Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Prince, the musician, dies aged 57

Prince passed away Thursday morning at his Paisley Park recording studio. He was 57.

Prince’s publicist confirmed the pop music superstar’s death, according to the Associated Press.

Carver County Sheriff Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud says deputies responded to Paisley Park at 9:43 a.m. on the report of a medical situation. Later Thursday morning, authorities confirmed that there was a dead body inside.

Last Friday, Prince was briefly hospitalized. Prince’s representatives say he had been recovering from the flu, which caused him to cancel two shows earlier in April.

There was an event at Paisley Park on Saturday. According to reports, Prince appeared and showed off a new guitar, but did not perform. He also reportedly showed up at a Dakota Jazz Club show Tuesday night to watch Lizz Wright.

Paisley Park is located in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Funny thing was I always thought of him as the black Bowie. And they both go within a few months of each other.

When he tore up the music charts in the early-mid 80's, his music sounded like nothing else on the radio. Very unique talent. He seemed to burn out of hits rather quickly, though. Can't say I've heard any new memorable Prince songs since maybe 1987. Still sad to hear he's gone. What a perfromer. He never seemed to enjoy his fame.

Goodbye, symbol-guy-formerly-known-as-Prince.

Damn shame. He was a phenomenal artist.

2016 is not a good year to be famous.

Let's place bets on who will be next.
