We are so sad to report that Prince has passed away at his home, Paisley Park, in Minnesota.

TMZ broke the news to a sad and confused public, hoping this was a hoax. We remember that, on April 15th, Prince's plane made an emergency landing to rush him to the hospital, due to flu-like symptoms.

Shortly after the hour, Prince's publicist Yvette Noel-Schure confirmed to the Associated Press that the singer had indeed passed away. He leaves behind a legacy of seven Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and over 100 million albums sold worldwide. His fans are in mourning and his talent will be sorely missed.
