Remember when the late, great pop icon Prince made a cameo in the comedy TV series New Girl in 2014?
Whether you do or don't, something that happened behind the scenes of the shoot is sure to make you appreciate that episode and the artist's star status all the more.
Apparently Prince had the Kardashians thrown off the cast list for a scheduled cameo that they were supposed to shoot for episode, and get this, he even demanded that the crew should build a bonfire and then throw the Kardashians' part in the script into it.
New Girl star Zooey Deschanel revealed the details of what happened in her recent appearance on Conan last Monday.
“I get there the day Prince is supposed to arrive and I’m studying my lines and one of the PAs comes in and she’s like, ‘I need to take all of the sides, the scripts,’” Deschanel recalled “I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ I walk outside, and she has, like, a bonfire. She’s burning all the scripts and the call sheets.”
Ever the sweet girl, Zooey felt sorry for them. "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"she said.
Apparently Kris Kenner and Khloe Kardashian had already arrived on set to make an appearance in a party scene. "Someone was friends with some of the Kardashians and had made a phone call and they had kindly come on to shoot a kind of cameo part," explained Zooey, but no one informed Prince and someone in his camp reviewed the call sheet.
"It turns out that someone from Prince's camp said 'Who are the celebrities? I hope it's not a Kardashian.'" Zooey said.
I guess real legends aren't that impressed with reality stars , no matter how famous or how much money they make.
