Zooey Deschanel Reveals Just How Much Prince Hated The Kardashians

The Purple One really, really couldn’t stand them.


By now we’ve all seen the footage of Prince triumphantly kicking Kim Kardashian offstage at a 2011 concert (when he invited her to come dance with him and she just stood there, so yeah, it was justified) and now we have more evidence that Prince had no love for the talent-deprived Kardashian Klan.

In an appearance on Conan Monday, Zooey Deschanel talked about the time a Kardashian Kameo threatened to derail a guest appearance by Prince on her show New Girl. 

According to Deschanel, Prince‘s camp demanded that no Kardashians appear in the episode that was to include a number of celebrities in a Los Angeles party scene. But some Kardashians had already filmed the episode. So, as not to offend Prince, the crew burned all the evidence that any Kardashian had been present.

“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 said. “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.” 

“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,” Deschanel said. 

Like he always did.
