If you've never heard Prince in serious conversation, it's illuminating, for sure. Prince sat down with PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley for a conversation to be aired on Monday and Tuesday of next week; here are a few teasers.

Smiley, whose features on music usually tend to be at the lighter, cheesier, more quiet-storm end of the r&b spectrum, does, indeed, draw Prince out in the clips, and it'll be interesting to see what else Smiley is able to squeeze from the Artist. Those two programs air in LA on KCET, and will run at 11 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.

No word on whether they talk about hamburgers.
