Sherri Shepherd Nearly Breaks Down Over Surprise Prince Appearance On 'The View' (VIDEO)

Sherri Shepherd channeled her inner lovestruck teenager when Prince made a surprise visit to "The View" on Thursday.
The rock icon was there to promote his upcoming tour, with free tickets for all of the co-hosts. But it was Sherri who basically lost all control, so overcome was she by his appearance.

While the others chatted with Prince about his tour and his thoughts on Justin Bieber, Sherri sat next to him, hand on heart, breathing deeply. Her two questions? "Will you say, 'Sherri, I love you?'" and "can I have your glove?" Prince obliged on the first, but declined to give her his glove.

"You don't understand!" she said. "I've wanted to make love to you for my whole life!"
