New Girl Promo Photo Fox
The one and only PRINCE will be making a rare TV appearance on the Fox hit sitcom "New Girl" that will air on Super Bowl Sunday.

The Super Bowl airs on Fox Feb. 2nd, 2014.

The cast of "New Girl" will be graced by music royalty as Prince will appear on the show playing himself. The premise for the show is to be centered around his notorious star-studded house parties where he performs so you might be seeing even more stars on this show. Will his new band 3RDEYEGIRL be with him?

For the past week, Hollywood Insiders have been buzzing about this news although confidentiality agreements were in place. Even Hannah Simone who plays CeCe on the show had to hint about the "Big Deal Alert" last night and Prince retweeted it this morning via @3RDEYEGIRL

A source, speaking on anonymity told DrFunkenberry.com exclusively "Prince actually reached out to the show. He is a big fan and wanted to do it. We were blown away and agreed immediately."

Prince is no stranger to the acting medium, starring in the hit movie "Purple Rain" in which he won an Oscar for "Best Soundtrack".

This is the music legend's First Sitcom Network Television Debut.

Prince & Janelle Monae Design: LV

Those three PRINCE shows at Mohegan Sun Arena just got a little bit funkier as Janelle Monae will be performing at the December 29th show!

Janelle made the announcement via her Instagram and Twitter feed within the past half hour.

Here is a link for the December 29th show

Here is a link for the December 27th, and 28th shows as well.

At The Billboard Woman Of The Year Awards, a quote from Prince was used for Janelle:

"To the only person who worries me as an opening act: they could never praise you enough for your gift to all of them. Keep on giving 'em what we love!" -Prince

We saw Janelle open up for Prince in 2011 during his Welcome 2 America tour and that same night, Stevie Wonder came up to jam with Prince and Sheila E. on "Superstition". It was such an amazing night all around.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Recently, 3RDEYEGIRL stated on Twitter that they would perform "Given' Em What They Love" together with Janelle Monae at least once. Will this be the time?

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?
