Legendary musician Prince was found dead earlier this morning at his home in Chanhassen, Minnesota. He reportedly had the flu last week and was taken to a hospital. The “Purple Rain” singer was 57 years old. He starred in a film based on the successful song in 1984 and recently did a guest starring appearance on New Girl after the Superbowl in 2014.

“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,” his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, released in a statement provided to CBS. “There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time.”

Prince also worked on the 1989 Batman soundtrack as well as directing films like Under The Cherry Moon and Graffiti Bridge.
