Prince's 'Breakfast Can Wait' album cover 

I meant to post about this earlier this week because when I first found out, I laughed out loud. Yes, a real life LOL!

As a longtime fan of Chappelle’s Show, I just had to tip my hat to Prince on the cover art for his new single, “Breakfast Can Wait.” Instead of some artsy fartsy photoshoot, The Purple One used a picture of Dave Chappelle, wearing the costume he often used when spoofing Prince on Chappelle’s Show, and holding a plate of pancakes. I don’t care who you are, that is hilarious!

I always applaud when celebrities show that they don’t take themselves too seriously, something Prince has been accused of throughout his career. I love that he’s getting in on the joke; that’s how you win people over. But he already had me in his corner. My iPod can vouch for that.

And the fact that Prince shared the artwork on his newly created Twitter account (Yes, Prince has joined the Twittersphere), just scores him even more points. That is how you win the Internet, and/or life, in general.

Bravo, and keep ’em coming, my good sir!
