I think if you’re very young it’s possible to cry and get upset. As you get older you realize people die and the world goes on. As an adult I’m more concerned with my life & responsibilities than to be concerned about a celebrity dying. I’ll feel sad for a little while but that’s about it.

The last celebrity death that made me cry was Elliott Smith's, but only once, when I saw the shocking news. I haven't listened much to his music since he died, though. It didn't seem so depressing when he was still alive and fighting. Now it just mades me sad to hear him.

I don't know about cry for days, but the death of Prince, David Bowie, and several others have made me cry. I don't know why some people find it so weird that some people get emotional over celebrity deaths.
It's the loss of someone who brought a unique talent or voice into the world, and will never be heard new again. But probably more so, particularly musicians, what they did brings memories that connects with time, places, and people they knew while those things were playing in the background. It isn't just the artist, it's everything that goes along with enjoying what they've created. If it's someone you've been listening to for most of your life, it is sort of like having your life flash before your eyes.

The Challenger astronauts, because the launch had been so publicized and the footage of them getting ready to depart, looking so hopeful. It was just sickening.
Not celebrities, but the bombing,of the USS Cole in Yemen 11 months less one day before 9-11. I knew one of the dead sailors pretty well, we'd worked together and he had a bright future ahead of him. Left a wife and three kids. The rest of the dead were all youngsters, junior sailors with their whole lives ahead of them, and one ensign who'd started as an enlisted man. I was out of the Navy by then, but it felt like a personal attack. 9-11 hadn't happened, terrorism for most Americans meant Oklahoma City. We were complacent.

Yeah, I’ll probably cry when the Queen dies. End of an era. Sue me.
The idea that people would cry over the death of a famous person is not new. People sometimes cry because of what that person symbolizes, not the person themselves. Robin Williams = a person who made us all laugh, while secretly feeling very sad and alone. A lot of people thought he deserved a more comfortable death after all the happiness he’d given others.
Princess Diana = I cried when I saw her two young sons walk behind her casket, and the flower arrangement with the sign, “Mummy.” I knew that was from her sons. It symbolized young kids losing the most important person in their lives. My own mother died fairly young and I remembered how devastated I felt. But they were younger still.
I’ve seen pictures of buildings in Washington draped black upon the death of Lincoln. There was a great outpouring of grief for him. He symbolized a man who gave everything to his country and was worn out, and ultimately gave his life as well. People respected his sacrifice.
Here’s probably the greatest tribute I’ve seen: a white, wealthy, privileged man, mourned by a black man of simple means, because his death symbolized the end of a champion of the working class. Someone who had worked himself to death in an effort to make his own life a little bit fairer, a champion of the poor and persecuted. A father figure to all, guiding the country through one calamity to the next, never letting go until the country was near safe harbor at last. Many Americans could remember no other President. There had always been this warm and reassuring fatherly figure keeping them safe. And that extraordinary man was gone, to be replaced by some mediocrity (Truman, as it turned out). An era was over.
