CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — Prince, one of the most inventive and influential musicians of modern times with hits including "Little Red Corvette," ''Let's Go Crazy" and "When Doves Cry," was found dead at his home on Thursday in suburban Minneapolis. He was 57.
Social media users around the world mourned the death of U.S. pop music star Prince on Thursday. Actors, musicians and celebrities quickly jumped on social media, expressing shock and sadness. Actor-singer Will Smith said in a Facebook post that he was "stunned and heartbroken," and had just spoken to Prince the night before his death.
Banks retweeted a Soundcloud link to the track tagged "Rihanna demo snippet" and said: "You wanna hear one of the songs I did for, what's this bitch, antioxidant?" - a term she's used in the past to seemingly referring to Rihanna's "ANTI". According to Pitchfork, Banks also said that her video for "The Big Big Beat" and a wider release of Slay-Z have been delayed due to a new distribution deal she is about to sign.
The year 2016 is proving to be a tough one for fans of awesome music and the trend-setters that created it. Music icon and entirely unique human being Prince was found dead Thursday morning in his Paisley Park recording studio in Minnesota. TMZ was the first to break the news. A cause of death has not yet been reported, but on April 15, Prince forced an emergency landing of the private plane he was on due to flu-like symptoms. He performed a day later. It is not known if the issue was related to his death. Prince Rogers Nelson is best known for his powerful genre-busting epics, including "I Would Die 4 U," "When Doves Cry," and "1999," and for his film Purple Rain and the soundtrack album and single of the same name. The enigmatic superstar also flirted with television, appearing in The Muppets and, oddly enough, New Girl in 2014. Here's a clip of his appearance, in which Nick and Jess act like anyone of us would act upon seeing Prince. Prince also performed arguably the best Super Bowl halftime show of all time in 2007, playing a medley of hits in the rain as though God approved with tears of joy, and yeah that's a bit dramatic, but it was an astounding sight. But oddly enough, one of the best mentions of Prince on television didn't feature Prince at all. It was a personal anecdote by Charlie Murphy on Chappelle's Show that provided insight into the curious creature Prince was, and revealed to the world that Prince could ball and loved pancakes. And it only made viewers love Prince more. R.I.P., Prince. You will be missed.

The first weekend of the cultural zeitgeist that is Coachella concluded last night, and guess who was there living it up and snapping selfies galore? That's right, flaxen-haired culinary icon of our time Guy Fieri.
Pop superstar Rihanna capped a celebrity-filled Coachella festival Sunday with a surprise appearance, as her sometime songwriter Sia took a sharply different approach by testing the possibilities of on-stage anonymity. Rihanna turned up unannounced on stage during a headlining set of Calvin Harris, the British DJ behind a slew of electronic-infused smash hits. Sporting a camouflage cap, Rihanna went into her song "We Found Love," which was written by Harris, to the cheers of thousands of fans at the close of three days of revelry in the heat of the California desert.
