Prince Rogers Nelson was 57. His body was discovered at his home in Minnesota early Thursday morning.
On April 15th his private jet made an emergency landing in Illinois due to a "medical emergency" but he assured his fams at a show the following day that he was OK and just battling the flu, telling them to "wait a few days before you waste any prayers".
Prince became an international superstar with his 1982 album "1999" and went on to sell over 100 million records and performed at the Super Bowl in 2007. He won 7 Grammy awards and an Oscar for the score from "Purple Rain" in 1985.
