The artist formerly and currently known as PRINCE has passed away at 57. According to TMZ, Prince’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning, and multiple sources connected to the singer confirmed he had passed.
The singer — full name Prince Rogers Nelson — had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.
Bowie AND Prince AND Chyna in one year! What hope is there left for glamour in this world!?
Aside from the joy his music brought us, I will remember Prince for his optimistic and wishful-thinking outlook when he once said “The internet’s completely over”. Sometimes when I’m glued to my iPhone, I wish he’d been right, and that I was instead busying laying on a velvet recliner with my friends listening to his songs again. RIP Prince!
