PRINCE’s “Breakfast Can Wait” Named One Of Top Videos Of 2013!

Danielle Curiel/PRINCE

PRINCE's "Breakfast Can Wait" video directed by Daniele Curiel has been named one of the top videos of 2013!

We remember how fans were upset when they found out Prince was not in the video at first.

Consequence of Sound has the video at Number 18 of it's top 25 videos of the year countdown.

COS had this to say as why the video was chosen:

Prince actually can be funny if he wants to be. The Minnesota legend is often stylish, sometimes sensual, usually over the top, but rarely humorous.

This is also the same man who recruited teenager Danielle Curiel to direct and choreograph the “Breakfast Can Wait” video, which features a Prince stand-in that’s funny merely by existence. There are also the extended dance sequences that work as a sexual metaphor. This is a video for a man who made a song that led to all those parental advisory stickers. Times are changing, and for Prince it means making PG-13 worthy euphemisms that are left field, but still delightful. Pretty much everything can wait when Prince is actually having some fun.

"Breakfast Can Wait" also made Rolling Stone's list of top 100 songs of 2013.

Congrats to PRINCE & Danielle Curiel!-DocFB

Diagnosis: Grammy Nominations are on Friday. Will we see a few nominations for PRINCE?

  1. I di’dnt know where to find this info then kaboom it was here.

  2. It’s hard to find Diamonds in a Gold mine!…
    Opening doors for young talented women is courageous, and forward thinking. One needs to know the goals to understand the decisions.   Prince might be many things but Lazy? I think not. 
    I have a feeling we might have an iceberg situation here, but I’m just guessing~the truth will out and love will endure. 🙂

  3. Prince isn’t doing the work to be groundbreaking in his videos anymore like the Gett Off, Sexy MF, Partyman, Diamonds & Pearls & Gold daze. He’s being lazy by handing over the directorial, choreography and storyboard roles to an 18 year old. But then again, Prince has an inexperienced woman in her 20s being his manager instead of an Irving Azoff, so he hasn’t always made the best decisions and continues to do so.

  4. Sorry but this video was a major disappointment.  Awards do not equal quality.  The video does not match the song nor the quality and maturity level normally associated with Prince and in no way reflects the true meaning of Breakfast Can Wait.

  5. Whoever wrote the COS review didn’t even know that Danielle is the Prince Stand in. Too funny. The video WOULD be one of the best of the year had:

    1/ Prince been all through it
    2/ Dave Chappelle had been in it playing Prince, complete with pancakes, just like on the meaningless cover of the single. Why meaningless? Cause Dave ain’t in the video as Prince. 

    A HUGE disappointment.

  6. The video is nice, but to be honest I would have preferred seeing Prince himself in it, instead of an impersonation. Overall though, great job done by a very young girl in directing the video. I love the song – that is classic Prince! 🙂
    And yes, it would be well-deserved if he got some Grammy nominations this year!
    I wonder how the song is doing, given that it is available on ITunes, Amazon and 3rdeyetunes … I hope that lots and lots of people bought and downloaded this great tune! 🙂
    Looking forward to more new music from Prince in 2014!

  7. Groovy…

  8. As late in the year that the video for “Breakfast Can Wait” was produced, that’s pretty awesome for it to hit in the Top 25 at Consequence of Sound. Congrats to Prince and Danielle Curiel and all the rest involved.
