Most Shocking Celebrity Deathsbatman360
The Top Ten
Nothing was as tragic as losing this amazing musician and humanitarian. He reached so many people and was all about peace and love and looking ever forward. He is missed daily. With this all being said, mu heart was irreparably broken the day Robin Williams left u. Those two geniuses remind me of each other. - Pfeifferpfan
MJ more tragic than John Lennon really he got shot and lived shorter than mj that's just sad, that fat prick killer just ruined history.
the most tragic because he had so many more things he was going to do - Okami
American's are still against gun control. Do they forget about John Lennon. What John said "Bigger than Jesus" was a joke if America wasn't so Bible crazy they would've laughed and he was an Atheist you know that song "Imagine"15 Comments
I think he looks like a girl who else?
I was so sad of his death since I heard about it. Its so entirely sad that I could not focus on my schooling life and every happy images of him were all like it really makes me wanted to cry. Also the saddest thing is that I grew up listening to his songs though I was born in 1995, and seriously. It's all sad. Its sadder gwen people accused him of molesting kids and now his death is even sadder than that. I also pity his kids and was hoping the best for them. RIP, Michael Jackson
Honestly MJ's death really hit me. I was only 8 at the time of his passing but when I heard about his death it bothered me even though my understanding of death wasn't as clear at the time. As the years progressed and I got to know more about MJ, his music, and how he impacted not only the music industry but the world, I came to realize that we really lost someone special. Now nearly a decade later June 25th still remains a sorrowful, difficult, and emotional day for me, spent watching his music videos and listening to his incredible music. His music got me through happy and sad times in life and even though physically he isn't here with me I still feel this connection with him through his music leaving me feeling content and joyed. This man was truly something else and I'm yet to witness an artist as widely known as he was yet still maintain his never ending compassion, humbleness, and desire to make a difference in this harsh world. RIP MJ, your legacy lives on.
It was a normal day at school and them suddenly we find out Michael jackson died and everyone was like "what the hell? " and then when I came home it was on the news and it stayed there for 5 whole days. Wow19 Comments
Kennedy's death was a tragedy. Not only did he leave behind his wife and young children but left behind a nation. Kennedy's tragic death stages the question for the United States of "what could have been? " In only three years Kennedy achieved more than most other presidents but three fatal shots ended an unfulfilled life
Saddest part I think is Kennedy could have been on the list of one of our greatest Presidents
This death saddened me too. He was just going in Dallas to make a speech, then Pee Barbie Oswald assassinated him. What makes it worse, is over 1,000 people saw the shooting. - TeamRocket747
They should kill more often politicians. After all, Kennedy was not a saint. He was like most politicians a corrupted hypocrite!2 Comments
I was at my grandparent's house with my relatives when my cousin said Robin Williams died. at first I thought he was joking so I looked it up, and I turned as pale as a ghost from what I was reading. R.I.P. Robin, I'm sorry your depression drove you to suicide. I grew up with you, and getting the news was like someone punched me in the stomach. you're in a better place now :(
He was in a word, special. He touched so many people. It's so sad he's gone. I pray he is at peace now. Depression is horrible. Count yourself lucky if you or a loved one had not been effected by it.
So sad, such a talented and amazing actor. A great symbol of happiness, such an unexpected and ironic death. Always will be missed
For some on this list, you knew they were physically sick or had flirted with disaster but I thought Robin Williams was different. I later found out that Williams had many demons pulling him in so many bad directions. During interviews he seemed so energetic and at peace with himself, it felt like a nightmare to find out how he passed away and why. He was such a great comedian and dramatic actor. It was just a huge loss.12 Comments
I didn't mind this one. I hated her music. She was a terrible role model to her daughter, who then died in a bathtub as well.
Whitney had an amazing voice. It was a shocking death. It happened in a hotel bathtub.
This is why taking drugs is bad - TeamRocket747
I miss you Whitney - musicalemprire2 Comments
Amy Winehouse had the most unique and special voice, I was so sad when she passed away. She was one of the greatest female singers and she could have been even better if she had the opportunity... She will be missed.
She died so young, On the bright side she did join the 21 club like she wanted :(
Do you know? There is a conspiracy theory that involves musicians and artists dying in the ag 27, cause Shane Dawson Conspiracy T.V. said, “ They exchange their soul to the beast cause they just wanted money, praise, and fame
Her style of music was amazing! RIP Amy4 Comments
A great Christian man who slaved for freedom. - GeneralJP

Easily the most shocking celebrity death. The world stood still the day after,2 Comments
Amazingly beautiful and charming Marilyn Monroe left us in 1962. I'm still shocked because she was going to focus on much more serious and dramatic roles. Believe me, she was very talented, kind and smart woman - Irina2932

