Prince has passed away at age 57, confirmed his publicist Yvette Noel-Schure. Paramedics were requested to his estate in Paisley Park, MN.
The cause of death is unknown. This tragedy occurred just after the pop icon had to emergency land his private jet a few days ago, due to flu.
Besides his incredible contributions to the world of culture, fashion and music, Prince had also won seven Grammys in his lifetime, many more nominations and countless other awards.
