prince dead

The artist known as Prince has reportedly died, according to credible music industry sources.

"Hearing terrible news from a very inside source that Prince has passed," Tweeted singer Zach Myers.

Authorities have not announced who passed away at Prince's Paisley Park estate in Minnesota today. But sources say the deceased is the 57-year-old singer, whose real name is Prince Rogers Nelson.

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

Prince is “fine,” a rep told Entertainment Weekly on Friday afternoon.

The singer suffered from flu-like symptoms that forced him to cancel 2 concerts in Atlanta last week.

Stay tuned for more on this breaking news story.

Celebrities on Twitter.com are reacting to the news of Prince's untimely death:

  • SpideySense

    Just got confirmation from the Huffington Post. There was a blind item earlier this week indicating that Prince had HIV and had joined some religious group that encouraged him to stop taking his meds. Was praying it wasn't true.

    RIP Prince! So sad . . .

    Uh oh he and Vanity were both 57.
    They were just starting their second Saturn Return.
    Damn that was quick.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Actually credit goes for once to MTO. They hinted that a huge HUGE black MUSICAL star had AIDS and that it wouldnt be long. As in a few days. And damn if Prince is not dead few days after they said it.

    I am sadly thinking Prince probably had a whole medical staff in that house and was on life support or something since the in air medical emerg. happened few days back.

    I gotta wait til 130 to leave.

    This is doubly sad, as one of my favorite Aunts was a HUGE, I mean HUGE.....every album, since the 70's, everything she could get her hands on fan and she introduced all of us, my generation and my kids generation to him. She passed away and now I am sure that she is knocking people over to meet him at the gates. This just makes me think of her and her singing and dancing with us to his songs.

    And I am in here with the paper folks, and can't talk about it!! UGH

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Im thinking a long, LONG time.

    Prince
    walks around with a cane, but he may end up in a wheelchair, if he
    doesn't undergo the surgical procedure to get both hips replaced.

    But
    that may not happen because Prince is a devout Jehovah’s Witness and
    followers of that faith don't believe in blood transfusions, which he
    may need during the surgery.

    “He’s in a lot of pain. He’s popping pain killers and hoping it will all go away," a source told The Hollywood Reporter.

    According
    to that report, Prince has been plagued with this pain since 2005 and
    was advised to get one hip replaced back then. But he declined the
    surgery. In 2007 and 2008, however, after the situation worsened, he
    agreed to a “secret surgery," but he never followed through.

    Now he's is walking with a diamond-studded cane to keep him upright.

    It's an astrological event,hun.
    It occurs every 27-29 years and since Saturn is the Lord of Karma it is a time of reaping what you've sown.

    The first Saturn return is when you grow up and become an adult, and the second is when you're entering old age and basically you reap whatever you have sown since the first Saturn Return whether it's physically, emotionally or spiritually.

  • Li

    IF he had the flu he wouldn't have been released from the hospital, the disease is contagious.
    I read a blind item two days ago - checkout mediatakedotcom and blind gossipdot com that it was a deadly disease and he was taking medication and stopped taking it.
    I don't want to say what it was you'll have to google it.
    He didn't have children, nor was he married....let the fight over the estate begin.

    Hmmm interesting. Jehovah Witnesses do have certain believes as it relates to medical treatment. Specifically, blood transfusions. People fail to realize that their is a difference between HIV and AIDS.

    the people who got to see him perform on 4/16 are very very lucky to see him perform for the last time..something about when these artists push themselves to still perform or tour at old age , they're passing away..its like its toooo strenuous for them or something

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Right! I do not fuggin care how he died!!!

    ROAR ?

  • LeBrick James

    True.

    Nothing reminds you of your own mortality more than to see a living legend pass away all of a sudden.

  • MissyJ

    I know you are fan of doing the education... JW's get surgery, doctors have been performing bloodless surgeries for decades, they also have procedures where they recycle your own blood so it can be used during surgery. The fear of needing a blood transfusion during a surgery would not be a problem that warranted complete refusal of surgery.

