Prince R.I.P.


Bislang berichtet nur TMZ über ein angebliches Ableben von Prince, die lagen aber bereits mit Michael Jackson damals sehr richtig. Die Meldung, dass es an seiner Adresse zu einem Todesfall kam, hatte ich allerdings vor einer Stunde bereits gesehen. Updates wie sie reinkommen. Fuck.

The artist known as Prince has died ... TMZ has learned. He was 57. Prince's body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning. Multiple sources connected to the singer confirmed he had passed. The singer -- full name Prince Rogers Nelson -- had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.

[update 19:10] Laut BuzzfeedNews (die eher verlässlich sind), hat Prince' Pressemensch seinen Tod bestätigt. Fuck this year.

[update 19:12] Hier nochmal Bestätigung von AP: „His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, told The Associated Press the music icon was found dead at his home Thursday in Chanhassen.“

[update 21:41] Von Spin: „Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park this morning. He died on the scene after CPR attempts.“

[update 21:44] NME: „Fans of Prince have congregated outside Paisley Park and First Avenue, the Minneapolis club where Purple Rain was filmed, following news of his death.“
