Prince was a brilliant musician, versatile, and arguably the “King of Pop.” We love Michael Jackson, but Prince just had more tools. Overall, we were blessed to have both of them to show what real entertainment is all about.
A new book, “Nothing Compares 2 U; An Oral History of Prince,” by journalist Toure, who became known for his interview with R. Kelly, reveals Prince’s injury and health that led to his demise.
There was an accident that changed everything for the musician. Prince was rehearsing a song from inside in a bathtub suspended about 10 feet or more in the Civic Center. The set-piece broke, “sending Prince hurtling to the floor,” reports the New York Post.
Prince injured his back and his knee. These injuries most likely led Prince to addiction that killed him. Prince died on April 21st, 2016, from an accidental overdose of the synthetic opioid fentanyl.
“Nothing Compares 2 U; An Oral History of Prince” will be released today.
