Dev Hynes, a.k.a. Blood Orange, was doing great. His most recent album, Cupid Deluxe, was a commercial and critical success, appearing in multiple best-of-2013 lists. But last night, the unthinkable happened: he lost everything in a horrible New York City apartment fire, including “scores, hard drives…..clothes, sentimental items. Everything from my life is gone. My dog died in the fire. I will love you forever Cupid. I miss you.”
His girlfriend’s mother has set up a GoFundMe to help Hynes get through his tragic time. “Please donate if you can,” she writes. “Even a dollar will help.” In only two hours, the account has already reached its intended goal of $50,000, and then some. Do it for Cupid.
