Prince Gets Meta On His New Album Cover

By Michael August 20, 2013 @ 3:51 PM

Prince’s new album cover for “Breakfast Can Wait” isn’t a picture of the real prince, it’s Dave Chappelle. The picture is a screengrab from a classic sketch on Chappelle Show in which Charlie Murphy tells the tale of playing basketball with Prince…and losing. Then Prince made them pancakes. This was back before Chappelle went fucking nuts and flew to Africa to find himself or some shit. It’s an interesting choice for Prince. It’s pretty meta, which all the kids are into these days. I miss him putting hot chicks with big ‘ol titties riding on purple motorcycles or whatever on his albums.

Prince kicked Kim Kardashian off stage (not literally)

Kim Kardashian and her lover Kris Humphries went to see Prince last night in New York, when suddenly she was pulled on stage to dance with him!!!

And then she was promptly kicked off stage because she basically just stood there. E! says…

(Prince invited Kim) onstage during his show tonight at Madison Square Garden, but gave her the high-heeled boot when she was initially too fazed to get funky.
Or maybe he was annoyed that she was tweeting midperformance

They’re not kidding. She really was

– “OMG Prince just pulled me up on stage!!! I’m shaking!!!!”
– “I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!!”
– “Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself! We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!”

So apparently she was just nervous the first time. Which is actually sort of cute. People should really re-think their opinion of Kim because she’s not the whore Paris Hilton is, but they get lumped together because of the sex tape. You never hear about Kim getting drunk and sleeping around, she usually has a boyfriend, and she rarely wears anything slutty when she goes out, like she would if she were some dirty Italian.

I’ve been trying for like 20 hours to find a decent copy of Prince at Coachella doing a cover of "Creep" by Radiohead, but it's impossible because Prince is a temperamental fairy and he told his record label to remove every copy they find, even though he didn’t shoot the video and he very obviously doesn’t own the song. The Huff Post says…

After word spread that Prince covered Radiohead's "Creep" at Coachella, the tens of thousands who couldn't be there ran to YouTube for a peek. Everyone was quickly denied – even Radiohead. In a recent interview, Thom Yorke said he heard about Prince's performance from a text message and thought it was "hilarious." Yorke laughed when his bandmate, guitarist Ed O'Brien, said the blocking had prevented him from seeing Prince's version of their song. "Really? He's blocked it?" asked Yorke, who figured it was their song to block or not. "Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment." Yorke added: "Well, tell him to unblock it. It's our song."

This whole thing does bring up some interesting questions about copyright and digital ownership. The other day a reporter asked me what I thought about new media and whether old copyright laws can still apply. So I asked him about new media and whether old copyright laws can still apply. Two can play this little game.
