The late Prince, who was such a fan of New Girl he guest-starred on the Fox comedy, “wanted to live in the reality of the show, and he wanted Nick and Jess to be together. So, he said he’ll do the show if he could help them get together, and he got to live the whole fantasy," Johnson said on The Kelly Clarkson Show. “He changed the whole narrative?” Kelly Clarkson replied in shock, to which Johnson replied, “He wanted them together and we wanted Prince! Prince is the best.”

The music legend Prince was a huge fan of FOX’s New Girl, which ran from 2011-2018 and starred Zooey Deschanel as Jess Day and Jake Johnson as Nick Miller. Prince appeared as himself in a season three episode aptly titled “Prince” that aired in 2014. On The Kelly Clarkson Show on Wednesday, Minx star Jake Johnson told host Kelly Clarkson that Jess and Nick got together because it’s what Prince, inarguably the most important fan of the series, wanted.
