And yet, resistance on the other end of it also proved futile for actor David Arquette recently at one of Prince's fabled 21 shows at the Forum in Los Angeles. According to WENN reports, after arguing with security over shots he took of the Purple One, security kicked out the kid sitting next to him for taking pictures -- right after Prince told everyone to take out their handheld devices. Perhaps trying to be the hero, Arquette was, instead, given the boot.
"Security came to take this kid away and they said, 'You gotta get rid of all those pictures on your phone,'" Arquette relays. "I said, 'Prince just said we could take the pictures.' And so I got kicked out of the Prince show."
Prince's 'Welcome 2 America' tour is proving to be a danger zone for celebrities, and yet, celebrities -- like everyone else -- seem to be magnetically attracted to the shows. First, Prince kicked socialite Kim Kardashian off stage, back in February, shortly after he invited her up to dance. Then Whitney Houston was banned from going to any more of the L.A. shows after Prince's team became fed up with her ticket requests and alleged party habits (Prince later vouched for her and said she's welcome anytime). With more shows planned, stay tuned for more juicy tidbits to come.
As for Arquette, if it's any consolation, Prince only performed five encores of all his greatest hits.
