The Purple One Slams Gay Marriage
In an interview with The New Yorker, 50-year-old controlling musical artist Prince expressed views on both liberals and conservatives in the U.S., his own religion and thoughts on the very public debate over gay marriage.
“So here’s how it is: you’ve got the Republicans, and basically they want to live according to [the bible],” Prince told author Claire Hoffman.
“And then on the opposite end of the spectrum you’ve got blue, you’ve got the Democrats,” he said. “And they’re, like, ‘You can do whatever you want.’ Gay marriage, whatever. But neither of them is right.”
Prince goes on to say that God personally responded to homosexuals upon seeing “people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’”
The singer is evidently rooted to his mission as a Jehovah’s Witness. When he’s not behaving like the world’s most exclusive party animal, the purple one goes door-to-door preaching.
“Sometimes people act surprised, but mostly they’re really cool about it,” said Prince of his house calls.
He might not want to be caught spreading the word in West Hollywood.
Update: Perez Hilton is reporting a source close to the singer’s camp claims he was misquoted. Moreso, that journalist Claire Hoffman has stacked several inaccuracies (including an imaginary hip injury for the Artists) and didn’t even use a recording device for the interview.
“We’re very angry he was misquoted,” the insider said.
Celebuzz has contacted Prince’s camp for comment.
