Then he was asked about issues like gay marriage and was quoted as saying, “God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’ ”
Now, supposedly Prince was either misquoted or the quote was taken out of context. And reportedly "His Royal Badness" is "very angry" about this. But he has not made any formal public rebuttals to this portion of the interview.
I tend to think things got a bit twisted. I would hate to think a man who busted onto the scene wearing eyeliner, a blow-out and sporting leg warmers and pumps would have a problem with the gay community. I mean, really? Prince forged an entire public persona that was based on androgyny, and his music has always embodied an all inclusive attitude-"Black, White, Puerto Rican, everybody just a freakin'"!
It would be easy to assume Prince takes an anti gay stance having gone real deep into being a Jehovah's Witness. He's even taking it so far as to go door to door proselytizing to his neighbors--What?! I wish I would open my door and see this little man standing there in ass-less pants and a perm holding a Bible wanting to show me the way. But for real, can a man whose had three marriages really have anything to say about anybody else wanting to walk down the aisle?
Well, only Prince really knows what he said and what he meant, but seeing as he was smart enough to pioneer the fight for music artists' rights, and champion the usage of alternative revenue sources, I think he's smart enough to know that love is love and everybody should just "shut up and dance!"
