Top Ten Saddest Celebrity Deaths of All TimeHate when people on T.V. dies like anything :-(
Yep a hard thing to swallow, a'right
Here's the list to the most shocking celebrity deaths in history...
The Top Ten
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
Michael jackson was an amazing singer/songwriter/human being and he was very talented.
This is so true
Only him. The one and only.46 Comments
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 - Draco
Still the biggest loss of them all. Second is robin Williams
He died before I was born and I would love to have known him. Why did he have to be murdered? Why?10 Comments
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.
Suicide? I'm torn apart! He was the best comedian in existence! How DARE you say otherwise!
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. - Mrveteran40 Comments
Chester Bennington made me smile and sing along to his music since I was 4 so he definitely deserves a spot on this list. He will be truly missed forever and always.
The only person whos death could have a bigger impact on me is eminem
I got very emotional over his death and I still am. After one year it still hurts. A part of my childhood died with him. He will be missed forever. - axgelique
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...17 Comments
I cried for weeks. R.I.P
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.
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. - ChickenKing
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.11 Comments
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
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.
Such an amazing person. Is still missed. What a legacy.
Loved his Eight Below move - Aleca25 Comments
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. :,(
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.
The god of music
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. - RustyNail8 Comments
His voice is amazing and plays piano so well, Queen is the best band, my favorite song is Bohemian Rhapsody cause on the second half, it's just awesome
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
Freddie was my favorite singer I would listen to him every day before bohemian raphcity I want to break free we are the champians killer queen radio gaga all my favorite songs
Inspirational and missed by hundreds of millions of people26 Comments
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
Now there is no more episodes of spongebob squarepants
Breaks my heart - Aleca15 Comments
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.
He wore sunscreen but it didn't protect from harmful rays. - Solarian
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
He was my inspiration as a kid his death tore me apart he will live on as my hero6 Comments
So sad he was a nice person and a great guitarist
RIP Darrell Lance Abbott
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.
Why didn't they kill her off in the movies
Gonna miss her in Star Wars. 😥 - Aleca
I miss Carrie. She was strong, a beautiful princess, a great actress and a wonderful women. May the Force be with her.6 Comments
Even though I wasn't alive at the time she was alive she is really missed by me.
Selena I miss u so much :(.
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.
Selena had the most friendly personality. She had such an amzing voice. R.I.P Selena I miss u wish u were still here.10 Comments
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.
He played the bass unlike no one before him
Could have done so much more - TuxIsAPerson
THE BEST BASSIST IN THE WORLD HE WAS
He is a genius bruv couldn't live without apple much respect bro
If he was still alive. Apple's newer stuff would be much better. - B1ueNew
He was one of the creative minds - iliekpiez
He wasn't done making stuff yet, and it's a shame we'll never see what was coming next.
Sadly could not reach potential - iliekpiez
I'm Afraid Of Americans For Him - Satanscurse35
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.
I can't listen to his music anymore without getting a little teary eye his death was that bad
My sister cried for days and days when she found out. He was her biggest idle. I felt so bad for her.4 Comments
The saddest death ever, worked to exhaustion and drugged to keep him going by a greedy selfish bastard, parker. We have lost the greatest talent ever. Elvis the king ofmusic.
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.
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 #14 Comments
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.
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.
Screw the person who shot her. I hope he's burning in hell for such an evil deed.4 Comments
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
The worst thing happened to the Rap history was Pac's death everything has changed in rap after that day admit it Eminem fans 2pac is the best and the realest
If him and B.I.G. were still alive. Rap wouldn't be so hated now. RIP. - B1ueNew
He’s only popular cause he got shot3 Comments
Taken away too soon and she was pregnant. That idiotic Manson crook and his family had to take her away and her unborn. RIP. - B1ueNew
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.
She was murdered by the Manson family while 8 and a half months pregnant. Why isn't she on here at #1?
What a tragic end to a beautiful life. The savages killed her unborn child to boot.2 Comments
I started watching glee recently and found out about his death and it really broke my heart, R.I.P
This man was the center of my life, even though I had only found out about him like 3 months ago, I feel like I've known him forever, he was so caring and sweet and I'll never forget the imprint he had on my heart
I cried for almost a week when I found out he died on the show glee at first I thought that he busted left Ed the show but then I finished the episode and it said rip them I died inside he was and amazing actor and person rip Cory
The news of his death absolutely broke my heart. A great human being who had a human frailty. He tried so hard to get and stay well. One slip up after an earnest struggle caused him his life.2 Comments
This list is a popularity contest. Amy is the saddest for sure. - Amyk
I liked Amy Winehouse but don't use the word plastic pop generation. People can like whatever they want.
