Play with fire, and you’re gonna get burned. Somebody should have warned Lil Mo before she went on the attack against Prince, and was left to deal with the aftermath. The R&B singer slammed the music icon after his security team stopped her from using the restroom backstage at Essence Festival over the weekend, and then went a step further and criticized the Purple One’s singing.
Mo claims she and a friend “had VIP passes to meander the whole superdome dude talmbout ‘we gotta hold the walk through cuz PRINCE coming through the back.'” She continued, “b**** wtf. I don’t want to see him. I had to PEE.”
She then posted a second note with the missive, “but he didn’t eem hit all the damn notes.”
Think Prince would take that lying down? Think again. The legend fired off a number of tweets, all of which he has since deleted, but left one up to accompany a self-portrait of him giving some serious side-eye: “WINNER OF THE CAPTION THIS PICTURE THANG: ‘I hope she know, none of her clothes match.'”
Lesson learned: don’t throw shade at Prince.
