Celebrity Tributes to Prince

I've need collecting celebrity tributes to Prince. I have s pretty exhaustive list I'd like to share. If anyone comes across others feel free to add them to this thread. #PrinceForever💜

Justin Timberlake (
It was Raspberry Beret. I was 4 years old. Yes, 4. I remember that I instantly loved it. "Mommy, who is that singing?" Seems weird but it's true. More than a "once in a lifetime" artist... Just a ONCE IN FOREVER ARTIST. I'm still in shock as I write this and I feel this overwhelming grief. But, we should all turn away from that and HONOR this musician that changed all of our lives, our perspectives, our feeling, our whole being. From another planet? Probably. Royalty, for sure. Us worthy..? Laughable. They say don't meet your idols... That they let you down. But, some of my greatest, funniest (yes, he was hilarious), and most prolific encounters and conversations about music came from the moments that I spent with him. It would be silly to say that he has inspired our music... It's beyond that. He's somewhere within every song I've ever written. I am sad, but I will smile when I think of every second that I had the fortune of being in his company. We have lost our greatest living musician. But his music will never die. Prince, NOTHING COMPARES...

Elton John (
"This is truly devastating news. The greatest performer I have ever seen. A true genius... Rest in peace you purple warrior." #Prince #RIP

Josh Groban (
Woke up to the atrocious news. Prince was a modern Mozart. Watched him play any song that came to mind for 4 hours straight once. Damn.

Bruno Mars (
Prince you're one of my Heroes and no one can tell me otherwise, not even you. I'm so fortunate to have witnessed your greatness. Your music will live on forever and ever and will always have a special place in my heart. Thank You.

Lionel Richie (
I can’t believe it, I’m in total shock. So many wonderful memories,
I will miss him. #Prince

CeeLo Green (
I want to be delicate to not disturb Our Prince's peace and eternal rest. I find myself being afraid now feeling alone in the world without him, for I believe that he was dealing directly with the Creator on our behalf. Ushering us a little closer towards salvation with each song. What I will miss most is that mediation with Our Master. His confidence in doing so is the evidence that his even greater talent was the ability to listen to the spirit and share shamelessly, unselfishly, and with so much style. He is now and forever immortalized as a noun, as I have often referred to him. Undoubtedly a person, a very special place, and absolutely EVERYTHING.

Robert Trujillo (
Still shocked. One of the most talented artists ever. He made the world a funkier place. #RIPPrince

Paul McCartney (
Saddened by Prince's death. Proud to have seen in the New Year with him. He seemed fine and played brilliantly funky music.

Padma Lakshmi (
I just heard the tragic news that my favorite and the most influential artist of all time just died. I am so saddened and shocked. Devastated. I always thought I would see him again soon and often. I can't believe he has been taken from the world. I had the gift of seeing him not only live but playing for me at arms length. He was generous, funny and kind. He was one of a kind, and there is no one like him. Along with Michael Jackson he literally wrote the soundtrack to my adolescence. I love you so much my God of music, and I hope you are at peace in the heavens somewhere. My heart is broken today. I can't believe I will never see you again. #Prince you will always be my favorite musician and performer of all time. My condolences go out to his family and band.

Andrew Carmellini (
If you haven't seen the video of Prince jamming with 3rdeyegirl from Paisley Park that came out last year than you haven't seen him at his best. He just rips it and showed he still crushed #rip

Sad beyond words that Prince is gone. To me he was one of the greatest music heroes - a true genius. There will never be another Prince.

Carmen Electra
"I was so shocked and heart broken to hear about the loss of my mentor, Prince. The world has lost a truly incredible spirit and musical genius. What a blessing it is to be one of the chosen ones who had the chance to work so closely with him. He gave me my name, he believed in me, and he has inspired an entire generation. I will always love him…. “Sometimes it Snows in April."

Clive Davis
Prince was peerless as a musician, performer and songwriter. He was clearly one of the all-time greats, always mesmerizing, magical and cutting edge. He was one-of-a-kind in every respect. To know Prince personally was to know someone kind and gentle, phenomenally brilliant and intellectually curious, with every bone in his body loving music. The world of music has tragically lost one of its greatest defining members.

Donatella Versace (
"I am crying. All my memories are coming back to me. He was one of my closest friends. I will always remember when he rented a club, only for him and me. We listened to his music and spoke about the young generation. The young people were so important to Prince. They have to follow the example he set, to believe in their heart, respect their own soul and never trade their own individuality. It is what made Prince outstanding and relevant forever. I will always love him."

Patti LaBelle
"I am deeply saddened by Prince's untimely passing. Not only was he a dear friend to me, but an inspiration. His talent, artistry and influence are unparalleled and there will never be another like Prince! The world has suffered a great loss! May he rest in everlasting peace."

