The world has lost another style icon. Prince, a genre-defying music legend whose hits include classics like "Purple Rain", "Cream" and "Kiss", died in Minnesota early Thursday morning. He was 57.
Prince was said to be suffering from the flu earlier last week but his sudden death shocked many fans and peers, including fellow musician Mick Jagger, who hailed Prince as “revolutionary” and called his talent “limitless”.
President Barack Obama also released a statement calling Prince “one of the most gifted and prolific musicians of our time.”
On Twitter, Whoopi Goldberg wrote, “This is what it sounds like when doves cry. Prince R.I.P. Condolences to his family & 2 us all.”
Equally as well-known for his hit singles as he is for his over-the-top styles, here’s a look back at every single Prince hairstyle from 1978 to 2013 that illustrator Gary Card did for BEAT magazine in 2013.
