In 2016, World lost more than 80 stars. News portals admitted that 2016 was the year theu reported so many deaths of celebrities. David Bowie, Alen Rickman, Victoria Wood and atlast now Prince, are few among them. They say the reasons may be several. One of them is that, many of those now dying belonged to the so-called baby-boom generation, born between 1946 and 1964. Also the technology has been grown and a lot of celebrities have rose around the world. So that also may lead to this. Anyway 2016 wasnt same as the years before. What are your thoughts? Thanks for reading

I think the pace of passings is about the same as usual. It just that there have been more high profile celebrities like Bowie and Prince. Many lesser known actors pass with little fanfare.

The others get a nod or two But their fans whose lives they've touched miss them just the same. Don't need a whole lot of fanfare all the time. It's the lives they've touched.

God knows why. We all have to leave this world. Our time here is temporary. Sometimes deaths comes in waves.

Yeah I too believe that God knows why. Maybe their purpose on this world has ended as @Shavkat said.

For sure, we can never tell how and when life ends. It happens for a reason and his or her purpose in this world has ended.

I feel the same way! It is such a shame and to think that we are just about halfway to 2016 - there's still a lot of things to happen!

I feel like it's just this generation. There were so many of them and with the growing technology, like you said, more people knew about them.

This year like many others has seen the sudden lost of some of our most cherished and talented performers. David Bowie and Prince, two very creative and dynamic men in one year makes us think twice. They left an indelible mark on us that will always remain. Things just won't be the same without them, their creativity, and their energy.

Agree with you. None can replace them. They will be always in people's heart.
