"Anyone who wants to do a tribute to Prince is welcome to," she captioned on Instagram. "Whatever your age Gender or skin Color. If you loved him and he inspired you then show it!!!! I love Prince 4 ever."

She then posted a video of herself dancing to underscore this don't-give-a-f-ck attitude. "This is my 'I'm not your bitch don't hang your shit on me' Dance," she shared.
