He was really playful and really sweet. What a talented man, what an artist. I think it’s a terrible loss that he should go at such a young age, its incredibly sad." Kate Bush remembers her friend Prince, who died in April (16). The pair worked together on the song Why Should I Love You from Bush's 1993 album The Red Shoes.
Quote: "I am so sad and shocked to hear the tragic news about Prince. He was the most incredibly talented artist. A man in complete control of his work from writer and musician to producer and director. He was such an inspiration. Playful and mind-blowingly gifted. He was the most inventive and extraordinary live act I've seen. The world has lost someone truly magical. Goodnight dear Prince." Kate Bush adds her tribute to Prince on her website.

He created such staggeringly brilliant work, yes, but so much of it - and it was so good. There are great people who make great work but who else has left a mark like his...? Whatever journey his beautiful soul is now on, I hope he can somehow feel how much we all miss him." Reclusive singer Kate Bush remembers the late rocker in a rare public statement published in Britain's Guardian newspaper. Bowie passed away on 10 January (16), aged 69.

Smith is baffled by Kate Bush's comeback. The Wuthering Heights hitmaker is in the midst of a 22-date run of concerts in London.
Tweet: "I hope you all enjoyed the remix of Running Up That Hill this evening at the Olympics Closing Ceremony. They certainly put on a brilliant show." Singer Kate Bush was a big fan of the Olympics finale, which featured her hit Running Up That Hill.
