Pop Superstar Prince Dead at 57 Is There a Conspiracy? (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Prince has died at age 57.

“It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary iconic performer, Prince, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57,” his publicist Yvette Noel-Schure said in a statement. “There are no further details as to the cause of his death at this time.”

Born Prince Rogers Nelson on June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the singer, songwriter, multiple instrumentalist, producer and actor was recognized as a musical genius, trend setter and advocate for artists’ rights. His indelible impact on pop music culture dates back to when he first surfaced in 1978 with his debut album “For You.”

ABC News confirmed that the Carver County Sheriff’s Department has launched an investigation at the singer’s Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

The news comes days after a flight Prince, 57, was a passenger on had to make an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois. The singer was then rushed to a local hospital, where he was treated for the flu, his rep confirmed. He was released three hours later.

Prince had been battling the illness for weeks, his rep said.

The singer, who was on his “Piano and a Microphone” tour,” also had to cancel two shows earlier in the month due to the flu. The “Purple Rain” singer’s last performance was Thursday night in Atlanta.

Named after the Prince Roger Trio, a jazz band his father performed with, Prince was signed to Warner Brother Records as a teenager.

His early albums — 1979’s “Prince,” 1980’s “Dirty Mind” and 1981’s “Controversy” — built his core fan base while also creating controversial buzz due to their fusion of religious and sexual themes.

Combining rock, R&B, soul, funk, hip hop, disco, psychedelia, jazz, and pop, Prince was regarded as the pioneer of Minneapolis sound. He also gained a reputation for being a staunch perfectionist.

The 1984 semi-autobiographical rock musical drama film “Purple Rain” –- and its best-selling soundtrack — vaulted him into the pop stratosphere. The film won the now-defunct Best Original Song Score award at the Oscars and the album was his best-selling one, amassing sales of over 25 million copies.

In 1993, a legal battle ensued between Warner Bros. and Prince over the artistic and financial control of his musical output. During the intense lawsuit, he appeared in public with the word “slave” written on his cheek and started going by the name The Artist Formerly Known as Prince.

With a singing style renowned for its versatility of reaching from the highest falsetto to the deepest baritone, Prince influenced an entire generation of artists. Today, you can hear remnants of his artistry in music by acts such as Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Miguel, and a few veterans too, such as Lenny Kravitz, Meshell Ndegeocello, D’Angelo and Maxwell.

Through the years, a host of music legends have performed his compositions, most notable are Khan’s cover of “I Feel for You,” MeLi’sa Morgan’s stirring rendition of “Do Me Baby” and Stephanie Mills’ take on “How Come You Don’t Call Me Anymore?,” which Keys covered in 2001 and enjoyed chart success with. Blues and soul legend Millie Jackson released an audacious cover of Prince’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover” as a lead single from her 1986 “An Imitation of Love” opus.

During the 1990s, Ginuwine launched his career with a clunky cover of “When Doves Cry,” TLC redid “Get It Up” for the “Poetic Justice” soundtrack, and Mariah Carey and Sisqo worked new wonders on his classic “The Beautiful Ones.”

In 2013, he collaborated with Ledisi on the funk track “Ain’t Gonna Miss U When U’re Gone,” and with Janelle Monae for “Givin Em What They Love.”

Notoriously known as a recluse, Prince appeared as himself on a 2014 episode of the Fox comedy “New Girl.”

Through his career, Prince won seven Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

Known as a touring draw, he wowed crowds at arenas worldwide and became infamous for secret concerts at intimate venues.

During the 1980s, at the height of his popularity, Prince was most frequently compared to Michael Jackson, who was considered his fiercest music rival.

He collaborated with a wide array of music acts including Sheena Easton, Stevie Nicks, Kate Bush, Madonna, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Cyndi Lauper and his former lover Sheila E. Through the years –- and a few name changes –- Prince spun his musical magic into outfits such as The Time, the all-female Vanity 6, and The New Power Generation.

The first video is him talking about depopulation and chemtrails recently..

Is there a Conspiracy?

      Seeing as how ALL entertainers of his calibur owe their carreers to the satanic forces behind the recording industry…I guess it was time for him to refund his pound of flesh. I would say, rest in peace, except I’m afraid there is no peace for the soul of someone that sold it to the dark side.

      As the saying goes, live by the sword and die by the sword. Shameful loss, nonetheless.

        i wonder if prince would have wanted to trade lives with my bro-in-law–drove tanker truck around reno nv for the last 30 years–married to same woman 41 years–3 great kids doing well-7 very cute grand kids–he is bald–little bit fat–nice guy,nice home,nice life– you said, prince wanted the dark side….

      Another hoax just like the Pritchet Bigfoot hoaxes. Buffoon.

      • Jeffery Pritchett

        While some reports allege news of Prince’s death is a hoax, the singer’s publicist JUST confirmed his passing to the Associated Press. Do some research before you insult people rat baby lips.

        • Anonymous

          My bad and my apologies to you. But I still think that many of these celebrity deaths are hoaxes and a way to retire while increasing sales.

          • Jeffery Pritchett

            Alright I’ll take back the rat baby lips.. lol But you still owe Bigfoot dude bro.

            • Anonymous

              I will be Double Rat Lips if anyone comes up with a real Bigfoot.

              Dumb Bass…

              Pritchett IS a Bigfoot.

