This is awful!
Here's the whole story (below):
As one of the music industry's top executives, there's no doubt L.A. Reid had a close relationship with Prince.
As you're aware, the music icon was found dead in his Minnesota estate on Thursday morning. Although the exact cause of death remains unconfirmed, his reps maintain Prince was suffering from the flu. Other reports claim a potential drug overdose triggered his untimely passing. An autopsy is set to be conducted today.
The 59-year-old producer appeared on the Today show on Friday morning to mourn the loss of his beloved friend and collaborator.
Reid told Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer that he is deeply shocked by the news — especially considering how healthy he had known the Purple Rain singer to be:
"The thing that really bothers me about it is the Prince I know was, like, super healthy. Vegan, wasn't an abuser of drugs, wasn't an abuser of alcohol, you know. He lived right, and he was clean. He looked young, he looked really healthy and vibrant. So the whole thing is really mysterious to me."
That is very strange!
He continued by remembering his talented friend:
First there was Cheryl Tweedy. Then there was Cheryl Cole. Now, it's just Cheryl.
That's because it was reported on Wednesday that the 32-year-old pop star will be going simply by her first name Cheryl starting next month.
Apparently, Cheryl wants to rebrand herself following her breakup with Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and will make her mononym debut at the Global Gift Gala in Paris this May.
A source close to the X Factor judge confirmed the name change to Daily Mirror, saying:
Well, on Sunday, model and Taylor Swift squad member Martha Hunt took to Instagram to post a video of herself and a few other ladies learning the girl group's Work From Home dance from the X Factor alum herself.
All tuckered out!
Although, we have a feeling that the Night Changes singer shared this snap in order to squash the bizarre rumors that claim the British cutie and his baby momma, Briana Jungwirth, faked the birth of their son. That's just nuts!
The One Direction member posted:
Meghan recently stopped by KISS FM UK to help promote her upcoming album, Thank You, and got to dishing on several interesting topics, including family, writing music, and even really wanting to join The X Factor U.K.
The most interesting thing that came out of the interview though was when Trainor was asked asked whether she'd be interested in Sheeran taking her to prom!
Instead of telling him her number was No, the pop singer responded:
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has confirmed she is quitting the popular singing competition series to focus on her music career!
The former Girls Aloud singer told reporters that she broke the news to Simon last week over dinner in El Lay — and her boss completely supported her decision!
Speaking to The Daily Mail, the 32-year-old had only nice things to say about the series and working with the music mogul, but admitted she "missed making music."
