This is just so sad.

As we previously reported, after a two year battle with cancer David Bowie has passed away at 69-years-old. Tragic!

The music icon’s family confirmed the heartbreaking news in a statement on Sunday and we almost still can’t believe it. It’s hard to imagine that it was just days ago that the Space Oddity singer was celebrating his birthday and dropping his 25th and final studio album Blackstar.

David’s loss is most certainly felt worldwide. In fact, we’re not the only ones to think that as many of Hollywood’s A-listers took to Twitter to pay tribute to the Grammy winner — including Madonna, Kanye West, Ricky Gervais, Cher, and many more.
