    Utterly shocked. Just devastating news. This one hurts more than Michael's death to me. One of the coolest and most influential artists that transcended time. So glad I got to see him at least once. RIP.

    His guitar playing was out of this world. Case in point:

    I woke up to the news of Chyna passing away, and now Prince of all people. This year has been completely devastating for the loss of some of the most innovative musicians of all time. I'm completely shocked. RIP Prince.

    I really can't wrap my head around him being gone. He's been such a huge inspiration for me. Somehow I accepted Bowie's death better, probably because he had over 10 years on Prince. This really feels like it was way too early. I'm heartbroken.
