Ah, Prince. Nothing compares 2 U.

Five years after declaring that the internet was "completely over," the 57-year-old musical chameleon appears to have given in and joined Instagram. Not that anyone can blame him.

Prince's verified Instagram account, @prince (also known as "Princestagram"), is a treasure trove of Internet gold. Although he has yet to follow anybody, the Grammy winner appears to be determined to make up for lost time. In the span of three days, he shared 88 photos—from vintage concert footage and album covers to memes—along with witty captions. The singer's account is also packed with outlandish fashion statements, sultry pouts, and crazy custom guitars. And purple, lots of purple.
