Did anyone have premanitions or gut feelings prior to Prince's death?

Ok I am in no way psychic and honestly actually I have always had trouble trusting my gut feelings and argued with my intuition. I was wondering if anyone had any werid feelings or ominous, strange thoughts around Prince before he passed away?

I haven't thought of Prince in a few years....I was a huge fan when I was younger and in the 2000s...then life took over and I stopped listening to his music as much...I think the last time I saw him live was at Paisley Park with my sister in 2009 or 2010...

...But anyway last winter I can't remember why but Prince popped in my head, I think I was putting make up on in my bathroom...and I was just thinking like ...I wonder what he is up to...I wonder what his new music is like...I wonder how much longer he will be here making music.... is he going to live to his 70s and 80s will he still be preforming?...maybe I should check out his new tunes.....

...now I can't remember if Vanity's death happened yet and it got me thinking about Prince and how much longer we will have to enjoy him here on earth or if it was prior to that....I felt very sad about Vanity passing away too...she seemed to have had a very difficult life...as well as a lot of health problems and I remember thinking I hope she has no more pain...

...Prince's death was way more of a shock to me....I didn't see that coming at all and despite not following him recently, I really miss him....I am still in the process of grieving his death...

I had an uncomfortable feeling when Vanity died in Feb, how it was gonna affect Prince, espeically when he was so candid towards her during his shows in Melbourne (he doesn't open up like that). When I saw him in at the Sydney Opera house, it put my mind at ease, that he was ok and has just grieving for her.

Also that private plane landing in Chicago got me worried, but when they said by his people it was just the flu and Appollina contacted him and said everything was ok (its now been deleted from her FB/Twitter) again my mind was at ease. On the 21 April it shocked me to the core and its still so surreal to me that he is gone cry

I know. The world just seems less magical. I actually feel sadder about his passing now than at the time. I think I was kinda in shock and felt unprepared for the level of grief I felt considering that I haven't been keeping close tabs on him but still loved him (he has ALWAYS been my favorite artist since childhood in the 80s)Now that all the hoopla has died down a bit I actually feel sadder...I think I felt more numb last month.

My son and I went to Paisley Park the next day after his passing, I left a card and flowers. I am smiling in the pictures but I wasn't happy ...I guess I was just smiling remebering the Prince energy and vibe and all the good feeling memories coming back to me by being a Paisley....I just miss him...He had the best music, the best preformances, the best videos...he was just the best...

I felt Prince was going to pass this year. I got receipts to prove it also. I told my sis and a couple of Prince fams too.(Jan to March I had the feelings) Idk, i didnt think he looked well either. Plus, i had a strange, eerie feeling that Prince was next after Denise passed away coupled with Kim Upsher earlier this year. In March, I started reading Prince stuff like a man on a mission. I felt it in my heart and soul. I had stopped getting princes music in 2007. Suddenly, I was playing his videos again.. There were a lot of strange things adding up... The Piano tour was a huge sign to me, it was like he had come full circle.

I've mentioned it a couple times since i've been back on the org. A few years ago, we were discussing Prince's rumored pill use, one of the posters said they had a gut feeling that he wouldn't live past 57, we all jumped all over this person because the idea was unthinkable. I've been trying to find that thread since with no luck.

As for me, yes I did have mild premonitions, Way Back Home was a big one, i thought "uh oh, he's singing his death song" . "death songs" are my term that i've given to artists who sing about the end right before it comes, as if they are aware of it. Sam Cooke/Change is Gonna Come, Elvis/Way Down, Buddy Holly/Doesn't Matter Anymore, Johnny Cash/Hurt. So, yes, i worried a little but I was in denial, i also had the same ideas come up when he was speaking in his piano and microphone concerts. It was so uncharacteristic for him to be open, to me, it was like resignation. I guess, long story short, I didn't want to believe he was going for my own selfish reasons and he always gave plenty of reasons to make any idea of that ridiculous. I doubted my intuition. Not like there was much I could do about it either way. Even if I were to show up at Paisley, ready to blow the whistle, I'd have just been another loon hanging out at his crib.

the "full circle" thing is another that i've mentioned, his sporting the afro and keeping it for longer than he did any other single look and also his piano tour, his first instrument was the piano, and the way he spoke, going back to his childhood and how his dad would make him marvel with how he played. Lamar Fike, Elvis' bodyguard, said he got an eerie feeling when he saw elvis all the sudden start to eat the simple country foods he had when he was a child. Here he was, could have had anything and all he wanted was the stuff of his boyhood he had "gone full circle" too.

Sitting front row at the Sydney opera house show, I recall thinking to myself when he came out, that he looked unwell, something def was wrong, but yeah I had bad feelings.

