In an emotional interview with LaPalme Magazine, Carmen recalled her special friendship, mentorship, and even brief romance with the late singer. It's about the second time Ms. Electra has provided her thoughts on the singer following his tragic death late last month.
While the beauty's first sit down about the musician was full of shock and grief, she decided this time around to focus on more happier memories like their first meeting as well as the 57-year-old's unmatched generosity.
According to the model, the pair's first encounter was actually pretty "awkward" due to her shyness and Prince's quite nature. Let's just say the meeting wasn't electric!

The big-screen reboot has been trying to bait the OG lifeguard babe for quite a while. Last month, Pam admitted she would love to reprise her role in the film — if the production offered her a "more respectable" paycheck.
Well, it looks like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson made the bombshell an offer she couldn't refuse — because the actress is now OFFICIALLY on board!
On Thursday, The Rock made the announcement on his Instagram, calling her character CJ Parker "one of the most iconic characters of a generation," sharing:
On Thursday, Carmen talked to E! News about the icon's death and their relationship over the years. Apparently these two have a LONG and complex history together.

While the pair ended as friends, Electra first met the artist while auditioning for a girl group he was starting. Even though the beauty didn't get the role, he offered her a solo career instead.
Recalling that special moment, C.E. revealed:
"I received a call from Prince saying I think you should be your own artist and not back up anyone else. I'm going to write you a song and if you like it, you can record it. The name of the song was 'Carmen on Top.' My name is Tara, so I was confused. I loved the song. I loved it, but he said, 'You're not a Tara. You're not Tara. You're Carmen. He controlled everything, but I loved that about him," she told E! News. "How I dressed, the music, hairstyles. He was genius at all that."
Wow! We had no idea Prince gave Carmen her moniker!
Not only did the legend play a part in her career, he also played a role in her love life. The dated briefly before eventually calling it off due to their diverging futures.
Speaking on their ill-timed romance, Electra explained:
"I told him I wanted to live in LA and he spent as much time here as he did in Minnesota. He wanted me to move back to Minnesota and I said no. I broke it off with him and stayed in LA. I gave up everything with him to live here and make my own career. It was a hard time. I ended up calling him and he hired me to dance at his club in LA. I made $90 a week. I wasn't his girlfriend anymore, but I was one of his girls. This was after we split. His brother once told me Prince was looking at rings when I was still in Minnesota and that he was going to propose to me. I was so excited and in love. One day, Prince asked me if I wanted to work or be a housewife. I said I want to work. I was only 19 or 20 and he ended up never asking me to marry him. But, I was with him every day. I needed to leave and be my own person."
Aww. This sounds like a classic case of wanting different things.
