What Happened to Prince?

369

Prince’s death was unexpected, shrouded in mystery and full of strange facts. In short, it was a typical Hollywood death. What happened and why?

Prince was the exact opposite of most pop stars of today: He was immensely talented, completely original, fully involved in artistic creation and extremely outspoken – especially against the music industry. More than being in a class of his own, he was in a world of his own, floating in a giant purple bubble while masterfully playing his guitar.

Prince was not merely a singer – he was a songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist, a record producer, and an actor. He was keenly aware of the workings of the music industry and often fought bitter battles to preserve the integrity of his work, his image, and his legacy.

While his enigmatic and eccentric persona never ceased to amaze his fans, the discovery of his lifeless body inside an elevator left the world with one final enigma: What happened? Before we look at this death, let’s look at his career.

Outspoken

Prince spent his entire career battling “record label tyranny” which lead to some memorable outbursts. In 1993, when a deal with Warner Brothers went south and left him without control of his work and without the advances he was promised, he orchestrated a rebellion that only Prince could think of. In a perplexing (and often ridiculed) move, Prince replaced his name with an unpronounceable symbol. People then had to refer to him as “The artist formerly known as Prince”.

The Love Symbol on the cover his 1993 album. Although he never explained the meaning of this symbol, it contains both the symbols for male and female (which goes with Prince's androgenous persona) crossed by a trumpet-like instrument (representing music).

Although Prince never fully explained the meaning of this symbol (other that it “came to him during meditation”), one can easily discern an amalgamation of the “male” and “female” symbols crossed by a trumpet-like instrument. It might be a visual representation of his androgynous musical persona.

Although this move was widely misunderstood by the public (and media), Prince clearly explained the rationale behind it.

The first step I have taken toward the ultimate goal of emancipation from the chains that bind me to Warner Bros. was to change my name from Prince to the Love Symbol. Prince is the name that my mother gave me at birth. Warner Bros. took the name, trademarked it, and used it as the main marketing tool to promote all of the music that I wrote. The company owns the name Prince and all related music marketed under Prince. I became merely a pawn used to produce more money for Warner Bros…

I was born Prince and did not want to adopt another conventional name. The only acceptable replacement for my name, and my identity, was the Love Symbol, a symbol with no pronunciation, that is a representation of me and what my music is about. This symbol is present in my work over the years; it is a concept that has evolved from my frustration; it is who I am. It is my name.

During his legal battle with Warner Brothers, Prince appeared in public with the word “SLAVE” scribbled on his cheek.

Prince also enjoyed speaking about unpopular issues such as chemtrails, religion, and morality. Here’s a 2009 interview where he speaks his mind.

Several years later, Prince was still going at it. In 2015, he compared artists to “indentured servants with little control over how their music is used”. In a rare interaction with media, Prince stated:

“Record contracts are just like — I’m gonna say the word – slavery. I would tell any young artist… don’t sign.”

Prince said those words in August 2015, in his Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis. Less than a year later, he was found dead at this very location.

Strange Circumstances Around His Death

As it is the case for most unexpected celebrity deaths, there is a lot of information, misinformation, rumors, gossip and conflicting reports floating around. Here’s a quick sum-up of his last days. At the time of writing this article, the cause of his death is unknown.

On April 7, 2016, Prince postponed two performances from his Piano & A Microphone Tour, at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta; the venue released a statement saying he was “battling the flu”. He rescheduled the show for April 14, even though he still was not feeling well. While flying back to Minneapolis early the next morning, his private jet made an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois, so that he could seek medical treatment. Representatives stated that he suffered from “bad dehydration” and had been fighting influenza for several weeks. Prince was seen in public the following evening, when he shopped at the Electric Fetus in Minneapolis on Record Store Day, and made a brief appearance at a dance party at his Paisley Park recording studio complex in Chanhassen, Minnesota, stating that he was feeling fine.

He attended a performance by singer Lizz Wright at the Dakota Jazz Club on April 19, 2016.

