We recently brought you the fantastic news that Nicolas Cage was filmed giving a very heartfelt performance of Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ at a Karaoke bar in LA. Well, the big guy obviously knows his preferred tune as he’s done it again.
The original ‘performance’ came after a tumultuous time for Cage. The actor recently got drunkenly married in Las Vegas only to annul the marriage four days later. Though his now ex-wife claims it was a legitimate marriage and is seeking spousal support. To shake off the cobwebs Cage took to an LA Karaoke bar to pay tribute to the Purple One on the anniversary of his untimely death.
Now, TMZ reports that the actor is back on stage with mic in hand and his favourite song on repeat as he again sang Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ but this time with a lot more venom.
Cage describes himself as a Prince superfan. “It’s no secret that I’ve been, and still am, a huge fan of Prince. I thought, like many of us, that he was a pure artist,” he told Collider in 2018. “I would and still do think about what he would do – like if I have a question about ‘should I do this or should I do that?’ I often think about what his perception would be even though I didn’t know him.”
