Blind Items Revealed

September 21, 2007

#1 This height challenged male singer of extraordinary pedigree, was eating at a restaurant the other night which is Michelin rated. When he got his food he sent it back twice, but not before letting his guests sample the food and almost finishing the plates before he deemed it awful. He finally just threw his hands in the air and told the waiter he wanted a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. When the waiter informed the chef, the chef caved and made it, but not before someone went down to the corner and bought some peanut butter. When it came back, our singer returned it because the crusts hadn't been removed. Finally it came back perfect and our singer spent 45 minutes eating one sandwich which was 1 hour after the restaurant closed.

Put money in the douche jar.

I hope the chef had the good sense to buy grape jelly!

Sugar said...

Get it? You know, cause it's purple!!

LA Mac said...

Shoulda put the run to him. I know there is a restaurant in Japan that prides itself on having tossed out John Lennon and Yoko

:| raven |: said...

LOL @ Sugar ...

i didn't really know he was such a diva.

really? do these people have to be such assholes all the time?

Chilie said...

Chef should have tossed him out. It's a restaurant, not his home kitchen.

hothotheat said...

I didn't get the "extraordinary pedigree" bit :/. I was thinking a short singer who has famous parent(s) like that singer who's father is a famous designer.

Prince's food quirks are well known. He once hired a fancy European chef and then demanded Kraft macaroni and cheese for most meals.

GemTwist said...

But what about raspberry??

Alicia said...

I've heard nothing but nasty stories about Prince.. Several from a good friend of mine who was one of his former music producers. That sucks because I love his music so much :(

Ingrid Superstar said...

I don't give a shit about all the great music he's made, it I was working in the kitchen that night he'd be eating a Peanut Butter & Jelly & Spit Sandwich.

Rolf said...

I admit, I'm a big fan of Prince's music. I own every album he released, even all the new ones which are hard to get. Unfortunately the guy can be a major diva and here he proved it once again. I feel sorry for the employees of the restaurant.

captivagrl said...

I would put up with him never.

Robert said...

Ingrid, you read my mind...!

Glitter said...

What's his pedigree??? Are his peeps famous?

goes in circles said...

My dad went to school w/ Roger Nelson, who was apparently a diva way back then.

AKM said...

Yeah, I don't think the phrase "extraordinary pedigree" fits Prince. His parents were singers/musicians, sure, but I couldn't name them if I tried.

Ah, Prince. Napoleonic complex much? Jeez.

M said...

Extraordinary pedigree is a nod to his name. Princes are offspring of Queens & Kings.

Brenda L said...

AHA! But what kind of tip did he leave? The tip can redeem all wrongs.

Del Riser said...

A swell time to make use of the sign that reads "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone".

You aren't going to lose money on a guy who only orders peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

just curious said...

There was a story that he order spaghetti with a glass of orange juice.

NYCGirl said...

Was thinking the same, Sugar. :)

Sugar said...

Hey-O!!!! Raspberry is an exceptional alternative, Gemmy!

pinkspatzi said...

I still love me some Prince! Tiny douche or not...

Snit said...

My friend went to high school with him. His nickname was Skippy. I shall always think of him as Skippy.

Skippy needs a time out.

krk67 said...

Prince should be blacklisted from restaurants for this.

supapimp said...

I love skippy peanut butter

auntliddy said...

Idiot.

Steppy said...

Big Deal. Sounds like a snotty restaurant.

seaward said...

Steppy, where have you been??? I didn't know Prince was a Scientologist!

Scott said...

Much like his use of "A list", Enty likes to use words he doesn't seem to know the meaning of.

katsm0711 said...

LOLLLLLLLLLLLL

smashbash said...

Seaward hahaha true that

Connie151 said...

And why exactly was he not asked to leave? I don't understand establishments catering to celebrity assholes...it only encourages them.

LetLoveRule said...

I'm a huge Prince fan as well, but
I think he should just hide out in his compound and let the staff (who can quit at any time) deal with him.

He's earned his divatude, but that doesn't mean it's cool to inflict it on the general populace.

katsm0711 said...

I wonder how many waiters loogies Prince has ingested in his lifetime

Henriette said...

Hope it was crunchy peanut butter! This type of behavior is not unusual for Prince. He is a complete nut!

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

As a musician, he's an absolute genius; I've always gotten the impression, though, that as a human being, he's a complete asswipe. Just because someone's a genius doesn't mean they're a good person; the reverse is true often enough that it's surprising to find cases where genius and decency go together. *sigh*

Tuxedo Cat said...

Wow, who knew that Prince could be such a PITA?

Margaux said...

The whole time reading this I was thinking "What an asshole!" but now that I know it was Prince, it's just kind of funny. Really funny actually.

Chilie said...

Prince isn't CO$. He is Jehovah's Witness.

Chilie said...

Ohhhh, I just got the joke...

Barton Fink said...

"If the bra fits..." he said once to Kevin Smith. Prince is and always has been a major douche. Still, he had two or three good songs in the 80s.

warmislandsun said...

His attitude seems like a big compensation for his size. Poor little guy. She knew which foot to use, but she couldn't dance.....

Seriously though, he is a musical genius and I love his music.

Kloie said...

I dislike his music, and he sounds like a jackass. I do, however, like peanut butter and jelly with crunchy peanut butter and grape jelly.

califblondy said...

Seeing the him twice during the Musicology tour is one of the many highlights of my life. Somewhere between Las Vegas and San Diego he really loosened up with the crowd. While I'm a huge fan I think his music can be repetitive.

There's still no excuse for acting like an ass and he should have been asked to leave.

djphob said...

Saw him last year at the Forum. A-fucking-mazing.

I'd make him as many meals as his little ass wanted.

Sarah said...

Echoing the concert fans. Prince is absolutely amazing live. I've seen him a few times and each show has been better than the last. If you ever get the opportunity to attend one of his concerts GO!

billybob said...

I worked in a cafe every Friday evening and all day Saturday while still at school. Nothing worse than earning a minimum wage and having to put up with a purple midget acting like Gloria frikkin’ Swanson! I used to stir a nice big boogie into my boss’s coffee. And his biscuits would be lovingly rubbed against my ‘undercarriage’. I wonder if old Mr Webley is still alive? Bet he can’t figure out why his coffee doesn’t taste as nice as the ones I made him!

hotchacha said...

Yeah he can be a piece of work, but he'll always be memorable to me for the following reasons:
1) On my divorce honeymoon (yes, my ex and I were quirky like that) Prince threw down and incredible concert on New Years Eve that was straight up The Best Concert I've Ever Seen.

2) I held my own in an on-stage dance off with him with special accompaniment by Maceo Parker.

3) Following a two-hour set at the intimate after party, he called all the musicians back and played a 30-minute version of Thank You Falletinme Be Mice Elf Agin spliced with Rhythm Nation -- all because I boldly/rudely told him he wasn't done yet as he tried to walk out of the party.

I can't totally hate a guy that would do that.

I just went to his amazing concert late month :-) It was beyond awesome. He can come to my house I got some pb&j plus the Mac and cheese and plenty of oj!!!!

Topper Madison said...

@Margaux Exactly! It's immature, but it is funny. And I strongly suspect there was laughter throughout the exchange of the "little guy" forcing the hand of the fancy-pants restaurant. If this surprises anyone, go watch "Purple Rain." It's got all sorts of this type of humor throughout it.

lilo723 said...

I can't stand Prince. It's a shame he is so talented. I hope the chef spit or did something to the sandwich. It serves him right.

Tuxedo Cat said...

I read somewhere that Prince, a few years ago, was walking with a limp, and badly needed hip surgery.

Jehovah Witnesses don't allow blood transfusions, however, so surgery wasn't an option.
