Mariah Carey is opening up about the death of her friend Prince and she says she’ll “never get over” the loss.
“I’ve loved Prince since I first heard him and then later in life I got to know him. He helped me through so many moments where I needed somebody to guide me through,” Mariah said in an interview with ET‘s Carly Steel. “[He was] just a true genius… There will never be anybody else like him.”
“There will never be anybody else like him and it’s such a loss that he’s gone now because he could have been one of those people that we see every year and we get excited because it’s Prince,” she added. “I will never get over it. I didn’t think I was going to be able to do the show tonight.”
Mariah performed a concert in Paris on Thursday night (April 21) just hours after finding out about the death. She dedicated “One Sweet Day” to him during the show and said Prince didn’t like people covering his songs.

Adele gave a shout-out to one of her favorite singers during her London concert this week and it was none other than Mariah Carey!
The 27-year-old singer was talking about how it would be ridiculous to wear a shirt with her face on it and then segued into talking about Mariah.
“Did you read that article the other day where Mariah Carey called the lighting abusive?” Adele said. “She is so biblical that lady. It’s a joke. I absolutely adore her. I love her. I think she should be in the bible.”
Coincidentally, Mariah was performing in the same venue one night later and when a fan pointed that out, Adele joked that she should leave a note for her!
The comment that Adele was referencing came from Mariah‘s interview with the Sunday Times.
“I have to point out this is a rented house — I would never have overhead lighting. High hats, they call them,” Mariah said during the interview. “In my apartment in New York, it’s all recessed lighting, chandeliers, candles. This lighting is abusive.”
