8 Super Creepy Aspects Of Prince’s Death That Almost No One Ever Talks About

1. Prince Was A Secret Addict

Prince had a number of opioids in his possession at the time of his death including hydrocodone. He also had a number of other sedatives such as Percocet, however, he died of a fentanyl overdose, a drug 100 times more potent than morphine. According to reports, he’d suffered from hip pain for possibly decades as a result of his robust live performances. These painkillers helped him cope with the pain and still perform but they also highly addictive.

Given the potency of all the drugs he had and that, prior to his death, he had recently been treated for a Percocet overdose, it’s fair to say that Prince had become an addict.

Prince consistently kept his personal life out of the spotlight and his circle of friends was very small so, just like his numerous charitable works, it’s no surprise that almost no one seems to know about his addiction.

2. Chemtrails Theory

Since Prince’s death, one theory has come to the fore that has little up internet message boards worldwide, the notion that Prince was killed for speaking out about the government’s alleged use of sprayed chemicals to engage in population control. Specifically, his statement during an interview with Tavis Smiley in 2009 seems to explicitly assert that the government spray chemicals has caused a number of problems in America’s inner cities.

Below is the full interview.

While most view this as a conspiracy theory, there are enough people that believe in it that this theory has gained some traction. The theory is further bolstered by the strange facts of Prince’s death as seen in our next point.

3. Prince’s Painkillers Were Possibly Falsely Labeled

Fentanyl is cheap and easy to make. It’s also incredibly potent and often found in counterfeit opioids. A dose of fentanyl the size of three grains of sand is actually enough to kill a person. There’s also a huge black market for the stuff where it’s sold as hydrocodone or other opioids because the effects are similar and it’s far cheaper to make or acquire.

According to the toxicology report on Prince’s death, he had fentanyl in his bloodstream at the time of his death, however, investigators don’t believe Prince knew that he was taking this drug, what many people in the field of toxicology refer to as a “kill pill.” It’s far more likely that Prince believed he was taking hydrocodone.

Add to this the fact that fentanyl is cheap and easy to obtain on the dark web and many believe that Prince’s drug addiction served as a delivery method for Prince’s assassination to keep him from talking about government mind control experiments that some believe has been going on for decades.

A lot of beloved celebrities died in 2016 but this Twitter account got it almost exactly right.

Another random statement about Prince’s death from way back in 2012. Mikel Giustiniani’s facebook profile is now all but impossible to find and may have been deleted entirely. Some consider this statement to have been a warning to Prince in 2012. Of course, others believe it’s simply Facebook attention-seeking behavior.

It’s unclear who Giustiniani is or even if he was a real person on a real account but thing is for sure, he got this prediction right.

6 ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ Talks About Dying In An Elevator

The 1984 song “Let’s Go Crazy” from the album Purple Rain contains the following lyrics that seemed inocuous enough at the time but, in retrospect, are incredibly eerie.

And if de-elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy – punch a higher floor

And when we do (When we do)
What’s it all for (What’s it all for)
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door

Tell me, are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down?
Oh, no let’s go!

Prince died in the elevator of his own home in Minneapolis.

7. Predictive Programming

Predictive programming is the notion that certain ideas are injected into the public’s awareness via the media sometimes years before they actually occur with the goal being to lessen the blow on the public mind when the event finally does occur.

While the Simpsons are notorious for predicting literally everything, this clip from 2008’s “Treehouse of Horror XIX” depicts Homer killing Prince at the behest of the entertainment industry which fits neatly with the theory that the Illuminati had Prince killed because he continued to speak out against record label control of popular culture, going so far as to even write the word “slave” on his own face during some performances.

8. Eerie Final Words To Fans

In April, Prince made a public appearance just days before his death to seemingly let fans know that he was in good health. In response to a previous outcry of concern, he told his fans “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.”

Only a few days later, Prince was found dead. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
