En route to becoming the most prolific pop star of his period, Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958-April 21, 2016) bent both gender and genre.
At once a guitar god, keyboard king and dance-floor deity, Prince was rock 'n' roll royalty, fluent in funk and just as glad to play some jazz. His untimely death at the age of 57 in 2016 left a shocked world wanting more.
Scientists have reexamined the skeleton of the prince, who died 3,846 years ago. They say injuries found on his bones point to the "oldest political assassination in history," probably by an "experienced warrior."
Senators briefed by CIA Director Gina Haspel have said their suspicions of Saudi Crown Prince MbS have been confirmed beyond a doubt. Lack of a strong rebuke, they said, would 'make the world a more dangerous place.'
Human Rights Watch has called on Argentina to investigate Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for murder and war crimes. Argentina has a clause in its consitution that could give it the ability to do so.
Mohammad bin Salman has left on his first foreign trip since the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The de facto ruler's tour of friendly Arab states began as France slapped sanctions on 18 Saudis tied to the killing.
