Prince Premieres 'Breakfast Can Wait' Music Video

October 12, 2013 04:06:59 GMT


For fans who were expecting to see iconic musician Prince in a music video for his new single "Breakfast Can Wait", they might have to wait until his next release as The Purple One does not appear in the newly-released one. And unlike in the amusing artwork for the single that the Grammy Award-winner posted on his 3rd Eye Girl Twitter account last August, it also does not feature comedian Dave Chappelle as Prince.

Impersonating the 55-year-old singer/songwriter in the Danielle Curiel-directed video is Curiel herself, dressed in Prince's "Purple Rain" costume complete with a big wig and drew-on moustache and holding an electric guitar. And just like funnyman Chapelle in the single artwork, Curiel holds up, although not a plateful, but instead a piece of pancake in reference to the morning meal.
