We’d forgive you if you were skeptical of Prince’s sense of humor. As a serious, longtime musician and someone who once wanted to be addressed as a symbol rather than a name, it didn’t always seem like a guy who liked to laugh at himself. But all that’s changed with one glorious piece of album art and song title.
This is Prince’s new single:
Yes, that’s Dave Chappelle as Prince holding a plate of pancakes for a song called “Breakfast Can Wait.”
Prince unveiled the homage of an homage cover art via Twitter, along with another Chappelle Show reference and a snippet from the song, proving he’s funnier than the rest of us. Bravo, Prince. Bravo.
