Avicii’s Family Suggests That He Committed Suicide
Although no official cause of death has been released yet, the family of Swedish DJ Avicii released a new statement that seems to suggest that he committed suicide, noting “he could not go on any longer.”
“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress,” the statement reads. “When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music. He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer.”
The statement adds, “He wanted to find peace. Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.”
Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead in Oman on April 20th. He was just 28.

Kelly Clarkson Discusses Her “Bossy” Kids
There’s no doubt Kelly Clarkson has some adorable kids but apparently they can also be kind of “bossy.”
During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Kelly shares that daughter River Rose likes to take charge, explaining that she had actually just given Kelly’s sister a tour of Ellen’s studio. Kelly notes, “She showed my sister around and my sister came back and was like, ‘I think she thinks she's like a head of this building.'"
She’s also quite a boss when it comes to her little brother Remington. “She'll push him down and think like we won't figure it out, like how was he standing and now he is on the ground?" Kelly says. He gets back at her by basically punching her. As Kelly notes, "We did tell her, ‘Girl he's gonna get older and he's gonna start pushing back and doing stuff,' and literally it was like two weeks later, older happened."
And while she doesn’t necessarily like the idea of how Remy is defending himself, Kelly adds, "if she knocks him, I'm like, ‘Well, you asked for it.'"
