Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith Wrote The Most Touching Tributes To Prince

"He showed me early the power of living one's life by one's own rules and no one else's."

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are "stunned and heartbroken" after the death of legendary singer and icon, Prince. 

Will, who said he'd spoken with the singer only a day before he died, penned a moving tribute to Prince, calling him "one of the most magnificent artists to ever grace this earth." 

In a separate tribute, Jada remembered Prince's "magical" personality and the impact he had on her career. 

"Prince was one of the first artists to put me on game in regard to the industry," Jada wrote. "He was not only a genius artist, he was kind, funny, beautifully eccentric, curious, imaginative, magical, spiritual, rebellious and extremely intelligent. He showed me early the power of living one's life by one's own rules and no one else's." 

Pinkett Smith continued, "There are really no words to express what we have all lost today. To quote my friend Paress, 'Music has lost its heart beat. Rest in peace Beauty.'"

Prince was found dead at his Minneapolis home on Thursday. Countless celebrities have paid their respects to the artist who impacted so many, while international tributes to the Prince have popped up around the globe.
