The lot is addressed to singer Kylie Minogue, who read the acceptance out on his behalf.

It reads: “Dear Kylie, please read this note in acceptance 4 the Best International Artist Award—Thank u! P.S.—In all my trips abroad, I can honestly say, I've never felt very far from home.

“As long as I live and there is an appreciation of what I do, I will continue to best. Peace and New Power, Prince.”
