It's heartbreaking to hear that a celebrity you may have idolized has died. It hurts even more when it's in a sudden, tragic way and in a way that wasn't caused by the celebrity themselves. It kind of makes you realize just how short and unpredictable life is.

We took a look at some of the most devastating celebrity deaths and remembered them for these celebs' accomplishments. Were you affected by any of these deaths? COMMENT and let us know. 


1. The world was shocked to hear about the death of Selena. 

She was one of the most popular Mexican-American singers and one of the most influential Latin artists of all time. She was just 23 years old when she was murdered. 

She was shot by the former president of her fan club in 1995 at a Days Inn motel.

The two had been in a heated argument over missing finances. Her death really was a tragedy, and people still remember her to this day.

2. Paul Walker was famous for his role as Brian O'Conner in The Fast and the Furious franchise.  

He had a daughter, Meadow Walker, whose godfather is Vin Diesel. I remember hearing about his death and thinking it was a hoax at first. I honestly couldn't believe it.


Paul died in a single vehicle collision in 2013. 

Reports say that the accident could've been caused by the car going too fast. Vin Diesel recently shared this picture of him and his daughter with Paul watching over them. The caption read, "always…."

3. It's no doubt that Michael Jackson was the King of Pop. 

He holds multiple Grammy Award records and had 29 Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Like any celebrity, he had his share of controversies, but he was widely admired by fans.
