high and mighty Prince who sequestered himself in a darkened corner, according to Page Six.

After performing four songs, Prince skipped dessert, when he could have schmoozed with Richard Branson, Jeff Koons, Oscar-winning "Hurt Locker" director Kathryn Bigelow and Oliver Stone, who joked that his moustache was a nod to his friends in South America.

Prince, having avoided the celebs uptown, turned up later at the packed Village Underground on West Third Street. In a corner, sipping an orange juice with ice, the superstar wouldn't eat anything that wasn't in Saran Wrap. Fortunately for him, lentil soup and Israeli salad from the Olive Tree restaurant nearby were wrapped appropriately.
Joining his band onstage, he sang along to "Controversy" but kept his back to the crowd to avoid fans trying for a photo.

The late jazz legend Miles Davis used to turn his back on the audience too when he performed live. I guess that's what musical geniuses do.

    Have you ever thought he is just regular folk and doesn't want to schmooz with the so-called who's who? Who are they to think that people have to want to schmooz with then because they are so-called celebrities. Prince has been in the game longer then most of them combined. Maybe he is over it.

  • Anna

    My Lil Man Prince. :lol: Sandra Prince has always been shy. He has been performing forever and even if he would be on a late night show, only once did I see him interview after singing. The names mentioned above that he did not mengle with, he probably doesn't even know who they are. :lol:
