Now this is how you close an awards ceremony!
Toward the end of the Billboard Music Awards last night, Prince received the Icon Award. But instead of an acceptance speech, the legendary artist shocked viewers with a rare television performance.
Watch him sing the 1984 smash “Let’s Go Crazy” here and then transition to his newest track, “FIXURLIFEUP.”Prince Billboard Music Awards Performance
Among other Billboard highlights:
- Fans may have booed Justin Bieber.

- Miguel fell on a fan’s head.
- Taylor Swift mocked her own love
Prince Harry spoke about his charity work Wednesday night in South Africa, and of his late mother, who instilled the passion in him for giving back.
Princess Diana worked to help those with HIV/AIDS, and now Harry, 28, is doing the same in the tiny kingdom of Lesotho, where he’s visiting now.
The younger Prince of Wales observed the work of the charity Sentebale that he set up with friend Prince Seeiso in memory of their late mothers.
Harry said he hoped both mothers would be looking down with pride.

Prince Harry’s military tour of duty was no joke.
Upon returning from his five-month stint in Afghanistan, he was asked (yes) about his naked photo scandal, but also about killing Taliban insurgents.
Which he did.
The 28-year-old Apache helicopter pilot confirmed to the British media that he and his fellow soldiers killed Taliban fighters during his deployment.
“To take a life to save a life,” the World’s Top Bachelor said.
“That’s what it revolves around, I suppose. If there’s people who are trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we’ll take them out of the game.”
It looks like those naked Prince Harry photos have paid off for this single Brit.
According to Town & Country magazine, this fine piece of royal backside is the Top Bachelor in the World.
The list of 40 hunks is “a highly subjective, thoroughly opinionated survey of the princes, politicians, scions, DJs, and billionaires-to-be we consider the most eligible men in the universe,” says the publication, which has somehow ranked George Clooney at #33.

With Kate Middleton and Prince William expecting their first child in 2013, we got to thinking recently. What should the royal bundle of joy be named?
Ever since the news that William got Kate Middleton pregnant broke, speculation has been swirling regarding its gender, and what they will call it.
One thing’s for sure: The baby will be the heir(ess) to the throne behind William, thanks to a change in the rules of succession. A very cool thing.
What will the future King or Queen of the UK and all its territories be called?
It won’t be something original, that’s a safe bet. TheMore >
After Rupert Murdoch’s newspaper controversially published the pictures of Prince Harry naked in Vegas, the publisher urged the public to lay off the royal.
“Prince Harry. Give him a break,” he Tweeted. “He may be on the public payroll one way or another, but the public loves him, even to enjoy Las Vegas.”
“Only lesson for Prince Harry: avoid playmates with cameras!”
Harry was infamously photographed partying in the nude in a Las Vegas hotel room last weekend, and the photos hit the web via TMZ late Tuesday.

The Prince Harry naked photo scandal may be far from over.
Max Clifford, one of the most powerful and prominent publicists in Britain, says he’s “been approached by two American girls” claiming to have additional photos and evidence from Harry’s wild night in Vegas, according to Us.
“I turned them down,” Clifford says, however “there’s more out there. Stories which wont go down well with the Royal family. It could get worse.”
How much worse? That remains to be seen. Harry will be in the doghouse regardless, but right now the two nude shots are actually pretty tame.

Move over, Kate Middleton and Prince William. You’re so yesterday’s royal couple news.
Tabloids in Great Britain are buzzing over Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas, a 23-year old model (whose mother is 60s pin-up Lady Mary-Gaye Georgiana Lorna Curzon) and their recent night out at The Dark Knight Rises premiere in London.
While Bonas technically attended the event as someone else’s date, insiders say Harry and the beauty were especially “playful,” especially at the after-party.
“Inside the club they were very, very friendly together and getting very cozy with each other,” a witness tellsMore >
Prince William is kind of the man.
Not only is he rich, famous, intelligent, married to a lovely young woman and the heir to the British throne, he’s an accomplished pilot in the UK’s armed forces – as evidenced during a daring rescue mission he took part in this morning.
William helped save the lives of Russian seamen whose cargo vessel sank into the Irish Sea off the coast of North Wales early today, according to various reports.
Known simply as Flight Lt. William Wales in the Royal Air Force, he was co-pilot in a four-man rescue helicopter crew that responded to a mayday call around 2More >
There was no daring pool party rescue required this time, but Prince Harry still had an eventful night out Saturday at the Belly Up Tavern in Solona Beach, Calif.
“He was here!” Meryl Klemow, Belly Up’s manager says, adding that Harry showed up around 9 p.m. with about ten folks, including two “very attractive” young women around his age, neither of whom were “romantic” with Harry or anyone else.
Ladies everywhere, you may now exhale.
Although Harry and his pals drank beer and tequila, the real agenda of the night was music! “He was watching the bands and really loved the music,” KlemowMore >
The hunk has landed.
Like Prince William and Kate Middleton earlier this year, Prince Harry has touched down in the great state of California. But unlike his brother and sister-in-law, he’ll be here for two months instead of two days, and for much different reasons.
The helicopter pilot arrived at an El Centro, Calif., air force base for intense training.
Prince Harry, who flies Apache helicopters, will be spending about a month there before heading to Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field in southern Arizona.

Prince Harry of Wales, the UK’s most eligible bachelor, turns 27 today.
For a guy nicknamed The Spare and so often living in Prince William’s shadow, he’s quite a mover and shaker. But don’t expect any crazy revelry this evening.
Harry is spending the day at RAF Wattisham airfield, where he’s in the final stage of intense training for Apache helicopters. The pilot’s #1 priority is to be redeployed to the front lines immediately, if not sooner. Pretty cool dude …
If he ever needs a second career, he proved himself a natural Monday when he attended charity day at London’s BGC financialMore >
Bravo, Prince Harry.
The Royal stud has been rumored to be dating Pippa Middleton, setting the bar incredibly high for his next girlfriend. But, in reality, he’s reportedly with Florence Brudenell-Bruce, an underwear model who could hold her (hot!) own against Kate’s cute sister.
The two have been friends for years, sources tell The Daily Mail, with an insider saying:
“It’s very early, but Harry and Florence are an item. “She is a lot of fun, blonde and very good looking. Harry really likes her.”

He never wanted to leave his unit in Afghanistan. Now Prince Harry has reportedly been cleared to return to front line military service there.
The prince has qualified as an Apache helicopter pilot but will need to finish “conversion to role” training in England before being redeployed.
That will take another seven months, the Guardian states.
A statement from Clarence House says that the specifics of Prince Harry’s situation – when he returns to active duty – are the army’s to determine.
“Harry is an army pilot and will deploy wherever the army chooses to send him,” the statement says.More >
