Dear Lord: Shaq dresses up like Prince, sings ‘When Doves Cry’ karaoke jam (video)
As a native, lifelong and proud resident of Minnesota, the music of Prince, despite his peculiarities and eccentricities, will always have a place in my heart. But after watching Shaquille O’Neal play dress-up as Prince to perform a karaoke version of the classic 1984 jam “When Doves Cry” during an appearance on Live with Kelly & Michael after challenging the hosts to a karaoke contest, well, I’m not so sure Prince’s music, at least this song, will ever be looked upon the same by me again.
Jeez Louise, makes you want to put on your “Raspberry Beret,” hop in your “Little Red Corvette” and just drive and drive so you can purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka, doesn’t it? I mean, “Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad”, Shaq? I’m not kidding, I’m feeling a bit “Delirious” after watching that hot mess.
Still, I guess given the popularity of the daytime talk show, having Shaq show up and put on a show simply is the “Sign o’ the Times.” Nevertheless, looking at my laptop, I have to say it looks “Computer Blue” right about now, just from having that video played.
Okay, I’m done now. Here’s an animated GIF if the video wasn’t enough.
