One of the most prominent names in pop music died last week (21st April). Of course, we are talking about Prince. But now the news of his health issues has shaken the world. According to the reliable sources, it is confirmed now that Prince was suffering from AIDS, and his health condition was not at all good. He was one of those talents who came not only to make easy money and success but enriched the music with all the way possible, integrating a wide variety of styles. From funk to rock, R&B, soul, psychedelia, and pop. The list is endless.
According to the American tabloids Prince was not doing well physically, he drastically lost weight and was about just 80lbs.
“Doctors told Prince his blood count was unusually low and that his body temperature had dropped dangerously below the normal 98.6 degrees to 94 degrees.”
“He was totally iron-deficient, very weak and often disoriented. He rarely ate and when he did, it all came right back up.
“His face was yellowish, the skin on his neck was hanging off and the tips of fingers were a brownish-yellow,”
Source told the National Enquirer that he was looking too exhausted, and thus they told him ‘We are praying for you’ only to hear a sad reply from the star
’’Maybe if you prayed for me a year ago it’d be different right now.”
Prince has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. The world has not forgotten to recognise his talent, and he was showered with awards and appreciation. Prince won seven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for the film Purple Rain. No doubt he is the 27th among the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
