Today (April 21) the world mourns and digests the devastating news that the legendary Prince has passed away.
Prince was hospitalized last week for a case of the flu after making an emergency landing in Illinois. However, he didn't let that stop him from throwing a dance party at his Paisley Park estate this past Saturday (April 16). Not only did his actions help prove that he was feeling fine, his words did too.
“Wait a few days before you waste any prayers," Prince said in an attempt to reassure fans during what would be his final public appearance.”
As reported, Prince didn't plan on performing Saturday evening at the party he was hosting, but wanted to prove that rumors regarding his health were false. There wasn't even a microphone next to his piano, Prince just wanted to be Prince.
