Most Shocking Celebrity Deaths
John Lennon's death wasn't surprising at all, to be honest. Was his death a bad thing? Yes, and it kick-started a series of events leading up to Ronald Reagan getting shot, but in Come Together, he was literally saying "Shoot me" over and over.
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.
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"
John Lennon was killed all because that assasissin name Mark David Chapman was angry at him for saying that The Beatles was very popular than Jesus Christ? This guy (Chapman) needs to grow up. Everyone is famous even Jesus Himself.
I picked Michael Jackson because when he died I was only 9 going on 10 years. And I didn't know all about his other brother s and sisters (except for Janet Jackson) and the Jackson 5, or about all about most of All the other songs he made.
Until he died so that's what kinda shocked
Note: I LOVE AALIYAH TOO, but I was only 1 when she died. So I didn't know what was going on... But the reason I picked MJ is because I was 9 when he died. But now that I'm older and I know a lot about her its kinda shocking how she was just about to be BIG she went on that plane and died. P.S. I didn't pick the other celebs either because I wasn't born when most of them died
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.
I was so sad of his death since I heard about it. It's 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
I come to school, and everyone's just suddenly like: "Hey did you hear on the news? Michael Jackson's dead! " everyone was like beyond shocked. I didn't even see it coming. I was half expecting him to wake up and tell everyone that it was just a prank. But guess that never happened. :'(
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
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.
They should kill more often politicians. After all, Kennedy was not a saint. He was like most politicians a corrupted hypocrite!
I'm not American, but even I know that Kennedy was a great president. You're a douche.
Saddest part I think is Kennedy could have been on the list of one of our greatest Presidents
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.
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.
It's been several months and I still can't believe such a legend is gone. Robin, you will always be missed and I will forever be sad about you being gone.
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.
An absolute legend. I am brought to tears every time I think of her. Rest in peace
This is why taking drugs is bad
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.
Amy was one of my favorite singers in the world. She had a very special vocal and very beautiful and touching songs. She could have been a legendary artist.
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
Amazing singer, and the irony behind her death is really sad
The biggest loss of the music industry. Your legacy will live on Freddie, you are a legend.
I love you Freddie Mercury. I will always will. RIP Freddie. I love Queen
A musical legend who defined rock and the queer community
He is the best yet...and I wish I could see him...RIP Queen :'(
Diana's death is shocking, Because she was so active with helping humanitarian aid in the 3rd world countries.
Easily the most shocking celebrity death. The world stood still the day after,
One reason why paparrazis are the most annoying people for celebrities.
Reason why I'm afraid of driving cars
He was such an amazing person. So brave, a peacemaker, why did he have to get shot?
A great Christian man who slaved for freedom.
He got assassinated. Sad.
/ don't hate on the king bro he's considered one of the best musicians ever
His heart attack shouldn't have happened. He would be 82 by now. :'(
THE KING IS TOO UNBELIEVABLE TO BE OUT OF THE TOP TEN.
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
Such a sad death... I still watch her... I wish she was till with us!
The most beautiful woman in the world dies in unnatural way
He had a rough youth. Then when everybody was looking this way gets shot so sad
Assassination happens to people with lots of jobs, not just politicians
His music got me through my ruff high school years! RIP 2pac
Best rapper no one even close to second
A great guitarist shot onstage while performing. What can be more shocking than this?
No one expected him to be shot on stage which he didn't deserve that at all R.I.P Dime
He died when I was 7 or 8 I think
Shot on a stage.
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 hear
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.
Thought I was gonna marry him, rip future husband 'till we meet again
Best Joker Ever! Just wish someone would of told him that! RIP Heath!
Such a tragic, unexpected, sad death. Thanks Keith for all the effort you put into spreading Jesus' love.
He had a throat infection and pneumonia, so it was gonna be expected at his time and age.
Why is this on here. no one living remembers his death so how would they know if his death was shocking
He died because of the illuminati
Difficulty to breath.
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.
I will never stop loving him and the other dudes in Linkin Park.
Chester will always be my role model. I'm so thankful that I had the chance to meet and hug him before he died. He has a special place in my heart! <3
The leader of Linkin Park dying shocked all of us TopTenners. Even if I find metal overrated, he still didn't deserve this death.
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.
If she was still alive, there's no doubt that she will be one of the biggest star of all time... If only...
Rest in paradise selena 😢
His death was a tragedy and is mourned by millions each and every day. He changed the world and music as we see it. He will not be forgotten.
We love you
R.I. P Kurt. A legend, who started a whole era, and ended it by himself. Thanks to him, grunge became popular.
This man was a very great person. He helped okay so many of us who were struggling.R.I.P. Kurt Cobain
Legend! Changed history and many lives! Thanks for the amazing music cobain, R.I. P
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
One of my favorite actors. When I found out I could not stop crying.
He will be missed for his humor, his fans and the help that he gave those in need.
May he Rest In Peace
One of the best actors. A gifted person, taken tragically. Way too young to die. RIP Paul. We love you.
It was such a shock he was such a great human being and so talented and great loss to the world
It was more shocking than the death of MJ
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..
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 Cameron Boyce. You will be truly missed. He was such a great guy. He was so nice, and all he wanted to do was make the world a safer place.
So heartbreaking to see him die at age 20 he seemed like a really good guy who could have done the world a lot.
Needs to be in top 5
