Prince - Prince Refused To Sign Celine's Banner

Prince refused to sign Celine Dion's wall of fame when he went to check out her Caesars Palace show in Las Vegas because he didn't have a name at the time.

The Canadian singer began what has become a 10-year residency at the casino resort in 2003 and was so thrilled when stars started coming to see her, she asked them to sign a canvas billboard backstage.

She says, "I said, 'Just in case somebody (famous) comes... I'll make them sign it and I'll collect autographs for my kids.'

"They all came - Barbra Streisand, Michael Jackson, Silence of the Lambs (Sir Anthony Hopkins), he signed... Oprah Winfrey.

"The only person who didn't sign, because he didn't own a name... was Prince. He said, 'I have no name right now, I'm a sign!'"
