Wonder also admits that he had made love to Prince's songs
Prince passed away at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota last month (April 21), aged 57. Although a cause of death has not yet been announced, police have confirmed that they are looking into the possibility that Prince died from an overdose of prescription drugs. It was recently alleged that the painkiller Percocet was found in Prince’s system during an autopsy.
Following reports about Prince’s death, Wonder told TMZ: “The sad part is that we lost these various people, whether it be Amy Winehouse, whether it be Michael Jackson, whether it be Whitney Houston. Maybe Prince had a lot of pain that we don’t know about.”
Instead of dwelling on the negativity, Wonder said that the important thing is instead that “many of us are able to make love to their gifts of music, to make friendships and to remember things that were beautiful.”
After saying that he wouldn’t want fans to concentrate on such sad things on “the day when God calls me”, Wonder was then asked if he had ever had sex to Prince’s songs, to which he replied, laughing: “You think I didn’t?”
Meanwhile, police have questioned the doctor that prescribed Prince drugs the day before his death.
It was recently confirmed that Prince had no known will and that DNA tests has been called for to determine who is entitled to his estate.
His death recently inspired the introduction of new legislation in Minnesota.
