I was shocked about that too, I was really sad when John candy and Chris Farley and James Gandolfini all passed away 😔11
Yes especially if they made a positive impact on people. The death of Kobe daughter hit me really hard. Him also but she was 13. Seeing people that love them hurt it hurts me. I can't imagine how it must feel to lose a husband and child at the same time.10
Only people who I’ve felt sad for when they died was Heath Ledger, Michael Jackson, Paul Walker & Pavarotti10

It's really really awful. Hard to believe.22

a really close guy friend of mine called me at 5:30 in the morning when he found out kurt cobain had committed suicide. i cried and cried that whole day. and i was into dance and pop and early techno at the time but from the moment i first heard nirvana i knew there was something special and it was kurt. and i saw him in so many interviews look like he was just being eaten by demons or something 24hrs a day? it used to break my heart watching that guy. so i didn't idolize him by any means and i would have thought that learning about the deaths of other celebrities might have affected me or something but no - no it was just with him. it was like instant bawling. i still can't hear nirvana to this day without getting instant tears.30
Michael Jackson - I grew up obsessed with him and had many good childhood memories involving his music. When he died I almost felt like I was having a panic attack and felt pretty numb for a while.
Aaliyah - I was young when she passed but I was old enough to listen to her music and remember it. When she passed, my sisters and I were just all hugging each other crying.
Nipsey - First song I heard by him was “Late nights and Early Mornings” when it first came out and been listening to his music ever since. I am disgusted with what has come of hip hop/rap and he kept it original. I loved his authenticity and energy he portrayed in music and in life.. when he died, my heart sank and I smoked so much weed back to back while just listening to his music and crying by myself... Just knowing I will never vibe to another new song of his again. The shit hurt.30
I think I reacted to the fact of how they had to die. The fear they felt in passing and my daughter showed me a video of him talking about his daughter. That really got to me. Children passing affects me deeply especially passing knowing the end is coming and there is no way to stop it. My friend's 15 year old daughter passed away in 2018 and the sadness still comes to me sometimes.
I felt deeply sad about the Kpop singer Jonghyun who took his life because he could no longer live with his depression. I felt that he should have been in the hospital. Since then 2 other singers have passed away from depression. Proper treatment isn't always available and people fall through the cracks.20
Yes, Mac Miller the Kpop idols. Even if I didn't follow them closely Kpop feels like a huge community especially in times like that and it's just very sad.https://www.youtube.com/embed/J41qe-TM1DY
With Jonghyun it also made me think a lot because of how he planned his death so carefully waiting fo his fellow members to complete their projects making sure everyone else was happy and even making this song for his fans. I just couldn't understand it at the time and it really weighed on my mind what his mindset must have been and how he must have felt.11
I was a downer when i heard john candy had died at 40. But it wasn't till uncle buck was on 2-3 year ago that it hit me. and i mean hit me. all the years and films he was in i was captivated by but had no idea how much the big dude must have influenced me. not just by the characters he played. was like i could see the man behind them all the time... And none, not a smidge or slight anything, up until it all found me in that one instant and freaked me out to be honest.. and i dont even know how to freak out..0
nope no celebrity ever made me cry but i did love one growing up30
A few I did grieve sort of but two I can say I Truly Grieved over Justin Strzelczyk of the Pittsburgh Steelers whom I grew up with and dated. Also, Erin Moran, Actress from Happy Days whom I met as a child and confided in a bit also met her while vacationing and she recognized me and we sat down had dinner drinks and talked and hung kept in touch until the day she died. So I only truly grieve over people I have a Personal connection with.20
Depends I mean a loss of life is a loss of life no one should have to go and I feel sorry for family and friends that have to go through this period of grief.
And yes there have been people that where it has hit me that they died because they where brilliant in there field and there death has been a loss to humanity.
But no matter what me thoughts are usually with the surving because they need all the strength and love they can get to get through these dark times.10
Carl "The Cuban" Ruiz. Great chef, amazingly funny, and a great guy!! Seen him all over, and with Guy Fieri and on Food Channel.
Robin Williams, most of all, and George Carlin too! Greats, that are missed, and the world is a sadder place without them telling us to laugh at stupid sht!10
Some stories connect with you more than others. Maybe it echoes some experience from your life, or maybe that person has links important memories in your life. Also, sometimes it makes you all the more aware of your own mortality. The sad part of getting older is that you will see more and more death.10
No. I wasn't overly upset about Denis Ten's death and his death wasn't as big as Kobe's. Literally played the news live while the top 2 American figure skaters were going to do their free skate program, and i realized i really didn't care. Im sorry he and his daughter died as human beings, but the world goes on.10
Isabel, I know it must be especially hard for those in SoCal who loved Kobe. He only ever played for the Lakers after all. But part of him -- the public part that amazed us with his tremendous gifts, hard work and high intelligence -- belong to all of us. It was always amazing to watch him play and will himself and his team to success. It truly hurts to lose someone like him. It's okay to feel the way you feel.10
Suicides of celebrities that I respect and admire tend to get me down. The names that immediately come to mind are Robin Williams and Anthony Bourdain. To a lesser extent I would say Kurt Cobain. I've struggled with depression for most of my life. It breaks my heart to think of good people loosing their own personal struggle with depression.20
Yeah, I've worked in a celeb based industry (corporate hospitality... so I've seen a lot of sports stars at events), so I've never necessarily put anyone on a pedestal, but how can it not be heartbreaking and natural to mourn a 41 year old and his daughter losing there life in tragic accident.10
Yes, when I found out that Adam West died it hit me, sure I didn't find out until over a year later, but damn.20
Nope. I’ve never idolized any celebrity. About the closest I could come to that would be when a friend died when I was 14 I was bummed out and felt sad at her funeral… Then her twin sister got into politics 20 years later. :)0
I briefly felt sad soon after I learned of the deaths of Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson & Princess Diana.50
If I knew him. So really only Nelly. He actually liked me when we met. Probably because I didn't ask him for an autograph. I didn't thi k it was appropriate since he ccx was watching his daughter's basketball game.
FYI, his daughter went to highschool with me and I watched one of her games (not because she was in it, but I was bored and it was happening) sitting next to him. I didn't actually know it was him until he said who his daughter was.10

----------------I would listen to Joe Nuxall, MLB hall of famer for the Cincinnati Reds on radio for over 20 years.
Driving past the stadium during home games listening to Marty and Joe on the radio was part of life in Cincinnati.
When Joe Nuxall passed away.. I couldn't help but break down... I wasn't even sure why I was crying hysterically. I can't really explain it other than Joe gave me comfort in his words.. . the way he called the game... and was a calming voice after a hard days work when all I wanted to do was crack open a beer and listen to a ball game.
So hell yeah I have. And not ashamed to admit it.
