How tall is Prince? Prince stands 5 feet, 2 inches tall, according to most sources, which might explain why he’s always wearing heels. Of course, the singer, songwriter, dancer, actor, and multi-instrumentalist born Prince Rogers Nelson packs a lot of talent into that tiny frame. The artist formerly known as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has also won a Grammy and a Golden Globe and starred in four films, among them the smash “Purple Rain.” Dude’s short, but he’s a bona fide showbiz giant.

Standing 5 feet, 2 inches, Prince is one of the music’s all-time shortest superstars. Paul Simon (5 feet, 3 inches), Usher (5 feet, 8 inches), and U2 singer Bono (5 feet, 7.5 inches)—all considered short—are taller, as was Bob Marley, who stood 5 feet, 7 inches. In Hollywood terms, the Purple One is shorter than Jack Black (5 feet, 6 inches), Tom Cruise (5 feet, 7 inches), and even Dustin Hoffman (5 feet, 5 inches). Prince is taller, however, than Danny Devito (5 feet even) and Verne “Mini Me” Troyer (2 feet, 8 inches).
Prince may be short, but as “Chappelle’s Show” fans know, cat can ball. Even if he’s dressed like a figure skater, he’ll shoot the J right in your face. After he and his boys have schooled you on the basketball court, he’ll invite you inside and serve you pancakes. Never mind that he’s 5 feet, 2 inches—this is a man to look up to.
