It looks like Prince is finally embracing social media! The 56-year-old, who started conservatively by opening a Twitter account, seems to have found his groove — posting a selfie (where you can actually see his face) on Facebook this morning (November 11). What’s next? Uploading his iconic music videos to YouTube? That’s unlikely but stranger things have happened.

2014 has heralded something of a Prince revival. The pop legend dropped two albums — Plectrumelectrum and Art Official Age — collaborated with artists as diverse as Kendrick Lamar and Rita Ora. He also put on an eight-minute master class in performance art on a recent episode of Saturday Night Live. See the “Purple Rain” hitmaker’s pics after the jump.

Are you happy that Prince is finally embracing social media? Let us know in the comments below.
