There were many tributes for Prince on social media following his unexpected death, outpours celebrities, athletes and fans around the world shared the lasting impact the Purple One had on their lives. Los Angeles based guitarist Andrew Watt also shared a tribute on his Instagram calling Prince “the last of the greatest living performers,” but it appears one person didn’t agree, and that was Justin Bieber. In the now deleted comment, Bieber said “well not the last greatest living performer” which got a lot of people angry, and rightfully so. While there’s still a slight chance that Justin could have been referring to living performers other than himself, it was just bad timing giving the fact Prince had did just hours prior. Check out the original comment above and let us know what you think.
This past Tuesday night before my show I was picking out an outfit…I was so tired from the past week of endless traveling and gigging that I grabbed my Prince shirt and said fuck it I'm gonna channel the purple one tonight…I didn't shower after the gig out of pure exhaustion…I went to sleep in that shirt and then I wore it again all day yesterday…today waking up to this news I am truly beside myself…devastated…the last of the greatest living performers…my guitar idol…his connection to ALL his instruments yielded a sexual transcending aura and the world is just less fucking cool without him walking on it… "Electric word life It means forever and that's a mighty long time But I'm here to tell you There's something else… The after world" #RIPPRINCE