On April 21, 2016, Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park, which also served as his Minnesota home. A 9-1-1 call was placed at 9:43 a.m; he did not recover with CPR by emergency responders and was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. He was 57 years old.

Although reportedly “combating the flu”, Prince was active and healthy enough to attend concerts and perform a couple of shows. Things took a mysterious turn on April 15th, when his private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois – even if he was at about 40 minutes from his final destination.

According to some sources, Prince was treated for an overdose.

Multiple sources in Moline tell us, Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a “save shot” … typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.

Our sources further say doctors advised Prince to stay in the hospital for 24 hours. His people demanded a private room, and when they were told that wasn’t possible … Prince and co. decided to bail. The singer was released 3 hours after arriving and flew home.

We’re told when Prince left he “was not doing well.”

We know authorities in Minnesota are trying to get the hospital records from Moline to help determine cause of death.

We have made more than a dozen attempts to reach Prince’s reps for comment, but they went radio silent.
– TMZ, Treated For a Drug Overdose Days Before Death

Strangely enough, every time there’s a strange celebrity death, the word “overdose” is thrown around almost immediately.

The next day, Prince appeared at a concert and somewhat prophetically said:

“Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.”

The same day, a popular gossip website cryptically announced that a famous African-American celebrity had AIDS.

MediaTakeOut.com just received word that a VERY popular African-American celebrity – who has recently been in the news – now has what is being described as AIDS. Obviously since we are not able to 100% confirm the story – we’re going to leave it as a Blind Item. We want to make it clear we are NOT talking about Magic Johnson.

This report REALLY hurt our heart.

According to a person EXTREMELY CLOSE to the situation, the celebrity, who is known for having a very EXTREME sexual past reportedly contracted the illness sometime in the 1990s. He kept the illness quiet but began taking his medication RELIGIOUSLY up until about two years ago. Here’s what we’re told by a VERY trusted entertainment insider:

[The celebrity] believed that he was cured, and he had some crazy [religious] people who told him that God cured him. So he stopped taking his medication and the sickness came back. Now doctors say he’s dying, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.”

We’re told that the celebrity is expected to get sicker and sicker, and eventually pass. It can happen as soon as the summer.

A few days later, Prince was found inside an elevator in his studio.

Strange fact: One of Prince’s most famous songs is Let’s Go Crazy. Not unlike much of his writing, the lyrics of this song can be traced back to his Christian beliefs, where he uses the word the “de-elevator” to refer to the devil. He sings:

And if de-elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy – punch a higher floor

And later:

And when we do (When we do)
What’s it all for (What’s it all for)
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door

Tell me, are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down?
Oh, no let’s go!

In a morbidly symbolic setting, Prince’s body was found inside an elevator. Did the “de-elevator” finally bring him down?

Plenty of facts need to be checked and questions need to be answered. One thing is for sure: When things are shady, the truth often remains in the shade.

The wrestler, Chyna, also died within 24 hours of Prince. A masculine woman and a feminine man. Make of that what you will.

Unfortunately, often benefit from such treatment. Immediately after the David Bowie died Alan Rickman. Yes they consist of massive casualties. And that is really scary.

If the celebrities sign up and consent to it, it’s hard to feel empathy. They contribute to bringing this satanism to our doorsteps. If iI was approached and told I’d have to have sex with squirrels and worship a goat’s head, I’d turn and run. One has to wonder about the mindset of celebrities (and globalists).

They’re manipulated and abused into doing those things.

Well, we’re in the latter half of April. I didn’t know about Chyna until I read your post. Hm. According to what I read in the Findadeath forums, she was dead for a few days before she was found. I’m going to have to do some reading.

they’re saying accidental overdose. What breaks my heart is how a: the WWE shunned her and b: they’re pretty sure she died alone and no one bothered to check on her in those days before she was found. I still think she was untreated bipolar.

Perhaps to give more attention to the androgynou/trans agenda. Bowie was the same way.

I’d suppose that it has something to do with the name Chyna; the real China had better watch out.

