Whitney Welcome at Prince Shows ’4 All of Eternity’

In the span of just a week, Whitney Houston jumped onstage with Prince, returned to rehab, and got banned from future Prince shows for "erratic behavior, coupled with repeated and excessive ticket demands." Sort of -- turns out the ban wasn't cleared with the Purple One himself, who set the record straight with an extremely Princely statement: "She's always welcome 4 all of eternity."

All of eternity is a really long time (especially if you're a Scientologist). But maybe Prince felt bonded to Houston 4eva when they showed up at the 1994 World Music Awards wearing variations of the same dress. The full statement was actually, "Whitney Houston is always welcome at Prince shows 4 all of eternity. Seeing her at 2 shows at The Forum in LA was a treat, especially when she sang with Chaka Khan and danced with Prince during his set. We love her always." So either Prince requires his staff communicates in his own special way, or Prince is referring to himself as the royal we. Either way, we are not mad!