    Aaww...

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    When I was in nursing school in Miami, I worked at in an ICU when a young patient who had just delivered a baby girl was admitted. She was severely anemic after losing too much blood during childhood. Her husband, who was Jehovah's Witness, refused to allow doctors to transfuse her with 1 pint of blood. The hospital even went to court, but the judge said no, citing religious rights. The husband brought the couple's other daughter to visit her dying mom. He watched her die slowly over the course of 2 weeks. I studied his face and I saw no remorse. The ICU nurses pretty much snubbed him when he visited his wife.

    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 after world

    A world of never ending happiness
    You can always see the sun, day or night

    So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
    You know the one, Dr. Everything’ll Be Alright
    Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
    Ask him how much of your mind, baby

    ‘Cause in this life
    Things are much harder than in the after world
    In this life
    You’re on your own

    And if the elevator tries to bring you down
    Go crazy

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Lol!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    My condolences on your loss.

    Legends MJ and Whitney brought me to my knees when they passed, mourned for weeks like I knew them personally as family members, blame it on the timeless gift that is their music. Prince is no different, what a devastating loss. Feels like an era just died, can't explain. My goodness, I pray he went in his sleep.
    RIP

    For someone being "married into a family of them" that is a very loose connection for you to be confirming what they believe..

    You are wrong (or the random person who posted this original gossip), JW would not convince him he was cured.. that is just nothing something they do.

    Let me say this. Prince was legendary. The man was genius. Thank you God for blessing us with his work. We are lucky to have experienced his awesomeness. That man what true to himself. Authentic. Wasn't afraid to be who he was regardless of critics. Not just a musical but cultural icon. So I'm going to focus on the positives because I believe no one goes before their time. His artistry will live on.

    His religion would have nothing to do with his alleged HIV status. The only medical treatment they have any objections to are blood transfusions, and there are even concessions to that a person can make with regards to what parts of blood they will accept, there are also other alternatives modern science has come up with.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    And to think that Vanity died 2 months ago too, also at 57.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    My mother in law needs surg. right now and is a JW for all her years. I have talked about it here recently. Certain surg. cant be done bloodless. Due to negative reactions to drugs before hand, and other underlying conditions. In her case a lot of conditions. We just dont know about folks medical status.

The only thing keeping me ok is that realization that it will be my moms first heavenly birthday and now he will be among her in the heavenly kingdom! Rest in Paradise to the Most Beautiful One!

    Why would he feel remorse for standing up for his beliefs? When you believe death is permanent I can see why you'd be sad or upset with him. Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe that. understand where someone is coming from and maybe you won't be judgmental. If at the end of the time if he is right, he'll being hugging his baby and feeling sorry for you because you missed out by not taking the time to learn something.

    my mother in law is bleeding internally. Currently. As in right now. Due to complications from a hernia removal. They cannot recycle her blood during a procedure or take any of her blood for a transfusion using her own bc she has diabetes (poor circulation) and a host of other reasons. Right now they are waiting for hopefully meds to kick in to stop her hemorrhaging. My father in law has said absolutely not to a transfusion. She has too. All of the kids including my ex husband are there, do not practice the religion and are distraught but are respecting their parents wishes. She has been in the hospital for the past 4.5 weeks.

    The key phrase here is "the kids are respecting their parents wishes.' My mother was a Jehovah Witness until the day she died and although I am not, I tried to respect her and her beliefs in life and again in death. There were some comments made I'm sure about her service but I can honestly say I think I made her proud that day because I did things the way she would have wanted, not any one else. My prayers go out to your Mil and your family. Please don't laugh but my mother ALWAYS would say "Trust in Jehovah" and I do believe sometimes that's all you can do.

