18. He had his own private hair salon
Prince’s unusual tastes also extended to his properties abroad. The star’s house in Marbella, Spain, boasted sea views and was also uniquely equipped with a hair salon. However, only the man himself was allowed to use it. Indeed, even ex-wife Mayte was forced to go elsewhere every time she wanted a trim.
17. He used to stand outside McDonald’s just to smell the food
Prince’s extravagant lifestyle as an adult was in stark contrast to his experiences growing up in a poor family. In fact, the star was so impoverished in his youth that he regularly stood outside McDonald’s. But it wasn’t to beg for money for food, he just wanted to inhale the aroma of the restaurant’s Big Macs and Chicken McNuggets.

He even insisted that journalists couldn’t jot down any notes because of how distracting he found it while talking.
