In the weeks since Prince‘s tragic death April 21, artists of every variety have delivered touching tributes to the inimitable Purple One. For comedian Tracy Morgan, the best way to honor the late legend is to keep emulating him in the bathroom mirror while shredding a well-tuned air guitar.
The clip, featuring the 30 Rock star absolutely losing it to the Prince classic “Sign o’ the Times,” follows his emotional take on Prince’s passing for the Hollywood Reporter. “Was he an influence? Absolutely!” Morgan said. “He was free. He came from the heart. He was talking about making love, he was a sexy man!” Morgan added that Prince’s music taught him “how to be gentle,” in addition to gifting him with some bedroom tips. “Because of [Prince], I once sucked a titty for an hour,” Morgan revealed. “At the end, it looked like a tater tot.”
Morgan, currently on the road for his Picking Up the Pieces stand-up tour, also gave a quick shout to the late Michael Jackson. “I love you Mike!” Morgan captioned a video of himself shredding with glee to the impossibly perfect Eddie Van Halen solo on “Beat It.”
