PrinceSetting up shop in London for the next three weeks, Prince wants things his way at the Dorchester Hotel -- very, very dark.

"He wants everything to be black, from the curtains and carpets to all the furniture," an insider tells the Daily Star. "His entourage even asked for a black M&Ms machine, as well as an oxygen bar which will be manned by a team of foxy women." Hey, Apollonia is probably available -- it's her birthday!!

Earlier this year, Prince reportedly asked organizers of the BRIT Awards to instruct people backstage not to look him in the eye. Little man, big demands!
