Death is something that comes to all of us in the end. No matter what our status was while we were alive, death comes for us all the same. It doesn’t care if we have millions of fans who look up to us. It just passes over us like it has for millions of years.
It isn’t always tragic, but when we lose someone who’s been an influencer for years, the society always mourns. It’s natural for us to try to get inside the head of those we adore, and nothing changes after they’e passed. We always want to know what they were thinking before they kicked the bucket.
These final statements range from ironic to heartbreaking. Several of the greats went out with a smile on their faces and wonder in their eyes. Others were involved in tragic accidents, with their last words being a reassurance to their loved ones. Some of these statements illustrate the fact that death is right around the corner, and can come for us at any moment. These people didn’t see their death coming until it was too late.
It’s hard to go out on a dignified note, but these 15 celebrities gave it their best shot.
1. Marvin Gaye
Marvin Gaye’s music will be eternally remembered, as he had some of the most catchy tunes imaginable. Songs like “S*xual Healing” and “Let’s Get It On” can still be found on playlists of those who were born long after the great musician had passed. His musical ability and voice perfectly exemplifies an era of music.
Marvin Gaye died in among the most tragic circumstances imaginable. He had intervened in a fight between his parents, where he got physical with his father. Marvin Gaye and his father never got along, but this disagreement proved fatal for the younger Gaye. His father shot him twice, once at point blank range. Before the fatal shooting, Marvin Gaye told his mother, “Mother, I’m going to get my things and get out of this house. Father hates me and I’m never coming back.”
