Prince made a rare TV appearance today on 'The View' to promote three shows he has coming up in Chicago to support a charity called 'Rebuild The Dream.'

The first thing you'll notice is Prince is now sporting an Afro, something he hasn't done in public for years, probably since this  high school photo.

In the short interview Prince talks a little about how Bruce Springsteen and James Brown could change a concert playlist on a moments notice and the band and performer would remain on the same page as a "well oiled machine" something Prince often does during his long concerts.
