Prince sure has developed a sense of humor about himself, hasn’t he? First, the notoriously shy singer and guitarist put Dave Chapelle — dressed as Prince, holding a plate of pancakes — on the cover of his new single, “Breakfast Can Wait.” And while it would have been sooooo cool to have Dave Chappelle’s career comeback be an appearance in the music video for that song, Prince went another route, casting a female Prince look-a-like instead.

In a recent interview with Scotland’s The Herald, my all-around life idol, Stevie Nicks, revealed many heretofore unknown tidbits about herself that, of course, made me worship her even more.

1994 2004 ”Chapelle Show” sketch. In it, Charlie Murphy recalls a wild night spent at Prince’s mansion, where they played “shirts vs. blouses” basketball and ate pancakes.
Of course, this is not (probably?) actually the new Prince album cover, but it is an actual new song: Keep reading »
Katy Perry was snapped leaving a West Hollywood recording studio on Monday, in the above ensemble. Yeah, maybe she was working on her record. But we think it’s more likely, based on the frilly cravat she’s wearing, that she was simply jamming out to “Purple Rain.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
