Paying tribute to the late musician, who died at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota on Thursday, Gaga, 30, wrote on Instagram that she feels “that when we die our souls hover for at least a moment if not longer before they either rest or are recycled into the consciousness of an already living being or maybe a newborn baby.” She continued, “Isn’t it amazing Prince shared his soul with us so deeply before his death, and now after we will be replenished endlessly by both his legacy and all that he still has to give from the beyond.” Yamaha Reveals Details of Piano Prince Custom Ordered Posting an image of the “Purple Rain” singer, Gaga concluded, “Thank you for sharing your life with us Prince.
