prince sheila e

The world is grieving the loss of music icon Prince Rogers Nelson, whose lifeless body was found inside an elevator at his Minneapolis home. He was 57.

The singer's longtime publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, confirmed his death in a press release on Thursday.

The Associated Press reports Sheriff's officials found Prince unresponsive in the elevator inside the singer's sprawling Paisley Park Compound. CPR was performed but he was pronounced dead at the home at 10:07 a.m. Thursday.

A group of about 50 to 60 fans gathered outside Prince's estate, crying hysterically after news broke of his death.

There are unconfirmed rumors that the bisexual singer was infected with the virus that causes AIDS. He declined treatment, allegedly, on the advice of leaders at the Jehovah's Witness church where he was a member.

The pilot of Prince's private jet was force to make an emergency landing in Illinois when Prince's "flu symptoms" took a turn for the worse early Friday morning. He was briefly hospitalized and released the same day.

"The meaning of the word loss has taken on a new meaning this day," Prince protege and close friend Sheila E. told People.com in a statement. "Thank God love lives forever."

President Obama also paid tribute to Prince in a prepared statement.

obama remembers prince

The gifted singer and songwriter who played 27 instruments is best known for his hit songs "Little Red Corvette," "I Wanna Be Your Lover," and "When Doves Cry."

At age 20, Prince burst onto the music scene with his hit mid tempo ballad "Soft and Wet" off his album For You.

His movie Purple Rain became a cult classic and inspired a new generation of musicians and songwriters.

Prince performed for the final time in concert in Atlanta last week.

    I'm shocked too it's usually after the black community comes after him to make a statement maybe 6-8 weeks later

    What religion makes someone decline treatment for such serious illness tho?

    From downstairs since we moved up. Im like the oldest daughter that rolled up to the house on "Poltergeist" as the house was folding in on itself.

    The dad: Dana. Dana get in the car. Get in the car NOW Dana.

    Dana/ME: Whats happppppppppppppppppppppening?

    Prince decided to damn die. Out of nowhere. Chyna the wrassler croaked. White Chyna and Blac Chyna...aka Kylie and Angela...done punked the entire FUKK outta everyone who invested in their damn beef.

    Im unable to can right now.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I love him. I love him.

  • smartchickfl

    Still shocked.....no matter what caused him to leave this earth, none of us are going to live forever anyway. The focus should be on his gifts.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    awww man, I can't imagine how hard this must be folks like Sheila who actually knew and loved him, smh. (the rest is a bit TMI and snarky, for me, right now, but I guess it feeds the masses)

  • It’s Taurus Season

    “Soft and Wet”
    ^^^^^^
    A fave.

  • Vonn

    Kylie Jennifer's old face I see. Good choice.

  • Metoo2

    Interesting but they just posted pics of him at Walgrees getting meds, they supposedly talked to employees at the location. I think this is an attempt to further make JW look bad because you can get medical treatment. A bunch of lies. I don't see how people hate JW so much but love the people associated with the organization. Many celebs are or were raised as JW and y'all love them....and sent them get well wishes when they required medical treatment. So please use your intelligence when reading these articles and before judging people for their religious beliefs.

  • iWasteTime

    The Radio played Adore and I had to pull over.
    Picked up Jr and we jammed to Kiss and Purple Rain !! Prince has another fan in my 6 yr old.

    RIP.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Prince and Sheila. I am actually a HUGE fan of hers too. The album version of "A Love Bizarre" is damn 13 minutes long. Fell in love with her too way back when.

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    Damn...the dun went and gave Prince AIDS..."they" sho throw that shyt on a nicca,quick...His ass till warm...aint been 24hrs... Geez

  • iWasteTime

    I just told bestie Phuck them all for Life!!!!!

  • LuLu

    Thank you! Well said! We do NOT turn down medical treatment. Don't even know where that rumor came from. If he declined medical treatment, it was of his own volition. Again, thank you!

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    did anybody...he was always private...I t h I nk that was added by ....Auntie.

  • LuLu

    You are correct. We do not accept blood transfusions - there are many other alternatives to whole blood. Besides that, we accept medical treatment.

