London: Pop superstar Prince has vowed to dress "smartly" in public after a fan failed to recognise him when he wore "raggedy" clothes.

The 53-year-old singer, who is famous for his sense of dressing, admitted he wants to don smart clothes as he wants to leave a good impression on his fans, reported a website.

"(I miss) when I could walk the street without being arassed and bothered.

"It happened very fast (becoming famous). I had some old clothes on because I was going to help a friend move house and some girls came by and one went: `Ohmigod, it`s Prince!`
And the other girl went, `That ain`t Prince`.

"I didn`t come out raggedy after that," said the Grammy award winning singer.
