Prince was a master at many things like accessorizing his luscious chest fur with just the right amount of gold, making the floor boards jizz with his strut, easily snatching away the spotlight from absolutely anyone (including that other royal THE QUEEN on her born day) and giving the Internet GIFs we’ll always remember. Prince was one of the King of GIFs and many of his animated portraits of fierceness will make you want to reach for the smelling salts. But you won’t know whether to inhale the smelling salts through your nose, because your head is feeling light-headed or inhale the smelling salts through your genitals, because your fuck parts are feeling light-headed. I’ve put a few of Prince’s best GIF moments after the cut, and they’re really just the tip of the sexy iceberg:
This one has to be the Mona Lisa of Prince GIFs. It’s a roller coaster of emotions that takes you on a journey from intrigue to coquettish sexiness. Prince really should’ve played Blanche DuBois at least once, because he perfected the “come hither” side-eye and smolder.
At last year’s Grammys, Prince presented Album of the Year and delivered a level 10 “Why aren’t these bitches standing for moi?” side-eye while looking like a sassy orange Fruit Roll-Up.
In this GIF, you’d think that Prince was walking toward a store called Blouses ‘R Us that had a 50% off banner hanging over its door.
And this is him throwing a side-eye of pure fire after finding out that Blouses ‘R Us had just closed for the day.
And again, proving that he’s got an associates, bachelors, masters and doctorate degree in side-eye throwing:
You know, I actually think Prince invented the side-eye:
This isn’t a GIF, but it’s a priceless and beautiful moment. If you never had it for Prince before, this classic moment may turn you into a believer who wishes you could’ve worshiped at his rhinestone-encrusted size 3 (in women’s) feets.
