Prince Dead - Legendary Singer Dies at 57

Prince, the legendary entertainer, reportedly passed away at the age of 57.

A body was reported to be found at the singer’s Paisley Park compound in Minnesota on Thursday (April 21), and TMZ has confirmed the entertainer has died.

Prince had a medical emergency last week where he had to make an emergency landing on his airplane.

Nothing is known right now about the cause of death or what happened.

Over the course of his multi-decade career, Prince released 39 studio albums. He also starred in the 1984 hit Purple Rain, and won the Best Original Score Oscar for his work on the movie. He also had recently announced he was working on a memoir.

Our thoughts are with Prince‘s loved ones during this time. We will update the public with more information as it is released.

    Sounds like him. He died of pneumonia, like Rock Hudson and Liberace. Nonetheless, he was a great musical artist.

    The blind item I read about the singer with Aids had Prince as the sufferer. That was from 3 days ago and they said he might die as early as the summer. If it’s true it’s sad that he listened to the religious folk and stopped taking his medicine.

  • toastie postie

    Another musical legend has left us. R.I.P. Sweet Prince.

  • Sweet Cheeks

    I’m in complete shock. Always loved seeing him perform……another talented musician gone but never forgotten :(

  • silb

    If it is true, I hope they feel okay with sharing, because AIDS seems to has lost its scare and people probably need to be remembered that you can still die from it although there is now great medication against it

  • Ash

    Beyond sadness, RIP :(
