Pop Artist Prince Found Dead At MN Home



CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) _ The pop music superstar Prince has died at his Minnesota home.

That word comes from his publicist, who says Prince was found dead today in suburban Minneapolis.

He was 57.

He was widely considered one of the most inventive musicians of his time, with hits including “Little Red Corvette,” “Let’s Go Crazy” and “When Doves Cry.”

He was inducted two years ago into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which hailed him as a musical and social trailblazer.

There are no details yet on how Prince died.

A small group of fans has gathered in the rain on a hillside opposite Prince’s home and studios at Paisley Park, some taking photos with their cellphones.

The music superstar’s publicist tells the AP that Prince died at his home Thursday at the age of 57.

Thirty-two-year-old Steven Scott of Eden Prairie said he was at Paisley Park last Saturday for Prince’s dance party.

He called Prince “a beautiful person” whose message was that people should love one another.
