Considering how influential the 57-year-old was in her life, the dancer

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.

So, what do YOU think of the 44-year-old's claims?

Prince's Ex-Wife Mayte Garcia Declares She'll Love Him 'Eternally'

What a heartbreaking time for Mayte Garcia.

In a statement to People Magazine, Prince's ex-wife reacted to the icon's death and her expressed her deepest sorrow. The two were married in 1996 but had been together since 1990.

While Garcia and the musician were very much in love, their relationship ended in 2000 after Garcia's miscarriage. The miscarriage occurred just after the bellydancer gave birth to Boy Gregory, the couple's infant son who died of a rare skull defect just a week after he was born.

Despite the pain, the beauty never stopped loving her ex which is clearly evident in the following statement:

"I can't even think of the words of what I'm feeling. This man was my everything, we had a family. I am beyond deeply saddened and devastated. I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now."

So sad.

Mayte's public message echoes an interview she gave just last year about their magical union:

"I remember our first kiss, and thinking, ‘Oh God, oh wow, this is not happening!' I remember it being overwhelming and weird. Our entire time together was amazing and surreal, and he showed me some incredible things and introduced me to incredible people. All the songs he wrote for me, that's a pretty hard act to follow. I've dated a couple of guys, musicians, who have written me poems or songs and I'm like, ‘Seriously, don't even go there. You can't compete! But I think I'm now screwed for life because my first relationship was the most bizarre relationship ever and I'm not normal any more. I've kind-of been spoiled and I guess I am kind-of screwed-up now."

Well, we hope M.G. is able to find peace in this difficult time. At least she'll always have wonderful memories to cherish.

Stay strong, girl.
