The 2013 radio hit Wake Me Up isn’t just a catchy song; it’s also what Avicii fans are no doubt feeling after hearing this sad news. The Associated Press is reporting that 28-year-old Swedish DJ and producer Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, was found dead in Muscat, Oman.
His publicist released the following statement confirming the news:
“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”
Police are still investigating his death. Avicii has suffered in the past with acute pancreatitis, which was in part caused by excessive drinking. In 2014, he had his gallbladder and appendix removed. He quit touring in 2016, but continued to make music in studio and was one of the highest-paid DJs in the world. Avicii began producing music at 16, and started touring when he was 18. He told Billboard in 2016:
“When I look back on my life, I think: whoa, did I do that? It was the best time of my life in a sense. It came with a price – a lot of stress, a lot of anxiety for me – but it was the best journey of my life.”
He’s collaborated with many, including Madonna and Coldplay. Avicii has been nominated for two Grammy awards, two MTV Europe Music Awards, and one Billboard Music Award, which he just received a few days ago. He was also the subject of a documentary released last year titled Avicii: True Stories, which happened to touch on his health issues and struggles with fame. Many of Avicii’s peers in the EDM and dance world have expressed their condolences for his passing.
Devastating news about Avicii, a beautiful soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do. My heart goes out to his family. God bless you Tim x

This is a real, true gone-but-not-forgotten situation. Because even though Avicii is no longer with us on Earth, his music will remain. Specifically his song “Levels.” It’s everywhere, always. Every mall, every club, every Spring Break. I’m almost sure it’s the unofficial soundtrack to being inside an Uber on a Saturday night.
Rest in peace, Avicii.
After an accident left Carrie Underwood with a bum wrist and 40 to 50 stitches in her face, she hid her visage from the world so that no one would recoil in horror at how hideously disfigured she was. In reality, she basically continued to look like Carrie Underwood. But it was a traumatic event for her, and she recently told the story of how it all happened. She also says her “big reveal” wasn’t supposed to be so dramatic.
During an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Highway yesterday, host Storme Warren mentioned that her performance of her new single “Cry Pretty” at the Academy of Country Music Awards last Sunday was also billed as the big reveal of her healed face. Carrie says that was unintentional, and that her accident just happened to happen right after the CMAs in November. Storme then asked what happened, and Carrie described it.
Carrie took her two dogs, Ace and Penny, out for their last bathroom break that evening. She tripped, and in a moment of panic clutched onto the dogs’ leashes with her left hand and landed on her right wrist after missing a small step. She says if she had fallen anywhere else, she probably would have been fine, but it was just that one step that messed everything up.
When she got up, she took a look at what had happened. She figured it wasn’t too bad, but the results were the opposite. She had a chipped tooth, a broken wrist, and her face was torn open. She was taken into surgery and got dozens of stiches. She adds that she wasn’t sure how her face would heal, and that’s why she revealed to her fan club that she could potentially look a little different.
In a different interview with The Bobby Bones Show, Carrie said she’s got a scar that goes from her nose to her mouth and she covers it up with spackle.
But she’s pretty much back to normal now. The only question still left unanswered to me was what her dogs did when she fell. Did Ace and Penny jump into action like littlest hobos, with Ace heroically propping himself up under Carrie’s wrist as a splint while brave Penny ran for help? Or did Ace and Penny start licking themselves and wonder what was taking their human so long to feed them their pre-beddies Snausage yet. Only Ace and Penny’s guilty pup faces will tell the truth.
