Rock 'n' roll legend Little Richard has accused Prince of copying his style.

The TUTTI FRUTTI singer, often revered as one of the original architects of rock 'n' roll, believes he's heavily influenced Prince's musical and fashion choices.

He says, "(Prince) took a lot from me, but he acts like he don't even know you. I was wearing (heeled) shoes when he was born.

"The only difference is he has to have a high heel because he wants to be real tall. He has to wear a high heel in and out and I wear them out.

"I love Prince, he's a genius. He's a great musician."
