Nic Cage Aggressively Sings Prince's 'Purple Rain' In LA Karaoke Bar After Divorce

Emily Reily 26 Apr 2019

Everyone loves to sing Prince's "Purple Rain." That's because it's good for any occasion: weddings, graduations, birthday parties, that time you got fired...

Nicolas Cage has found "Purple Rain" works even when you're getting a divorce after a runaway Vegas wedding.

1. No Honeymoon In Vegas

Consequence of Sound writes that in the annulment documents that Cage filed, they were "both drinking to the point of intoxication." What's more, Cage says Koike didn't tell him about her "relationship" with someone else.

Koike is now looking for spousal support. So Cage, 55, is getting by the best way he knows how: by ranting to Prince's powerful guitar ballad "Purple Rain."

4. What Would Prince Do?

Cage recently talked to Collider about how much he loves The Artist Formerly Known As:

“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. 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.”

Cage was spotted at an LA karaoke bar singing "Purple Rain," and of course there's video.

TMZ also caught wind of the performance and decided to share it with everyone.

It's cringeworthy.
