One of Prince’s most sexually laced music videos in years, “Breakfast Can Wait” hit the web today with some smoking-hot scenes to match the obviously heated lyrics (see below). The sultriness of the video, however, may or may not get cooled off when viewers discover that the star and director of the video, Danielle Curiel, is only 18 years old.

Per a press release from Prince Central, the singer granted the Los Angeles-based Curiel "complete artistic and directorial freedom after one reading of the treatments she submitted for the song." It's a sweet backstory, sure. Now let’s just hope Prince doesn't feel free to make Curiel his latest romantically linked protégé.

“Breakfast Can Wait” already drew an online buzz in August, when it was released as a single with cover art featuring comic Dave Chapelle dressed as a pancake-serving Prince in an unforgettable skit from his “Chapelle Show.” The video also harks back to the Chapelle bit in parts of the video that show Curiel dressed as the Purple Yoda handling flapjacks. Prince himself doesn’t show up in the video, which he screened for some fans last weekend after his concert at Paisley Park.