  • Vonn

    I love her too.Glamorous Life & Touch Me are my favs. She is a funky funky musician. Hope when they honor Prince, Sheila her family The Revolution & Santana get to play.

  • stav

    Thank you very much for your loving kindness.

  • MissHarlem

    Wait what happened?

  • That’s Interesting

    You should be ashamed of yourself, as a reputable news outlet, as you claim yourself to be, to even post this slander/lies/innuendo. Prince is a legend and an icon and should be remembered with the respect and dignity he deserves. If he were a white entertainer of this caliber, you wouldn't dare post this garbage. The first thing ignorant people think when they hear flu like symptoms is AIDS. Nobody ever said anything about him having AIDS. People are just concocting this cheap, trashy lie out the blue. Shame on you.

The list is getting longer and I hate it. RIP to all these beautiful legends.

    That guitar riff he does at 3:52 is just absolutely killer.

    That performance is right up there with any other performance I've seen... right there with the "Billie Jean" performance Michael Jackson did at the Motown 25th Anniversary show.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    I just hope that whatever he wanted done with his music, estate, etc, will be honored. if we never hear any of his unreleased 'new' music, he's already left us with plenty to marvel over and remember him by.
    (anyway, none of the 'newly discovered' post-life music from folks like MJ and Pac has overshadowed what they gave us while they lived. so maybe there's a reason they didn't want to release some of those works. maybe they considered them as yet 'unfinished' masterpieces in the making? (just my opinion))

    The generation of real, raw, true talent is dying off.. soon we will be left with just awful, untalented, boring, attention seeking hacks. I cant even listen to the radio anymore, its all so mundane and predictable. I feel like the last time we had any quality singers (R&B, Soul, Funk, Jazz, etc) was the 90s .. besides Amy Winehouse there isnt really any new good singers on the scene anymore and thats just heartbreaking. All the legends are leaving us slowly but surely.. these new artists arent even close to being legendary. Its so sad. I guess ill forever be stuck in the past musically. I know one thing for sure you wont catch me listening to Rihanna, Beyawnnce, Katy Perry, Miley Virus, or any of them 10 years from now. Ill still be bumping Luther, Anita, Whitney, Prince, MJ, Smokey, Temptations, Diana, Coltrane, EW&F, George Clinton/Pfunk, Gap Band, SWV, Aaliyah, etc.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Oh Lawd Sandra, did Prince ever admit he was bisexual? I don't recall it. And I think if he was, by now, there'd have been more than a few fellas who would have come forward and spilt the tea.

    Was he effeminate? As all damn outdoors he was.

    Now whether or not he ever got down with a male is anybody's guess but I betcha there's quite a few even straight mguys en who would have had sex with Prince LOL. The man was sexy, talented, mystifying, and just a gorgeous human being to look at.

    R.I.P. Prince. One of the best that EVER did it!

    YASSSS and was going INNNNNN

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I tell you what though, there's no way Jehovah's Witnesses would have told him not to take life-saving meds, so let's not spread misinformation. Jehovah's Witnesses long ago left it up to their members to determine if they will or will not seek certain medical treatments--including blood transfusions.

    And they actually don't call themselves a "church". We don't call Islam a church or Judaism a church either. Their worship facilities are called "kingdom halls", and they generally are considered a Christian sect but notably do not follow several major tenets of orthodox Christianity, including that of the Triune Nature of God (Holy Trinity) and the doctrine of hellfire.

    A 57 year old man whose health none of us knew anything about could certainly die from JUST the flu--it happens every day. Age, overall health, and whether or not you're a smoker are factors that in part determine if a severe flu can turn lethal. And if he did die from AIDS then he wasn't the first celeb to do so and won't be the last.

    What we do know is that he was a brilliant musician and an amazing trendsetter. Let's appreciate him for that.

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Michael Jackson , Prince , Whitney, .......Please think about this ......they did not die of old age in their sleep after a long happy life. Their passing was sudden, abrupt,
    unexspected, tragic, painful. The Common Denominator was , the Vices of Industry, the Life Style, the Symptoms of What they LOVED to do so much and why people adored them so much took them away. Painfully. ......................................

