Prince Shares Epic Passport Photo
It’s a rare occasion that any of us take an id photo that we’re actually proud of. But not Prince. In fact, the R&B legend’s ID photo game is so flawless — in all it’s perfectly eye-lined and lip-glossed glory — that he decided to flaunt his flyness to his millions of Twitter followers late last week. It follows all the same guidelines that passport photos outline…but simultaneously tells the agent checking it to bow down. Via Time:
While most people have to learn to live with passport photos that make them look like deer caught in the headlights, Prince is not most people. The Purple One recently posted a picture on Twitter that he claimed is the current snapshot for his international travel permit, and it’s pretty flawless to say the least.
While Prince presumably had to get his passport updated in order to travel for his upcoming “Piano & A Microphone” tour in Australia and New Zealand, there’s no reason he had to make the rest of us look so bad. In fact, the 57-year-old singer isn’t even adhering to the State Department’s criteria for a neutral facial expression, as he is clearly giving his best Blue Steel.
Now that we know that’s allowed, our next passport pics are sure to come out exactly like this.
Maybe we’ll go get professional headshots for our next passport pics as well…and serve a face.