Was almost like it was a farewell tour in many ways.

Wow, I too thought of Prince randomly recently after a few years of not being into him. It must've been around December too. It wasn't until March that I started getting back into him. I've said this now numerous times on here, I'll say it again. My subconcious knew Prince was gonna die. The thought would constantly pop into my head and then when I heard he did a tribute to David Bowie that's when the premonitions started to get worse. Then I read about the emergency plane landing, that's when I started to feel dread. I thought to myself "this is the end". And it was sad

The first show at SOH when he was late coming out and he missed quite a few lyrics the question definitely crossed my mind "is he on something" but he finished that show strong and the second show he was fine. I had a feeling it would be the last time he'd perform in Australia and probably the last time I'd see him.
After the plane emergency I did make myself upset thinking "what if.." but thought "no, you're silly, that won't happen for 20 years at least." A couple of days later bawl

I think I mentioned before I had a dream Prince had passed away. This was back earlier in the year and it coincidenced with David Bowie's passing so I thought it was about David. I don't know if you could say I'm psychic but I have had premonitions before and bad feelings about things so when I had the dream I checked online and on here and I was like phew false alarm at the time because it really shook me up. I didn't have a premonition before Prince passed this time but when I first heard about them finding somebody at Paisley I instantly thought it was Prince and sadly i was correct sad

Yes, 2 days beforehand, I was thinking to myself, imagine if Prince died,it'd be terrible, don't know why that thought came into my head but there you go, thing is, of course I never mentioned it to anyone for future validation. I have some very vivid dreams but none actually predictions, I'm glad you started this thread as I was going to.

I cant help feeling that the afro has something to do with all this. But I cant for the life of me think what it could be. Maybe it was a wig at some point during those years? Maybe he had hair loss from chemo? Ah! I dunno.....

No premonitions. But I had a gut feeling that the airplane incident wasn't a good sign about the state of his health.

My mother in law asked me how Prince was because she's heard about the emergency plane landing. Ten minutes later we saw on the TV news that he was dead. Maybe she felt it? Or maybe, it was just a weird co-incidence.

RIP sad

Yes.

No one will believe it, I suppose, but I can remember saying to my mother in 2003 that I felt I had to see him (in Australia) when the chance presented itself because, I said, "he might not come out again for another 14 years - he might not ever come out again - he might die when he's" - and here I said some age in the late fifties. I thought (if anything) he'd die in a car crash in France.

It certainly hasn't surprised me that he died prematurely; that seems to be the way with the Mozarts of this world.

When I started buying all those concert and aftershow tickets in 2007, my plan was to make the most of him whilst I still could, just in case... So glad I did. From then, the possibility that he would go at a relatively young age did cross my mind but I tried not to focus on that thought too much. It wasn't a real premonition but this had been on and off in the back of my mind ever since 2007, because I knew that it would be one of the worst thing for me to face. So I was kind of preparing myself but it was still a massive shock to the system when I heard the news. Also he was very present in my dreams (very obscure dreams) and I dreamt of him at least once a week since I had met him. For some reason they were always sad dreams where he was alone in a room and I was trying to reach him but couldn't because the door was locked.


I haven't had a single dream about Prince since he has passed away. sad

I have been wondering whether Prince's love for the studio had waned over the past couple of years or so. His last 4 albums were a mixed bag of old songs and songs produced by Josh. PE was actually completed long before it ws finally released, AOA certainly had some old songs on it such as the Andy Allo duets and FNR was just a Josh remix from PE. HNR 1 was a Josh production and who knows how old the songs are on that, he hardly sings on some of the songs. HNR 2 was mainly old songs going back a few years or more. I think Baltimore was probably the newest song on that album. We also had the four year gap without an album. It just seems to me that Prince wasnt really releasing very much new studio work in the past few years and the last real surge of new music was during the early days of 3rdEyeGirl and the internet releases. Even then, a lot of that was jam sessions and rehearsals.

I just wonder if the signs were there and we were blind to them because music was still being released and he was touring away. Maybe we attributed his lack of distribution and promotion to Prince's poor business acument when really he just didnt have the drive. Prince was so hands on with every aspect of his career from marketing to setting up distribution deals, that if indeed all was not well with him, it wouldnt be long before things started grinding to a halt. First the business side of things starts to suffer and marketing and distribution deals fall away, then the creativity in the studio starts to wane, then the live act gets parred down so as to enable him to be seated for much of the concert. I cant help but think that the signs were there right in front of us. Prince would have hated it if that is what was happening, his whole world would have felt like it was being torn apart.