    I'm not offended.. i know your HORT and you know mine! I don't know if he had AIDS/HIV or a papercut. He might have believed he was cured (Magic does lol) maybe he was refusing treatment of some kind but all I am saying was that it would have nothing to do with his being a Jehovah's Witness made him believe he was cured.

    If you've studied then you know the basic hope of Jehovah's Witnesses is not heavenly but earthly with no sickness, sin, or death. Some people with chronic illness may choose to refuse treatment because they are tired of fighting what is a losing battle so they choose palliative care. If someone was Catholic and made that choice no one would say "they refused treatment because the Virgin Mary said they were cured". If he had the hope of the resurrection maybe he said I'm willing to wait for that. I don't know it's all speculation.

    The retelling of events to the eventual posting on a chat forum would most likely leave out a lot of the timeline and true events which has led to snippet of "He was JW and they told him he could stop".

    "Some" folks are going to always be doing something to the left... but don't put what "some" are doing on an entire group of people. What your JW family members are doing doesn't matter to what the Organization as a whole believes. The website tells you what they believe, what they teach, and what they value, if "some" folks act differently then that's "some folks" but you use that to then say that's what JWs do/believe...That's all I'm saying

  • Jovet

    Prince was no spring chicken. He wasn't old but he wasn't young. Young and old are most vulnerable both to pneumonia and influenza. And if you're a workaholic and don't take care of yourself, you really can work yourself to death.

    All the rumor mongering on here is so stupid and disrespectful. We don't know what he died of. All the possibilities are on the table. Ignorant people clamoring to exclaim it was one thing or another which killed Prince should try having things like that said about their mother or brother or sister and see how they like it.

    No doubt Prince was a weird guy, but geniuses usually are. He was still a person. His talent and energy and individuality will be missed from here on. R.I.P.

  • SpideySense

    Me too. All these new artists using 90's beats are making me feel old though.

    How would you know what his feelings were? Do you know how many diseases you can catch through others blood? His wife's dying is one thing and I'm sure he loved her dearly.

    Her not taking blood was her choice and he backed her up. Stop assuming you and the nursing staff know how him and his family should feel.

    I promise I feel like a good friend has died.
    I thought Prince would live forevah.

  • Janey

    So sad... I loved his music, he will be missed. .For those who said Prince is in heaven, as one of Jehovah's Witnesses....he believed, correctly that when you die no part of you lives on, you are asleep, living in GOD's memory and your life will be restored during the resurrection. All who died will be restored to a paradise earth cleansed of the wicked. Living in the conditions, that GOD intended for Adam and Eve...As a former Jehovah's Witnesses(JW), I believe this as well;however the JW and all religions are false satanic traps...Get out of ALL religions, GOD does need or use religion to lead his sheep, we do not need religion for salvation for GOD's approval..

    In truth Genius can often be a Curse, for the Gifted. In Entertainment , just the brutal nature of Business side, Remember Princes protest when he wrote Slave on his Face. And Michael Jackson and his Label protest and standoff as well.

    Feeling trapped, and enslaved and like a circus exhibit can have a deadly toll, History shows us the artist looks for escape,the Method of Escapism , or Choice of Poisen over the years has destructive effects mentally and physically.

    The fans, exspecially the fans of Artist who truly just love to perform, who truly live for sharing their gifts, are the last know, and the most devistated.

    Thanks for Sharing your Gifts with the World Prince.

  • Just Keya

    We don't care what he died from. Matter of fact let me just speak for me. I could care less if that is what he died from. Prince is a legend and it does not make his death any less sad or painful for people. Prince was a class act, IMO and I won't make jokes about his death.

  • Just Keya

    People are just igronant as hell. If the man did die from AIDS then what? *waits with snacks on an answer*

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Yes , just passing through. Thanks for the pleasant Greeting. His Tidal deal will fall into the hands of his Estate Affairs. He did not have Tradtional beliefs when it came to Medical Issues, Medical Treatment, or even Life and Death. I do know he dealt with alot of Pain from Decades of Very Private Medical Issues, and that eventually he did relent to taking pain medication.

