"Dearly beloved We are gathered here today To get through this thing called life Electric word life It means forever and that's a mighty long time But I'm here to tell you, there's something else..."
The artist formerly and then again known as Prince has passed away at age 57.
Is anyone else as shocked and as saddened as me? So much talent dying this year. ☂☔️☂☔️☂☔️☂☔️💜💜💜💜💜💜💜🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊😢😢😢😢
As shocked as I am at his passing, I'm even more shocked at the people on here who say they've never heard of him. I guess I was very fortunate to have been brought up in a house where music of all genres was so important. our parents played it all and I came to love and appreciate it all.
Over 100 million records sold worldwide 45 award nominations, winning 7 Grammy's 4 VMA's and an Oscar.
Reportedly he had no will and a judge to split the assets equally among all living relatives. 1 sister and five half siblings. Between his properties, other assets and his music library, it could be up to a BILLION dollars. If a proven "love" child steps forward, they get 100% of the estate. Anyone related?
OMG!!! I have JUST YESTERDAY started listening to Purple Rain and then went on a total Prince-spree of songs! Honestly, it may sound creepy, but whenever I do this with somebody (listen to songs/watch movies) that person dies. Like Michael Jackson, Robin Williams , David Bowie... It's creepy.
He is a legend. Legends NEVER die! Death only makes them IMMORTAL! I know it sounds weird, but that is the truth.
No. I'm more saddened that people seem to care more about when a celebrity dies than a soldier who died overseas. Don't get me wrong - I don't like it when ANYONE dies. But to give priority to a celebrity over an armed-service person is just completely wrong.
This is my first time finding out about this and yes this saddens me. Prince's childhood and success story was always inspirational to me. Also, his songs were always risque, pushed the limits and went outside the norm.
Never heard of him, ever. why do u put so much importance on this? in the world there are so many more talented and other people who contribute so much to society. so many needy kids, yet u mention so guy i never ever heard of. hahaha
Yes, I am Very sad, @SarahsSummer, for Like Michael Jackson, who was also a Great and Talented Pop star, I watched the news tonite and there is More than Meets the eye in his Untimely Death that is going to be Investigated. Good luck and Great question. xx
Not sad enough to go on GAG and round up attention from a bunch of strangers. It's not like he was part of your family. Sad? Sure, it's sad we lost an artist, but I'll still listen to his music and life goes on.
Yes, very sad. My mom was a big fan and I remember as a little girl, before I even knew what the lyrics meant dancing around and singing to his music with my mom. The first song I ever heard of his was "Little Red Corvette" and had no idea what it meant, but loved it. Definitely lost a musical legend. RIP, Prince.
No. It's sad because dying is sad, but I'm not sad. I don't even know him. He Reminds me of Michael. They both had that weird feminine look, and music that I was never a fan of... But some had catchy tunes..
It's interesting to me though that he no longer exists.. And one day we won't either.. 😳
It is shocking. He wasn't my favorite artist, but I did like his songs "little red corvette" and "let's pretend we're married". In fact the second one was the first song I heard by him. And it is shocking that people wouldn't know who he was. I do. I've also grown up in a house full of music. I guess I'm extremely lucky