    They were people that made us so proud to be Black, They ruled, they dominated, there was no comparision. They lived a life of Fantasy and Horror at the same time and it appears the 'Horror' is why all three are not here right now. But......they should be, they should be............ it almost seems they went to the slaughter.

    Together all 3 , had they joined together while alive , pooled their resources and talent
    there was so much they could have done in Music, in the World ,and in our Community

    Why? All three within a few years of each other . So much talent, so much promise, so much more to do.

    Is this..................The Price of Fame.

    I'm so ashamed of myself. Prince is dead and I'm sitting here trying to make sense of why he so dramatically and strangely went from that post-Toni Braxton/Halle Berry mini-perm to a big ole full blowout Afro. Now that was odd.

    And ya'll have to check out the vid where Prince discusses why he didn't end up singing on that "Bad" song with Michael Jackson. He told Chris Rock that he wasn't about to sing "Your butt is mine" to MJ and that MJ certainly wasn't gonna sing that line to him. LOL! Prince was kinda hood to be from Minnesota. Who knew?

    This is about Prince not JW. Everyone has a right to their own beliefs but Witnesses and their feelings shouldn't always be showing up uninvited, like they do on my doorstep.

  • bigdede

    No Jehovah's Witness can do transplants. We just don't take whole blood but there are lots of JW who have gotten transplants. I know 2. And JW accept all kinds of treatment. Prince wouldn't say no to treatment even if he (ridiculous!) he had AIDS. I know some JW who have AIDS and they go to the doctor/hospital and get treatment.

  • bigdede

    Me too!

  • bigdede

    JW doesn't make anyone decline treatment for a serious illness. I know Jehovah's Witnesses who have gotten transplants. Those are just lies. There is another religion who believes in just praying and not seeking out medicines. That's not Jehovah's Witnesses.

  • bigdede

    Yes Jehovah's Witnesses can take medication, have surgeries, transplants, get chemo, dialysis, and based on their own conscience they can take some blood products just not whole blood.

    @sandra I'm glad you used the word "allegedly" JW do not believe in blood transfusions.. But do not decline medical treatments such as taking medicine.

He's said plenty of times in interviews, that he did some "pretty wild" things in his younger years.

    You know I thought he talked about it on The View before but I can't find the video so maybe he didn't have surgery. I'm just so sad that he's gone.

  • Fendi

    It was stated he had surgery. I was only aware of him needing the hip replacement, not him actually having it. He may have spoken about it publicly, IDK. I just read that he recently had back surgery. That all strikes me as being strange, because I wasn't sure if JWs could have surgery.

    It is truly an unfortunate series of events re: his passing. I'm not trying to place blame on anyone in particular, because when God calls us home, we're all going to have to transition. But I wonder if the people in his inner circle really did all they could and should have done for him, medical practitioners included. It's a tough loss.

    May your heart be healed. ?

If you have a husband, pull him a little closer to you tonight, in bed, if you have kids that get on your nerves, give them a kiss, "just because", it doesn't matter if they are adult children. If you have siblings and parents that get on your nerves, call them to tell them you love them, and most importantly when you look in that mirror, despite all you trials, and tribulations, tell YOURSELF that you love YOU. and that YOU are worthy of whatever you desire. You are a conquer!!!. You ARE beautiful!!!! That's all our dear friend Prince wanted people to know, is that WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL, AND WE ALL MATTER. Be blessed you guys and take care of one another. Goodnight. :-)

  • Jessy

    Thank you! I appreciate that! Yeah, I so remember hearing he had surgery before but now that I can't find any footage of him saying it you start questioning your me memory.

    Yeah, I was kind of surprised that TMZ had the pics of him going to Walgreens yesterday and I wondered why no one went for him. Then, I thought maybe his circle just didn't realize how bad he was feeling/he was hiding it a bit. I couldn't imagine that his bodyguard wouldn't have taken that elevator ride back up with him when dropping him off if he realized how serious it was. I really think it was the flu that went into pneumonia. I had a family member that had walking pneumonia and didn't know. They had to go to a treatment center daily until it was cleared up because they didn't want to stay in the hospital. I think it was that. He thought he could fight the flu with those mess not realizing it had gone beyond that. I'm not listening to this other ish being tossed around. With no real evidence either. It's just plain wrong.

