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. Eighteen-year-old Danielle Curel not only pulls off an on-point Prince impersonation, but she also directed the video. Prince himself — besides his voice and sweet guitar licks, obvs — is nowhere to be found. Watch above!
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. Spoiler alert: She might have kind of, sort of dated Prince for a minute AND she has written a bunch of “Game of Thrones”-themed poetry, although she has yet to share it with the public. Coming soon, Knowing Nothing, Knowing Everything, a poem inspired by Jon Snow by Stevie Nicks. We can only hope. After the jump, the best of what she had to say, for you other rabid Stevie fangirls and boys out there. Keep reading »
Prince is finally on Twitter, you guys, and it’s just about as wonderful as you might expect. The Purple One actually has a sense of humor about himself, or so it would seem based on the new album artwork he just posted via the social media site. Prince, or someone in his entourage made a “Breakfast Can Wait” album cover, inspired by a
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]

The next time you think you’re weird or kinky or especially twisted in bed, think of Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei. He’s the younger brother of the Sultan of Brunei and apparently quite the perv. The prince allegedly had six life-size erotic sculptures of himself made, along with sexy sculptures of his fiancee, who is part of his harem. Yes, we said harem. The statues were discovered at the Prince’s Long Island estate, which is currently in litigation after two of the Prince’s advisers sold the property for much less than he believed it was worth. In the photos we’ve seen, the erotic sculptures include perfectly molded jean shorts (so, kinky and unfashionable). As you can imagine, the Prince is trying to keep images and mention of the sculptures out of the press — and out of his court case. No such luck. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
“The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give away my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it. The internet’s like MTV. At one time, MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”
—Prince — is he still going by that name? — explains why he has closed his official website and banned iTunes and MySpace from using his music, even as his new album 20TEN comes out [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
For a long time, I was certain the artist formerly known as Prince (or is he Prince again? I get confused) was an alien. Turns out, he’s just a Jehovah’s Witness. After a lifetime of sexy dancing, the 50-something-year-old is in need of a double hip replacement, trading in his raspberry beret for a diamond-encrusted cane. But alas his highness has refused the surgery, citing his religious beliefs as his reason. Evidently, Jehovah’s Witnesses aren’t down with blood transfusions. [Celebitchy] — Or maybe he doesn’t want the doctors to discover his true alien identity? Hmmm.
