Music icon Prince dead at 57, celebrities pay tribute

The music world lost his Prince. The iconic musician died on April 21st leaving the world in shock from his die-hard fans all over the globe to celebrities who honored him last night.

He was one of the latest “living legend”. Prince who started his music career back in the 70’s was considered as one the greatest musician of our time. The man released more than 30 albums tackling genres from soul to funk, from r&b to pop. Mastering the art of the ballad or the funkiest up-tempos, he penned generational hits such as “I Wanna Be Your Lover”, “Kiss”, “Purple Rain” or “1999”.

Last week, it was reported that the Kid of Minneapolis was rushed to the hospital after not feeling well from the flu. One day later he gave an impromptu concert in Paisley Park, his place of residence in Minnesota. The exact same place where he was found unconscious in an elevator, yesterday, April 21st.

Ever since the sad news broke, celebrities have paid tribute to the legendary musician online. Check out some of their tributes below :

Prince was a gift, a genius and a reminder that we have no limits. Perhaps the most tremendous thing Prince showed us is how music can be the closest expression of freedom. His songs defied all the rules and taught us to let go of boundaries placed on us by the world and by each other. The only person who can keep chains around us and box us up is ourselves. He never gave in. I'm grateful for his example. I'm that much more free because of Prince. I hope he's found his place where he can create endless magic, mystery and music forever. The power in his songs moved me always. His music left me changed forever. I've said this before and I'll say it again, there is only one Prince. (link in bio)
