If Vegas is LA’s backyard, then Prince has officially moved into our sandbox. We should all go there and make sure he’s ok in the desert. You know they say it’s a dry heat. But I digress. Prince! Wearer of lace pants. Prince! A man so cool he sometimes doesn’t need a name. Prince! Music maker, ass shaker, house decorator.

Prince! Is opening a club at the Rio.