The most beautiful woman in the world dies in unnatural way

He had such a bright future and it was really sad for him to die at 28. The saddest thing is he died thinking everyone hate his portrayal of the Joker.
Should be called heath legend
He Had A Huge Heart, Was Very Nice, Had A Great Future Ahead Of Him But Sadly He Didn't Make It. But He Left The Joker Which His Character Got Universally Acclaimed By The Critics And Fans. We Will Never Forget Him.
R.I. P Heath Ledger-1979-2008
His portray of the joker was amazing best I've ever seen and he did the accent perfectly and probably is a very underrated actor for his work I feel bad for his death R.I.P Heath you will always be amazing in my hear3 Comments

God I loved Chester. When I was a kid Lublin park was my favorite band. When I heard of his passing I cried for an hour just listening to linkin park songs. Very tragic. Just shows you money can't buy happiness and that just because you have it all doesn't mean your immune to depression and whatnot. Rest In Peace buddy!
This really shocked me. I was on my way home from Atlantic City today, when I heard on the radio that Chester killed himself. Rest in peace. - The01Bro
I still can't believe he's dead... he was such a great singer.. I'm gonna miss him a lot - Samurai2k177 Comments
If she was still alive, there's no doubt that she will be one of the biggest star of all time... If only...
Selena's death shocked a lot of people because it left fans unable to see what more she had to offer. She was so young, beautiful and a very sweet person. She had so much more to show but all we can remember is the legacy she left behind.
Unlike some of the other celebs (may they RIP) Selena was murdered. She wasn't dealing with troubles such as drug abuse or depression. Someone else ended her life in cold blooded murder.
RIP. - TeamRocket7471 Comment
One Of The Saddest deaths he was an amazing actor he was amazing in the Fast and Furious movie series. Fast and Furious will not be the same without him. he cared about the poor people as he has his own charity so sad he died RIP Paul Walker you will be missed - mneilan

Aaliyah was a very beautiful girl, she was talented and I was so sad when she died. She was just about to become truly famous but she went on that plane and sadly, died.
A beautiful talented lady her star was just really taking off such a huge loss to us all rip sweetheart your missed and loved
This one probably shocked a lot of people at hearing it. I wasn’t born but I can tell her passing had a huge impact on music
How River Phoenix is number 20 I have no idea, his death was so unexpected and heart breaking. I know people still crying over his death to this day, 23 years later. He was so young, and so loved. He was a gorgeous man, inside and out. He had a beautiful voice and he was such an amazing actor. River you live on.
River Phoenix was special. He was just such an amazing person who was not only very talented, but cared a lot. He was a vegan who protested animal rights and he was an environmentalist. I think more than anything though he had so much ahead of them, and he cherished life.
I can't believe that such a naturally talented angel is no longer with us. He was so special and still means a lot to me and he is also still missed by many people to this day.
Should be in the top ten. Incredibly sad and tragic1 Comment

Owen hart was and will be forever the best wrestler of all time better then cena he should of never died rip owen hart.
It was a cover up murder.
When I first heard it, I couldn't believe it and I still can't. Cory was such a nice person and we are all blessed to witness this amazing talent he had in acting and in singing. He will always be in my heart no matter what and he will always inspire me.
Such a beautiful man taken from the world too soon. It breaks my heart to know he's gone but his memory and all he done for kids and teens alike will live on. Inspiration- regardless of the cause of hs death.
One of the best on Glee the show will not be the same without him - mneilan
I miss him so much...1 Comment
I have "mother is the name for god on the lips and hearts of all children "tattooed on my back from the movie the crow
The star of the movie 'the crow'
Honestly, I think we all knew that our favorite celebrities as kids wouldn't be around forever and at least one of them probably would end up dying young. But I don't think any of us thought that it would be Cameron Boyce of all people. Even though it has been almost four months since he died, I just can't process the fact that he's really gone. He was definitely too young and he had such a bright future ahead of him. It broke my heart to find out that he was dead since I grew up watching him on T.V.. - TriSARAtops
So heartbreaking to see him die at age 20 he seemed like a really good guy who could have done the world a lot.
At only 20, he died of an ongoing medical condition.
He played on Jessie and Descendants on Disney Channel.
Disney Channel has a lot of weirdos, but this was just shocking.
He died so young at the most unexpected time.
This is one of the most heartbreaking days for all of Disney Channel.
R.I.P. - Gregory
Yes the best actor/singer since ari6 Comments
After Elvis Presley and John Lennon, the loss of Morrison was the greatest blow to music of the past 50 years.

I Was So Shocked About This Death That I Watched All The Harry Potter Films In Respect Of Him.
I was shocked about his death.
I just woke up in the morning,read the newspaper and found out Alan Rickman ie. professer Snape had died I was shocked and sad.
This guy got pinned between his car and a wall. Terrible
Can't believe he just died right after he starred in an awesome Star Trek movie. - BoltMarksman
RIP Anton! You will be missed
Most tragic considering his health
He was the most badass Kung fu master to date I am sad that he died in 1975
1975? He died in 1973.
I was shocked when I heard he had died from cancer. I had no idea he was so ill
I was sad to hear that the rock and roll prince died
You were wonderful man god bless
Personal reasons, why I found it so shocking: I went to school with him, before he became famous.
