A murit si Prince! Cum, "care prinț"? Ala cu Purple Rain

Prince, singer and superstar, dies at 57 at Paisley Park

Media captionPrince released new material nearly every year since 1978 - Purple Rain and Cream were just two of his biggest hits
The hugely popular, acclaimed and influential musician Prince has died at his home in Minnesota at the age of 57.
Police were called to a medical emergency at his Paisley Park estate earlier on Thursday, US media reported. An investigation is underway.
Prince became a global superstar in the 1980s, with albums such as 1999, Purple Rain and Sign O' the Times.
His innovative music spanned rock, funk, and jazz, and selling more than 100 million records during his career.
Born Prince Rogers Nelson in 1958, he was a prolific writer and performer from a young age.
A singer, songwriter, arranger and multi-instrumentalist, Prince recorded more than 30 albums. His best known hits include Let's Go Crazy and When Doves Cry.
He also built a reputation for secrecy and eccentricity, once changing his name to an unpronounceable symbol.
In 2004, Prince was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which said he "rewrote the rulebook".
His latest album, HITnRUN Phase Two, was released last year and he had been touring as recently as last week.
On 15 April he was rushed to hospital hours after performing on stage, but was soon released. At the time he reassured fans he was feeling much better and was resting at home.

'A joy to watch': By Mark Savage, BBC Entertainment Reporter

A musical prodigy from a broken home, Prince famously wrote, arranged, produced and played almost all of his hit records.
But the Purple man's purple patch really came with his first band The Revolution.
With them by his side, he wrote more than two dozen rock classics in a five-year flurry.
Purple Rain, Little Red Corvette, 1999, Raspberry Beret, When Doves Cry, Kiss... At the same time, he dashed off Manic Monday for The Bangles and Nothing Compares 2U, made famous by Sinead O'Connor.
In the studio, he was unstoppable. But the magic really happened on stage. He would vamp, preen and tease an audience into a frenzy, then slay them with a quiet moment of crystalline beauty. He was a joy to watch.

Tributes have been pouring in on social media and fans have been gathering at Paisley Park.
Chic guitarist Nile Rogers said there were "tears and love on our tour bus". Pop star Katy Perry said "the world lost a lot of magic". Director Spike Lee said: "I Miss My Brother. Prince Was A Funny Cat. Great Sense Of Humour."
"Numb. Stunned. This can't be real," wrote Justin Timberlake, while Boy George said: "Today is the worst day ever. Prince R.I.P I am crying!"

Propunerea legislativă pentru introducerea unui nou acord internaţional cu Rusia în sistemul legal ungar conţine o serie de detalii neobişnuite, care acordă o serie de drepturi suplimentare pentru International Investment Bank (IIB), care este succesorul legal al Comecon şi al băncii fostei organizaţii economice sovietice. Documentul prevede că mare parte din costurile băncii - inclusiv remobilarea, chiria şi securitatea - să fie plătite de contribuabilii maghiari.  Presa ungară a subliniat că acordul menţionează o