Slash (

Throughout the years, and all of my crises, Prince was always there for me. During my bankruptcy he asked me to go on the road with him. When I made the decision to retire he called me and told me that I had a gift and that I could not stop now. He was like my big brother, always looking out for me. No other artist has meant as much to me as he did. He was always there for me giving me his support. I will miss him so much. He was as special of a friend as he was a brilliant talent. My condolences to his family. Good night, sweet Prince.

Candy Dulfer (
Dear all,
yesterday was a surreal day.
Like all of you I was just not ready to say goodbye to this guy.
His music was the soundtrack to my life and by inviting me into his he shaped a big part of the path I have gone on since.
He believed in me before I believed in myself and for that I'm forever grateful!!
I feel so lucky to have been around him and his creative force and all these amazing people he surrounded himself with, I wish for everyone to enjoy his music for eternity, there is so much, he left us enough for centuries!
Much love to all!!
P.s. I have chosen to not be a part of any tv, -radioprograms and current tributes.
It just doesn't feel right and I like to honour him just by playing my a** off. That's what he taught me, and it's what I think he would have wanted...

9 days ago, one of the most brilliant composers that ever lived passed away. 
Prince is and will always be my musical hero.
It would have been enough to just enjoy his music as a fan, but by some bizarre stroke of luck I got to spend years with him on the road and in the studio.
Since he died, so many people have sent me messages to comfort me and express their pain and I would just like to thank everybody so much!
I thought I had an idea of how loved he was, but I think I still underestimated it!
He will never be forgotten, and of course I have a lot of stories to tell, some hilarious, some incredible, some plain human, and ofcourse I would like to share them, and who knows I might do that here and there, because just like all of you I was and remain intrigued by this guy and I do understand about the need to see the human side of him.
I just felt I would like to tell them on my own terms and not because some newspaper needs copy or some tv program needs their ratings to stay up.
I bit my tongue real hard, which is nothing like me.
My friends will tell you I'm the worst secret keeper in human history.
But I'm glad I did. And anyway, his music should be enough for us to talk about. 
Forget about all those conspiracy theories and sensational stories.
Leave it and play your favourite Prince song.
That's all that matters. Love you all

Andy Allo (
Hi Prince,
I believe we all come into people's lives for a reason. You came into mine 5 years ago and each day we spent together talking, traveling and playing music, the more I learned about myself. You taught me how to love so deeply with no inhibitions, but you also taught me about heartbreak. You taught me how to push myself beyond my own limits, how to be strong, how to fight but also how to be vulnerable and be present. You are a mentor, a friend and much much more. We shared a great love, a great many laughs and tears. I wish I had told you more, what you meant to me.
I am so grateful I had the honor of knowing you, the man and the artist.
I am the woman and the artist I am today because of you. I love you and miss you.
Ps. I'd give anything to beat you at ping-pong one more time. Just kidding - I'd let you win.

Ida Nielsen (
Thursday the earth made a hiccup and left us all a little bit poorer.
I don’t know how to begin to describe the magnitude of this loss and I still have a hard time grasping what has happened.
It has been some very difficult days -for me and I know for so many people with me.
An icon a legend and a genius without compare is now gone. 
A man who loved, lived and WAS music.
But also a deeply caring man with a tremendously big heart and generosity for the people around him and a great concern for the injustice on this earth.
A beautiful soul and a man who wanted to make the world a better place -who gathered people of all ethnicities and nationalities with his message of love.
It has been such an honor and privilige to have been close to this greatness and I will forever cherish the beautiful moments we shared.
I have lost a dear friend, a Mentor, a big brother, ping pong buddy, a teacher, a laughing partner and caretaker. And my number one musical influence and inspiration ever!
And we all have lost the personification of music and love -and a special frequency is now missing here on earth.
Prince, I love you and will miss you deeply and with me millions of people around this planet. 
You changed my life and made my biggest dream come true and I will always cary you with me in my heart. 
You may not be with us physically any more but your beautiful spirit and your music will always be here with us 
and continue to shine on and outlive us all.
I am so thankful to have had you in my life and I will move on in honor of your genius legacy.
With my deepest love -always

I want to thank everybody for their sweet and heart felt messages.
It means a lot to feel the love you all had for him.
Love 4oneanother

