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.

The legend will always live on, in his amazing music.

It is the saddest he was an amazing singer dancer actor and and amazing person so sad I cried for a week as soon as I heard about his death

2 Robin Williams Robin Williams Robin McLaurin Williams was an American actor and comedian. Starting as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the mid-1970s, he is credited with leading San Francisco's comedy renaissance. He died in 2014.

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. - Mrveteran

It's so sad that the man who brought smiles to thousands of people's faces had to take his own life. Dementia, Parkinson's, depression - all the things he suffered from are terrible reminders of how evil the world can be. Suicide is an extreme no one should have to go to. There will never be one like him. - The_Personage

3 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

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

I admire him

4 Heath Ledger Heath Ledger Heath Andrew Ledger was an Australian actor and director. After performing roles in Australian television and film during the 1990s, Ledger left for the United States in 1998 to develop his film career.

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.

Wish he had lived on to do other work, being so great as the joker

5 Paul Walker Paul Walker Paul William Walker IV was an American actor . Walker began his career guest-starring in several television shows such as The Young and the Restless and Touched by an Angel .

His death was not only horrible to you guys or the rest of his fans, his death was a tragedy that affected the whole world, as well as the movie industry, even the president and government were heartbroken when he was killed in an accident, he was a hero who was perhaps the best race car driver ever and did feats that no one else could ever do, and he saved a lot of people, his death put the whole movie industry towards rock bottom.

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.

He was a beautiful person. Happy, exuberant, and compassionate. He didn't deserve to get burnt alive. He deserved a peaceful death at least.

He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his ...read more.

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. - RustyNail

Why he committed suicide? I don’t understand 😕 - Gabo147

7 Chester Bennington Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington (March 20th, 1976 - July 20th, 2017) was an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor, best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. He also participated in side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise. He committed suicide in 2017 after a period of depression. ...read more.

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 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.

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. :'( - dbret12

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

9 Steve Irwin Steve Irwin Stephen Robert "Steve" Irwin, nicknamed "The Crocodile Hunter", was an Australian wildlife expert, television personality, and conservationist.

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 was my inspiration as a kid his death tore me apart he will live on as my hero

I watched his stuff when I was little. His death made me very sad. He was my hero.

10 Carrie Fisher Carrie Fisher Carrie Frances Fisher was an American actress, screenwriter, author, producer, and humorist. She was the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds. Fisher was known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars film series.

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 miss Carrie. She was strong, a beautiful princess, a great actress and a wonderful women. May the Force be with her.

Should be number one, her loss really hit me hard, I still get sad knowing that she is not here

11 Selena Selena Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

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.

So Sad wish she were still here

She was amazing person. she still is. I hope the woman who killed selena should BURN IN HELL.

He had a bright future. He was great.

Elvis sucked. glad his gone - Stardum

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.

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

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

:( RIP Tupac

16 Cory Monteith Cory Monteith Cory Allan Michael Monteith was a Canadian actor and musician, known for his role as Finn Hudson on the Fox television series Glee.

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.

Probably the saddest moment in GLEE history. 'Make You Feel My Love' always gets me

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.

She wasn't trashy at all she was quite elegant & she had real star quality about her. She was also the best dancer ever!. I just wish she didn't die, but she lives on through her music
& we will always remember her & never forget her, Miss U baby girl xx R.I.P

He passed away of pancreatic cancer in 2016

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.

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.

He will forever live on

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.
