(CNN)Goodbye to a Prince. Hello to a (general) election. It's Friday, and here are the 5 things you need to know to Get Up to Speed and Out the Door.

1. Prince

The words genius and icon are thrown around way too often. But they're the only ones you use to describe the decade-defining, label-defying Prince. The Purple One died yesterday, sparking an outpouring of grief felt the world over. Fans gathered at his Paisley Park complex near Minneapolis, celebs tweeted their condolences, landmarks across the nation were bathed in purple, even President Obama noted his passing. It was unclear what caused his death, but an autopsy is scheduled for today. Here's a recap of his last days.

    2. Campaign 2016

    More than a month remains in the primary contests, but the two front runners have clearly turned their attention to the general. The Donald's campaign is making nice with the GOP, telling party insiders yesterday he's ready to "evolve" as a candidate. Meanwhile, in Hillaryland, the ex-secretary of state has taken a hands-off approach to Bernie Sanders since her New York triumph. Gone are the pokes at Uncle Bernie over issues like guns. That's been replaced with a message of "love and kindness."

    3. FBI-Apple

    So how much did it cost the FBI to break into the iPhone of terrorist Syed Farook? FBI Director James Comey didn't give an exact figure, but strongly hinted that it was somewhere north of a million dollars. That money secured a "tool" from a private company that was used to access the phone. Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 people in December in an ISIS-inspired attack in San Bernandino, California.

    4. Rio Olympics

    Rio's Olympic organizers must be numb, as the headlines in advance of the Games are less than ideal: The country's president has been impeached. The Zika virus is scaring the hell out of everyone. Now part of a new seaside bike path -- the result of an effort to spruce up Rio's image before the Games -- has collapsed, killing two people. It raises new fears that Rio won't be able to successfully put the Games on.

    5. Fatal high school fight

    Once upon a time, parents actually felt their children were safe in school. Two decades of school shootings have shattered that feeling, but people still expressed shock at the death yesterday of a 16-year-old girl during a fight in a high school bathroom. Authorities in Wilmington, Delaware, said the fight started with two people but others soon joined in. No charges have been filed yet, but two students have been questioned.
