Rapper Kanye West may be one of the most confident stars in the charts, but even he grew starstruck after seeing Prince at the Brit Awards last night (15FEB06).

The DIAMONDS FROM SIERRA LEONE hitmaker and diminutive superstar Prince both performed at the London ceremony, while West picked up International Male Solo Artist.

After watching Prince perform his megahit Purple Rain from backstage, West admits he was too shy to approach the singer for an autograph.

West says, "I really want to ask for a signed picture, but he's so famous you don't dare ask. You gotta respect the legends."
