Prince and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger party after the People's Choice Awards
The Ministry has learned that on-and-off Pussycat Dolls front woman Nicole Scherzinger got an A-list treat after her People's Choice Awards performance Wednesday night: a private audience with Prince at Bardot Hollywood.
The singers had the Jason Scoppa-run spot opened just for their purposes -- something the Purple One is fond of doing (he even hosted his recent Christmas Eve bash there, with about 50 guests).
Prince and Scherzinger listened to music and hung out with the likes of the Black Eyed Peas' Will.I.Am until about 4 a.m., a partygoer said.
Check out Nicole's People's Choice Awards performance -- that's the video embedded above -- then get arrivals photos of Taylor Lautner, Leah Michelle, Carrie Underwood, Mary J. Blige and more here.
