Watch Prince's New Video Directed By A Teenager

If any pop artist keeps us on our toes, it's Prince. With new jam, "Breakfast Can Wait," he's defying expectations yet again, this time playing with his own iconic visual legacy. Not only did he cast the ever-elusive Dave Chapelle as a Prince doppelgänger for the single's cover art, he also hired teenage genius, Danielle Curiel, as both the soulful video's director and primary actor. You guessed it: Miss Curiel appears in full-on Prince drag, pencil thin 'stache and all. She obviously did her homework, because she comes off as smoothly charismatic as Prince himself in any classic era clip. Perhaps more veteran pop stars should hire kids to embody them in future video endeavors (Cher, anyone?). Instant eternal youth.
After some Google-style detective work, we discovered Curiel's Twitter page, where we learned that she is both a "model/actress" and one half of pop duo Curly Fryz. We're not sure how Prince discovered Curiel (of course, the mystery just fuels the intrigue), but with her directorial vision and impersonation skills, we suspect she won't be under-the-radar for long. See for yourself.
