You have become caught up in a strange set of expectations, somehow you have bought the media's idea that people should be deeply bereaved by the death, probably related to drug abuse, in a distant land, of someone you never met ( you only heard him and saw him on heavily edited music videos ). What, actually, have you lost ? He hasn't made any real music for years, and was highly unlikely to do so anyway. It's sad to think of someone with real talent who allowed himself to get lost within his weirdness and became too rich for his own good, so he could afford to get people to give him drugs that were dangerous and bad for him. But no useful purpose is served by weeping for him --- frankly, he would never have wept for you. Learn from how his life self-destructed how we should all avoid following his example. It looked as though he made his life miserable for years now, so at least he can no longer suffer. Be content about that.
There will be more good music from other talented people, there has been, for hundreds of years. There will be other good singers, too. Some people felt like this when Elvis died, when John Lennon was killed. But they soon moved on and learned to enjoy the music which you can have as long as you live and to find other good music , as well.
If you really find it too hard to face this realistically, consider seeing a counsellor for a couple of sessions, to get things into perspective. You don' have to allow this to get to you in this way. Maybe put his music aside for a few months, till you fel stronger, and avoid reading about him for the same time. COme back to it when you can enjoy it without sadness.
