Celebrities React In Shock To The Sudden Death of Prince

RIP Prince

Everyone on the planet is still trying to wrap their heads around the fact that

Prince is dead

. We still can't quite process it because we always viewed him as immortal, but after

David Bowie passed away a few months prior

, we quickly realized that nobody lives forever—not even the world's greatest legends.

Today, we lost a creative genius, a beautiful spirit, and an irreplaceable icon. Prince's death is an international tragedy, it's as simple as that. (We can barely find the right words to say, how will someone write the eulogy?!) The one thing that we can all be comforted by, as we struggle to accept this fate, is that we coexisted during his lifetime, though.

While we all find a way to grasp this harsh reality, click through to take a look at how celebrities have been reacting to the news. Similarly to us, they too were struck by absolute shock. We're not saying that this is a necessarily a coping mechanism that we recommend, but it's a solid distraction as each excruciating minute without Prince continues to pass. Let us all mourn together and pay our respects.

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life."- Prince