I believe in the existence of spirits. I read my horoscope religiously. I am subbed to a bunch of psychics on youtube. Even though i am spiritual to the point of extremes, i did not see this passing coming at all. There were no gut feelings. There were no premonitions. One psychic that i usually watch on youtube had predicted that a famous musician would die but she said it would be Bob Dylan. I had heard about the emergency landing but did not think much about it cause Prince was barely on my radar these last few years. That man and his attitude toward youtube rubbed me raw for a while but i digress. The only strange thing that happened to me in the weeks before Prince's passing which inadverently was that i found a video. I was doing my morning routine and something just told me to go find the mustang mix of TMBGITW. I ended up finding the actual music video for it and I was like"wtf! No way would Prince let this be seen!" So I guess that was my way of knowing something was wrong cause the rare videos almost never see the light of day.

I've posted before on another thread similar to this one, but I did have a very vivid dream one night that I was at his funeral. This was just after he posted about having flu but before the plane landing.

I woke up and I'd been crying in my sleep. I was so disturbed by the dream that I got up to check up on him on Twitter. (I'd gone from being an occasional user on Twitter to checking his account practically daily since Jan this year).

There's a +six hour time difference to where I live but I could tell from the thread he'd been online and he'd been tweeting and deleting. I was relieved he was ok but this "something's not right" feeling didn't go away.

Two or three days before the news broke I was really edgy, I couldn't settle at all. I put it down to an impending hospital procedure I was due to have. Normally when I'm anxious I play Prince's music. I've been playing his music every day for months and months - way more than normal. My husband even asked if I was ever going to play anyone else's music and at any point!! Errrr NOPE!

But for those two days prior to the 21st I couldn't listen to his music and I didn't go on Twitter AT ALL! When I went back on, on the 21st the first thing that popped up in my timeline was the news about sheriffs investivating at PP. This was before any info had come out about a death.

I already knew in my heart he'd gone before it was officially confirmed.

Were they premonitions? I honestly don't know! I'm a level-headed, grown-up woman and quite skeptical about a lot of things. But that really threw me, I've never experienced anything like that before......

All I know is the night before he passed I was discussing the shocking amount of famous people dying in 2016 and asking 'Who's next?'

In my head I said to myself 'I hope it's not Madonna or Prince!' but didn't say it out loud to tempt fate.

Too late.

I think the combination of signs from working on his memoir, to the afro, to the solo piano shows, to appearing rail thin had me subconsciously worried he was close to the end. confused

I am also starting to think the hair was a way of hiding his face / appearance and perhaps there was chemo at some point in last few months / years...

Since I was small, I was one of those to get sixth senses type feelings. It comes and goes but if I am stressed or overly busy, it wanes. I know to myself over the past while, esp in a photo he is wearing orange, I though he didn't look well but chalked it up to being tired, or simply aging. We all get old. Anyway, I was 'busy' around the time of the emergency plane landing...and frankly didn't hear about it right away. My aunt emailed me and asked if I'd heard...

My first thought was 'some tabloid ridiculousness' or if it were true..maybe he had seiuzre or something on the plane. In eany event I wasn't worrying about it bc I thought all ok and I was busy...It wasn't until the next day I was on facebook and saw some news blurb. I didn't read it....but saw the headline.

I vivdly remember thinking'I think something is going to happen to him. I really hope he gets that book out to set some records straight.' I ignored my thought for a day or 2. Didn't keep up with any of the "I'm fine, pray for me, etc" type things. However, the thought of him being gone was extremely strong in my head, and it kept creeping in... it started to bug me...But, I just blamed the news for guiding my thoughts.

I was getting ready for an event for my child, and my parents /husban came in and told me the news.I was shocked...but not if that makes sense. I mentioned this on another thread, but I was searching for a sweater for this event. I tore my room apart, and reorganized it. As I was leaving, I saw a shirt on the floor (something I don't wear often, I take care of it). Depsite rushing, I had to pick up the shirt. It was a Prince Concert shirt....and I was thiking 'why is that there?". Five minutes later is when I found out he died. It was all unsettling to me...things like this always happen to me...but it never happened regarding a death. My husband to this day jokes that he weas touching base with me as he left this world.

I think since ever since the Atlanta shows were postponed (someone asked in a thread at the time if anyone could remember Prince ever cancelling a show cos of illness) I think I'd been uneasy.

Then obviously the plane landing was a shock, and the ambiguous "wait a few days before you waste your prayers" comment wasn't as reassuring as he probably meant it to be.

So yeah, not a premonition, but I think unconsciously I was already pretty worried.

When (British comedian) Victoria Wood died on the 20th April I was talking with some friends about the number of celebrities who'd died and I did actually say "God, I hope Prince doesn't die..." - I think sort of thinking "if i say it out loud it'll never happen"
