Weird experience I just had

Hi everyone, I'm still grief stricken like everyone else here right now, but the strangest thing just happened to me.

It might just be my mind playing tricks on me, but I swear down I'm so confused by this.

I've been feeling particularly low today over P's death, couldn't make it into uni.

I decided to go for a nap which is what I often do when I get low. Anyways when I woke from the nap, I noticed that there was a small newspaper cutting stuck on the side of my wardrobe.

Honestly, it most probably is mind playing games to try to compensate for his passing but I really feel like I've never seen this before now:

Does anyone know which papers this has come from and when? I'm in the UK so it must be a UK paper.

On the back there was also an advertisement for a theatre show that started this April.

The comments underneath struck me as rather strange too- 'Continuing his knack for being the most brilliantly unpredictable artist on the planet.'

I have absolutely no idea where it came from. I asked everyone in my house and my boyfriend and they all said they had no idea. I do like to keep cut outs whenever I see him in the papers, but I just can't pinpoint where this came from.

Again, like I say probably just my head trying to make missing links but thought I would share with you all.

a few days before his passing a light in my bathroom kept going on and off for no reason i never had electrical problems here but my best friend died this past August 2015 and i believe it was him telling me 2 prepare mysef because he knew how much of a fan i am

when we met he was not a Prince fan but before he passed he was a Prince fan, he would even send me things of Prince playing his guitar he loved his guitar playing and loved the song Crimson and Clover,

when we were driving around one day he took my arm as that song was playing and used my arm as his guitar he couldn't get enough of that song but i do believe he was trying 2 let me know that something was about 2 happen

the light went back 2 normal early Thursday morning

i bet that there are more stories from other fans about preminitions and strange things that happened just before the death of our Prince, God it feels weird 2 say that - i don't like it

As long as we keep our luv strong we'll never shed no tears

at about 6:30AM (Central time: 4:30 Org time) April 7th: I was overcome with the feeling that Prince's health was bad. When checked the org I saw a topic that he had canceled the ALT shows do to the flu and i posted my feelings from 9 hours prior.

Then a few days later my honey asked me "Did you hear about Prince he was rushed to the hospital...!" and I had seen a bunch of posts about Prince on FB but I did not read any...so I freaked out and asked "What? When just now or a while ago is he ok?" and she snapped back "I don't know go look it up yourself!" (and I got a little miffed at her). So i look it up and by then he was home and "okay."

So i go talk to her and say "I'm sorry, but you know if something happened... i'd be..." and she said something like "yeah i know whatever..."

The day before his death I was feeling depressed and kept listening to GC Cameron's "It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday" from the Cooley High movie. From the scene where the one character is at the funeral of his best friend. I mentioned on Facebook, that song and "Sometimes it snows in April" always make me cry. Little did I know that the next day Prince would be gone.

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

I had a weird experience too. Bought ATWIAD on vinyl last Thursday, purely because I came across it in a second hand record shop.. The first vinyl record I have bought since I was a teenager.The first song I played on my new retro record player was Raspberry Berry.

Then when I checked my phone I had a text from my daughter.. telking me to check the news and that was when I discovered he was dead. It didn't reach me until the early evening here in the UK.

I just find it strange I should stumble across one of his records, then he dies. :(

Also it was snowing here in the south west last night. Hasn't snowed in April for years.

It snowed here in the North of England yesterday too. Lots of people were very confused in my uni, but I wasn't. :')

I forgot to also mention another rather odd thing that happened! Usually my normal bus doesn't carry the Metro newspaper. Its only very rare I see copies of it lying around, usually from people that have taken another bus or train that carries the newspaper and left it there.

Anyway, I was going to ask someone on my friends list to keep a copy for me as I'd seen Prince was going to be on the cover that Thursday night that he passed.

Anyway, I went out that Friday after into town and went to get on the bus I normally get, and what do I find stashed between the front two seats in my usual space on the bus? (I always sit in the same place if it's available: on the top floor three seats from the back on the left side).

Nothing other than the Metro and that days issue with Prince on the front.

Strange, but very comforting.