    I would not be surprised if he has No Traditional Will or No Will at all. He has tons and tons of unreleased music spanning decades. His Music Catologe and the Unrealeased Music already has legal paper work flying because of its value and rising value it will need to be secured in a safe place due the sudden death and those who may have access to it in the home. I exspect Major Legal Drama to unfold regarding its Ownership

    What makes you accept the NIV translation versus NWT?

    And I've compared, NIV to NWT to KJ.. They were all pretty similar, its mainly application I have found to be the difference rather than wording.

  • MissyJ

    And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
    From King James

    Its not shunning, it not disowning, sometimes folks that are acting up need a moment away to get themselves together. When doing an intervention for example, the advise family members to have their conditions one of which is usually you can't live here, you can't come around, amongst no money,no rides etc etc... The basic principle is the same. But because religion is attached folks lose their minds over it. When I can bet you have a family member or friend RIGHT NAH you don't "mess with all like that" and made that choice for whatever reason.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    ONE LAST THING...YOU LEFT OUT V4 WHERE IT'S WRITTEN JUDGEMENT HAS ALREADY BEEN PASSED ON THE ONES WHO BEHAVE THIS WAY...IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHUN, THAT'S ON YOU, BUT THIS DOES NOT SAY WHAT YOU WERE INITIALLY IMPLYING. VENGEANCE NOR JUDGEMENT BELONG TO US...ONLY TO THE MOST HIGH. GOD BLESS!

    IN THIS MANNER, I MOST DEFINITELY AGREE!!! BUT THE MAIN MESSAGE OVERALL IS THAT "GOD IS LOVE"...WE HAVE FREE WILL TO DO WHATEVER WE CHOOSE BECAUSE IN THE END, WE ONLY HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR SELF AND NOBODY ELSE.

    HOWEVER - MY FAITH/BELIEFS DON'T FORCE ME TO SHUN OTHERS BECAUSE OF THEIR LIFESTYLE, CHOICES, DECISIONS, ETC...IT IS THE WELL BEING OF SELF THAT DOES IT FOR ME. IF YOU'VE SHOWN ME THAT YOU AIN'T ISHT - I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO BELIEVE YOU. BUT NEVER BECAUSE OF WHERE I ATTEND SERVICE ON A WEEKLY BASIS.

    No, I'm sorry that you are so imbecile-minded to believe some troll's lie that Prince died of HIV. Before you just throw out some trash like that, at least wait until you have the facts. I know it's hard to overcome innate dumbness, but practice makes perfect. Practice researching before opening your vault of ignorance.

  • kiddo1

    You can always see the "SON" day or night! Prince was deep in the gospel...he will be missed.

  • kiddo1

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ???

    Mannnnn I been looking for your commentary for a while now. I seen that shout out Snitch gave you..finally! Bravo!?I knew you had that good good so thank you for dropping it. Keep us informed cause I KNOW you know.
    P.s Is that goatee still proper? ?

  • MissyJ

    There is no judgment.. it basically stay away from folks acting a fool so you don't end up acting a fool right along with them. Prov 13:20

    You have this idea of shunning and turning you back on people, hating folks etc. That's not what it is. No one shuns anybody

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    Lol lol, Im Flattered, and Humbled....Thank you for your Kind Words.Its a beard now. (Smile)!!!!

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    SO EXPLAIN DISFELLOWSHIPPING TO ME...EXPLAIN WHY MOST JW'S DON'T AFFILIATE WITH NON-JW'S...OR TALK DOWN ON NON-JW'S. THERE IS MOST DEFINITELY A JUDGEMENT, BUT IT WON'T BE HUMAN JUDGEMENT. I'VE BEEN SHUNNED WHILE IN THE MIDST OF JW'S ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS...THEIR BOOK IS NOT THE SAME PERIOD.

