    Prince dead at 57



    The artist known as Prince has died ... TMZ has learned. He was 57.

    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.

    The singer -- full name Prince Rogers Nelson -- had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois.
    But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.



    Prior to his most recent appearance however, Prince had cancelled two shows due to health concerns.

    Prince became an international superstar in 1982 after his breakthrough album "1999."

    He went on to churn out a ton of hits -- and racking up 7 Grammys in the process. He also performed at the Super Bowl in 2007 ... in one of the greatest live performances of all time.

    He also sold more than 100 million records during his career ... and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song Score for Purple Rain in 1985.


    Prince was married two times -- the first time to his backup dancer Mayte Garcia. They split in 2000. He then married Manuela Testolini ... but they split in 2006.

    He was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, and performed a legendary version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" to close the ceremony.

    Prince meurt à 57 ans



    Le légendaire chanteur américain Prince, l'un des plus grands musiciens pop de sa génération, est mort à l'âge de 57 ans, a annoncé jeudi le site d'informations people TMZ.


    Le shérif du comté où réside Prince a tweeté qu'une «enquête était ouverte pour un décès à Paisley Park», la résidence de Prince, mais sans donner d'identité. Le chanteur avait été hospitalisé d'urgence vendredi pour une grippe, avaient indiqué plusieurs médias.Une porte-parole du musicien n'était pas disponible dans l'immédiat.

    Le «kid de Minneapolis» a été l'un des plus grand musiciens des années 80 et 90, avec des succès comme Purple Rain, Cream, Girls & Boys et Kiss, qui ont fait danser le monde entier, mêlant riffs de guitare et rythmes funk.

    Mesurant moins d'1,60 m mais avec une personnalité surdimensionnée, celui qui était parfois présenté comme un rival de Michael Jackson était une véritable bête de scène, au style dandy et jouant sur l'androgynie sexuelle.


    Alors qu'il avait commencé une série de concerts, il avait aussi annoncé le mois dernier qu'il allait publier ses mémoires, dont son éditeur prédit qu'ils seront «anticonformistes».



    Le musicien, né sous le nom de Prince Nelson, vivait toujours en périphérie de Minneapolis. Il était resté prolifique et s'était récemment converti au streaming, estimant qu'internet lui donnait plus de liberté artistique.

    Dans les années 1990, Prince avait changé son nom pour un imprononçable «Love symbol».

    Plus connu comme guitariste, chanteur et danseur, Prince a récemment organisé des concerts dans ses studios de Paisley Park, au Minnesota, et en Australie, durant lesquels il a joué du piano en solo, déclarant qu'il voulait se confronter à un nouveau défi artistique.

    Il s'était produit à Montréal il y a exactement un mois, le 21 mars dernier, lors de deux spectacles intimes au Théâtre Maisonneuve dans le cadre de sa tournée Piano & A Microphone.

    Shocking!!!!

    I'm just hearing about it now on CNN.......

    I had recently told a friend of mine that i had never seen 'Prince' live in concert and hoped to rectify this one of these days in the near future.

    Once again, shocking news!
