The No. 1 Source For Breaking Music and Film Headlines

Prince’s Facebook page was hacked

on April 18, 2015, 10:40am

As someone who’s notoriously shunned technology, it was rather shocking when Prince decided to join Facebook and host a fan Q&A last October. His interest waned relatively quickly however, as he deleted the page after answering just one question. This morning, Prince’s Facebook page was re-activated with a pair of messages promising new music.

Sadly, it appears the real Prince was not the one behind these postings, but rather a hacker who managed to guess his password (‘Purple’, ‘Pancakes’, ‘New Girl’?). Either that, or Prince was feeling particularly self-depreciating — and hungry.
