Prince Has Been Cremated


Rock icon Prince's body was cremated on Saturday and a private memorial held for his family and friends at Paisley Park studios in MN...

A statement from Yvette Noel-Schure reads,
"A few hours ago, Prince was celebrated by a small group of his most beloved: family, friends and his musicians, in a private, beautiful ceremony to say a loving goodbye."
"Prince's remains have been cremated and their final storage will remain private. We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time."
"The cause of death remains unknown and it will be at least four weeks before we receive the results of the autopsy. An announcement will be made at a future date for a musical celebration."

I still can't believe he's gone. He was a private man, so I'm glad they respected his wishes. How tasteful...Food for thought this morning: How masculine is it to define your life by your own standards? You risk a sure ass whoopin' walking down the street in a fluffy shirt and peach-colored pants, right? And to push boundaries and challenge the record companies is as masculine as it gets. Prince really was an example of what a businessman and maverick is.

The autopsy has already been done. The results will be known in a couple weeks.

OT: Great. I want to be cremated one day too. RIP.

I have purposely stayed away from all the Prince stories. It's just so sad to see yet another legend from the 80's leave this earth so soon.
Music is dead...RIP to the King of Pop, Queen of R&B and lastly Prince.

@9:42 am they found something but they're taking a "few weeks" only because they are concocting some bullshit they want us to believe

Just so I can know. How long should they had let his body sit before a burial or cremation? What would had made it less "fishy"? It is a damn shame that people can't even die in peace without a motherfucker MAKING UP a scandal or disease ti feed their gossiping "sumthing ain't right" habit. Jewish people get it done within 48 hours is that "fishy" too? fucking lames.....

And you know this how? Autopsies generally take a while to come back. It's not strange at all.

@12:10 Agreed, his wishes.

The way the paparazzi followed them to the funeral home was terrible, I think they could have had an unmarked decoy with his actual body in it to fool them. And the funeral home they took him to, damn. I live in the hood and this looked like a house around the corner made into a funeral home SMH.

I understand that he didn't want any fanfare but he wasn't broke, WTH!!!!

"Jewish" people get everything done in secrecy and the goyim only figure it out decades later, if ever.

But I'm glad you are a strong advocate against skepticism and intellectual curiosity, even if it is regarding petty gossip. SMH...

^^^^ shake your head and be glad. It is not petty gossip insinuating that there is some huge scandal or cover up going on because his people are still carrying on his business, his legacy and his wishes as he would have wanted. The vultures speculating are the ones who wanted to see Whitney with her head submerged in the bathtub or Tupac on the table with a big ass gunshot wound. They want gore and drama to add to the excitement of death. They need MORE to talk about. It being over this quickly they feel shorted of evil to spew. How long should they had waited until Harvey or Fred's ugly ass got a picture so that we can SEE they assumed illness that would make les miserables happier? I bought up Jewish people and their ways to show nothing is "fishy" about taking care of a loved one especially an iconic loved one final preparations to be at peace and rest. Continue to shake your head and pay no mind to the rattling you hear as you do. It's your 2 cents and it doesn't matter *the rocks voice*

I'm a Sabbath Keeper. Prince was a Sabbath Keeper. I'm sure he kept some Jewish traditions. Meaning food choices, our day of rest etc. All Sabbath Keepers are not Jewish.

To be buried asap... with a plain, private, no music no frills, no embalming etc. is pretty much how it is done for plenty of Sabbath Keepers... Jew or non Jew... you shall return to dust.

And...Prince was not Jewish, therefore, he was allowed to be cremated. Still returning to dust.

I plan on having the same type of plain funeral and cremation after, so.. I was not surprised about any of this regarding Prince's funeral. Neither was my daughter.

Everybody doesn't worship on Sunday.
Everybody doesn't have funerals or weddings inside of their place of worship.
Everybody doesn't take week to plan a funeral.
Everybody doesn't fight about the deceased wishes.

There is nothing weird or strange about following God's way. When you live life as God intended, things flow rather smoothly.

This is what God says do... and the way it was done for Jesus.

The ignorance on this board is SO astounding. Prince's burial is not a medical examiner cover up. Prince's burial are his traditional wishes.

It's not about money. It's about going home. Doing it God's way. You come in to this world quite simply... leave quite simply and quiet. Why can't people accept others wishes? God bless you all.

The body could've sat a few more days imo. This does seem a little too quick. Considering he was just touring last week.

@Leah...THANK YOU. THE funeral crashers that get all dolled up to go to EVERY funeral they hear about just to talk about the deceased make up, wigs and clothes arr sorely disappointed they don't get to relish in his passing longer. So know they are making up clues and illnesses. So sad. Thanks for the clarity because obviously my common sense meant I was putting too much into "petty gossip".
For the above comment so if you went to work last week and passed this week how long would you like YOUR body on that slab of metal in the refrigerated drawer before your family can start to heal by putting YOU to rest? You people are doing the absolute most and cannot be true fans.

@3:05 I am a Sabbath keeper also which is why I didn't find out he was cremated until late Saturday. I was pissed off at the way I found out, on some garbage site (ROL) that showed his cremation in the worst case scenario and I was blindsided by it. Yes, it is understandable that his family would want to bury/cremate him before the Sabbath, I’m not arguing that fact. Who knows this may have been the only place that could accommodate them on such short notice. But you’re right though it’s not always about money, I guess expected more because it was Prince that’s all.

I probably should not have voiced my anger without doing further research. After more inquires it’s sad to say that a site in another country gave more incite and respect to his personal wishes and funeral service than some of these in America. They didn’t do that the David Bowie whose funeral requests were eerily similar but I’ll leave that story for another day.

3/40 his body could have sat out for what reason?

@2:39 What a contrived and completely predictable statement in response to my comment. Again, thanks for your lack of curiosity and anti-intellectualism. In a world full of lies, distrust, and gossip this is pretty much what everyone has to look forward to.

He could have family that live far away that couldn't get here at the speed of lighting. Have some consideration for them. James Brown sat around for years lol.

@5:52 you are babbling, can't make a point OR address mines so please stfu!! Niggas want bodies to sit around for no fucking reason so they could have NOTHING to talk about. Why they ain't bury him yet something must be up. I knew he was sick but damn. He was just riding a bike the other day. Like you know when the fuck you are going to die. Dumb asses I tell ya.

@6:00

The FAMILY was at the cremation. You want consideration for the fans and it's not about them.
