When doves die
Clogpoppers is a bit late on this due to….well, sheer forgetfulness….but just in case nobody noticed at the time, purple-wearing pop princelet Prince died, aged 57. In a lift. The cause appeared to be an overdose of some sort of pills, although the circumstances remain somewhat mysterious and speculation continues to swirl about to this day.
And he wasn’t the only one. Much-plasticised reality TV star and former husband of Liza Minnelli, David Gest, met his untimely end in a hotel bedroom at the age of 62, while much-loved Brit comedienne Victoria Wood did the same – well, age-wise, anyway – after a battle with cancer.
