The Artist formerly known as The Artist Formerly Known As Prince, Symbol, Sexy MF, His Royal Badness, The Purple One, was found dead in his home in Minnesota earlier today. He was 57 years old. Say what you want about the guy (especially in his recent years, including but not limited to his firmly held belief that the internet is a passing fad), he was an incredibly influential musician in his day, and he will be remembered. Rest in peace, you sexy motherfucker. Source: the entire internet.
