Too late.

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"

The day before I was sitting on my floor watching Purple Rain. The abusrd thuoght came to mind about what I would do when Prince died. I laughed it off saying I'd wear purple for the day. And the next day I wore purple.

Im a new member and tho ive been a fan since the early 80s, i didnt really keep up wuth him after the mid 90s..But ive always thought he was brilliant and sexy n funny..I was shocked at the depth of my grief over his passing sad .
Anyway, after the plane incident he seemed to make a great effort to prove he was ok afterward but a little voice in my head told me that it was bs...and then he died almost a week later. Unfortunately i was right bawl

Yes, I was worried after I saw him in Sydney. He wasn't acting his usual self, felt like he was saying good bye and was so appreciative to our clapping/cheering. Once I heard that he was releasing a bio I started to get really worried, felt like he was doing many things that were out of character. I told my brother who is also a fan and he said he thought the same thing after seeing him. Of course I didn't want it to come true, like some others have stated. I felt like he knew.

I thought that after Victoria Wood but it was "why do I get this feeling Prince might be next...." Eurgh! 2016 sucks, so many taken from us!!!

I think that many of us felt uncomfortable where Prince was concerned after the emergency plane landing.

Yes, when I saw him present on the Grammy's last year. My heart sunk a little as he looked unusually thin and slightly haggard. He was so damn driven. I hope his drive didn't kill him sad

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.

oh yes I got in a bit of a row over that. Someone tells me "Did you hear Prince was rushed to the hospital?" and I freaked out a little and she was all "Don't ask me go Google it yourself" and I told her after i read up on the matter how I would not take it well if something bad happened to him.

Come on people Prince looked great. Let's be real If he was sick someone would have leaked it to TMZ. These threads are ridiculous. His death was sudden, no two ways about it.

I think with MJs sudden passing it brought the reality of it into spotlight. Prior to that I don't think most really thought about it.

When I heard about the emergency plane landing, I was a little concerned that it had to be very serious. They don't bring a plane down becuase someone is upchucking or feels bad. When I heard that he threw a party at Paisley Park the next day, I was concerned that he was not getting proper rest and not taking care of himself. I had an uneasy feeling about him that week. When I heard that he had died, I was not that surprised, and shocked at the same time. The shock came from both his death and having confirmation that my feelings were correct.

The thought was there after the airplane emergency landing but had NO idea he would be gone so soon. I also thought he still looked good for 57 almost 58.
Just can't seem to get over the sadness of the world without Prince. .. Will never be the same again.

Same. I instantly was like - uh oh. This can't be good. I mean, when have you ever heard of such a thing with him? It seemed like a bad sign. But I didn't dwell on it consciously. Then when the news came through it re-confirmed everything I had felt on a gut level after the plane landing.

The shows were just him and a piano. The sets were meant to be intimate, and he has used that format before (him and a giutar, ) during the musicoolgy tour. I have heard this good bye theory on many threads on prince.org it is really starting to make me think that some people are looking fior something to blame his death on. Trying to reason about such a thing is like beating your head on a brick wall.

During the Lovesexy Tour Prince talked about Loving God and no one thought he was dying or ill. Most of us saw a man who believed in God and he openly said it during shows.

I think he was doing the Piano and Mircophone for himself, they were not about him saying goodbye, they were simply him sitting at a piano, practising his craft, trying something a little different. I woiuld think that Prince was reacting to the crowd because of the intimate nature of the shows. Nothing more. He clearly did not know he was doing to die.

No premonitions nor gut feelings...but like others have already said, I definitely had a sense of foreboding upon hearing about the emergency plane landing. It's been a nightmare since cry

The day before he died i had the urge to explore the internet to find any and every interview he had done and what music videos may be left, which unlike today as you all know was not a lot.

I just wanted to hear him talk.

I did this for a few hours :/

With all of these notable artists dying at the beginning of the year, it's as if we all had this collective worry that something was going to happen to Prince. That collective feeling was especially strong when David Bowie died because for many, he was their own Prince. So I think as a whole we all had this huge worry, but it wasn't necessarily a premonition.

The song, Way Back Home and the intro track started the weird feeling for me, but after the private jet story was when it became stronger.

Magic does exist. Witches are real. Ghosts are real. Premonitions are very much real. There is a spiritual realm that is covered by a metaphysical veil. Ufos are a crock of shit. I understand that everyone needs a healthy degree of skepticism but please be open to some things that the universe brings.

Yea, maybe your right. Reading too much into it, was a completely different setting to how I have seen him before.

Well,it seems the universe brings a load of crap. Did you have a premonition I was going to say that?

honestly yes.

Ive been a fan since age 11 in 1981 with the Controversy album.

Over the years, I've had dreams of Prince maybe twice a year or so.. always just of talking with him, hanging out, being on stage dancing, backstage, telling jokes like he was my bestie.

(I never liked him the way lots of women do- I always admired his talent, genius, and incredible style- the coolest person to ever walk the earth!)

Anyway, about two months ago i saw a picture of him on instagram (an older pic) and this voice said in my head "hes going to die soon"

I got upset with this thought- arguing with it- come on his dad lived to be pretty old..Prince is healthy aside from chronic pain, hes fine. He will live to be an old man!

A month after that, same voice.

And again, 2 days before he died.... same thing.

My mom even remembers me telling her about this voice two months ago.

When I got the call from her that he died (I just moved to NYC and dont have cable TV hooked up), I lost it. Because not only do I feel like I lost a friend, I was spooked out that the premonition I had was real.

Why did I know that?????? It bothers me.

sigh sad

don't feel bad, happens to me all the time, usually much stronger than it did with Prince with other celebs. It won't even be that they are going to die, it'll be just that they'll cross my mind after me not thinking about them for awhile.

the closed eyes bothered me. i reasoned that he was meditating, that would be cool. any image of prince with closed eyes has been unsettling to me for the past few years. The first i recall was seeing Kandace Spring's beautiful drawing of Prince's face, but i wanted the eyes to be open. It's just always felt rude to me to even suggest anything about anyone passing really, though neutral i had dreams in the past few months that may have been telling me things in a kind way.

i remember looking on the org on the evening of april 20, searching old threads that i was recalling, chuckling that this or that screen name might have been prince. then when i woke on 4/21, i started just crying around 5am and wondering why was i crying.

but then this past sunday, pentecost, i had an increasingly strong feeling that everything important to me about Prince is alive smile whatever that means wink
