Although he has been known to host pajama parties at his mansion, Prince is a relatively private celebrity (in fact, he doesn't even own a cellphone). On Wednesday, the singer made a rare public appearance on "The Arsenio Hall Show," which he "took over" to debut single "FunkNRoll" and perform songs "She's Always in My Hair" and "Mutiny" with band 3rd Eye Girl.

Here is "FunkNRoll":


And "She's Always in My Hair":

The 55-year-old musician launches his North American tour in June, but if you see him, please don't touch his hair.
