Musical Icon, Prince, Dead at Age 57

Prince Dead at 57 Years Old

The musical legend known as Prince was found dead the morning of April 21, 2016. At only 57 years old, Prince began feeling ill from the flu a few weeks ago. Just when he though he was starting to feel better the illness got really bad. So bad, that while on a flight the pilot had to make an emergency stop to rush Prince to the hospital. Unfortunately, he never fully recovered and was found dead this morning at the Paisley Park Estate in Minnesota. (New break from TMZ)

Prince’s full name is Prince Rogers Nelson and began his musical career in 1978 with the release of ‘For You‘. He created his own style of funky pop by mixing a variety of music including R&B, soul, hip hop, pop, jazz and funk. He was an icon and a legend whose successful career spanned more than 3 decades.

Is the ‘Prince is Dead’ a hoax?

No, Prince was really found dead in his recording studio this morning. The reason for the hoax rumors is because a few days ago on April 15th, Prince was hospitalized due to a flu. People took to Twitter to feed off of the hospitalization to spread sick rumors about Prince passing away. But what came as a hoax has unfortunately turned to reality as his illness took a turn for the worse.
