Prince Loses Role in Michael Jackson’s “Bad” Video to Wesley Snipes
“Prince was actually considered the lead character in the ‘Bad’ video, and then Michael met me and kicked Prince to the curb.”
Wesley Snipes recently sat down with Conan to clear up a very old rumor about a feud between him and Prince. He spoke about the time he auditioned for a key role in Michael Jackson‘s 18 minute short film “Bad” back in the 90’s and to much surprise Snipes actually won the part to Prince. Prince had originally won the gig but Snipes claimed he was kicked to the curb once he made his impression with Michael Jackson. “Me and Prince were auditioning together, and I blew Prince out of the water,” Snipes declared. “Michael had told Prince that he had the role, and then he met me.” Imagine how different that short film would’ve been if Prince was the lead? Check out the Snipes interview below.
