Prince Makes Wacky Twitter Debut

Stop The Presses!

Prince has always known how to make a dramatic entrance, so it seems a bit out of character that he would make his Twitter debut in such a goofy, casual manner.

The Purple One, who famously declared the Internet "completely over," sent out several tweets on Tuesday via the account of his current band, 3rd Eye Girl.

After testing things out with "PRINCE'S 1ST TWEET... TESTING 1, 2..." he tweeted, "Did eye add 2 much pepper?" alongside a picture of a healthy-looking, peppery meal. He even poked fun at himself, tweeting "CATCH THIS NOW B4 MY LAWYERS DEW," which is likely a reference to his famously litigious attorneys who crack down on video copyright violations.

According to Billboard, Twitter's Tatiana Simonian confirmed that these tweets were in fact sent out by the Purple One himself.

Prince also posted a link to a 3rd Eye Girl video, and while it looked like it may be a harbinger of more Prince online video content to come, the videos have already been made private.

That said, he did reveal a snippet of a mellow, horn-laden 3rd Eye Girl tune called "Groovy Potential," and you just never know what else Prince may have up his purple sleeve.
