here's him embarrassing a bunch of legends
Usually not one for Super Bowl halftime shows, but he put on one of the best.
Talented guy. Sorry to hear ..........
This stuff always puts one's mortality in perspective.
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
Wow. More than just a talented guy, he was truly an icon of music. Along the lines of a Michael Jackson or a Madonna. What a loss. We are losing so many icons in all areas, not just music.

sad news indeed.
unfortunately, the website blind gossip was prepping people for this 3 days ago.
RIP! Some legendary music.
David Bowie, Glenn Frey, and now Prince. Awful year for music.
Prince's first stuff came out almost 40 years ago. If it came out today people would be like "what is this!? this is sexy man, I'm with it."
Coolest human being on earth, at least in my lifetime.
This goes without saying, but that guy transcended music. I don't know that I'll ever see so many people in such utter awe of a musicial performer.

It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

What's everyone's favorite Prince song? I'm having a hard time chosing between "Little Red Corvette" and "Raspberry Baret" myself...

With Phife Dawg passing earlier this year, it's been really bad for music legends under 5'5". Somebody needs to make sure Bjork's spacesuit is correctly pressurized.
Let's Go Crazy is probably my favorite, but the way he played the guitar on When Doves Cry was great. May have been the best of his generation on that alone, then throw in everything else. Half of the '80's big 4, Jackson, Prince, Madonna and Springsteen are gone. I might include Whitney in there as well to make it 5. Amazing people gone too soon.
Bambi, for the old school.

It looks like he didn't have a will. I'm shocked by this.
Also, they're turning Paisley Park into a museum sometime in the future.
What do you guys think? He has 1 sister and five half siblings. I can't stand his sister but kind of agree with her.
I think Minnesota says it's divided equally among them and whatever number it is, it's a windfall to her and unearned, and so the law is the law. If she's asking them to agree to take less so that she can take more, I don't think they legally have to do that. And why would they?
I could maybe understand if she'd been by his side for years, writing songs with him, managing his affairs, etc... Especially if she wasn't compensated heavily for that. But to come in at his death and say "I want more than you guys"... even though the law says they are all entitled to an equal share... Just isn't going to fly and there's no reason (moral or legal) for them to agree.
That said... If she wants them to agree to a business arrangement like making Paisley Park a museum or something, or donating X$ to a charity that Prince liked, (versus just liquidating the estate and splitting the pie) and only then dividing the remainder equally, then that would be different. At least I'd see her side more. Still, the law will not favor that IF the others don't agree.
So it's maybe possible she's not just trying to keep a bigger pie for herself.

Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.