Hannah Welton FanPage (
There are so many things to be said...too much to try to compile in one message...The past four years of our life has been a whirlwind. So much traveling, so much performing, so many rehearsals, hundreds and hundreds of songs, hours and hours of stage time with the most incredible band I've ever been a part of in my life, but that's not even the best part of it all. God used Prince in such a mighty way in mine and Joshua's life. When we met him as a newlywed couple (both of us 22 at the time), he was so respectful, reverent, and supportive of our relationship. He loved love. As newlyweds, walking into this HUGE opportunity, we weren't sure at first how he was going to handle us. (Let's face it, we've all heard crazy stories). But that's just it. Those stories are just stories. The very first thing he said to us after meeting was "I can't separate you two." That was confirmation for Joshua and I that the journey we were about to embark on was divine appointment. After that meeting it was full speed ahead. 3RDEYEGIRL started, relationships were built, and memories were made. Prince quickly became more than just "the artist" to us. He wasn't our "boss." In fact, he didn't like it when people called him that. He was our GREAT friend. Our mentor. Our confidant. Our brother. And even became somewhat like a protective, father figure over us. So many conversations were had about God, life and love, about the future and raising kids together, about how to make a lasting impact that MEANS something and unite humanity in the way God intended us to be from the very beginning. Sure, the music was great. But it wasn't everything. It was only a very, VERY small side of who this man was. Joshua and I are so blessed to have been as close to him as we were the past 4 years and all the music and touring in the world could never compare to the time spent with our brother. Though a physical presence has been lost in the natural, his spirit lives on through all the lives he touched. We celebrate the incredible life that he lived, the irreplaceable mark he made, and the millions of lives changed for the better because he was here for 57 short years. Thank you Prince...for being all that you are. Thank you for loving my husband and I as your own, and for making sure we knew just how much you loved us. Thank you for believing in us, thank you for pouring into Joshua and sharing all that you did with him. Your friendship will be cherished forever. We will make sure baby girl knows just how amazing her Uncle Prince was to us, and countless others, and how excited you were for her precious life. From the bottom of my heart...Thank you.
💜💜 Your legacy lives on...

Donna Grantis (
I am so thankful for all of the experiences I have shared in over the past three and a half years. It has been profoundly life-changing, transformative and beyond my wildest dreams. I feel so lucky to have lived through all of it with the closest of friends. At the center of it all, was Prince: the greatest musician of all time, the most phenomenal guitar player on the planet, my mentor, bandmate and friend.
He taught us about music, artistry, life, love, greatness, conviction, community and spirituality. He brought out the best in all of us. Together, not only as a band, but as a family, we lived life to the fullest, travelled the world together, made amazing music and had the best of times talking, laughing, dancing, and working towards a common goal. I will always cherish every moment, both onstage and off.
Thank you to everyone who reached out with words of love and support. We will forever celebrate Prince’s life and legacy. A creative genius, innovator and inspiration, the positive impact he has had on the lives of millions – both on a personal level and through song – is astounding. What a gift he has left us. The power of music unites us all.
Much Love

Hey yal🙏🏾
I've been quiet cuz I needed Time.
But on my flight home from Minneapolis while looking out at the clouds....this came to me and I had to write💜

Time 2 go.....
As I look out my window seat
Minneapolis flashbacks come to me,
Rehearsals, parties, hangin & more...
U let me Into your Heart & it's U I Adore.
Though Ur gone from this Physical realm,
Your Spirit Lingers On,
So Funny, So Gifted, So Giving, So Strong.

Thank u Prince for the Journey, the Love & the Lessons,
U were more than my Partna', U were My Blessing💗
Sunday's service gave my heart a hug as U knew it would, I Feel a New Peace and that is Good.
I will Honor U in death as I did In this Life,
I'll Do NOTHING to tarnish that Beautiful Light.
I dropped by wasn't the same,
But I found comfort in the mementos that bore your likeness & name.
U were loved by SO many... Every Color, Every Creed, U touched their Souls and planted MANY Seeds.
So Sleep well my Sweet Prince as I start a Chapter that is New,
A lil scary, but I can hear ..."Wheels up Shel....We Got Work to Do"

U chose ME for this ride, 2 be Right by YOUR side, My Guide.... Can't wait 2 C U on the Other Side🤗💜
We sang this together & now it REALLY rings TRUE,

Mayte Garcia (
"I can't even think of the words of what I'm feeling. This man was my everything, we had a family. I am beyond deeply saddened and devastated ... I loved him then, I love him now, and will love him eternally ... He's with our son now."

Manuela Testolini (
"Prince and I had a magical journey together and I loved him immensely. The world knew him as a musical genius - I knew him as a husband, friend and fierce philanthropist. Philanthropy brought us together and it was Prince who encouraged me to start my own charity over 10 years ago. I just reached out to him a few days ago to let him know that I was building a school in his honor. My heart aches that the school will now be built in his memory

I don't think I had Eric Clapton on my original list.

Eric Clapton (
"I'm so sad about the death of Prince, he was a true genius, and a huge inspiration for me, in a very real way.

"In the 80s, I was out on the road in a massive downward spiral with drink and drugs, I saw Purple Rain in a cinema in Canada, I had no idea who he was, it was like a bolt of lightning!

"In the middle of my depression, and the dreadful state of the music culture at that time it gave me hope, he was like a light in the darkness.

"I went back to my hotel, and surrounded by empty beer cans, wrote Holy Mother.

"I can't believe he's gone."

Is there any big name artist that hasn't commented on Prince's passing? The only one I can think of is George Michael. Unless he did and I just missed it.
