Prince booked his New Girl role because he “knows everything about the show”

Suggesting that a mundane domestic existence awaits even those who once purred “I sincerely want to fuck the taste out of your mouth” into a microphone, the co-showrunners of New Girl told E! that it was Prince’s extensive knowledge of their show that led to the musician’s upcoming visit with Zooey Deschanel and company. “He knows everything about the show,” Brett Baer said, leaving out whether or not The Purple One was a fan from the start or if he jumped on the bandwagon after the members of 3rd Eye Girl told him the show got really good in the middle of season one. Firming up Prince’s fan bona fides, he specifically requested to be involved in the Nick-Jess relationship, clearly sensing that development would need some added tension by the midpoint of season three. “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,” Baer told E! “The word hip tips was sort of the thing. He put it, I think I can give her some hip tips!” Though if Prince were a true New Girl diehard, he’d know that the only hip tips the fictional couple requires can be found in the tracks of Nick’s Sexy Mix, embedded deep in the bass breakdown from “You Can Call Me Al.”
