In a year that was seen as the worst ever for celebrity deaths, we lost Carrie Fisher.
The actress never shied away from the fact that she lived life to the full, proudly talking about her party antics and having no regrets. New revelations made by her close friend James Blunt, however, appear to show that the Star Wars heroine 'predicted her own death'.
Blunt stayed at Fisher's LA home while recording his cult album Back to Bedlam, the Daily Mail reports, and he claims that she'd written the date of her death on a cardboard cutout of her galactic character, Princess Leia.
"She put a cardboard cutout of herself as Leia outside my room with her date of birth and date of death on her forehead," the 'You're Beautiful' singer told the Sunday Times. Blunt can't remember the exact date she'd written, but says that he reckons it was around the time of her death, if not a bit early.
Back to Bedlam was recorded back in 2003, and released in 2004, meaning that Fisher made her 'correct prediction' around 13 years prior to her death.
The singer used a piano at the 60-year-old's house to record 'Goodbye My Lover', and kept in touch with Fisher, keeping a close relationship, even making her the godmother of his child.
Blunt himself made a prediction not too long ago, as for what is in store for 2017.
We all have our opinions of the musician, with the most popular being that he is infinitely annoying and his only contribution to this world is that of ear-bleeding music.
However, on the contrary to that, I reckon everyone can confess to at least once in their life being drunk and belting out a track from Back to Bedlam. It's weird how it works.
Despite his status as an irritating figure to the masses, he is a rather funny bloke and receives a lot of plaudits for his activity on Twitter.
He's extremely self-deprecating, accepting that his music isn't all that popular, and, with that in mind, delivered some news for 2017.
If you thought 2016 was bad - I'm releasing an album in 2017.

Good grief, whatever will we do?
By his own admission he is the living 'proof that one song is all you need'. So, maybe he's just going to cover, remix, reverse, rap and whistle 'You're Beautiful'.
