There is very little that you and me and Prince have in common. For instance, neither of us is an other-worldly sex alien sent to Earth to make it a little more perfect. But now there is one thing that binds all three of us: the selfie.
Of course Prince's selfie isn't taken on some pathetic iPhone camera, it's done with a full lighting setup and taken with a professional camera. But it's a selfie all the same. Prince captioned the shot on Facebook "KNOWTHYSELFIE..." and added a link to "U Know," a single off his new album Art Official Age.
On a different song off Art Official Age, "Clouds," Prince ponders about our social media age, saying, "All of our life's a stage / Everybody stars, reality so blurry." Later, he sings, "But I wonder does it really even matter if it ain't on a stage." No, it doesn't. And thank you very much for sharing.
Prince also had a Warhol moment and posted another version of the same photo, this time in blue and yellow.
Perhaps he's declaring his support for the University of Michigan ahead of their rival game against Ohio State later this month? Who knows?
On thing is for certain: Your Snapchat story doesn't even compare.
