Prince Gives Love Advice, Sings with Zooey Deschanel on ‘New Girl’
By Jillian Mapes
When we first heard that Prince — yep, that Prince — was a huge fan of the Zooey Deschanel sitcom New Girl, we thought, ‘hey, we all have our TV vices, that’s cool.’ Then we heard that he’s legit really into the Fox show, as in, he ‘ships’ Zooey’s character, Jess, and her roommate-turned-boyfriend, Nick.
So needless to say, we were pretty curious about what his elaborate cameo on the post-Super Bowl episode of New Girl would be like. As it turns out, the Purple One was very funny and a bit meta when it came to poking fun at his own cryptic image.
The main takeaway is: Prince is way cooler than anyone on New Girl, even when he’s trying to sex-up Deschanel whilst simultaneously giving her love advice, whooping her ass in ping-pong and feeding her pancakes. (Sidenote: Has Prince always liked pancakes, or is this a relatively new development? Paisley Park personnel, please confirm.)
Oh, and Zooey and Prince performed a song together. She takes lead, and from what we can tell it’s unreleased but likely called “Do You Wanna Fall In Love?”. If it involves a party at Prince’s house, then yes, yes we do want to fall in love.
