Prince has deleted his Facebook and Twitter accounts and removed a host of videos from Youtube.

The singer had previously joined Facebook earlier this year and also used the Twitter handle @3rdeyegirl – referencing the backing band he recently released new LP ‘Plectrumelectrum’ alongside. Both accounts, however, have now been deleted with no explanation as to why.

A host of videos from his YouTube channel Princevevo have also been deleted, with only three videos remaining – an interview and two clips of the track ‘Breakfast Can Wait’.


When asked to comment on the decision to remove his presence from social media, a spokesperson for Prince declined to comment.

Last month, meanwhile, Prince took to the now-deleted Facebook account to take part in a Q&A with fans, during which he only answered one question. The event was intended as an interactive sessions with fans, however Prince posted only one answer relating to sound frequencies.
