Avicii, DJ Producer, Dead at 28

Avicii, DJ Producer, Dead at 28

 

Avicii, DJ Producer and international pop star, is dead at the young age of 28.

Earlier today the music industry was sent shock waves as it was revealed that one of the most successful and famous EDM star’s Avicii had died at only 28 years of age.

Avicii was a Grammy-nominated electric dance DJ who sold out more venues than an other EDM DJ to date. “Wake Me Up,” one of Avicii’s most successful songs was a multi-platinum success that peaked at number four on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

His death comes just days after being nominated for a 2018 Billboard Music award for his dance/electric EP “Avicii (01).”

In 2016, Avicii retired from making music, largely in part to a drug in fueled lifestyle that he had grown accustomed to on the EDM circuit.

Avicii would battle his demons, and soon over come them during his time away from the industry (mostly a drinking problem.)

Last year Avicci posted a message on his website announcing his return to the music industry. “The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new.”

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” a statement from Avicii’s rep to Us Weekly earlier today reads.

“He was found dead in Muscat, Oman, this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Why Carole Radziwill Says She’s Leaving ‘Real Housewives of New York City’

Why Carole Radziwill Says She’s Leaving ‘Real Housewives of New York City’

Carole Radziwill is saying thx, but no thx to another season of The Real Housewives of New York City.

The longtime star of the Bravo hit has announced she will not return for the 11th season of the show, which will likely begin filming later this year. The 54-year-old released a statement about her decision to depart on Wednesday, which comes before the series’ current season, its 10th, finishes airing. The cast has completed filming, however, having taped the reunion special earlier this month.

“After six seasons on Bravo’s [Real Housewives of New York City], I have decided to return to what I do best — journalism and producing,” Carole writes. “I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind.”

The show’s current season has largely focused on Carole’s falling out with one-time bestie Bethenny Frankel. The duo has been locked in a fight over growing pains in their friendship since the season premiere, though it’s never been made totally clear what their fight is about exactly.

“I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind,” Carole notes in her statement, seemingly a nod to Bethenny. The timing of Carole’s exit announcement is somewhat poetic, as she once joked that the summer of 2018 would be her “last great summer.”

The former ABC news producer and author, who has penned both a memoir and a novel, joined RHONYin its fifth season after a major cast overhaul, which saw the exits of original stars Jill Zarin and Alex McCord. At the time, Carole wasn’t the typical Housewife, a young widow who came from the world of hard news.

“My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years,” Carole’s statement continues. “I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament. I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends … I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy. Next.”

Carole appeared to further address her exit on Instagram, sharing a post that simply said, “Didn’t change, just learned,” which might be a response to unsupportive viewers.

Bravo has not revealed if any other cast changes will be made ahead of RHONY’s 11th season. The current lineup includes Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer, in addition to Carole and Bethenny.
