Prince's Passport Photo Is One Helluva Way To Remember This Flawless Legend — PHOTO
If there is one way to remember the artist who brought to life "Purple Rain" in both song and on the big screen, this is it. Prince's passport photo is circulating around the Internet and it's one helluva way to honor the music legend. In February 2016, Prince tweeted the photo and wrote alongside it, "PRINCE ROGERS NELSON::PASSPORT PICTURE 2/11/16." I don't know about you, but this is the best passport photo I've ever seen.
On Thursday, April 21, Prince died at the age of 57 after being found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota. At the time of his death, the singer's reps released the following statement to Bustle: "It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57."
The Carver County Sheriff's Office also released a statement to Bustle about his death explaining that his cause of death is continuing to be investigated.
Prince will truly be missed, but thankfully there are many moments to remember him by, including the above photo. The "Raspberry Beret" singer was never not a star. When didn't he take to the stage and shine? When didn't he inspire through his meaningful words? He was beyond influential.
I mean, the fact that he's impacting others' lives through a passport photo, well, that speaks volumes. Here are just a few of the many reactions on Twitter:
You know Prince was an amazing person all-around, especially when he could turn a passport photo into a masterpiece.