Amy Jade Winehouse was the one who introduced our plastic pop generation to good wholesome jazz. She was ultimately killed by the people she loved most through mental abuse and introducing her to alcohol and heroin. She didn't deserve that, Amy will live on in our hearts forever and we miss her every day, for more information watch Asif Kapadia's documentary, AMY
Definitely the saddest. I still cry watching anything about it
The voice of Minnie Mouse was only 75. She lived a life inspiring everyone & their childhoods with her Minnie character. This is the Disney Company's biggest death after Walt Disney's. R.I.P. - SamanthaRosie
Every time I hear his amazing voice my heart twists. If I see him on You Tube, tears often slip. He was a great talent and it's a shame we will all miss out on what he might have graced us with in the future.
Number one for sure
He was the best he was one of my most favorite shows growing up he was funny and was just number one
We are number 31 (hey) - Bammer73
He was Number One3 Comments
His movies were so great. - Aleca
Poor poor Walt he had the best kid shows I loved Mickey Mouse when I was young.
I loved Disney when I was a little kid
Love you Diana Forever
Diana was the saddest everyone shared the love for her and it was not fair how she died I wish she were her this day I know I'm 11 and she died a long time before I was even born but I wish I could of meet her she was a rolemodle and now shes mine! Annabelle,11
What's worse is that she'll never even meet her own grandchildren!
My mom name my middle name Aaliyah I was born 2001 dec 14, she die before I was born in 2001 I look just like her.
She died of plane crash - MeaganSaysHI
I feel like she should be higher on this list no disrespect to others on this list before her but. I think the fact she was so young doing music and acting it just was heartbreaking to see her go so sudden. RIP ANGEL 😘1 Comment
The only good character in family guy is gone...
I was so shocked when he died I have the retro Batman pop figure in his honor - WWEWBMortalKombatFan
One of the most underrated and most musically gifted artists of his time.
I will definitely tell my children and grand children about him... Such a talent that ever lived
This should be higher up. I still remember what happened that day. I was sitting on the couch reading this really sad book and at one point my mum is just like "You know Avicii died". And I just froze, I thought that maybe it was a fake news but then when I realized it was all real I hid my face behind the book and started crying. I still miss you Tim. I'll never forget you, your song have brightened my days and I have so many good memories while sining them.
I request this to be on #1 - AlexImmortal420
Loved “WAKE ME UP” so sad he is gone - Aleca4 Comments
I heard his death when I was going to bed. I immediately broke into tears. I have to admit, that I have never watched any of his movies besides the Harry Potter ones. I cried all night. He said he was going to live to 80, but he didn't. I finally felt I was born too late. I have caught too many celebrity deaths in my 15 years life.
He will forever live on
I honestly cried when I heard about Alan Rickman's death. He was an amazing actor, especially as Snape in the Harry Potter movies. So many people will forever remember him, and he will live forever in their hearts. RIP Alan Rickman.
I was at my school when I heard of his death, as a Harry Potter fan for my entire life, I was beyond devastated I started uncontrollably bawling when I got home, he will live on in our hearts, after all this time? Always.2 Comments
I remember at my family get together hearing the news about this. My dad in paticular hardly uttered another word that night, he was so saddened.
I love him so much...
I have loved him since I was 13. Will love him forever. Died to young! Had so much more to give. The greatest of all time in my opinion!
Died along Carrie Fisher on Christmas … sad
The star of the movie, the crow
Sad how one death (Eddie Guerrero) can impact one man
Eddie Guerrero's death may be a tragedy but it doesn't make Chris Benoit's tragic. Benoit is a monster. - Cesium
RIP BENOIT - awesomehorror
When she died I cried, like, I seriously CRIED. It was seriously the only thing I could think about for a whole two months. My favorite singer, dead!
I wanna dance with sombody
Such an amazing singer with a great voice. It was such a sad day when she died. It was even more sad that it was due to drugs and happened the night before the Grammy's. Her music will live on.
No one will ever hit those high notes like you houston. - MeaganSaysHI3 Comments
He truly did die too young to show his potential.
HE DIED TOO YOUNG RIP
He was good. He was only 20. Very sad RIP. - B1ueNew
Truly an inspiration. Was changing his whole life to become better. A great human being gone too soon. Rest in Peace Jaseh. We miss you.4 Comments
Great man...I'll admit I never paid attention to him before his death but as I learned more about him, I realized what a great and amazing man he is. If the world was ruled by men like him, this world would be like paradise on Earth.
The greatest. Rest in peace.
This death should be in the top 3 at least!
That's sad. I never really cried in the moment, when I heard he passed away, but now I'm really feeling it. Sad how other celebrities are higher than the man who saved South Africa. Smh.2 Comments
R.I.P. Biggie - flagfan02
How could you say something so cruel about someone who died. I don't even know who she is and I don't care if you hate her...show some respect.
Just another idiot who fell from grace thank God
I think she's not the idiot here. How dare you insult the memory of someone who felt driven to take her own life! - The_Personage
