“And just like that…the world lost a lot of magic,” Katy Perry tweeted.

“R.I.P PRINCE, another icon gone to soon,” wrote Shaquille O’Neal.

TMZ reported that the singer’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota Thursday morning, while the Associated Press tweeted that the artist’s publicist confirmed “Prince has died at his home in suburban Minneapolis.”
