Prince once fired Questlove from a DJ gig, replaced him with Finding Nemo DVD

Yesterday, Pixar released the much-anticipated first trailer for Finding Dory, the sequel to Finding Nemo. Though most were happy to welcome Hollywood’s favorite fish back into their lives after nearly a decade, Questlove shared a much different opinion, along with a very interesting anecdote involving the one and only Prince.

In a tweet this afternoon, The Roots member recounted an incident in which The Purple One dismissed him from a DJ gig at a club. Questlove’s replacement? Apparently, Prince promptly put on a Finding Nemo DVD for the audience. As much as I love that 2003 film, if I were Questlove, I’d probably feel a little burned by Dory, too.

In related news, Prince recently announced his Piano & A Microphone Tour, which is exactly what it sounds like.
