This is absolutely tragic, music fans. On Thursday, Apr. 21, TMZ reported that the legendary musician Prince has died at the age of 57. Prince's publicist confirmed in a statement Thursday that Prince had died at his home. Bustle has reached out to Prince's representatives and the Carver County Sheriff's Office in Minnesota. As you'd expect for a musician with such a long resume and massive legacy, many people are already deep in mourning, using Twitter to express their heartbreak over the loss of such an iconic person. And it's not just fans; the celebrity Twitter reactions to Prince's death, too, show that the musician will be greatly missed by all.
The report of Prince's passing comes just one week after a jet the star was flying in was forced to make an emergency landing due to him having a medical emergency. It's unclear yet, however, what that issue was, or if it was connected to his death. As those who loved him wait for more information and process the loss of such a massive star, celebs are speaking out on Twitter to share their sadness over Prince being gone and noting the incredible legacy he's leaving behind.
