We need answers...how the hell did this happen?????

I'm not talking just about the autopsy results but the circumstances and leading up to his death. I hope we get them. I hope if members of his entourage are culpable that they are held responsible.

The sheriff said no stone would be left unturned and the public made aware of what happened and why. Not because of morbid curiosity but to help in our grief.

Stay calm.

It will take at least 4 weeks until something valid can be stated about it.

So, it's no use to speculate right now. Waisted energy.


Of course you grief, but don't focus on this right now. It's not getting you anywhere.

99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.

It's not about speculating..it's about getting to the truth of why prince died aged 57. A seemingly healthy man with no history of substance issues or anything.

My question is why and how?

Yes I agree. We need it for some additional closure. I am just angry about it and a lot of "Whys".

Why didn't he take his health risks more seriously just days after having to go to the hospital? Or mabye he did take it seriously, but just wouldn't have helped.

.

Why didn't he call for help when he felt bad instead of getting in the elevator. Did he not have a phone near him anywhere?

.

Why did he just collapse..did he have a heart attack from OD. It just doesn't make that much sense.

..

.

Why Why Why Why WHY? WHY!

.

.

.

Yes I'm angry that Prince is gone. And I want answers too.

Why the hell was he left completely alone in that huge building after being dropped off at 8 in the evening? Only a few days before that medical staff at the airport saved his life with a "safe shot" didn't they? Why was there no friend, family, personal assistent, docter or nurse around to keep an eye out? And why was there no portable emergency system in place so all Prince needed to do is press a button and (medical) help would race to his location? His death doesn't make sense, is way too soon and could possibly have been avoided ... the thought of Prince dying all alone in that elevator is unbearable ...

Yes so soon after that emegency, he shoudl have had someone with him. Or at least a phone within arm's reach. Why didn't he at least call 911? I just want it to play out different and him still be here.

Exactly. Where was everyone? Knowing he was unwell but he was all alone. Where was his doctor after he had suffered a health scare just days earlier?

I think about this too.

But then I remember that Prince is an autocrat. He could have very well have wanted extreme privacy and, if he demanded it, he probably got it.

This is a guy that refused sleep and food while recording. Often to dangerous extremes. And he may have just wanted to be alone.

Tamron Hall who was very close to Prince. From her interview, I get the feeling she was Prince's closest confidant. She talked to him for 3 hours following the plane emergency. She said she didn't detect any sickness in his voice. He sounded clear and healthy. Even though they discussed many very private things, he really didn't want to talk about what happened so she didn't press any further.

Don't look for blame. Life doesn't work that way. Any 'guilt' you might place won't bring him back. Unless it was murder, then its just a bunch of unfortunate circumstances.

Prince was never one to be pushed around. I'm sure the major decisions were made by him. It doesn't matter. He's gone.


Pick the best tunes by Prince and play them. Those are his children. And Beautiful they are.

I'm upset too and I have a feeling that he had been dead in that elevator for hours, since night time, before he was found in the morning. I keep trying to imagine what happened. He didn't deserve that type of death.


P was obviously not well and should not have been left alone. He should have been receiving medical attention or had someone keeping him company at all times at the very least to keep an eye on him!

Paisley Park is huge. How could there not at least be any staff on site? No security? Nobody at all? Why would they leave him alone? It's very upsetting.

If someone had been with him or he could have reached someone in time to get help, maybe he could have been saved. It hurts so much to even think about the fact that he could still be here.

I also want to know what killed him. He was like a boxer in the ring who just kept getting knocked down and got up each time, until he couldn't. His body finally gave out. His failing hips plagued him, and his flu problems may have led to organ failure. Yes I am numb. I don't want to believe he is gone. It's not real.

Everyone knows that Prince was a real private person, and those that were close to him all said the same thing, when they asked him about his illness, that he really didn't want to talk about it, and assured them that he was okay. What could they do really? They couldn't force him to talk about it, or make him go to the doctor, and I'm sure that if he wanted to be left alone, he told them and they probably did as he asked. However, there is one thing that I do wonder about, if there were cameras in Paisley Park, and if so, did it capture his final moments?

