Famed eccentric musician Prince (the artist formerly known as ‘the artist formerly known as Prince’) will guest star on the hit TV show ‘New Girl’, it was announced the other day.

“Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is ready to paint the town purple when a chance encounter finds her and best friend Cece (Hannah Simone) invited to a once-in-a-lifetime mansion party thrown by music legend Prince, guest-starring as himself,” a description of the episode from Fox reads. “Not wanting to miss out on the fun, Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Coach (guest star Damon Wayans, Jr.) are determined to crash the festivities, building toward an unforgettable ending. The episode also will feature special guest cameo appearances. “

Although, according to executive producer Brett Baer, it was Prince who actually contacted the show about making a guest appearance since last year. He contacted the show’s stars and told them he was a big fan and wanted to work with them.

Can you imagine Prince calling you up and asking you if he can be a part of your performance?
