Lil Mo doesn’t believe Prince is worthy of special treatment.

Over the weekend, Prince headlined the Essence Festival concert on Friday night at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Lil Mo was there and she expressed her frustration with an incident that took place during Prince’s concert on social media.

The R&B Divas: Atlanta star claims despite having a VIP pass police didn’t allow her to go to the restroom because Prince was walking through backstage before he went on onstage. She vented her frustration on Instagram while throwing shade at Prince. Read what she said below.



The songstress than posted:


It didn’t take long for Prince fans to slam Lil Mo for her comments. Read a few below.

“but wait you have a VIP all access pass tho!!! You must’ve won that from 92q cause real celebs don’t need those to walk freely back stage! Sit ya short big lip ass in the corner some damn where and be quiet!! You haven’t been relevant in 13 years… Shit you wasn’t relevant then lol”

“First of all I had to Google your ass to even know who u were. Second no matter what you do you will never be at his level. Prince is music royalty. No he hasn’t had an album in a few years but you still hear all his old shit in the radio. Sounds like someone has a little celebrity attitude to but it didn’t work for you. So in the words of Ice Cube…….BYE FELICIA.”

“Real celebs, even HAS BEENS, don’t need a PASS to mingle with their peers, and last I checked Prince didn’t work for a security company so why is your hatefulness directed at him? You need to take several fuckin seats and perhaps get some class about yourself. #crabsinabucket #whenkeepingitrealgoeswrong”




After Prince performed and got settled, it appears the Purple Rain singer threw out some subliminal shade. Without mentioning Lil Mo’s name, Prince took a shot at her clothing on Twitter. He posted the photo below with the caption: “I hope she know, none of her clothes match.”
