Nicolas Cage celebrated the anniversary of Prince‘s death on Sunday by singing “Purple Rain” at a karaoke bar in Los Angeles. TMZ, which has published a clip of the performance, describes the rendition as “emotional,” an apparent allusion to Cage’s recent marital drama. The actor married a makeup artist in Las Vegas last month and filed annulment paperwork four days later. He has claimed he was intoxicated when he tied the bow; the woman rejects the annulment request and instead wants a divorce. None of this quite explains why Cage’s Prince rendition sounds like Chad Kroeger off seven Jägerbombs, but in any case, you can watch the performance here.
