The New Girl Crew Had To Burn All Evidence Of The Kardashians Before Prince Appeared On The Show

The New Girl Crew Had To Burn All Evidence Of The Kardashians Before Prince Appeared On The Show

The Debrief: When Prince appeared on New Girl, he wanted to make sure that only celebrities who would REALLY have been at a Prince party would make cameos. This did not include the Kardashians.

Another day, another story about the unbelievably wonderful creature that was Prince.

If you're a New Girl fan, you'll remember last season an epsiode when Zooey Deschanel and the rest of the gang get invited (through rather tenuous circumstances but who gives a crap it's Prince) to a party at Prince's house. The reason this epsiode happened? Prince just fucking loved New Girl and got his people to email Zooey Deschanel asking if he could appear. Zooey obviously said yes.

'It was surprising because I wouldn't have pegged him as a New Girl fan.' She said when she appeared on Conan O' Brien on Monday. 'It did feel random. Obviously a huge compliment but I was definitely more than suprised.'

Because the fictional party on the show was a party hosted by Prince, Prince's people wanted to make sure the celebrities who appeared at the party were people who would actually appear at a bonafide Prince party. In the end, these celebrities ended up being  Victoria's Secret models Alessandra Ambrosio, Ana Beatriz Barros and Lais Ribeiro, but originally the cast was set to include some other celebrities...

'Someone was friends with some of the Kardashians and had made a phone call and they had come on to shoot a little cameo part where they were at Prince's party.' Said Zooey on the Conan show. 'I get there on the day that Prince is due to arrive and I'm studying my lines and one of the PAs comes in and she's like, "I need all of the scripts", she takes mine from me and takes everyone elses' and the call sheets which say all the names of everyone and the times things are happening and I'm like, "what is going on?"

Things only got weirder. 'I walk outside and she has like a bonfire,' Zooey continued. 'She's burning all the scripts and the call sheets and it turns out that someone from Prince's camp was like, "Who are all the celebrities? I hope it's not a Kardashian." Which is sad because I think Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner had very kindly come in, shot the scene and then they made them get out fast - they didn't want anyone to pass by each other!'

She finishes, 'I felt so bad because obviously everyone had gone out of their way to be there on that day but Prince was running the show so obviously...'

There you go kids, proof that once upon a time there were celebrities who wielded more power than the Kardashians. RIP Prince, you awesome dude.
