In it, Prince can be seen inviting Kardashian up onstage to dance during his concert as the audience cheers and shouts. When she fails to do anything but stand around awkwardly, however, the “When Doves Cry” singer immediately does an about-face.

“Get off the stage,” he tells the Selfish author. Kardashian gives a tiny shrug and trots back to her seat.

The mom of two, who attended the show with then-fiancé Kris Humphries and BFF Jonathan Cheban, took to Twitter to explain to fans what went down.

“I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!!” she wrote, later adding, “Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself! We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!”
