Brace yourselves, world, Instagram just got it’s best possible-named superstar account but from Prince himself: Say hi there to Princetagram.
The Fifty Seven-year-previous pop sensation eventually joined the online picture sharing app over the weekend, picking the name as the subtitle for his account, which uses the straightforward @prince apply tag. Then he (or his workforce) started posting photographs. The account has brought almost 100 of them in three days.

Most of his material used to be clipped from already-shot press and file images, but the musician did have a couple quirky posts that make a scroll through the account worth it. Among them is this picture from Dave Chappelle’s infamous sketch in response to a supposedly real encounter at Prince’s home by means of Charlie Murphy, with the added caption “This bores me.”
Different Princetagram highlights include a vertical video of his computer wallpaper — for which he, in fact, uses A Photo of himself — and plenty of, many, blue-steel-esq head pictures.
As of this morning, the Crimson one had added 88 images and racked up almost 60 thousand followers on the provider. That’s an attractive quick uptick for a person who has a well-documented love/hate relationship with the Internet and the people who use it.
In 2010 the singer/songwriter famously declared that the Internet was “totally over,” and has made a addiction of suing any individual who puts his song up on-line in any type. Final year Prince also deleted both his Twitter and Facebook debts — but no longer earlier than internet hosting a Fb Q&A through which he handiest answered a single query in over three hours.
Alternatively, even pop superstars are allowed to change their thoughts about the Internet, and Princetagram could also be just the newest proof of that; Prince recently released his newest album HITNRUN Section One solely on Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal, and he has just about 100 thousand followers on a now-reestablished Twitter account (@Prince3EG).
We’re nonetheless ready on some Red Rain-themed cat memes, but this is a lovely good start.
