The CEO of Epic Records went on the morning talk show on Friday (Apr. 22) to remember the Purple One, reminiscing about his good friend.
"I spent the day yesterday just listening to Prince, and for whatever reason, it sounded even better. What a great guy … I've always said it: The greatest at everything: playing, writing, composing, fashion, everything. [He had] the masculinity of Teddy Pendergrass, but he could take your girl [while] wearing high heels."
But things aren't what they seem, Reid said, and he suspects something fishy with the whole situation.
"The thing that really bothers me about it is the Prince I know was like super healthy... vegan, wasn't an abuser of drugs, wasn't an abuser of alcohol, you know. He lived right, and he was clean. He looked young, he looked really healthy and vibrant. So the whole thing is really mysterious to me."
