Such sad news. First David Bowie now Prince. Music legend and icon Prince 57 passed away yesterday early on Thursday morning at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota. The rock star and music legend did have a medical emergency on April 15th, that forced his jet to make an emergency landing in Moline Illinois. TMZ broke the story that the singer overdosed on the highly addictive drug Percocet while on board his jet and this was the reason for the landing. The star had to be given a “save shot” upon landing by medical emergency staff and he was then rushed to hospital last Friday sources stated. Police were called to his Paisley Park compound where he was said to be found dead in a lift at his estate Thursday. The stars cause of death is still being dertermined. However the “Purple Rain” singer was said to have had a chronic hip problem and needed a hip replacement. But because of his devout Jehovah’s Witness faith he refused treatment and surgery. Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier told CBS that Prince did have surgery on his hips but was still struggling with pain. The star had to use a cane to help him walk and he suffered with pain from his hips for years because of his energetic dance routines on stage. Furthermore a source told People that he was dealing with an “ongoing” illness. Prince was seen at a Walgreens pharmacy 15 hours before his death looking “frail” and nervous” but it is not known why he was there. The hitmaker made his final appearance on Saturday at a dance party in Minnesota to give people “living proof” he was still alive and at the event he showed off his new guitar and piano. The star didn’t sing but he did tell the crowd “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers”. Prince sold more than 100 million records in his 40 year career. He was awarded 7 Grammys and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song Score for Purple Rain in 1985.
