Top 10 Saddest Celebrity Deaths of All TimeHate when people on T.V., in movies, or in music die like anything. Yep a hard thing to swallow, a'right. Here's the list of the most shockingly sad celebrity deaths in history...
Michael Jackson was such a wonderful person. He cared about the world and even children. He even donated thousands to charity and popularised many dance moves. Even after 13 years, it's still sad for him to die. He was such a true music legend and an amazing human being. His legacy will live on forever and so will his music. R.I.P.
This may sound obsessive, even crazy. But for 9 years, I have been depressed. Even when three of my family members died, I felt empty and didn't feel any remorse or sadness at all. It's as if all of the sadness I should feel for their deaths are all on Michael instead. I don't know if it has something to do with my trauma from when I was an infant. What I do know, however, is that I'll do whatever it takes to keep his memory and his legacy alive. He may be a celebrity, but to me, he's more than that. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect no matter what they're going through. Despite what the media threw at him, he remained humble and kind even after losing his only true home, Neverland Ranch, where children could play and Michael can get caught up on all of the childhood years he missed.
You'll be dearly missed Michael
My heart simply broke when he died. I don't think I'll ever be the same. There was something so inherently good about him. I always knew that people like Michael are not long for this world,but there is nothing that could have prepared me for the day. There are many singers/actors that I like,but Michael is the only one that I feel a deep connection with..I may not have known him,but I could definitely feel him. I am honored to have walked the earth at the same time as he did and to have been breathing the same air as he did. He was a genius without a doubt,but most importantly he was a TRULY beautiful human being and it showed in everything he did. I still cry from time to time when I think of him. It is hard not to.
Definitely the saddest! It truly felt as if time had froze that day, I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news. No celebrity death has caused me as much heartache as Michael Jacksons, even after 9 years just thinking about his death brings tears to my eyes. Rest in peace Michael, you are truly missed. Your incredible legacy lives on through your music. There will never be anyone like him.
Such a loss of such an inspirational human being, cannot be described. He was definitely, as Jimmy Fallon so beautifully puts it: "I am never gonna see anyone like this human ever. "
He has been such inspiration for, someone like me, who just make other people, feel happy about the world and themselves.
O Captain, My Captain, you will be missed dearly.
I just hope, you have a great day, to Whoever reads this.
Remember you are such a good, lovable human and you matter.
When a celebrity dies, most people just ignore it and go on with their lives. But when Robin Williams died, people took notice. He was an amazing person with a wonderful personality who suffered from crippling depression, as well as the beginnings of dementia and Parkinsons. But anyone who grew up in the 90's can tell you Robin Williams held a special place in our hearts.
He was a comedian. As a comedian he made millions life and made people smile, but no one realized he himself needed a little bit of that joy he gave us. When he died I couldn't believe it how could such a happy man take his own life? I have to admit I shed a few I tears I hope people will remember 80 years from now for he was an amazing man.
One of the few celebrity deaths I cried at upon hearing it. Such a great man, and one whose work I grew up on and loved with a passion. The fact that such a kind and funny man was dealing with so many awful things in life (like dementia and Parkinsons) is such a sad demonstration of how cruel the world is. RIP to a one of a kind talent.
His death was the most saddest death. I feel for Kurt and Heath, but they died because of themselves, drugs and stupid. For music, what part of "Imagine all the people living life in peace" don't people understand.? He was a real musician, memebr of most successful Band and a peacemaker.
He was a great man. He was also a peacemaker and amazing lead singer of The Beatles, one of the greatest bands of all time following Queen. Rest In Peace John Lennon
John Lennon's death deprived us of one of the greatest human beings who ever lived!
He died before I was born and I would love to have known him. Why did he have to be murdered? Why?
Linkin Park gave my childhood a depth I can't express in words. In the past 12 years, it's those memories associated with Linkin Park in my head that I cherish the most. Chester's voice, whether soft or a scream, were always beautiful, energetic, passionate and revolutionary. I care, Chester. We all care...
Chester was such an amazing singer and screamer in Linkin Park, and when I heard about his death in July via a Clevver News video, I was sad about it and I've been on a Linkin Park binge for quite a while. Personally, I think his death was one of the saddest celeb deaths of 2017. Rest in peace Chester. You may have died, but you'll always be remembered as a legend. We all miss you so much. :'(
Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell were the first celebrity deaths that I got emotional over. Two incredible musicians as well as incredible human beings and the world is a much darker place without them.
He is my childhood hero. The way he sings and the lyrics, they spoke his heart out as he does mine. He will always be my hero from time to time, his legacy will always lives on.
I am so happy about all of his life's work and I am sad he passed last night. I have always followed him in his footsteps and loved all the Marvel characters. RIP Stan Lee
Definitely, Stan Lee's death was truly heartbreaking, he was a genius, and probably one of the best entertainers (or probably the best one).
His passing is the only thing that can make me cry and after he died I went through a small depression. This man deserves to be number one. I love you 3000 Stan Lee
I am not a fan of Marvel, but he had inspired many kids who do like Marvel. RIP Stan Lee... You're legacy will always live on...