              He just shaved off all his head hair for his avatar photo.

            • FAT AXL!!!

              What one of yous idiots downvoted the Beefster’s comment? Don’tchoos know nothin about nothin? Jeffery Pritchett is most definitely a Bigfoot.


        • Jeffery Pritchett

          I have interviewed many Tribal Shamans.. Bigfoot does indeed exist. You shallow breathers just cannot comprehend his ethereal grooves. Native have wrote many stories of the Hairyman hanging out with the Coyote trickster aka the Dogman.

    • Betsy

      Funny how that was the first thing that came to mind, him faking his death to run and hide before the mother lode of crap hit the fan.

    • Syrin

      Dude died of HIV. He said taking anti-virals was against his religion.

      • 1 darkstar

        I’m going to have to say that that is a possibility.

      Like with Merle Haggard I am convinced Prince died of “Chemtrail Cough.” The nano particles of aluminum oxide, barium and genetically modified live organisms make it physically impossible to expel this garbage from your lungs. The first time you get a bad cold or flu bug your immune system is overwhelmed. With the combined attack on your respiratory system you’re toast! As a homeless advocate and motorcycle enthusiast I have watched firsthand this phenomenon evolve over the past several years as our skis become increasingly congested with areal spraying. I have myself, a motorcycle rider developed a productive cough that has been persistent for over two years to date. Kaiser doctors without defining the cause don’t appear to be at all concerned with treating it. I just recovered from a common cold that nearly put me down even after accepting their pneumonia vaccine before my
      Thimerosal enlightenment.

      One patent that recently caught my attention involved the use of a certain fungus that can remain in a dormant state for decades and later activated by particular ELF frequency. The patent suggests that viruses natural or manufactured are neither dead or alive but instead host driven. This means a targeted virus could be embedded in the fungus remaining inactive until the host (fungus) is revitalized by selected frequency. Once the fungus is activated it acts as the host for the virus. The virus flourishes reproducing and becomes contagiously active. This ability allows both personalized and group biological attacks with untraceable impunity. The big question is why would anyone bear the expense of development if they did not intend to use it. Could this technology be at play?

    • LifeIs

      vinividivinci of course he was connected. But look at the things he said, near the end of his life.

      “Just when you thought you were safe” is the first part of a sentence. Left unsaid is something about being NOT safe.

      “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers” could indicate he expected to die, even though he didn’t look sick. That could indicate some major illness or an intent to commit suicide. Or to fake his death. You’d think someone who expected to be murdered would try to escape.

      “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers” could indicate knowledge that we will be praying about something else, in that time frame. And that his demise, at this time, is not something to grieve about. It doesn’t matter so much, because _____.

      • vinividivinci

        I hear what you’re saying @ Lifels…food for thought indeed.

        • FAT AXL!!!

          Yo. Vinnie V?

          Whatchoo tryin to do to my good name?

    • vinividivinci

      Folks just pass on for all sorts of reasons.

    • cavemanish

      In the second video with the “blank white images” Prince posted…the total picture is essentially the Kabbalah tree of life, – just when he got a peep at the top – “just when you thought you were safe”……

    • CoolTA1962

      The Artist… RIP

    • The Seer

      Conspiracy no he just died

      • FAT AXL!!!

        Maybe he didn’t. Yous ever thinkabowt that?

    • Jacko

      Typical BIN vulture! Someone dies and you jump right on it with your nonsense. Pathetic.

      • Jeffery Pritchett

        Still upset about my Michael Jackson article when he died? I know you’re a big fan via the name Jacko. Now go bugger a puss toot.

    • foon1e

      C’mon! It’s Obvious – BIN Is Where Both Wackos And Doves Go To Cry & Die… :shock:

    • Mighty Mouse

      when your contract is up it’s time to pay your dues…
      any of you remember Vanity ? Prince’s girlfriend and co star ?
      guess what… she died two months ago at the same sweet age of 57
      uh huh… :twisted:

    • Big dog.../small fish...

      There we go – the conspiracy nuts are out in full force

    • Canderson

      When did they remove all those Prince music videos from YouTube? This could indicate pre knowledge of his departure.
      Hollywood Star Whackers? When you are worth more dead than alive, like Michael Jackson was, became.

    • Pilgrim

      Most of us know, who controls the music industry today. There is an old saying: “Never bite the hand that feeds you!” When money, big money is involved, nothing is left to ‘chance’.

    • That Smith-Mundt Kid

      21.04.2016 — Prince dies at age 57. Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 90th birthday. 33 years.

      He was an independent business man and at times outspoken r/t chem-trails, population control, etc.

      His body was found in an ELEVATOR and ELEVATOR is the theme of his hit song “LET’S GO CRAZY” which is about seizing the day, death, life, and afterlife.

      He was a 57 year old man who walked in high heels and platform shoes. Hips were destroyed. Chronic PAIN, OPOID pain control. A little too much and it’s OVERDOSE vs SUICIDE vs MURDER.

      Rumored it’s his SISTER who’s supposed to INHERIT the most.

      Motives, methods, opportunities. Sometimes it’s not good to be prince.

      • InquisitiveMind

        Dying alone in an elevator is sad on so many levels

    • Findottier

      Psychic tells What’s Up With Prince? He is fine, he passed over quickly. Some doctors were weakening his immune system. Not intentionally, but trying to get money out of him, overdosing something. See more.
