Lady Gaga thinks Prince has gone to "innovate in heaven".
The 'Poker Face' hitmaker has paid tribute to the iconic star - who was found dead at his Paisley Park estate on Thursday (21.04.16) - for "sharing his soul so deeply" and thanked the 'Gold' hitmaker for choosing to lead a life in public in order for people to share his "gift".
She wrote on Instagram: "I tend to believe that when we die our souls hover for at least a moment if not longer before they either rest or are recycled into the consciousness of an already living being or maybe a newborn baby.
"Isn't it amazing Prince shared his soul with us so deeply before his death, and now after we will be replenished endlessly by both his legacy and all that he still has to give from the beyond.
"Thank you for sharing your life with us Prince. Giving up your anonymity because you felt compelled to share your gift. We learned so much. You just found God early, he needed you upstairs to innovate in heaven."🏽
Meanwhile, staunch anti-royalist Morrissey has hailed Prince as "the royal that people love" while hitting out at Britain's Queen Elizabeth, who turned 90 on the same day the singer passed away.
He wrote on website True To You: "Prince, who made something of his life as opposed to having fortune handed to him, is far more 'royal' than Elizabeth 2, and he will be mourned far more than she, for she could never make herself loveable, no matter how many paid and promoted non-stories flood the newspapers of the world.
"The laughing gulls of Buckingham Palace will never allow you to forget who wields the stick. And, of course, we know very well what gulls tend to do on the people below.
"Prince is the royal that people love, whereas Elizabeth 2 was thrust on the people who have never been asked whether or not they want her.(sic)"
The animal rights campaigner also bemoaned the fact that little has been mentioned about Prince being vegan or "a strong advocate of the abolition of the abattoir".
