$100 million with warner. it was a bigger deal than both madonna and michael. >> one of the things i keep thinking about is how young he was when he had these first breaks and how much courage and confidence in himself he had, to be just totally original. >> yeah. i think he thrived on that. i think that's what was -- even at the end of the day with this lawsuit with warner brothers, him fighting for his autonomy musically, you know, he wrote for so many other people. he wrote, as you said in the piece, "manic monday" for the bengals. it was important for him to produce music for himself, for others. he was going to do it on his own terms. he was fearless. my theory is him staying in the twin cities allowed him to stay at arm's length, to do things his own way. >> so many other artists are talking about the influence prince had on them. as the host of
years, you must have seen a ton of artists come through who had taken some little piece of prince and tried to work it into their own persona. >> matt, i think it's safe to say everybody who came through. i got to mtv in the late '90s. i was there because they played music videos. i left because they stopped playing music videos. every artist who came through on my watch, including prince, highly influenced by genres. rock and roll, soul, everybody wanted to be like prince. justin timberlake you saw the other day, there was a little of prince in every song i wrote. prince wrote for alicia keys, jay-z and beyonce. you can't say this about a lot of people. he touched everybody. i think that's what the last 24 hours has really been about. his reach was so far, so wide. he'll be so sorely missed. >> we just have a few seconds
