    Prince  Dead at 57

    The artist known as Prince has died ... TMZ has learned. He was 57.

    Prince's body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning.

    Multiple sources connected to the singer confirmed he had passed.

    The singer -- full name Prince Rogers Nelson -- had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.

    Prior to his most recent appearance however, Prince had cancelled two shows due to health concerns.

    Prince became an international superstar in 1982 after his breakthrough album "1999."

    He went on to churn out a ton of hits -- and racking up 7 Grammys in the process. He also performed at the Super Bowl in 2007 ... in one of the greatest live performances of all time.

    He also sold more than 100 million records during his career ... and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song Score for Purple Rain in 1985.

    Oh No! is right. I'm not that sure this is accurate or maybe I don't want to believe.

    Numb! Can't be real!


    I've been reading news articles but I don't feel it's real - is it? Surely not. Not Prince?

    Can't believe it. Devastated. So sad.
    And why did he leave the hospital already 3 hours after an emergency landing?

    This is so unreal. Prince's music was the soundtrack to my life. He could write a ballad like no one else. He could make a guitar talk to you. I've danced and cried to many many of his songs and that is why this group means so much to me. I could hear rare and unique songs from a master. I am really heartbroken.

    There is no 'why' to these things, they just happen.

    We could take note of this and enjoy every moment of life we have left.

    Does anyone know what happened, what were the causes of his death?

    So shocking and still so very unreal. Even seeing this now on the news on TV it doesn't seem true - could it even just be a mistake? So very sad.

    I am so pleased I got to meet him many years ago. He is the only celebrity I'd met who took my breath away - he was and will always be a true superstar! 

    The music will live on... forever!

    (TMZ) - Prince hit up a local pharmacy hours before he died -- the 4th time he visited this week -- indicating his health was far worse than the simple flu, reports TMZ.  

    TMZ obtained this photo of Prince leaving a Walgreens near his home in Minnesota Wednesday night at around 7 PM.

    Sources tell TMZ that Prince had frequented the Walgreens for years -- but last night, people at the store were concerned because he looked much more frail and nervous than usual.

    As TMZ previously reported, Prince's team told the media he was suffering from the flu. It seemed odd, because his private jet had to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, just 48 minutes from his home.

    Prince was hospitalized ... but was discharged after only a few hours. Sources in Moline told TMZ at the time they felt Prince left the hospital way too soon because he was "not doing well" and needed further medical care.

    On Saturday, the day after he was released from the hospital, Prince took the stage at a dance party near his home and curiously said, "Wait a few days before you waste any prayers."

    Prince died Thursday morning. Officials are investigating the cause of death.

    Tomorrow I will wake up without my mentor, life will carry on, but there is a pain in my heart right now that will take time to heal. It had to come sometime, but I do feel it was far too early for him to leave the stage.
