Apropos of absolutely nothing (except my love for you all and a desire to bring joy to your lives), here are some pictures of Prince when he was 17.

Prince (then Prince Rogers Nelson) is notorious for having a no-camera rule when he’s around. These pictures were taken as part of a press kit to send to recording companies. Only 15 copies of the kit were made and distributed.

The photographer, Robert Whitman, later said of the photos “I had no idea what I was doing—I had Prince kneeling by this awful furniture and blowing bubbles. I was trying everything I could think of.” Prince? Blowing bubbles? There is nothing about this that would make me NOT sign him to a record deal.

The photographs will be on display at a gallery in Los Angeles starting next week, so if you need me you know where you can find me (drooling, happy-crying, in a corner).

Vivian Kane thinks that heaven is a place where Prince is sitting around, blowing bubbles all the time. Jake Johnson is there too.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