I also found it strange that on the day the news broke, I feel like something had prompted me to go home early. I should have been in class until like 5ish but had bad period pains and the computer I was on was having technical problems. So I decided to just go home after about 3. I'd of hated to of been in a classroom full of people crying my eyes out when I saw the news. But I feel like there was a reason I was 'sent' home early, and it was so I could mourn his passing in the comfort of my bedroom.

This is bizarre. I also went home early on Thursday. Normally I stay at work until 5.30-6, but it was such a beautiful day that I went home at 4.30. I was sitting in my garden and came to this site when I read the then unconfirmed rumours about paramedics visiting Paisley Park, then fatality at Paisley and then...
I'm actually relieved I found out like this. Had I read it as a notification on my phone it would have been so cold, so empty. And I don't want to think what would have happened if I had found out on the radio while driving back home...

Hi everyone I'm new here, I posted in another thread about being new but so far nobody has acknowledged me so I feel like I must repeat that I'm new in case you're wondering who I am.

This is gonna sound very crazy of me to say but I think I have some sort of psychic gift. Before Michael Jackson died I started listening to him and getting into his music, and the same thing happened to me with Whitney Houston. I've been a Prince fan for about 6 years though so I'm not a dumb teenager that just hopped on the Prince bandwagon now, but I swear to you things happen for a reason. I was on an "obsessed" fan level of P's when I was 11 but after 2 years I got tired of listening to him and watching videos of him so I slowly distanced myself away from him. I started getting into other music but I was never quite satisfied with how my music taste was going until a few months ago when Prince popped back in my life. I've been back into him more and more since then and so I've been spending my time thinking about him a lot lately. Then on April 21 I woke up to another seemingly normal and boring day of my life, except this strange thought kept popping into my head. No matter what I would do, whether it'd be chores, or watch TV, I could not stop thinking about this. My head kept telling me "The hypocrites are gonna come out now. Just like how David Bowie died earlier, when Prince dies, the hypocrites are gonna come out. Everybody's gonna come out and say that they loved him. He's gonna sell so much music and be greatly appreciated by people of all ages and place around the world now that he's gonna be dead."

...It was 2 or 3pm and I was home alone. Earlier that day I was texting with my guy friend and he sends me this message like "Oh Kat, have you heard about Prince? sad". He knows I'm a huge fan and he's somewhat of a fan himself because of me so it's natural for him to alert me of anything going on with Prince. With me getting distracted and not always focused I thought he was talking about how the week before P supposedly had an emergency landing and had to go to the hospital so I told him about that. After I finished doing dishes and thinking about those creepy and premonition like thoughts that I mentioned earlier, I went to go read my friend's reply and I was shocked at what he told me. I couldn't believe it. I started to freak out but my mind kept telling me that this is probably a hoax so I went online and that's when I saw every news outlet had the same breaking news. I screamed. I started feeling a strong heavyness in my heart and an unbearable knot in my throat. I cried for a few minutes and then I couldn't cry anymore. I don't know why but it's as if I still can't accept that he's not here anymore and I've been feeling numb since then. I literally feel as if he faked his death or something. I don't know. I feel pretty empty. But yeah, it still freaks me out that I got back into Prince months before he passed and then to get those creepy premonitions on the day that he died! I'm convinced I have a strong intuition or some sort of psyhic gift after how many times this has happened to me with artists and other people in my life as well.

How odd guys....

After I saw him in Feb 2016 (twice) I went into a bit of a depression with this stupid thought in my head of - "what if I never seen him again?"

Subsequently, my mind went to the "Prince will one day (in the future) die" thought.But I squashed those thoughts. It was also during this time that I had a dreadful dream of him passing away.

Just shows...everythig is inter-connected somehow...

I experienced this with MJ and with Prince too. With MJ I kept getting these weird invasive thoughts about someone not being able to see their kids grow up and a huge loss to showbiz. The weirdest most specific thoughts. With Prince, he was sort of on my radar after he toured Australia in February but about 2 weeks ago I randomly felt like putting some of his music back on my iTunes (I don't use it as storage I usually delete songs once I'm tired of them and only keep on what I'm currently listening to). I'd been listening to Purple Rain and Da Bang a lot and I started following him on Twitter. Just random things to "reconnect" I guess.
