On Thursday night, Rickey Smith, a season 2 American Idol alum, tragically lost his life at 36 years old after he was involved in a car crash on a highway outside of Oklahoma City.
Apparently, Smith was driving down the I-240 when Gerardo Cedra Jr., who was driving a 2003 GMC pickup traveling the wrong way, slammed into the singer's vehicle head-on. Once police arrived, they pronounced Rickey dead on the scene and TMZ reports that police booked Cedra for a DUI.
During his run on the singing competition show, Smith was most well-known for performing What the World Needs Now Is Love by Dionne Warwick and was compared to Brian McKnight for his vocal talent.
After learning about the news, both Studdard and Aiken took to Twitter to share:
It's like Keith Urban is quoting something straight out of a Nicholas Sparks book or something!
The country crooner admitted that it was totally love at first sight when he met the blonde beauty, and that his life hadn't truly started until that moment!
Ch-ch-check out how he absolutely gushed over his lady love:
Wow. This is powerful.
"I too, waited anxiously for a prescription to be filled for the opiate I was secretly addicted to. I too, took too many at once. I too, sought to kill emotional and physical pain with pain killers. Kill it. Make it stop.
Too many of our fellow humans, famous, infamous, and not famous at all, have sought the same relief. The symbolism of James Taylor's Fire and Rain,an anthem of addiction, seems more poignant as now it is a purple rain, another loss to drug addiction."
The Scream Queens star — who has been in recovery from her addiction for 17 years — continued:
Trans people just wanna have access to the bathroom. They just wanna.
Cyndi Lauper is without a doubt one of the most influential gay icons of the 1980s, which is why some fans questioned her decision to not cancel her shows in North Carolina despite the state's anti-transgender bathroom laws.
The pink lady already explained that she was going to donate all proceeds from her concerts to local LGBT-friendly charities, and now she's speaking out again!
Cyndi stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday to share her take on the controversy, and she actually made some really good points!
For one thing, she believes it's more supportive to physically be in North Carolina and to rally against resident bigot Gov. Pat McCrory than to voice your concerns from the sidelines.
In fact, the True Colors singer even shared a touching story about how deciding to play shows in Florida when Trayvon Martin was murdered actually helped the community!
We still think musicians cancelling their gigs sends a strong message, but we're glad artists like Cyndi are willing to slum it down South for the betterment of our transgender peers!
Ch-ch-check out Cyndi's politically charged Late Night appearance (above)!!!
We bet Kim Kardashian West is gonna love this!
It's been revealed by TMZ that her former BFF is also launching her own emoji app set to debut this coming Tuesday!
While there isn't much of a look at the images to come with the 27-year-old's app, it's said to include her fiancé and kind of highlariously, her most recent mugshot.
It's said Angela Kardashian could rake in millions!
Will U be checking it out??

We can't say we're surprised.
Of course, this sudden change in style sent Directioners into a tizzy online. We mean, the British cutie essentially taunted his loyal fans by teasing the new cut with a picture of his snipped ponytail — but not the shorter look. Oh, you think we're kidding?
In fact, many took to Twitter to comment on the A-lister's charitable donation (below).
