Prince Stars As Love Guru On Super Bowl Episode Of 'New Girl'
SPOILER ALERT: Prince was on hand to give Jess some crucial love advice after freaking out when Nick uttered the three magical words, "I love you."
In Sunday's episode of the comedy 'New Girl', post-Super Bowl, music legend Prince made a guest appearance and offered the troubled Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschane) some tips in love.
The 'Purple Rain' singer, who is an avid fan of the show, contacted the producers himself during last season to try and guest star in an episode.
"He contacted us last season because he's a huge fan," executive producer Brett Baer told E!News.
"He knows everything about the show. He contacted Zooey [Deschanel] and Hannah [Simone] directly and asked to do the show. We couldn't work it out last year. But when the Super Bowl thing was floated, it was perfect timing."
Dave Finkel, who is also an executive producer, added, "He said, I want to be involved in the show in a real way and I want to help Nick and Jess with their relationship."
And Prince got his wish, the 55 year-old dished out some much needed love advice To Jess, which may have saved hers and Nick's relationship.
So how did Jess Day end up meeting the singer/songwriter?
Ms Day, who is known for her awkward yet cute nature, was freaked out by Nick when he uttered the three make-or-break words in a relationship, "I love you." But instead of reciprocating the notion, Jess stayed perfectly silent.
Further into the episode, Jess was explaining her dilemma to Cece when the pair were nearly run over by a car, but this resulted in them being invited to Prince's own VIP-party.
However, Jess wasn't able to enjoy the night's entertainment as Nick was constantly on her mind, but not all was lost. Prince then appears and offers the love sick character some crucial tips for her to repeat the same three words back to Nick.
To cap the show off, Jess was able to shout the words 'I love you," back before embracing in a passionate kiss, and then she was invited by Prince to join her onstage for a duet. Prince's wonderful guest appearance secured the future of the show's most beloved relationship for at least the rest of the series.
