The music world has lost another legend as Grammy award-winning musician Emilio Navaira passed away Monday night at the age of 53.

Navaira was best known as the king of Tejano music — a Texan-Mexican style — and sang alongside Selena several times before she was shot and killed in Corpus Christi, Texas back in 1995. After the songstress' death, Emilio became of face of the genre.

Reportedly, Emilio's family members found him unconscious and called 911. Unfortunately, it was too late as doctors later pronounced him dead. Though there hasn't been an autopsy yet, it's believed that the singer suffered a heart attack.

Several years ago, Navaira talked a bit about about his transition from primarily a Latin audience to trying to break into the English speaking scene saying:

prince friends speak out

It's been weeks since news broke of Prince's untimely death, but only now are his close friends opening up about his painkiller addiction.

As you may recall, not long after the late icon's passing was confirmed, it was revealed that the Purple Rain singer struggled with an almost decade long addiction to Percocet. How sad!

It's been said that Prince's abuse of opioids may've been the result of his chronic hip pain that hindered his physical activity levels. One of the Raspberry Beret artist's old collaborators named Sky Dangcil theorized the Grammy winner "took the pills to keep the show going."

Oh no! Apparently, when Prince couldn't deal with his pain any longer he would reportedly travel to his estate in Turks and Caicos in order to "rest his hips." As you may know, Sky was both a DJ and a violinist for the Minnesota native between 2000 and 2007.

Not surprisingly, more info has been revealed about the authorities' investigation as a search warrant as been issued for North Memorial Medical Center where the pop icon's physician, Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg worked. The warrant is specifically for the doctor's medical records and prescriptions he wrote for the Grammy winner.

TMZ has learned that the warrant states that the cops interviewed Dr. Schulenberg who admitted he not only treated Prince twice in April, but one of those times was the day before he died! Oh, and he went to Paisley Park to drop off the test results the day Prince died.

Well, funny thing about this whole situation is that the doctor has since left the facility where he practiced and no one knows why! A representative for the facility even told TMZ that

Prince was not only a talented musician, but an incredibly versatile mentor. Or at least, that's what he was for Snoop Dogg.

Over the weekend, the Gin and Juice rapper opened up about the late icon's influence and couldn't help but gush about the Purple Rain singer. Aww!

He shared:

"Musically, visually, sexually – Prince was the greatest to ever do it. Point blank. He showed us how to seduce a woman; make music that felt good to women and appealed to men as well. He stayed in tune with his feminine side while remaining masculine."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves. In fact, Snoop witnessed Prince's skills first hand when he and his wife Shante were seated next to the Raspberry Beret artist at a basketball game. The 44-year-old added:

As we previously reported, Andrew Kornfeld flew to be with the Raspberry Beret singer in order to help him with his painkiller addiction. What's odd about this situation is that it is Andrew's dad, Dr. Howard Kornfeld, who was asked by the late icon's rep to come help save Prince from himself.

Rather than just drop everything to be with the Grammy winner, the rehab specialist sent his son