    TRY TO FIND ACTS 8:37 AND LET ME KNOW WHAT IT SAYS...NWT

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    THERE'S PRETTY MUCH 2 DISCUSSIONS FOLDED INTO ONE...IF I NEED TO ELABORATE LET ME KNOW. I HAVE A TENDENCY TO RUN MY THOUGHTS/WORDS TOGETHER...

  • MissyJ

    So you're upset that because people who were only supposed to copy the bible altered it (Bible researchers and historians have determined this) so those verses, Acts 8:37 is not the only one, have been omitted?

    What do you talk about with your friends? If we don't watch the same shows, go to the same events, dress the same, or have much in common why would there even be a want for affiliation? That's not someone judging you... that's recognizing that there really isn't a gateway for much a relationship. Think about these things practically.

    But yes there are biblical reasons for "keeping yourself separate from the nations". Amish live in communities, Jews live in communities....

    We already discussed keeping what random folks do out of the discussion cause its always gonna be some folks somewhere acting stank.

    Disfellowshipping is a LAST resort when someone is unrepentant, there is a whole process where you can ask for help, guidance, prayers if you want to stop doing whatever. If you don't, then no you can't be influencing other folks. And they are not shunned, sent away, or kicked out they are welcomed to attend meetings. It's basically a time out for someone to get themselves together. It's discipline. Would you hang around or want you child hanging around someone drinking, smoking, wylin, and not wanting to do any better? You associate with like minded people.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    OKAY...AS MUCH AS I'D LIKE TO READ THIS, I JUST DON'T WANT TO. I'LL JUST DROP THIS HERE. CLIFFSNOTES: THIS GUY SECRETLY FILMED HIS DISFELLOWSHIP...I'M ABOUT 40 MINUTES IN NOW. HE'S SPITTING SO MUCH TRUTH AT THEM AND ALL THEY CAN COME UP WITH IS "SO YOU DOUBT THIS? YOU STILL HAVE DOUBTS?" HE MAKES A TON OF SENSE. I'VE EXPRESSED MY DISTASTE FOR JW'S BECAUSE OF PAST AND PRESENT INSTANCES WHERE I'VE SEEN THEM (OR BEEN ON THE RECEIVING END OF) MISTREAT PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY AREN'T WITNESSES. AND NO...THAT'S NOT RIGHT. NOT IN THE NAME OF JESUS IT ISN'T. ARE YOU A WITNESS? CAN YOU TELL ME WHO YOU BELIEVE JESUS IS? SON OF GOD OR THE FIRST CREATED ANGEL? MY GOD GOES BY MANY NAMES, BUT IT DOESN'T CHANGE HIS MESSAGE. LORD, JEHOVAH, THE GREAT I AM, ELOHIM....MANY NAMES; ONLY ONE MOST HIGH.

    OMISSION AND ALTERATION IS 2 DIFFERENT THINGS...THE APOCRYPHA IS OMITTED; THE NWT IS ALTERED AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY. YES BOTH CAN BE EXPECTED WHEN TRANSLATION COMES INTO PLAY, BUT THE WORD IS THE WORD. IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD. SIMPLE.

  • ???

    Oh ok!?I see you!?
    You're very welcome sir!
    Your commentary is always so on point but on this particular artist I just NEEDED to get your input. I went over to RWS and sure enough there you were but I know if I don't catch you then I lose cause you get in and out real quick. Anyway I'm a Prince fanatic always have been and I'm totally beside myself about this news. Thank you for making some sense out of this. I'm watching the news right now and they're talking about his pain and medication addiction ..percoset (sp)
    Soooo you don't remember me? No? Nothing?

    Good evening good sir. Hope all is well. I haven't seen you on the net in a few but I was wondering about that rumor that Apple was in talks to buy Tidal and what it will mean for Prince music lovers such as myself. They are looking for you and your infinite wisdom over at RWS ?too.
