At the young age of 33, singer and U.K media staple Stephen Gately died this weekend while on vacation in Majorca. Gately had achieved huge success as a member of the band Boyzone in the 1990s with four No. 1 albums, and was working with the band on an album to be released in 2010. He also stayed in the spotlight with a variety of other gigs, including a stint on Dancing on Ice. Gately publicly announced he was gay at the height of his success in 1999—unheard of at the time for a boy band member—and later was married in a civil partnership in London. No cause of death has been made public.
