10:00 am
call today. hey, everybody, it is friday, april 22nd, 2016. our set is in purple because we're remembering the music icon prince that passed away at the young age of 57. i am joined by jenna bush hager.
10:01 am
>> don't you love it? >> he has those songs when you hear one puts you in exactly at a place, exactly at a time. they talk about the sound track of your youth. >> yes, i was a child of the '80s and '90s, i was going to bed like so many people, going through as many finds, henry and i and jamming out. prince, that was prince, all these songs. i was sort of young. i didn't even know. >> you cannot believe how many became the sound track. i went into the park this morning, prince is on all of the itunes things. i played and went through song after song. i was running, i saw someone running the other way, i heard 1999. i thought oh, my gosh, they're singing it going the other way. >> said on the metro subway home, there's wi-fi. i am like you're on the subway? we can talk? so bizarre.
10:02 am
many people were watching a youtube video or listening to some of his music. >> it was such shocking news that most of us learned about yesterday afternoon. this is a statement from his publicist. it is with profound sadness that i am confirming the legendary iconic performer prince rogers nelson has died at his paisley park residence this morning at the age of 57. right now, there's an autopsy being conducted to answer all of the questions as to why. i think what's so confuse to go his fans and things, over the last several days, people have seen him out and about in his hometown of minneapolis. he was out riding a bike with a friend and a woman described how -- she asked him if they could take a picture, saw him about town. he was at a club, a jazz club. he was somebody that really sort of loved his hometown community. personally, i mean, i loved prince, i didn't know he lived in minneapolis. >> i love that he lived in
10:03 am
where he was from. we all have a fondness where you're from, but he stayed there. >> didn't feel like he had to go to l.a. or to new york to be in the music scene, he was the music scene. he didn't feel like he had to create it. elly reed was on, head of epic records, he was close to prince. he spoke to matt. matt asked about the mystery surrounding prince's sudden death. look at what he said. >> did you have any clue that things were wrong with him health wise? >> no. >> any health issues? >> the thing that bothers me about it is the prince i know was like super healthy, vegan, wasn't an abuser of drugs, wasn't abuser of alcohol, he lived right, you know, and he was clean and looked young, healthy, vibrant. the whole thing is very mysterious to me. >> so many people said he was very health conscious. there were reports a few days
10:04 am
club in atlanta, did two sets. everyone said he was amazing at that concert. he gets on a plane. he was supposed to go home. they had to make an emergency stop in moline, illinois, i thought wow, he landed there. nbc news is citing sources reporting he was unconscious when he landed. however, he got medical help, went home, showed up at some event there when he got home, said hey, i'm good, that kind of thing. >> he played. we have seen this, read this over and over, he played multiple shows. sometimes two shows a night. in order to do that, and he danced and played instruments. you have to be in pretty good shape. >> i think there are so many fascinating things about him. we love his music, learn these things when someone passes, but he was prolific in every instrument, that he learned how to play the piano the guitar, and the drums.
10:05 am
on his record he was the one played them all. not only that, self-taught. what a genius. >> he really was. matt was also talking about prince's personality. take a look at what he said. >> being in his presence was a little intimidating. >> i was always nervous interviewing. >> what was he like in person? >> same, i am in the room with prince, i am nervous. i'm in a room with prince. he is looking at me like pipe down, we got to talk here. i was always in awe of him. it was something special. i didn't get shyness, what i got was theater and mystery, you know. like he didn't love talking to the media. i know he loved talking to you, he wasn't a big fan of talking to media. in private, he could go. >> that tells you so much about him. there are fans across the country and globe who are crying and miss him and loved his music so much because it meant so much to their lives, but i think it
10:06 am
realize how little we knew about his life. >> that makes his music even more powerful. we have seen fans outside his home in minneapolis that have come from all walks of life. >> natalie was out there earlier. along the whole fence, you saw people, it started off like one by one by one. by the time natalie got there, the place was full. you can tell that everybody who loved prince came from every walk of life. all you have to do is look at the crowds. >> we realize how much we didn't know about him, he was this enig ma. yet people connected maybe not through his personal story but through his music. >> at new york, this is in front of spike lee's place, he threw a dance party. it was huge and epic. people were really celebrating him. many buildings across the world were bathed in purple light in honor of prince, the eiffel
10:07 am
and the foreman in california. we loved his music. you say prince's name, first thing you think of are the songs. we picked different songs. i don't know what order we put them in. >> now we really don't. what were your favorite songs? >> i loved kiss, that one was such a great song. >> can we listen or see? >> maybe we are going to have them. don't have to be rich to be my girl ain't no particular sign. i am more compatible with, i want your extra time and your kiss. >> that song, i love that song. reminds me of pretty woman. julia roberts in the tub. >> when she had the walkman on!
