Prince Will Appear On ‘New Girl.’ Wait, What?

princeYeah, we gather that Prince, his purple majesty, likes to crash out in front of the TV on Tuesday nights and watch Zooey Deschanel on New Girl. There is officially nothing left for us to be surprised about.

Unless he were to appear on the sitcom, having pitched his own idea to the producers that they do an episode involving his famous, real-life pajama parties. Which is what is happening.

This is highly irregular.

The episode will air after the Super Bowl on February 2nd.

Prince Releases “Breakfast Can Wait” Video

Last week we brought you a quick preview of Prince’s new single, “Breakfast Can Wait.” The clip featured shots of a well-choreographed dance routine, but absolutely no images of the man himself. The full video has now been released, and even without appearing in the clip Prince makes it known he’s back to reclaim the throne as pop’s sexiest male vocalist.

Opening on a young couple clearly doing their best to start the day, the new video from Prince plays coy with the subject at the center of “Breakfast Can Wait.” As the man tries to make his way out the door, his lover pulls him close for a little morning intimacy, and viewers are suddenly taken to a world where all emotion is expressed through dance. Okay, it’s really just a dance studio filled with a team being lead by the aforementioned female star of the clip, but the intent of the transition remains the same. Her wholesome demeanor has been replaced with leather and attitude, which is a look matched by seemingly everyone else on set. The track plays on, pumping as much sensuality through the speakers as one imagines is possible, and the dance routine becomes increasingly complex along the way. You can view the video at the end of this post.

It does not take long to understand the underlying message of “Breakfast Can Wait,” but that does not dampen the overall impact of the song or video. The only part the really confuses the viewer is the female Prince impersonator, which fans on Reddit will have surely dissect for deeper meaning in the days ahead.

Prince has yet to announce plans for a new album or tour, but the release of “Breakfast Can Wait” lead us to believe he has something on the horizon.

Prince Releases “Breakfast Can Wait” Teaser

It has been years since Prince released an album, but throughout 2013 he has surfaced a number of times to tease new material, and today may be the best update yet.

Over the summer, a hilarious cover image was revealed for a new Prince single titled “Breakfast Can Wait.” The image, which features comedian Dave Chapelle impersonating The Purple One, became a viral sensation without a single note of music, then faded out of headlines almost as soon as it arrived. We remembered the artwork, but had forgotten about the song, to be honest, until last week, when the song arrived at radio. Now we have the official music video teaser.

Directed by Danielle Curiel, the video for “Breakfast Can Wait” looks to tell a story through the art of dance. There is no sign of Prince in the visuals so far, but the movie-quality cinematography is more than enough to entertain in his absence. You can expect the full video to surface in the days ahead.

Prince and his team are remaining tight-lipped about a new album or tour, but it stands to reason something bigger than a single release is likely in the works. Follow OurStage on Twitter to ensure you never miss another headline. Continue reading ‘Prince Releases “Breakfast Can Wait” Teaser’

EditoriaList: 10 Best And Worst Super Bowl Halftime Performances

The Super Bowl Halftime Show has become an overblown spectacle of such proportions and delusionary grasping at the straws of musical-artistic relevancy that it quite simply may never be good again. Yet there have been some standout performances – mostly those that concentrate on actual performing. There were some very dark years here and there that were not focused on the artists and their music as much as the pageantry (I’m looking at you Disney), so I didn’t even count those. There were also a lot of ‘meh’ moments that are not really worth getting into.

Worst

2000: PHIL COLLINS, CHRISTINA AGUILERA, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS, TONI BRAXTON

I don’t remember this and I’m not going to watch it, but it’s awful. It’s literally the worst thing I’ve never seen.

Prince Returns; Debuts New Single “Screwdriver”

No need for a Little Red Corvette that travels through time in order to appreciate this bit of news! Prince, the one and only artist to ever referred to publicly as “the artist formerly known as” before returning to his original stage name, has returned to the rock world with the release of his new single, “Screwdriver.” The song is the first new material to be released from the “Purple Rain” hitmaker since 2010′s 20Ten, and it blasts through the speakers with the as much energy as any of the aging star’s earlier work. You can stream the single below.

Prince has yet to announce any plans for an album or tour, but it seems very likely such plans could be revealed in his upcoming Billboard cover story. We’ll keep an eye out for updates and let you know as soon as something changes. Until then, comment below and let us know what you think of Prince’s latest.

Prince Performs New Single On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Supported by a massive backing band, Prince took to the outdoor stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to play his funky new single “Rock ‘n’ Roll Love Affair.” Honky–tonk piano, swelling horn lines and bluesy guitar lines sizzle throughout the bluesy rock tune. With Prince’s noted aversion to YouTube, who knows how long this clip might stay online, so check it out while it lasts.

Prince isn’t the only funk rocker to perform on the Kimmel stage recently, though. OurStage’s own Eclectic Approach took the show by storm with their fiery performance on October 1st. The band was the first featured OurStage act to play on Kimmel after being selected from the OurStage Panel Competition. Check out some backstage footage of the band before their Kimmel performance and keep your eyes peeled for more performances from OurStage acts coming up on the show!

Exclusive Q and A: Darius Rucker Talks Prince, His Next Album and “Hootie”

OurStage Exclusive InterviewsThese are exciting times for Darius Rucker. Not only is he out on the “Own the Night” tour with Lady Antebellum but he’s ready to release his third album. The hotly-anticipated record will follow the much-loved 2010 release Charleston SC 1966 that debuted at the top of the country charts and his now-platinum debut album Learn to Live, which was released in 2008. And that’s just the beginning.

He’s musically partnered with a host of other artists, including Lionel Richie for a duet of “Stuck on You” which is on Richie’s album Tuskegee. He also remains very involved in several high-profile charity events, including this month’s Third Annual  ”Darius and Friends” benefit show in Nashville which raised money for St. Jude Children Research Hospital.

Rucker took time out from his busy schedule to talk to OurStage about his new album, his current tour, and just what inspired him to become a musician, anyway.

OS: So what can audiences expect at your upcoming shows?

DR: We will probably be playing the new single soon. When I play, audiences can expect a lot of music from both records [Learn to Live released in 2008 and Charleston SC 1066] and some cool cover songs. I’m just trying to have fun.

OS: On the fan boards, some folks say you always play Prince’s “Purple Rain.” Why do you play it so often?

DR: I always wanted to play it! The funny thing was, I was rehearsing with the band and my drummer (the band leader) said “Have you ever wanted to play ‘Purple Rain?’” I had never played it because I didn’t know if it would work in a country set. Now we always play it. If I don’t play it, I get nasty emails. So we are always playing it now.
