[Woman Off-Screen] So, let's talk about Prince,
because you have a great Prince story.
I was out at this club called Nell's,
on 14th Street in New York,
dancing with my friend,
and all of a sudden, there was this littler person
that came and started dancing with me.
And it was like, oh, that's Prince. So cool.
Cut to, I don't know, not that long afterwards,
someone was like,
Do you know Prince wrote a song about you?
And it's on The Black Album, which I still have,
and it had a song on it called Cindy C.
[Lynn] It's pretty racy, too.
Yes, and now I know what was going through his mind
as we were dancing.
I saw him maybe a month and a half ago,
at a Warriors game.
He came in, and they were like,
Ladies and gentlemen, Prince!
And he came in, and he had on,
I wanna say it was a purple ice skating suit or something
with collar zipped all the way up to the top,
and he had on these peacock green heels.
And he came in with his cane and he sat down,
and he looked out the side,
and he looked out the other side.
You know, Prince does this thing,
he has this smile that lets you know he's in on the joke.
He knows. You know what I mean?
Yeah, he's fly, he's cool.
But he also knows his performing.
He knows it, you know it.
The energy he just emanated,
it permeated everything he did.
His persona, his music, the way he dressed,
the way he looked, the way he spoke.
It was just...
[Lynn] He was an artist.
Yeah. He was a genius.
Two years ago, I was Prince for Halloween,
and I had everything.
It was so much fun picking it out.
I mostly wore women's clothing.
I took a women's lace shirt,
and cut it up in all types of pieces,
and ended up wrapping that around my forehead,
and then around my sleeves.
I mean, there was just lace popping out of every crevice
of whatever I was wearing.
[Lynn] Did you feel differently when you were Prince?
Did you change your mood as yourself?
It didn't so much change my mood
as the people around me.
I felt like I was more accessible to a number of people
that I wasn't in the past.
One of my best friends, Chloe,
when she first heard I had never heard of Prince,
she played me Purple Rain
whilst doing an interpretive dance to it.
Really, really loud.
She just blared it on turntable,
and then just started kind of, you know...
All of this was happening.
And I was like, wow.
If Prince can make you do that,
Prince has power. So much power.
I, luckily, was able to,
I saw him a couple times.
One time, I met him.
We went to a show in L.A., small show.
And afterwards, I got to go backstage
and talk to him per a little bit.
[Lynn] Was he nice?
The nicest guy in the world.
Really sweet, very soft spoken,
but just kind.
Had no air of pretentiousness about him
or anything like that,
and you just walk away being like,
Man, Prince is awesome. Prince is cool as Hell.
