HELP - Looking for Video link where Prince tells audience about his "close friend George Michael".

Hi, I'm looking for a short 10-15 second video I saw the otherday where I believe Prince announces to an audience referencing "His close friend George Michael" (or something close to that). I saw it the other day and cannot find it and it's driving me nuts. If you have the link please let me know. Thanks you!

You are so awesome, I'm making a tribute video of George Michael and at the end of it I'm going to try and use this as if Prince is introducing George Michael to Heaven. - Thank You!!

Prince shared a message of support for George Michael in 1994 during Michael’s struggle to leave his recording contract with Sony.

In the 1980’s, Michael referred to his situation as “professional slavery”. During an interview with Q Magazine, Prince shared a message of support for Michael.

Prince references the case in the 1994 interview, showing his support for Michael’s bid for freedom before revealing that the pair speak. You can read the excerpt below. You can read the full interview on the prince.org fan forum.

He mentions George Michael’s court case for the first time. It’s a subject he’ll return to with astonishing regularity and persistence. At one point, he almost shouts, “Why can’t George Michael do what he wants? Why can’t he write a ballet if he wants to?” What he is talking about is artistic freedom and its place in the future. By the end of the rant, and it is a rant, I suggest that he should get in touch with George Michael as he might find such supportive words encouraging. “Oh,” he says breezily. “We speak.”

Prince said* something like "Peace to Aerosmith, Peace to George Michael... but death to Prince..." eek

^ he wished peace to those performing that night, it wasn't unusual Prince telling "death to Prince" he said that at his concerts as well in the mid 90s, usually he added "Long live the new power generation"....

(this was during the prince Symbol era)

*) by memory, may not be exact....
