Adam Lambert, Melissa Etheridge and Boy
George were among the out celebrities paying tribute Thursday to
music legend Prince.
The 57-year-old Prince was pronounced
dead at 10:07 AM on Thursday, roughly 24 minutes after an
unidentified man called 911 stating that the musician's body was
found in an elevator in his home in Minnesota.
“Today is the worst day ever,” Boy
George messaged. “Prince R.I.P. I am crying!”
“My life, love and music is more sexy
and soulful because he lived and created,” tweeted Etheridge.
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres called
Prince “brilliant and larger than life.” “What a sad day,”
“So sad about Prince,” Lambert
wrote. “You will be missed.”
Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted: “Prince
was a true innovator and a singular artist. His music and influence
will live on for generations. Rest in peace.”
