Here's What Celebs & Musicians Are Saying About Prince's Death
Celebrities and musicians around the world are reacting to the shocking news that singer-songwriter Prince has died at age 57.
His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, confirmed the legendary musician was found dead at his home in Chanhassen, Minn., on Thursday.
"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. There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time," Noel-Schure said in an official statement.
Fox Business Network host Kennedy, a former MTV host, remembered the music icon on Happening Now, saying the loss will "reverberate for quite some time."
She said no one could ever put Prince in a "box" in terms of his unique musical style. Kennedy noted that he was an "amazing guitarist" as well.
