Simon Cowell - Carmen Electra Keen To Revamp Pop Career With Skrillex

Simon Cowell's reported new girlfriend Carmen Electra is hoping to revive her pop career with a little help from electronic dance music superstar Skrillex.

The former Baywatch babe burst onto the scene as Prince's pop protege almost two decades ago and now she admits that her work with the Purple Rain hitmaker blighted her dreams of becoming a chart regular.

She tells Spinner.com, "It was the most unreal, amazing experience of my life... I mean, obviously he's (Prince) a genius, so inspiring.

"To this day, if I'm not feeling inspired, I think of those moments. Or if I'm feeling insecure sometimes, I'll think to myself 'Well, Prince believed in me! I can do this!'

"But I kind of felt like, working with Prince, what do you do after that?"

After releasing a debut album, with Prince as producer, Electra turned to modelling and acting, and that part of her career took off.

She has only recently returned to the studio to record a batch of dance music floorfillers - and she has her next collaborations lined up: "My absolute dream collaboration would be Skrillex. I also love Kaskade."

And she's keen to know what her mentor, Prince, thinks of her latest track, I Like it Loud.

Electra adds, "I am kind of curious. Overall, it may not be his cup of tea, but I think that he would be proud of me."
