THROWBACK THURSDAY: Prince Disguised As An Old Man At The GQ Men Of The Year Awards (1998)


Prince’s hilarious old man disguise is our Throwback Thursday feature.

I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say we’re still hurting over Prince’s death but clips like this inject some laughter into the situation. Here, he dons the attire of an old man as he presents Chris Rock with the Man Of The Year in Television Comedy award for GQ’s Men Of The Year Awards in 1998. My favourite line is when he claims he asked for an signed book and was told, “stop frontin’, you know you can’t read!”

We Miss You, Purple One.
