DROP EVERYTHING, EMMY COMMITTEE. You need to start engraving PRINCE on the following awards: Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy, Outstanding Guest Actor in Any Type of Show, Outstanding Actor The End.
The sound of ukelele tears and quirky sadness is filling the FOX studio lot today because Zooey Deschanel’s sing-hole just found out it’s about to face the steepest of competition very soon. E! Online is reporting that Prince, aka the only voice that matters, is set to make an upcoming guest appearance on New Girl:
The music icon is set to appear in the Fox comedy’s Super Bowl episode, and will interfere with the show’s much-loved coupling of Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel), sources confirm to E! News.
This marks Prince’s first-ever appearance on a TV comedy, and he will be playing himself. We’re told that Prince is a fan of New Girl and asked to come on the show a while ago.
“A while ago”? What took you so long?! You gave Taylor Swift a guest spot before Prince? FOR SHAME. You don’t seem to understand the level of power yore dealing with; this is the same man who played the Grammys and made Beyoncé his backup singer. So if Prince says he likes your show, you invite him to appear in every single episode. And if Prince tells you he’s decided to play a character named “Greg the chatty Jehova’s Witness” or “Black Mrs. Roper“, you fucking let him.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go imagine Prince curling up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn to watch New Girl aka The World’s Cutest Visual. Oh my god, he probably calls it “The Zooey Show” or something equally clueless and charming. “Vanity 6! Hurry up and bring the Snickers bites from the kitchen, The Zooey Show is almost on!” This is too precious.