I think it bothers me more that we'll never get to see him do more. The joker was arguably the best performance of all time. I hate to see that his legacy has to live on through that role, when he could have easily become the most famous actor in history if he were still alive.
Definitely the saddest. He had such a bright future. He never lived to see himself win an Academy award and the saddest thing is he died thinking everyone would hate his portrayal as The Joker when in reality it was one of the greatest.
Devastating. Such an absolute tragedy. Someone so young, who was just finding his momentum. I still dream about the amazing things we might've seen him in.
He was an amazing actor who alwase
Played a completely different character. He went from romantic bad boy Patrick in "10 things I hate about you" to a creepy homicidal joker in "The dark night".
By far my favorite actor ever. His death destroyed me and helped me realize that life isn't always that long. Paul taught us that family is the most important thing in our lives and that we should all live life at a quarter mile at a time
At first I wasn't sad because I've never watched any of the Furious movies. Then I watched them one by one and I broke into tears at the end of Furious 7. His death was one of the saddest.
I cried when I heard he died his movies were such a big part of me growing up and when we saw the last ride with him and vin in fast 7 I cried more than I have ever.
I have never seen any of the FatF movies, so when I found out that he died, I honestly didn't care. I just now watched 1-7 movies, and now I fully understand everyone's pain. He was a truly great person, and wish that he faked his death even though I know that that is impossible. May he R.I.P.
Absolute legend, listening to queen makes me so happy and he is such an inspiration when it comes to expressing yourself and being confident in who you are. He is the first person I think of when someone says the word legend, what an icon.
For me he should be further up on the list, I think about him every day.
He was just so full of happiness and joy and had a smile that could pull you out of the darkest of moods, when he died the whole world lost a whole lot of light. We miss you Fredd!
I genuinely think about Freddie every day, he deserved the world. Such a talented, beautiful, kind man beloved and missed by millions of people. We love you Freddie
Why is he not number one? Are you kidding me? 25 years later and I still think about him everyday.
Kurt Cobain spoke for those who couldn't and he still does today. His lyrics were simple and yet deep at the same time, so many people including myself can still relate to his music. He was not a god, he was a good guy who loved to make music and share his ideas, his death only immortalised his work, contrary to the the official police report, Kurt didn't commit suicide, check it out for yourself in the documentary Soaked In Bleach, no matter what you make of his death, think about his life, his achievements his positive things. It makes me happy that someone like him actually lived. We need more people like him. Rest in peace Kurt.
It hurts that I will never get to meet this great musician, Nirvana is my favorite band but it is sad that I will never get to meet the lead singer in person. Kurt was amazing but I understand that he couldn't handle being "mainstream" and he was depressed, so the only way out for him was suicide. At least he isn't suffering, but it makes me so sad that Kurt isn't in this world with us anymore. :,(
Most people think he had a pretty good life. Watch " Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck" He had a horribly sad life. From Start to finish. It will bring you into crying on the floor.
He killed himself to escape depression, memories of past as sad as it sounds to be.
Why is Martin Luther King Jr. 56 and Michael Jackson no.1?!?! Michael Jackson was a pedophile and Martin Luther King Jr. changed the world!
Marin Luther KIng was an iconic rolemodel to many people and will always be in our hearts. He was so inspiring and I just wish that he could've had longer on this earth. ='(
The best vocalist & keyboardist of Fleetwood Mac. She was 3.5 weeks from from Christmas. Fleetwood Mac & rock music itself will never ever be the same without her. R.I.P. (1943-2022).
My family aren't fans of the Star Wars movies, so I didn't even know until January 2nd, when I went back to school. All my friends are huge fans of the Star Wars movies, so it was all they wanted to talk about. I didn't believe them, so I looked it up online later, and I almost cried. May the force be with her.
I LOVE Star Wars, like badly with every once of my heart. So when I heard she died I was in my room crying for at least two hours. I'm really sad that the world had to take away an amazing light to the world.
I miss Carrie. She was strong, a beautiful princess, a great actress and a wonderful women. May the Force be with her.
The news of her death made the last Star Wars movies challenging to watch.
The way he died is just hearthbreaking and horrible. It makes you fear for anyone who performs on stage, you never know when some maniac is gonna get up there and try to cause harm. R.I.P.
I am so surprised that Elvis didn't make the top three? He was arguably the most influential music artist in history. The idea of Elvis being alone, battling addictions caused by depression was unbelievably sad. Others that deserve more recognition is Phil Hartman, Princess Diana and Whitney Houston.
So heartbreaking that he died at 42, I wish he was still here. He was so beautiful and had a voice of perfection. The greatest megastar who ever lived. Still has a massive following in 2019.
Should be number 1 the greatest loss to the music industry ever. God bless him, he was only 42 and gave more to the world than anyone else on this list. Rest in peace darling man.
He killed himself. It just took him years. So incredibly sad. No wonder so many people think he's still alive. We all just miss him so much.
