“It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57,” the rep said in a statement. “There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time.”Reports earlier in the week found Prince’s plane making an emergency landing in Indiana where he was treated and released at a local hospital. TMZ reports that a Prince representative had confirmed that the singer was feeling under the weather during his shows last week. Prince was a noted singer-songwriter from a young age and reached stardom in his teens with such top 10 singles as “Little Red Corvette”, “Purple Rain”, “Delirious”, “1999”, “When Doves Cry”, “Let’s Go Crazy” and many more. A very private and local person, Prince was born in Minneapolis and continued to live there until he was found in his residence Thursday morning.