  • Fendi

    Thank you re: pneumonia! That's exactly what I was thinking. Respiratory failure (since he reportedly stopped breathing) due to pneumonia. That isn't uncommon with a certain disease, but I'm not interested in further speculating. ?

  • leapyearpisces

    One more thing, yes, because of my job, I f eel pretty confident about the blind items about him having AIDS, were correct, but you know what? So freaking what, man, at this point in the game, who cares????? THIS IS THE PROBLEM!!! IN 2016 HIV / AIDS should NOT be sensationalism anymore!!!!!! We need to respect this condition, and be cautious, BUT BY NO MEANS, should it be a person's ESPECIALLY PRINCE'S legacy!!!! People were WILDING OUT in th 60's, 70's, and 80's before HIV / AIDS came to the forefront, THEY COULD NOT UNDO shit they did!!! But what about people still contracting it in this day and age with all the education available????? We must STOP putting this stigma on this condition. The bottom line is whether it was the flu, AIDS (which is a compound of other conditions), a heart attack, ran over by a bus, the world lost a VERY SPECIAL being today. It matter not, how he left us, we need to focus on what HE left us with. People and their memory are waaaay MORE than what they die from.

    And the rumors begin, they all speculate for a different story. I honestly feel that it's more to his death than what the media or who ever truly wants us to believe. Think about it this for a minute Prince was getting ready to sign a major deal before his untimely death, so was Michael Jackson and the list goes on. I understand we all have an expiration date but something in the water stinks. They love to scream overdose or suicide... just sad. Rest well Prince.

    I know she is hurting, I loved seeing them on stage Prince would play damn near every instrument and Sheila E was killing the percussions.

  • E;f

    You clearly don't know who the f you are talking about.

  • Miany

    I'm willing to give it a try. Did not know he was a writer.

    you may be one of the 144,000 but you just dont know it.

    Media outtake posted the AIDS rumor about a very famous black make on 4/14 or some such. I wonder if prince opted to OD on painkillers rather than face the pain (both mentally and physically) of dying to AIDS in hospice care in the summer. It would explain his nervous anxiety during his last night alive atleast.

    Who the F $#@! wrote this article?? I have been a fan since he started in the late 70's and have followed his career every since...Prince was NOT bisexual!!! Everyone know good and well that Prince loved the ladies and was NEVER linked to a man! Stop spreading lies...you're only perpetuating the ignorance out there from people who claim to be a "fan", yet can't name any of his master works outside Purple Rain and "Kiss". This site is pure garbage!

  • TexasMocha

    I'm with you on that. Those Hollywood movers & shakers are worst than the mob. RIP Prince

    You're really stupid. That gay rumor went away after Purple Rain. That was 1984 hon. It was more than clear to anyone with half a brain, that he was NOT a gay or bisexual male by that time...especially seeing all the beautifull women he was with, 2 of which he MARRIED. And you're extra stupid for citing his Controversy lyrics....LOL! He's talking about how "labeling" people can be cause undue harm and unecessary controversy..."I don't understand human curiosity...life is just a game, we are all just the same..." Instead of cherry-picking a single lyric to fit your ignorance and perpetuate LIES, go listen to the ENTIRE song. You clearly know NOTHING about Prince, so stfu!

    Bitch. If you dont go die someplace.

  • N?V DEC

    He was a downlow brother...stop being so naive

  • E;f

    He was a one hit wonder from the 80's. You can't diminish what he hasn't done, which is nothing.

  • ReadU

    Since when was Prince bisexual? Sandra Rose... you are doing some serious projecting...

  • NameCantBeBlank

    You don't accept blood based on bull**** in The Bible? LOL! How droll can some of you people be?

  • Me

    but but but...

    He wasn't bisexual....

  • liberalpeople

    It's a lie.

  • liberalpeople

    This article is garbage and packed with lies and speculations. Devoid of facts.

  • Antoinette Dickerson

    I'm not saying he did. That was a rumor. I was saying, if he did So what let him rest in peace.