Don’t be simple. men and women have more in common than you think. the idea that there are only two dividing lines is the result of simp thinking. The elite want you to hate or like something, but to understand something and know the difference between the right and wrong version is the key. the elite appropriate causes, especially those of social justice, or those that are trending to pit pro and con against each other. what about the fact that caitlyn jenner is a vapid, stupid, self loathing, person who has nothing in common with the common struggle of a working class trans, pushes socially conservative agendas against them? 50 shades of grey was loathed by the bdsm community for it’s breach of ethical boundaries, stalking, etc. but loved by suburban housewives everywhere? you may even hate certain genres of music, but would you appreciate them more if they were substantive and were true to their pre commercialized roots? All these puppets the power elite put forth to represent ALL communities are distorted, hateful, and ignorant versions of ourselves. Don’t believe the hype. Bill Clinton appointed Trump’s sister as a judge but you never hear that in the msm.… Read more »

David Bowie faked his death.

Julia Williams

Proof or GTFO. I’m pretty sure he didn’t. I’d be more inclined to think that Prince did. He was cremated so fast and autopsy results are coming in so slow and the family doing a quiet, VERY private service. You could easily fake it that way. Bowie had looked ill for a while. A lot of us wish it wasn’t true, but it is. He’s dead.

You have the same name as me, this was disconcerting to see lol

That’s what I’ve been thinking…his death was fake. I saw msn article the other week titled something like “Bowies fans can imagine he is still alive”. It was a suspicious use of words since it was only about some artwork on his last album cover. It seemed fake from the start.

I don’t think Princes death was fake. That was sad. Such an obvious murder.

She gave up the masculinity bit after she gave up the ‘roids. As much as she let her felinity return, she was still more masculine than most modern-American & -European men.

nah
nah

“felinity”? Were you trying to say femininity or were you suggesting she was subject to “beta kitten” programming? Because she didn’t seem the type, at all.

I think you meant “femininity”.

Well after adding up a few numbers, I came to the conclusion ( could be could not) that 7 was the number used that day for these two blood sacrifices. 7 which sounds a lot like 11 the number of death symbolically focuses on the “Worship of woman” or “worship of female energy”, which as we all know Prince had a lot of. The same can be said about Chyna, she did not have female energy, thus the counterpart of Prince. This number also symbolizes “The Perfect Death”, as in, death of wisdom and loss of control. This implies that the masses are blind, and have no control over what they see and hear. Deception. Another death being flaunted in the blinded eyes of the masses.

I could go on but I think you get get where I am going with this. Everything has an occult meaning to these people and it’s always about a secret message. I am curious to know if there is any truth to the rumors of his fortune being left to his sister. This would be the ultimate F U from Prince to the evil people of the industry.

Well, it is interesting that Beyonce had a special on HBO which pretty much became the talk of the music town and is about the worship of women. I’m surprised VC hasn’t written about it yet.

“All 7 and we’ll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love
And we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir-faire
No one in the whole universe
Will ever compare
I am yours now and u are mine
And together we’ll love through
All space and time, so don’t cry
One day all 7 will die”

—–Prince “7”

Due to his obsessive need to pull all his work off the internet, I’ve yet to find a clear copy of this song. Also from the moment I heard it on the radio, I knew all the words, like I had heard it sung by someone else, I was never able to track down who, or when. They were just ‘there’ in my head

the timing, the lyrics, the whole thing, and I never owned the album it was on. I have no idea why or from where they came

Not really, because they’ll put the screws on her and threaten to kill her too if she doesn’t sign over his songs.

She looks more like she needs rehab than she does his estate. And her greed grab was SUPER fast. people are saying that he did have a will and that she’s trying to beat his attorneys to producing it. Whole thing was ugly to read on her end.

A real death is announced before the fake death. Farrah Fawcett died on the same day as Michael Jackson. She had cancer and her death was real. It was announced before Michael’s fake death.

If that’s true, then Chyna is really dead but Prince isn’t. I heard about Chyna’s death on the news before I heard about Prince’s.
