Tributes have quickly flooded in for pop superstar Prince, after the 57-year-old was found dead at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota.

Television pictures from the scene on Thursday showed fans gathering across the road from his home in the rain, with a number of dark-coloured cars parked inside property.

Celebrities and fans alike, turned to social media to share their disbelief and grief, with Chic frontman Nile Rodgers tweeting: "RIP our dearly beloved Prince. Tears and love on our tour bus ... I'll never forget my brother. We've had good times."

Madonna, who collaborated with Prince on Love Song on her album Like A Prayer, posted a picture of the two of them together on Instagram, writing: "He Changed The World!! A True Visionary. What a loss. I'm Devastated."

Chaka Khan posted a picture of herself with Prince, adding: "I LOVED him, the world LOVED him. Now he's at peace with his Father. Rest in power, @prince, my brother."

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood wrote: "I will miss a good friend who was so talented. He was such a great performer/guitar player. Sleep well Prince."

Music producer Quincy Jones tweeted: "RIP to @prince ... a true artist in every sense of the word. Gone way too soon."

Film director Spike Lee wrote on Instagram: "I Miss My Brother. Prince Was A Funny Cat. Great Sense Of Humor."

Model Iman, who lost her husband David Bowie earlier this year, wrote: "So sad to hear of Prince's passing; one of the greatest musical talents of my lifetime. Maybe of the 20th century. RIP."

Justin Timberlake wrote a heartfelt post on Instagram, writing: "They say don't meet your idols ... That they let you down. But, some of my greatest, funniest (yes, he was hilarious), and most prolific encounters and conversations about music came from the moments that I spent with him.

"It would be silly to say that he has inspired our music ... It's beyond that. He's somewhere within every song I've ever written."

The Rev Jesse Jackson praised Prince for fighting for the freedom of artists and for himself, calling him "a transformer".
