On the eve of his multi-venue tour in London, Prince held a news conference Tuesday – in the living room of British singer Lianne La Havas, whom he met when she performed in the States.

With about a dozen people in the room, he talked about his love of tea, something he shares with La Havas.

OK, to the important stuff, courtesy of the Associated Press.

On why he recently sued fans whose Facebook pages were selling bootlegs

"Nobody sues fans. It's just a poor way to phrase it. A bootlegger is a bootlegger, a scalper is a scalper. They know what time it is. Just sharing music with each other — that's cool. It's the selling that becomes the problem."

On whether he’ll play England’s famous Glastonbury Festival in June

"I can't think of the festival now."

On how he feels about this summer’s 30th anniversary of his hit movie and soundtrack, “Purple Rain”

"I don't look back”
