DID PRINCE DIE LIKE ELVIS?
It had to be painkillers that took Prince from us too soon – but many questions are still unanswered. His Percocet overdose that caused his plane to land in Illinois for emergency treatment tells a lot of the story. But one wonders if Prince ever really HAD the double hip replacement he supposedly needed in 2009. His Jehovah’s Witness religion forbade the surgery, but did Prince do it anyway? He also had foot pain from wearing those high heels at all times – even when physically active. (Recently he’d been wearing high heel sneakers.) He was vocal about NOT doing drugs, but, like Elvis Presley, was he convinced that PRESCRIPTION drugs were okay? Prince and Elvis both lived in insulated worlds, convinced they had special needs others didn’t have, and therefore self-medicating was acceptable. Apparently Michael Jackson, Prince, and many others did NOT learn a lesson from Elvis’s death.
