Nia Long Recalls Her Special Encounter With Prince 

As many continue to share their fond memories and personal experiences with Prince, actress Nia Long recalled an encounter, 27 years ago, when the music legend asked her on a date and she declined.

Why in the world would Nia decline a date with Prince? At the time, she believed he was out of her league.

Nia wrote:

At 18 I met him in a club. We talked. He asked me out. Believing he was out of my league, I declined.

Years later we met again at my 21st birthday party in NYC. We sat in a booth together and talked about his love of my short hair. I expressed my love of his music and style.

I wonder if he remembers me? I will never forget my encounters with PRINCE. RIP #LadyCabDriver
