Pop music superstar Prince is dead at 57
We can't believe we're writing these words, but here it goes: Prince died today at the age of 57.
According to TMZ, the singer’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota early Thursday morning.
On April 15, Prince Rogers Nelson’s jet made an emergency landing in Illinois when the musician fell ill. His representatives said he had been battling a bad bout of the flu, but he still managed to show up for his concert the next day. He canceled two shows prior to that performance due to health issues.
