(Gossip-Grind) Music Icon Prince Dead At 57
Music icon Prince has died at his home in Minnesota. Police were called to a medical emergency at his Paisley Park estate earlier on Thursday. An investigation is now under way.
“It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57,” said his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure.
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. We’ve obtained the emergency dispatch call for a “male down, not breathing.”
At the show, Prince prophetically told the crowd, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.”

Rest in peace Prince Rogers Nelson.
