The comedian told BBC's Radio 5 Live that he had no idea the rocker was sick, explaining that they had talked two weeks before the musician lost his battle with cancer:

"[His death] was a total surprise. I was emailing him two weeks before, so he must have known. He kept it from everyone."

In the year leading up to his death, the artist had discussed his diagnosis with very few people, including his producer and band members.

The Office alum applauded the star's decision to keep his sickness a secret, adding:

Prince Soars To Number One On Billboard Just 8 Hours After News Of His Death

We're glad his music is helping people cope.

Prince's sudden passing on Thursday marked the loss of a true music legend, but even we're surprised by the latest news.

We're hearing that the 57-year-old's 2001 compilation album The Very Best of Prince is set to top the Billboard 200 for the week ending May 7 with 150,000 albums sold!

While fans purchasing albums to show support for their fallen idols isn't new — David Bowie's Blackstar topped the chart earlier this year — what's special about this album is the timing.

Billboard closes its weekly sales period every Thursday night at midnight, meaning Prince's 15-year-old set managed to outsell every other album in the country this week in just eight hours!

However, we're sure previous front-runners like The Lumineers, Rihanna, and Kanye West will gladly concede to the legend.

The official numbers won't come out until Sunday, but we're thinking keeping his songs off every streaming site except TIDAL certainly played a part in his impressive numbers!

Are U one of the thousands who purchased The Very Best of Prince yesterday??

What a truly wonderful tribute.

It's been a little over two months since David Bowie sadly succumbed to his battle with liver cancer, and his musical compatriots are still reeling from his death.

We've already seen beautiful salutes to Ziggy Stardust thanks to Lady GaGa's gorgeous Grammy performance and Lorde and Annie Lennox's partnership at the BRIT Awards, but it's time to add yet another tribute to the list.

That's because The Flaming Lips just dropped a music video for their version of Space Oddity on Thursday, and it's easily the best Bowie cover we've heard.

It perfectly honors David's memory while standing out on its own thanks to that supremely stylized chorus, and we think it's safe to say he'd be proud.
