Prince appears to have settled on a formula for social media: join a service, post a few times, then delete everything and sit back to enjoy people calling you enigmatic all over again.
So enjoy Prince’s Instagram account while you can: having fired it up again this week under the “Princestagram” moniker, Prince has already posted 88 images and video clips at the time of writing.
Most of them are shots of himself throughout his career, although there are also some jokey memes (“How light skinned dudes wipe their nose / roll dice” for example). One video clip even appears to show Prince’s laptop homescreen with a snatch of new music.
But as we say, if the account isn’t wiped by the end of the year, we’ll be surprised. We suspect Prince is having quite a lot of fun at the internet’s expense with all this, so more power to him.