I think we have incomplete information at this point. The press conference yesterday just gave us the story the authorities were presented with upon being called to the scene. The investigation was just beginning. I think that is why none of it makes sense. There are so many inconsistencies in what we know: Prince tweets he's sick, then he cancels concerts, then he announces he's fine, then the emergency landing, but he's fine, then he's gone. Everyone who saw him says he appeared to be in perfect health even on the day he passes. Doesn't make any sense.

Anger is part of grief for some. If you feel like blaming him or others, don't be too hard on yourself cause they're just thoughts and most likely temporary ones that'll pass . Just find it in you to empathize or have compassion towards him, through forgiveness if that works or celebrating his music and character, so you're not letting it drain you physically. At this point we don't know much and we will get thoughts like that, and ones we never would have expected. Self-care everyone, is so important. Sorry if I sound like a broken record in light of what's happened but I really empathize with you and went through some Tough times when another artist passed and felt silenced or misunderstood about how I was processing it

My bf and I have been asking ourselves these questions... why was he alone, why wasn't he being checked on at least, etc...

Dying alone in an elevator just "feels" very preventable at this point...

OTOH, I've seen a lot of people express concern that he was in the elevator for hours. *IF* this were true, I don't think they'd have attempted CPR would they?

I keep reading reports that he had the flu but it could have been walking pneumonia. I've had that twice and it's no joke. You can function but constantly feel exhausted and have moments where you feel like you're drowning. With all the flying from city to city and the shows, he really didn't have time to get better and pneumonia has taken down many people who never had a single health problem before just suddenly being hospitalized or dying. If it's true that he was also taking Percocets for his pain from hip replacement surgery, than that could have just compounded things. One of the side effects of Percocets is it's a respiratory depressant. If you already can barely breath due to being so congested, then those weren't going to help any. Either way, I think he shouldn't have been left alone so soon after having gone to the ER but Prince was known to be quite stubborn and probably told everyone he was fine. sad

Does anyone here feel like Influenza sounds as lame as the wordPropofol?I feel like prince did not want us fans to worry about him so made his publicist just say he had the flu.I'm speculating and trying to understand but the wait is what is hard.Back in September last year I was trying to rack my brain as to why he would give everything back to WB after his death. I feared at that time he would be gone within 6 months to a year. I was right.But why would he do that. I think he knew something. Just not when. I dont know if he was having seizures and waking up from them alone. i dont know. I think he made the deal with WB to make sure certain things he wanted for his familiy and fans to be done when he is gone. Keep paisley park as our neverland/graceland and tribute him. He probably made certain provisions for the upkeep of paisley park, charities, and for his family and the vault.again speculatingyet worried.does londel mcmillan still represent him?

As much of disaster as his business affairs generally were, do you think his personal affairs were any better? It's a tragedy.

Exactly. I think that everybody in Paisley Park cared deeply for the men. So, there is no reason to start blaming his entourage. Everybody would have wanted to prevent this if they could.

And as stated, Prince did everything in his power to convince us that he was fine. How could they nor respect his wishes? He was an adult, they could not do anything to him without his consent.

All these conspiracy theories about him getting his music back and their worth is just to eery to MJ. If there is foul play here or anything but the death of a sick human being I will be unconsolable. Just the thought of them taking our Prince away for some money sickens me.

Don't listen to conspiracy theories please. I think we can be certain that no foul play has taken place here. Nobody killed Prince, Prince didn't kill himself.

As each day passes and more information gets released, it is starting to sound like Prince perhaps had an illness of some description for some period of time, possibly weeks or months prior to his passing, and something has happened as a result of this that resulted in Prince sadly leaving us.

We need to await the autopsy results and keep in mind that this is most likely a sad, unfortunate event in which nobody is to blame for.

As for the question of why Prince might have been at Paisley Park alone? He did own the place. He might have told his staff to go home, that he wanted to be alone. You just never know.
