Prince Has Passed Away At Age 57

by Meghan Sara

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.
