A vintage picture of Prince seems to indicate that the “Purple Rain” singer knew his destiny was written in the stars even before he was mega-famous.

The pass is currently up for auction online.
The up-and-coming Prince joined Rick James’s Fire It Up tour as the opening act in February 1980, following his own headlining club tour from November 1979-February 1980. Prince stole the show with his short, energetic set; James accused Prince of ripping off his act, stirring up animosity that lasted throughout their careers.
One Twitter user summed up Prince’s sentiment perfectly:
When you have a dream you have to be the first to know it and tell it.
