Price, of all people, has gone done the homophobic road again. Yes, remember when he did this? Well, he is back at it.
In 2008 Prince declared his opposition to same-sex marriage and said that gays got what they deserved in Sodom and Gomorrah. From a New Yorker piece at the time: “When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, ‘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.’
In his new song, Prince sings these lyrics about a girl: “Yesterday I saw you kickin’ it with another girl You was all wrapped up around her waist Last time I checked, you said you left the dirty world Well it appears that wasn’t the case Hey, I see you undercover like the CIA Snatching little wigs from another bouquet – that’s French I guess a man’s only good for a rainy day Maybe your just another bearded lady at the cabaret I wish I never kissed your (spits in disgust) ugh Doesn’t replace the memory.”
That is strike two for him. Should he be allowed another strike? Especially after this album cover?
