RIP John Lennon. The list of sudden and unexpected celebrity deaths is long—Princess Di, Heath Ledger, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe, and many more. Which one affected you the most on an emotional level?
Even though I liked Nirvana when Kurt Cobain died, it was a recent interest and I was too young to be affected.
The two deaths that affected me most are Princess Diana and John Ritter.
Princess Di was such a beautiful soul who did so much good for people. I remember being in Cape Cod and hearing about her death on the television. I remember crying over it :(
I grew up with John Ritter and his death shook me to the core. He was like a brother and friend when I was a child and I also had a crush on him (well, his character Jack Tripper). I've adored John since I was a child and when I read that morning that he died here in LA I remember crying extremely hard. It was so unexpected and tragic. I felt so awful for his kids and really identified with him. My father died at a young age very unexpectedly so I knew what they were going through. I remember grieving for weeks over John's death and even know some episodes of Three's Company and 8 Simple Rules get me emotional.
