    Dude he had the wrong people around him. The fact that most of them pushed for him to just take meds and carry on was not the right thing to do. It’s so sad you can see it in his eyes he needed a rest.

    I find him so familiar so so understand him ... damn sad he isn’t here with us anymore . I’m afraid I’m not gonna make it myself . Anxiety is horrible and brings other things . I’m not gonna make it damn ☹️. If he didn’t then I won’t for sure . I hope I make it past this night

    It's come to my realisation that when somebody has something to offer the world, the world cannot stop asking for more, it's true with musicians, artists, authors, actors and more, it's like the world stops seeing them as people and just as a gift that keeps on giving. Humans just always want more.

    Why Avicii travelled to Oman? Why did he leave his hotel? Why he was not with friends, girlfriend or bodyguard? Did sweedish police conform that what Oman police said to be true? Why his family travelled to Oman? Did the family find out anything or were there questions unanshwered.

    He was murdered for exposing pedophelia. Some day those that killed him will pay in the next life their demons are waiting to torture them. Don't for a second think that you're getting away with it. Repent And change before its late!

    Yes, he told them, but they never really cared. They were just along for the show as long as it lasted. They killed this sweet lovely boy, who had a whole life ahead of him.

    The management team led him to suicide (4:18), imagine living always with these people that constantly whistle you to go the shows only to receive their pay check. It's obvious pretty clear that the management team had no interest giving him a break. It would be better if one of Avicii family member was in the management team with him, because in an artis's life is very important to find the right people that let you success and that care of you. If they only respected his anxiety attacks and helped him as pure humans,now he will be here to make us dream. You'll be always in my heart, your truly fan. Stay in peace

    I still don't get it! How despacito has so many views instead of Avicii! And his management is TRASH, he needed a break and his management 'needed' money. I mean I am super sad for Avicii and super mad for his management

    Only leeches surrounded him, when you got fame... sadly at a young age and you dont have real friends... the leeches will come... and suck you dry... and end you ... and after that they will curse your name and speak poising about you... sad to see this happen... R.I.P.

  • Kerylyn kally - gallimore

    I honestly don't think he meant to take his life when he said when you're playing with the feeling of dying , It makes me feel he was trying to find something to connect to make him feel alive , I pray for his soul 🌞

    Guys i understand how this looks to you and how you are all against his management because of what happened,but as an artist myself i can tell you that once you get as big as Avicii ITS NOT that easy to just quit everything in one day..There are contracts,there is press,there are events scheduled like a year before,people who bought tickets,organizers who put a lot of money on this,a lot of promotion,there was a whole team working with Avicii for all these..there are many things you dont understand...You just canot cancel everything in 1 day when you are as big as avicii was..Yes we all feel like why you cant,why people dont understand that he wanted rest from all these and why he just cannot quit in 1 day? but Once you get booked for all those big events and festivals,once you sign those contracts ,once the organizers pay all these money for promotion and everything,once you become that big..you cant just go and cancel everything in 1 day..
    I mean we all love Avicii of course and i am very sad for what happened to this amazing and very talented person,but his management did the best they could to cancel as much shows,interviews as possible as you can see in the video, so avicii can slowly get out of this....and "slowly getting out of this" was the only way out unfortunately when you are as big and famous as Avicii was.

    Truly saddened by the way his management was pushing him, all they cared about was the money Tim (Avicii) was making them, very disgusted by them. He was ILL if they let him recover, he would be with us today. I can see why he took his life, too much pressure for a Young ill person.
    To his family sorry for your loss. To his managers 🖕🖕🖕

    I haven't watched the documentary, but did they say anything about autism?
    I watched a docu about him while at the peak of his career and he obviously showed some autistic patterns.

    It's our fault he died. He wanted to quit but we pushed him to keep going. He did his shows even though he hates them, but he hid those feelings while he performed. Not many people will do that. He was one of few kind souls in this generation. We need more people like him, not the spoiled entitled people we are now who only care about social media and status.

    I've been doing anxiety for 2 years now and I swear to god, watching this is depressing me. People that don't have anxiety will NEVER be able to relate at all. They should of never threat him like that. His face at 2:40 just says how bad he felt and how frustated he was. RIP AVICII, never be forgotten
