Prince helped launch Carmen Electra's career, even gracing her with the moniker Carmen in place of her real name, Tara Leigh Patrick. She released a statement to ET about the difficult lost of her longtime friend.
"I was so shocked and heart broken to hear about the loss of my mentor, Prince," she said. "The world has lost a truly incredible spirit and musical genius. What a blessing it is to be one of the chosen ones who had the chance to work so closely with him. He gave me my name, he believed in me, and he has inspired an entire generation. I will always love him... 'Sometimes It Snows In April.'"
