Michelle Pfeiffer shared her memories of Coolio on Instagram, and her memory is clearly heartfelt. Far from a typical standard publicist statement, Pfeiffer penned a relatively lengthy post mourning the late artist. “Heartbroken to hear of the death of gifted artist @coolio. A life that is far too short,” said Pfeiffer. She even credited Coolio with the commercial success of “Dangerous Minds,” in which she starred as LouAnne Johnson, a former US Marine who takes a job teaching at an inner-city California high school and changes her life for initially troubled students.
“As some of you may know, I was fortunate enough to work with him on Dangerous Minds in 1995. He won a Grammy for his brilliant song on the soundtrack – which I think is why our film was so successful,” she continued. “I remember he was nothing but lovely. 30 years later I still get chills when I hear the song. Sending love and light to his family. Rest in force Artis Leon Ivey Jr. ❤️”
It’s a touching tribute from one of Coolio’s most memorable employees, and one that should bring a particularly bittersweet pain to all Coolio fans as they mourn the loss of the iconic rap star.