10:08 am
raspberry beret, the kind you find in a secondhand store raspberry beret. >> do you remember dancing to these? >> you know where i was, i was at the sigma ki house, i remember sweaty dancing to them all. how about "when doves cry" alone in a world that's so cold maybe i'm just too demanding, maybe i'm just like my father. >> how about you, what did you like? >> i love 1999. >> this is like a staple wedding song, everything. >> and i graduated in 2000, i remember looking up to the class above me, being you have a theme song! you have a theme song! and of course, how can you
10:09 am
>> some of the best tweets are people tweeting a picture of rain drops. purple rain. >> you know who knows a lot about this era of music is elvis durant from z 100. he is broadcasting the show from the dominican republic this morning. we have him on the phone. hey, elvis! >> hey, hoda, hey jenna. >> elvis, when you heard the news. >> this is a number one story today, and hoda and jenna are singing with the prince classics, it is special. this is fabulous. >> elvis, when you think about his impact, look, you have been on the music scene, watched artists come and go, prince is one of those people that seemed to have touched almost every artist we heard of. you see it in tweets, you know it from their work. >> absolutely. i don't think we would have the same performances from bruno mars that we have without prince
10:10 am
think about the theatrics he brings to the stage. another thing you have to remember, hoda and jenna, remember the artist formerly known as prince, when he was fighting back at the record label because he wanted to be independent? now you have artists doing it because he paved the way for that. they're not going by the rules that the record company tell them they have to go by. he did more than we give him credit for doing. a fabulous artist. dangerous, fantastic. loved it. >> did you ever think most of the artists we know their personal lives and back stories and things, we were talking about how cool it is that we fell in live with prince for his music, often you want to know more, you want to lean in. for some reason we loved him just for his songs. >> i think his secrecy is what made him a superstar, part of it anyway, along with his genius, don't you agree? one time he came to visit us
10:11 am
offices, got out of a black limousine, wearing a black cape, with a diamond encrusted cane and walked into the building. everyone is like what the hell is that? it is prince! only prince can rock that. he lived a life that none of us could ever try to live. you know what, his music speaks for itself. really. >> his music was enough. we didn't need to know more. >> elvis, thank you very much. enjoy punta cana. >> have a great show. thanks! >> the cool thing about prince, not only did he write great songs, he wrote them for other people. >> i had no idea. >> i went through this this morning. >> he wrote "manic monday." >> that's it. how about this one, sinead
10:12 am
>> henry and i were reading this list, we were like these are all iconic songs. >> how about shack a con. i feel for you. >> this is called "jungle love." girl i want to know you. >> it is such a tough day. it is so sad to learn about his passing. i have to tell you, everybody, it is like a second wave with the music. >> brings you back. prince may be gone too soon. >> a look at his lasting legacy after this.

10:16 am
you've probably been hearing the word icon a lot since yesterday. the truth is prince was many things, a ground breaker, visionary, a true artist. >> here to shed light on what he meant to pop culture and music are two guys that spent time with prince. the author of "i would die 4 you." >> and former billboard magazine editor bill worthy. both got to know prince on a personal level. when did you first meet him? >> i interviewed him in 2000 at paisley park and saw him twice after that. >> intimidating? >> no, i didn't find him intimidating. interviewing him was difficult. you had to write, couldn't record. i am trying to write what he is saying. he spoke in shakespearean.
10:17 am
>> making the media be off kilter. i want you to be off, he talks in a byzantine way. i would be like what does that mean. what does this mean? >> do you have the same feeling with him? >> we put prince on the cover of a big relaunch in 2013. sent gail mitchell to minneapolis, paisley park. when she got there, not only wouldn't he let her record, he wouldn't even let her take notes. i texted to gail last night, i have a funny voice mail when she gets to the hotel. i can't leave a message, i have to start writing down everything that happened. >> so he was this amazing musician but we didn't know much about his personal life, probably because of that, he didn't speak much about it. what did you learn when you researched him? >> so much. his parents break up when he is young, he is thrown out of his
10:18 am
out of his mother's house because he didn't get along with the stepfather, allegations of physical abuse there. then he's homeless at 12, 13. end up living with andres simone's mother in her basement. she had i think six kids, was pursuing an advanced degree at that time. how much time did she have for this 13-year-old boy that was not really, really hers. but she did take care of him, call his mother from time to time, let her know he's doing okay. so there was attempt to give him some normalcy, but it was difficult. young teenager playing the strip clubs with his dad. >> is that what he was doing? >> yeah. >> did his dad teach him the music scene. everyone says he was self-taught, both parents were musicians. >> mother was a singer, father was a player. i don't know how much they taught him. >> i don't know that they taught him to play 23 instruments. >> he taught himself to play 23 instruments. >> he wasn't doing anything but
10:19 am
>> and very few artists can go from pop to rock to funk to r&b. what is it about his craft that crossed all of the borders? >> part of what he said is essential. i don't think he followed any sort of traditional scripted path to learning anything about music, he just sort of took everything in that was around him and wound up creating a synthesis that we all know as prince's kind of sound, it is rooted in funk, goes in all of these different directions. >> rock and roll for sure. what do you think his legacy will be? >> this is one of the greatest musicians of all time, who could do everything, dancing, singing, song writing, producing, performing. every skill you would want to have, he mastered it. >> well, he was amazing. i think it is interesting we are learning more about his personal life. you talk about him being a child of divorced parents, somehow
10:20 am
general x crowd. >> one thing that links them as divorce. parents of general xors are divorced more than millennials. it is an experience. in "when doves cry" general x was feeling that. my parents got divorced, my friends' parents got divorced. >> talk about a guy that transcends general xers, older people. >> of all of the artists that you may not hear, you have to believe it will get out there. of all the artists that were fanatical about protecting privacy and rights of their music, prince is the top of the list, and no one close. there are a lot of rights issues to work through, i am sure. let's cross our fingers. >> pretend that's a yes.
10:21 am
>> thanks so much, guys. back with much more after this.
