Prince: Did He Know His Death Was Coming?!

As you've likely heard, music icon Prince died today at the age of 57.

Not surprisingly, his passing has drawn comparisons to the recent death of another music legend.

David Bowie passed away in February after a long battle with cancer that he'd managed to keep private - no easy feat in 2016.

Now, many fans are wondering if Prince - one of the only figures in the history of pop and rock music who could accurately be likened to Bowie - took a page from the Thin White Duke's playbook.

In other words: Could he have willingly masked his illness from the public in the months leading up to his death?

TMZ is now reporting that several insiders believe they have evidence that Prince knew his health was failing.

In addition to the fact that he was admitted to the hospital last week for what his reps called a flu, Prince made some surprising comments to the crowd.

During a party at Paisley Park on Saturday, the Purple One said, confusing many on hand:

"Wait a few days before you waste any prayers."

Add to that the fact that Prince began writing his memoirs just last month, and it begins to look as though he had a premonition.

He may not have been fighting a terminal illness, but perhaps, like Bowie, the music legend knew his time was fast approaching.

Few other details have been independently confirmed as of yet.

A spokesman for Prince has released the following statement:

“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.”
