Stars Who Passed Away in 2017

Each year, we must say goodbye to beloved celebrities and iconic entertainers.

While 2016 proved to be a devastating year of loss in the entertainment industry — from David Bowie to Prince to George Michael — there are a number of people we've already had to say goodbye to in 2017, and 21-year-old hip hop/emo pioneer Lil Peep's untimely death is just the latest tragedy.

In loving memory of these incredible stars, we pay tribute to each of them in the gallery above.
