Open Post: Hosted By LeBron James Dressed As Prince And Singing “Purple Rain”

November 1, 2015 / Posted by:

Halloween is officially over for another year, and what better way to say goodbye to the unofficial holiday of questionable fuckery than with this video of LeBron James belting out “Purple Rain” in Prince drag. I literally have no idea what the context of this is. Obviously the best guess is that it’s from an NBA Halloween party. But why is he singing? You know what, I don’t need to know why. This is one of those “It’s better not to know how the sausage is made” situations. Sure, LeBron’s version of Prince looks like what you’d get if The Kid fell into the gene-splicing machine from The Fly while clutching a jar of creatine powder, but who cares? Buff Prince singing “Purple Rain” is feeling it, and I can appreciate that.

In the event “Purple Rain” doesn’t do it for you, there’s also a video floating around of LeBron singing “When Doves Cry“. Now if only there was a video of LeBron dressed as Prince challenging Prince dressed as Charlie Murphy to a basketball game (crosses fingers).
