"@prince, the singularly flamboyant and prolific songwriter and performer whose decades of music transcended and remade genres like funk, rock and R&B, died today at his Paisley Park studio and estate in Minnesota. He was 57. Across a career of more than 35 years, @prince released 39 albums and won 7 #Grammys. He was a provocative performer who often played with androgyny and overt sexuality, posing suggestively on album covers and shocking audiences at the Super Bowl halftime show in 2007 with a massive phallic guitar silhouette. @nytmills photographed that show, pictured here. "His performance last night at Super Bowl XLI will surely go down as one of the most thrilling halftime shows ever," @nytimes wrote the following day, "certainly the most unpredictable, and perhaps the best." #Prince" By nytimes on Instagram.
