"So, what is the word now on what killed him... AIDS? The flu? Drug overdose?"


My money is on AIDS-flu. 50-somethings don't typically die of the flu; that has AIDS written all over it.

Rumor is that he'd been suffering from AIDS (not HIV, but full-blown AIDS). Supposedly sometime after he became a Jehova's Witness, he decided that God fixed his AIDS and he didn't need meds.

The overdose on painkillers caused him to die of AIDS-flu

The fuck is all this AIDS talk?

The opiate abuse rumors are way more realistic.

Do you find it that hard to believe a guy with what would very likely be a wild sexual past could have AIDS?

he was on his bike the other day so that really narrows it down to things that could have killed him with sudden onset instead of slow death.

So...I have huge respect for him as a musician/artist. He also sounds, from everything I've ever heard, to be kind of a polymath--really good at a whole wide variety of stuff. Accounts are coming out now about how he was massively philanthropic, too, but kept it quiet.

...but am I the only one who thinks he was often a giant asshole, too?

he was immensely shy, and a very much a strange character

people who are not sensitive to the eccentricities of the socially awkward often interpret their behavior as erratic or callous

I mean, sometimes he was an asshole. Didn't he (his people) file claims and lawsuits for a time when people would refer to him as Prince, instead of "the artist formerly known as Prince" or the symbol or whatever. But yeah it's mostly cause he's a weird eccentric creative dude. But sometimes that personality type leads to asshole behavior.

Like...if you are known to the world as Prince for your whole career, why do you get mad when you change your name and some people refer to you by your old name. But maybe there was some label shit going on, I dunno.

^^, ^^^ yeah, the symbol thing was because the record label was exerting legal rights to his fucking birth-given name.

^^^^ Oh, by any standard, he was a super-eccentric, weird dude. I'm not really talking about that.

I've just read a number of stories about him saying or doing sort of dickheaded stuff, mostly in a bluntly arrogant, prima-donna sort of way. I'm not saying it was totally his MO or anything, like he was just a total cock all the time, but he at least seemed to have some tendencies.

Well the story that he wouldn't let Weird Al parody his song when he asked permission isn't really a dick move IMO. What made him a dick in that story to me was when he had to sit near him at an awards show and his people contacted Weird Al to let him know not to even make eye contact with Prince. WTF? That is some extremely passive-aggressive shit to a fellow artist who I don't recall anybody ever having a bad thing to say about, aside from they didn't like his parody of them. For the most part I never heard much bad about Prince and have a generally favorable opinion of him as artists at that level go, but that story does seem rather ridiculous.

Prescription opiods. I'm going to guess it was a percocet OD. It was probably the same thing that nearly killed him on his plane a few weeks prior.

I didn't realize percocet was strong enough to OD on.

I was on them for a few weeks 10 years ago for major surgery, had no idea they were such a big deal.

I mean, it contains oxycodone. A large enough dose can snuff you out.

You can OD on almost anything; it really doesn't matter per se how "strong" it is when you're thinking in OD terms, but also the amount.

Actually, isn't the acetaminophen the OD problem here, not the opiate? I'm under the impression acetaminophen is relatively easy to OD on, especially for an OTC drug. Just askin.

^ that's right, but it depends what strength he was taking. http://www.rxlist.com/percocet-drug/indications-dosage.htm If he was on the stronger pills, he could more easily OD on the oxy before having issues with the acetaminophen.

aha, the doctor that wrote Prince those scripts FUCKIN BOUNCED. The police are looking for him, and he's nowhere to be found. Also noticeably absent are the actual prescriptions.

I guess he saw what happened to Conrad Murray, and decided to be a hermit for a while.

They've got a "Prince Tribute Channel" but also play huge blocks of him on XM50 and a few other channels.

For anyone too lazy for the link, it was fentanyl. That's one of the most dangerous opioids out there. Just the slightest bit too much and you're a goner.
