According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Prince's hometown paper, law-enforcement officials are investigating a death reported at the musical icon's Paisley Park compound outside the Twin Cities. Many news sites are even crashing because of demand, but the Associated Press cited Prince's publicist in this tweet:
Like the rest of the world, we are in complete and utter shock, and will never look at the color purple quite the same way again.

Good-bye, Prince. We simply weren't ready. Neither were many others around the Bayou City.
My voice is cracking so bad. I don't even know how to talk about this on the radio. Stunned. #RIPPrince— Devi (@DeviBrown) April 21, 2016
