R.I.P. Prince

2836

At first, like many people I thought this was just another internet rumor that would be disproven eventually. But it turns out that it’s true. We lost another talented human being.

From the Huffington Post:

Prince, the legendary musician who brought us countless hits, such as “Purple Rain” and “When Doves Cry,” has died. He was 57.

The singer’s publicist confirmed the tragic news to The Huffington Post on Thursday.

“It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57,” the rep said in a statement. “There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time.”

TMZ was the first to report the news.

Earlier this week, the performer was treated for the flu after his plane made an emergency landing.

A representative for Prince told TMZ that the singer was feeling under the weather during his shows last week and began to feel worse on the plane. After the emergency landing, he was treated at a hospital and released three hours later.

  1. I just saw this on the news. Purple Rain is a classic! Michael Jackson,Whitney…now Prince??? All the people I grew up on are passing away. He will be missed. A true musical genius. 🙂

  2. I was SHOCKED when I heard the news very sad to hear that especially so close to the death of his girl Vanity. 😦

  3. OMFG!!! I just got home..tuned on the news..my 18 year old nephew running to me in a semi panic ..I thought that something happened in my family but he was reacting about Prince’s death. I almost fainted when he said that he was dead.I’m like ” Are yoiu serious ?!” .I’m in a little bit of denial.

    I just loved that man and his music..an icon for sure. I wished that I could have went to his concert but I couldn’t because of time .Hated that but I envied those people that did.

    My condolences.. for sure.

  4. This sucks, man. Prince was an icon and a musical genius. Every time I hear Purple Rain, 1999, Controversy, or those other masterworks from his rise to super-stardom, it takes me right back to my high-school days, driving around after school and talking for hours with my friends about life, love, and the universe.

    Farewell, Prince Rogers Nelson.

  5. On him androgyny was cool and he was secure in his masculinity and even while he looked soft and pretty could pull the most hyper masculine dude’s woman wearing high heels and mascara. And make women swoon.

  6. I was shocked when I heard the news. I grew up listening to his music, and I have “Purple Rain” on DVD. Yes, he was a musical genius, and he was socially conscious and generous, too. R.I.P. 😦
