Sheila E. and Saints Win vs. Prince Vikings Fight Song

Yesterday, before the New Orleans Saints beat the Minnesota Vikings 31 to 28 in overtime, I posted on Superdome screaming as a weapon and included Prince's not-so-inspired Purple and Gold tribute song to his home team the Vikings.

Today via The Urban Daily, I learned of this video of Prince's former drummer, Sheila E., ribbing Prince about the Saints win with the video below. In it she imitates his Royal Purpleness while on the screem digs flash about the Saints's victory such as "Here comes the gumbo! Who Dat! Who Dat! New Orleans, New Orleans! Super Bowl! Super Bowl!"

I don't know what you may think, but she made me laugh and I'm a Prince fan as well as a Saints fan.

Now who will make a video imitating Lil Wayne who supported the Vikings instead of his hometown team?

Sheila E., born Sheila Escovedo, is not from New Orleans but from Oakland, Ca., and according to The Urban Daily, she posted this video on her Facebook page. I have not been able to confirm that this is how the video surfaced via any mainstream journalism source, but also reports that the drummer posted the video and says, "Sheila E., you are so wrong!" while laughing, of course.
