Worst News of the Month: TMZ reporting Prince is dead

We woke up to news that Chyna, the former WWE star, had passed away at the age of 45. Now TMZ is reporting Prince is dead at the age of 57.

The singer had been battling an illness but his camp insisted it was the flu, and he assured fans he was okay at a recent concert, the report says. His body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early this morning,

This can’t be happening. Not Prince. Not now. It’s not time for the legend to go. It’s only been a couple of months since we lost Bowie… now Prince???

Take a moment if you need it.

If you need me, I’ll be watching his Super Bowl halftime performance all day.

      I wonder if Sinead O Conner is going to miss him. Remember when he held her hostage and beat the shit out of her for recording “Nothing Compares to You.” Supposedly he hated people covering his songs.

      You’re an awful person.

      Someone on the Internet who lacks all class and goes by the screen name “Dickbutt” is telling you this. Let that sink in for a minute, then reconsider your life.

    Yep, forget all the death and destruction around the world, Prince dying tops it all. Watching the above mentioned performance may happen once to refresh my memory but watching it all day leads me to believe that Drew’s life is on a level much worse than carefree.

      Pretty sure Bowie (David, that is) liked to play left handed as well as right.

    Bunch of UL fans and angry old people in the comments today

      Hilarious. Even a tongue-in-cheek comment about Prince will make you think of U of L fans. Talk about a complex.

      you’re the one who sounds angry. I came here for the jokes, just here to laugh.

    When people make jokes about someone like this dying I almost want to track them down and make fun of their relatives when they die.

    Musical tastes will vary, and Prince was not at the top of my favorites, although I like a few of his songs. Still, you have to appreciate his talent (he had serious chops on guitar, and played many instruments) and the passing of an icon. May he RIP.

      Prince hated white people. Go listen/watch to Kevin Smith tell about his experience with Prince.

    All those pancakes finally caught up with him. Still, Prince can ball.

    If Drake wore makeup he would kind of look like Prince.

      Yep, my wife saw him at the Palace in Louisville with her sisters. Kind of wish I had gone too, now that I hear the news. 🙁

      You’re not a fan, yet you took ten minutes out of your day to read the comments and put in your two cents worth. Some people really like to go out of their way to find something to bitch about. SMDH
