subjectively - it certainly seems like 2016 had the most celebrity deaths of any year... ever? Gotta wonder if thats just due to having more celebrities around, or what.. but yeh - shit was crazy
I wonder if someone counted it all up and did some comparative research
It probably is more. There are definitely more celebs than ever before.
I think one thing that's happening this year is that a bunch of very
famous celebs died younger than expected, so the impact is greater than usual.
Also, these are the celebs of our generation, the celebs we grew up watching and listening to. It's going to be more shocking to us than when Elizabeth Taylor or Paul Newman passed away. I expect it to continue in this vein somewhat.
