We have no idea how long this will last, but Prince is on Instagram.

And he kind of jumped into the deep end.

Five days ago, at 12:20 p.m. CST, he posted the first photo – and by 9:45 p.m. he'd uploaded a whopping 88 images to the verified account. That's about one every 7 minutes. (Check out this trick to see the exact time a photo was published.)

He hasn't posted anything since.

And who knows how long this will last? Last year, he abruptly deleted all his social media accounts without telling anyone why (though some, such as his Twitter, have since been restarted.)

Most of the Instagram uploads are concert and press photos, so you've seen a lot them before. But there are a few non-commercial gems in there. Here are some highlights.
