With Prince fan ?uestlove -- who will perform at the Bobby Z's second Benefit 2 Celebrate Life on March 9 -- leading the Roots, Fallon's house band, perhaps this bit of technical wizardry got to jump through the usual copyright hoops a bit faster than you'd expect for the Purple One.

"It's just like Instagram, except it changes your photo to look like a Prince album cover," Fallon explains amidst a segment introducing several iPhone apps. He demonstrates, and the resulting photo puts him on the cover of 1981's Controversy.
As for Fallon's announcer, Steve Higgins, things took a much more revealing turn for this obviously not-fake app.
