Gene Simmons

Wow — we've heard Gene Simmons without a filter before, but this is on another level!

As we all know, Prince shockingly passed away last month at the young age of 57 in his Minnesota home. Although the cause of death has yet to be revealed, authorities say the case is being treated as a possible drug overdose.

In a new interview with Newsweek, when asked about the recent deaths of several music icons, the Kiss musician said:

"Bowie was the most tragic of all because it was real sickness. All the other ones were a choice."

Filed under: DrugsCelebrity FeudsLegal MattersPrinceControversyPeen

Sinead O'Connor isn't holding back!

Sinead O'Connor isn't worried about Arsenio Hall's lawsuit even in the slightest.

Earlier this week, the Irish songstress pointed fingers at the Celebrity Apprentice alum, accusing him of supplying Prince with drugs over the years and fueling his reported addiction.

The TV personality then fired back with a five million dollar defamation lawsuit, claiming the 49-year-old is just a "desperate attention seeker," and that none of her allegations are true.

But it looks like the soulful singer is literally laughing at the 60-year-old's legal complaint.

She took to Facebook to SLAM his court claims, saying that he won't be able to prove that she's wrong:

"I'm more amused than I've ever dreamed a person could be and look forward very much to how hilarious it will be watching him trying to prove me wrong."

The musician continued to applaud the DEA for investigating the circumstances of the late legend's untimely passing, and told us how she really feels about the comedian, who she even referred to as "ARSE-INIO," writing:

Jamie Lee Curtis Opens Up About Battling Drug Addiction In Light Of Prince's Death

Filed under: DrugsPrinceSad SadRehabJamie Lee CurtisScream Queens

Jamie Lee Curtis

Wow. This is powerful.

In light of new reports suggesting Prince died as a result of drug addiction, Jamie Lee Curtis penned an emotional essay about her own personal battle with painkillers.

In hopes of raising awareness about the dangers of opiate use, the 57-year-old actress wrote in Huffington Post:

"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."

Prince Reportedly Promised His Inner Circle He Was Fine In The Days Leading Up To His Sudden Passing

Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.PrinceSad Sad

Prince

As we know, Prince was an extremely private person — especially when it came to his health.

In a new piece by The New York Times, close friends to the music icon admit the late singer assured them "nothing was wrong" leading up to his tragic death at the age of 57 last month.

The Kiss singer reportedly told members of his inner circle everything was fine in the days after his private plane had to make an emergency landing due to a medical concern. At the time, Prince's reps told the media he was battling flu-like symptoms.

NYT says Prince proved to be doing OK as he organized a house party and rode a bike in a mall parking lot shortly after.

Wow, this is all so mysterious.

While most friends didn't notice a change in the musician, others say Prince admitted to feeling depressed.

911 caller staying silent

There's something shady about all of this…

The man who called 911 for Prince during his untimely passing is remaining tight-lipped about his involvement in this particular tragedy. Hmm, go on.

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

Arsenio Hall CLAPS BACK At Sinead O'Connor With $5 Million Defamation Lawsuit Regarding Prince's Death

Arsenio Hall and Sinead O'Connor

Oh snap.

Earlier this week we told you Sinead O'Connor made some serious accusations that Arsenio Hall supplied Prince with drugs, in addition to "spiking" her drink years ago at Eddie Murphy's house. The troubled singer also went on to claim that Hall is both Eddie and Prince's "b*tch" — which we suppose can be left open for interpretation. Woof.

In response, the 60-year-old comedian has slapped the singer with a $5 million defamation lawsuit. Mic drop.

According to TMZ, the suit denies O'Connor's since-deleted Facebook allegations that Hall fueled Prince's drug habit and calls 49-year-old musician a "desperate attention seeker."

The Arsenio Hall Show host also adds that he never drugged Sinead, who he claims he hasn't had contact with in more than 25 years.

Hall's suit also mentions the Ireland native actually "detested" Prince, once telling him to "go f*ck himself."

But all in all, Hall isn't surprised by Sinead's actions as he says she is "well known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts."

Welp! Can't really argue with that one…
