Prince has died at age 57.

The pop star was found dead in his Paisley Park home in Minneapolis, Minn., his publicist confirmed to the Associated Press. 

Prince had been battling health issues causing the cancellation of two recent shows. On April 15, the singer had a medical emergency which caused his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. TMZ reported that the Grammy winner was sick with the flu during the emergency.

Since his 1978 debut album “For You”, Prince has released 39 solo albums earning him 32 Grammy nominations and seven Grammy awards. His 1985 album “Purple Rain” was listed as number two on Entertainment Weekly’s Greatest Albums list. He was straight but famously toyed with androgyny throughout his career.
