Meet Misty Copeland: Prince’s Date At Essence Black Women in Music
Prince knows how to find a beautiful woman, and he certainly has a thing for dancers. While attending Essence: Black Women in Music, honoring the beautiful Janelle Monae, Prince was spotted with a beautiful woman on his arm. Well, her name is Misty Copeland, and she’s a dancer at the American Ballet Theater in New York. Here are few pictures of Misty Copeland in action, and like I said, not only is she beautiful, she’s very talented.
Initial reports suggested the relationship was strictly a working one, but after attending Essence with Prince, a couple alert has now been issued. More pics of Misty Copeland, plus find out how the two met:
Copeland, 26, took a few nights off from her role in “The Nutcracker” at Brooklyn Academy of Music to bring down the house with Prince as part of his tour.
The classical ballerina — one of a handful of African-American ballerinas in the world — performed a sexy pas de deux to the hit “The Beautiful One” with the legendary musician after he tracked her down and asked her to be part of his show.
“It was phenomenal,” Copeland gushed. “The energy between me and Prince and the audience was really overwhelming. I mean, it was Madison Square Garden, with Prince!”
