Prince was feeling friendly today when he decided to post his very first selfie on his Facebook page.
The 56-year-old music icon stood in front of a round mirror and used an old-school camera to take the photo and added a one-word caption that read “KNOWTHYSELF.” In the second photo, he simply added a yellow and blue filter for a dramatic effect.
Prince–who doesn’t own a cell phone–oftentimes jokes about their importance and says “We ban their usage anywhere around us because we’re allergic to lithium and ‘Everybodyelsies.
Both pictures have garnered close to 7,000 likes and have been shared 347 times. Comments such as “Too much beauty in one picture” or “Sexy mother f**ker” and everything else in between were expressed at the sight of The Purple One’s first selfie.
The news comes as a shock to fans who have accepted the musician’s reclusive ways. While on tour with his band 3RDEYEGIRL, Prince routinely asks the audience to put their phones away so to be present in the moment, fans have obliged and loved the show even more.
