Mariah Carey is the latest musician to grace the cover of Complex. And, in addition to talking about her new reality show Mariah’s World as well as her 26-year journey as a pop star, Carey also spoke about the musician who inspired her the most – the late funk legend Prince.

“Prince was one of the best people I’ve met,” Mimi reveals. “He didn’t care about the big system.”

She continued, “I was always like, at any time Prince could write a No. 1 song, because he’s that talented, but he chooses to do what he wants. I respect that. He actually helped me through a lot of situations with his knowledge. He always had a plan. I just can’t believe he’s gone. I was hoping that it was a trick that he was pulling—that it didn’t really happen.”
