Prince pointing fingers from high atop purple throne

Posted November 20th, 2008 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

According to various sources, The New Yorker is standing behind its story that Prince has besmirched the gay lifestyle with some bible-thumping judgement high atop his purple throne. Prince’s minions are denying any of this, of course, with typically half-assed "out of context" excuses. No one wants to be publicly blackballed as a bigot, but Prince is a Jehova’s Witness. That cloudy cult sect is not exactly friendly with the gays, theologically speaking. The media is running wild with hypocrisy claims against Prince, a man who has made a career out of androgyny and pansexualism. This type of story is exactly why I hate interviews with musicians. I don’t ever want to know what any musician/actor/entertainer thinks about anything, as it is almost always a cloud-busting experience. And I find it hard to believe that Prince has never once considered dipping his purple wick in any overly hirsute holes. Come on.
