Prince to Make Funky Purple Appearance on New Girl (He's a 'Huge Fan')

As some of you may already know, Prince will be guest-starring on the New Girl, in an episode that will broadcast after the Superbowl. But the story behind this wonderful television event is really just the best: apparently he contacted the show's producer because "he's a big fan" and "knows everything about the show." PRINCE: he's just like you! Ha ha, just kidding, you are nothing like Prince.

Anyway, when Prince is not consuming a mystical tangerine or vibrating in tune with the cosmos, he is watching the New Girl. He really wants Nick and Jess to end up together.

According to executive producer Brett Baer, "His thing was all about getting to Jess and trying to bring out this inner part of her that hadn't been brought to the forefront. The word 'hip tips' was sort of the thing. He put it, I think I can give her some hip tips!" I would like some hip tips as well, please. [E!]

Yasmine Akram, who kissed Benedict Cumberbatch on TV, says that it's "lovely and very soft" to do so and one of her top ways to spend the afternoon. Guys, if you have time later today, try to fit in a Benedict Cumberbatch make-out session. It's even better than reading Bachelor recaps or playing with your cat. [ONTD spoiler alert!]

Gisele Bundchen was spotted riding around on an ATV without a helmet, clutching her baby (also without a helmet) with one hand and steering with the other. I'm all for not getting huffy about the maternal behaviors of celebrities, but this looks wildly unsafe. Guys, really, don't bring your baby on the ATV with you. [TMZ]

  • Willow Smith explained to V magazine why she turned down the role of Annie: "I just wanted to chill, and be at home, and decompress, and just find out what I wanna do and where I stand on this planet, with the little tiny place we have. I just feel like I want to do it different than the world's ready for." I'm not even going to tell you what sorts of things I was saying at her age (thirteen) because I'm retroactively ashamed. [E!]