A man a truly respect as his career is my life vocation. A man who enjoyed his job until the end. An amazing scientist, an incredible adventurer, a fearless man who went to the most lost places of earth to risk his life for the most genuine animal documentary of all time. His death was in one way violent, but I think what would make him happy is that he died doing what he loved, doing that one job that made him famous and that defined him. To conclude, the most amazing thing about thing about this man, at the very end, when he was bleeding to death, he remained calm and faded away in calm. A truly amazing man that should be respected and remembered forever.
I love Freddie Mercury he is one of the highlights to music and so does the whole queen band, Steve dedicated his life to animals and his family, and brought entertainment to everyone I feel bad that he passed away, but I'm happy that his family is still carrying the generation, And they still bring happiness! by the way: this was hard to vote
I watched his stuff when I was little. His death made me very sad. He was my hero.
He wore sunscreen but it didn't protect from harmful rays.
A beautiful and talented soul, stolen away from the music world. She had an intoxicating light that attracted everyone, and brought life into the music industry. She made me fall in love with music at the age of 7. Gone too soon.
She even had a child named after her. Selena Gomez was said to be named after her. I wish she had lived to hear that. I'm sure it would have touched her heart.
The Queen of Tejano music will never be forgotten! We her fans love her and will do all that we can to ensure that her legacy lives for the generations to come! SELENA VIVE! #LaReinaDeLaMusicaTejana #VivaSelena
Even though I wasn't alive at the time she was alive she is really missed by me.
Why, why was she murdered, a sweet and pregnant woman. That is a death that will sure be remembered as one of the saddest ever for not only was shen pregnant but sweet over that. The murderer is just a disgusting and vile creature that should never be called human or even animal, because such murderers deserves nothing but the most painful punishment of hell.
Taken away too soon and she was pregnant. That idiotic Manson crook and his family had to take her away and her unborn. RIP.
And she was extremely sweet and would have gave them anything if they needed it. This pisses me off.
She was murdered by the Manson family while 8 and a half months pregnant. Why isn't she on here at #1?
He wasn't done making stuff yet, and it's a shame we'll never see what was coming next.
If he was still alive. Apple's newer stuff would be much better.
There was always a "what if Cliff didn't die" to the music industry. If he didn't die what would Metallica have continued and would And justice for all and their self titled album even have the same name?
Cliff gets my vote. Many on this list are gone because of their own stupid choices. Cliff got squished by his tour bus rolling over on him. So much promise and so much talent lost.
His death was so unlucky and unexpected.
This man shaped my whole world. I fell in love with him when I saw The Labyrinth as a child, I was just fascinated by him. I then sought out his music, and I'm still finding new things to listen to to this day. What a library of recordings this man has. He's brought so much to so many of us, and I feel blessed that he let us love him for the alien that he was for as long as he was here. Thank you, David Bowie. My Hero.
My sister cried for days and days when she found out. He was her biggest idle. I felt so bad for her.
A true legend, my hero
I can't listen to his music anymore without getting a little teary eye his death was that bad
Should be in top 3! She got shot by her dad at only age 10! Her dad is a drunkard and refused to let his wife work!
I'd be proud of her (Judith Barsi) if I were Jozsef Barsi, I'd rather allow her (Judith Barsi) to grow up to be an adult woman/Maria to work.
Definitely the saddest. I still cry watching anything about it
He got shot by a gun
R.I.P Tupac, I wish so badly Tupac didn't get killed, imagine how much more great music he could of made if he didn't get killed! His Music lives on though through all the generations of rap lovers everybody knows about Tupac, his music & his talent. The best thing about Tupac that I loved though was that his music actually meant something he didn't just rap about guns, drugs & killing people. His lyrics were meaningful and He spoke up for the community & rapped about real life problems, I always said Tupac was a good guy & his heart was in the right place. I pray he is in Heaven R.I.P
Tupac is probably the greatest rapper ever - he had an amazing way of sampling songs and was also a fantastic poet with his lyrics. He lives on in his music but I feel he would have had so much more to give had he lived on
HUGE inspiration and gone too soon. My dad always told me about him and I thought he was great. RIP
Probably one of the most tragic and saddest celebrities death ever. The young woman had an amazing voice and was probably an even more beautiful person. Truly got heartbroken from this. And what is also really sad is that her brother, who tried to stop the murderer had to watch his sister die before his very eyes.
I remember when I heard the news about her death. I was sitting on my couch, and I looked at the news on my phone, and it was one of the top stories and I was just thinking, "oh my god, NO. not her." What really shocked me was the way that it happened and how easily it could have been prevented. If it were somebody like Beyoncé, Mariah, or Taylor, the security would have immediately stopped them and checked them for any weapons before they could do anything else. This is a reason why we have to have gun control laws.
One of the saddest deaths ever. She was beautiful and had an absolutely amazing voice. In my opinion, she's better than most singers nowadays. Rest In Peace, Christina. You shall always remain in our hearts.
This was a terrible tragedy that should have never happened. Imagine the career she had in front of her. But then that dream was destroyed by that piece of garbage. RIP Christina.
