That uncomfortable moment when someone shares too much personal information.

Viewers were treated to CNN’s Carol Costello relating the impact pop star Prince had made in her life during college, sharing how he even helped her “embrace my sexuality.”

“Prince was so much more than just an artist,” Costello said Friday, fondly reminiscing about the 57-year-old icon who died Thursday.

“I mean, for me personally, his music became popular when I was in college. Those are your formative years, those are the years you open your mind and take everything in,” she said.

“He opened my eyes to the gay community, because I never really thought about it before,” Costello continued. “He allowed me to embrace my sexuality, which was very important, right? You could be whatever you wanted to be and be successful. You could look like Prince, he was a very handsome man, don’t get me wrong, but he was different from what I grew up with.”
