In 2016 – the annus horribilis of pop – the death of music artists such as David Bowie, George Michael and Prince produced a prodigious amount of commemorative initiatives, both spontaneously and within the media and celebrity worlds, with an impressive level of online expressions of grief. Addressing these three cases within the framework of social generation studies, celebrity theory and death studies, the paper proposes some hypotheses on the role that the death of celebrities plays in the construction of generational identity as “discursive articulation” where specific media practices/representations (in our case, mourning practices) play a crucial role in making generational narratives group together around shared symbolic and semantic cores.
