52 Stars Who Are Mourning the Death of One of Music’s Biggest Legends, Prince
Today, the music industry lost one of its greats. Just over three months after legend David Bowie passed away, singer Prince was found dead in his Minnesota home. The superstar was just 57 years old. Last week, the “Purple Rain” crooner’s plane had to make an emergency landing when he had a medical emergency on board, but he was discharged from the hospital shortly after the incident and his reps said he was simply dealing with a case of the flu. The cause of his death is not yet known.
We always knew that 57 year old had a HUGE impact on most of our favorite entertainers, but nothing could prepare us for the incredibly emotional tributes people like Michael Clifford, Zendaya, Ally Brooke Hernandez and more posted today to honor the icon.
Prince….there's no way

You will be terribly missed. We love you.

Once, Prince yelled from the stage that I could dance. He was likely yelling to the girl behind me, but it's still my happiest moment. RIP.
