Prince Was Misquoted, The Singer's Camp Claims

| Filed under: Exclusives!Gay Gay GayPrince

everyone.jpg

Contrary to what a recent interview with the New Yorker is reporting, a source close to the rocker tells us that Prince was grossly misquoted and misinterpreted as not down with gay rights.

Apparently, the interviewer did not even use a recorder when she spoke with His Holy Purpleness, and that when she called his people to fact check, it turned out she had several factual inaccuracies, including a little bit about Prince recovering from hip surgery, which he never even had. Like Prince is really made of bones or something and not nebulous gold glitter - come on!

What His Purpleness actually did was gesture to the Bible and said he follows what it teaches, referring mainly to the parts about loving everyone and refraining from judgment.

That sounds better, considering he's a man who caused his own Controversy!

"We're very angry he was misquoted," says our Prince insider.

No tape recorder? How unprofessional!

    He may have been misquoted in some areas, but I have studied with the Witnesses, and no good Witness is going to approve (or even be tolerant) of homosexuality.

    PRINCE DOES NOT HAVE TO BACKTRACK.

    He would not be misquoted if he would take the dick out of his mouth before he speaks.

    prince is so unisex.

    and by that i mean universally sexy.



  22. 22

    i'm not religious……..but, are you allowed to pick and choose what you take out of the bible?………edumacate me people



  23. 23

    I hope he was misquoted… because I'm about ready to go home, gather every piece of Prince music I own, and destroy it.



  24. 24

    Fact is : PRINCE DOES NOT ALLOW TAPE RECORDERS OR THAT THE INTERVIEWER TAKES ANY NOTES.

    Every long time Prince fan knows that. And that is the problem with this guy. If he want saccuracy, he should allow journalists to take some notes. But he doesn't.



  25. 25

    Thought so, don't gay people make him rich??



  26. 26

    I HAVE BEEN MISQUOTED!

    Thanks Perezito :)

    Yes its true, JW's dont approve. But they are tolerant AND DO follow what the bible says. To love each other and know that ONLY GOD can judge us.



  29. 29

    I love Prince.

    Re: kcarab niessuh amabo
    Neither Prince nor Terence Trent Darby are gay. Prince was married two times and had hundreds of girlfriends.

    Terence Trent Darby is married now for several years to a VERY beautiful italian woman.



  31. 31

    ….but he never actually said he was FOR gay rights? Not much of a take-back if you ask me….



  32. 32

    As a Christian and Jehovah's Witness, Prince is obligated to express God's displeasure with homosexuality and the wrongness of gay marriage.

    On a personal level, maybe he doesn't have a problem with it, but no Christian can condone a behavior vilified by God.

    If Prince was a Muslim, his opinion would be even more serious. Who would have thought that the gays would become the bullies they hate so much.

    PRINCE ALWAYS DOES NOT ALLOW JOURNALISTS TO RECORD AN INTERVIEW!!!!!!
    that's why i assume the journalist did not record the conversation.



  34. 34

    I hope it really was a misquote cause I was heartbroken after reading the first post :(

    "Like Prince is really made of bones or something and not nebulous gold glitter - come on!"

    LOLZ it's true.

    Re: mama of 2 – AAHAHAHAAAAAA….nice.



  38. 38

    It's a BELIEF and he is entitled to his own.. everyone dog has his own story.. I'm sure we can all agree to disagree.. big whoah.. If he doesnt want to be part of the gay movement fine.. he's not doing anything agaisnt it so what's the big fuzz?



  39. 39

    Re: TwoGoofballs – good…because you all are a bunch of freaks….no one is requesting your approval anyhow so fuck off



  40. 40

    Re: Boquita – "I'm sure we can all agree to disagree.."

    I don't tolerate intolerance.



  41. 41

    Sounds like serious backpeddling on his Royal Purpleness's part — JWs are notoriously fundamental and absolutely, under no circumstances support or condone the gay lifestyle, much less gay rights, in any way. They do not even condone "live and let live, just love everyone" as Prince is trying to now say is what he meant. I was raised JW and couldn't wait to get out of the cult. But I know a few things about them, and Prince is copping out — he's trying to claim one thing, but live another. Uncool.



  42. 42

    Re: KCRosie – errr… do you even know what's the word 'Cult' means?? Why Jehovah's Witness differ than other christians? They go to church.. study bible like other christian.

    I know a lot of JW and they're one of the most honest and kind people out there. And they're not judgmental.



  43. 43

    I was raised a JW. And although I don't not attend meetings anymore, I know they do not teach ppl to be Judgemental especially when it comes to other ppl lifestyle choices. So for that reason I believe he was misquoted. I was taught so much when I was active in the truth, but not one of them was to hate men and women for the choices they made in thier lives. I have gay friends, bisexual and ppl who just love sex no matter what sex of the person. They come to my house my rents house and never do they leave feeling anything but welcomed. No judgement, no preaching, just love. Though I longer attend I am greatful that I was apart of it as a child because it taught me tolerence toward everyone including you ppl who are quick to throw a whole religion under a bus just cause you don't get it. Whoever said ignorance is bliss must have been talking to about you..lol

    I assume you are saying this because:

    1. You are ignorant.
    2. You are assuming I am Jehovah's Witness.

    So, let me set you straight. You ARE ignorant, but I'm not a babtized Jehovah's Witness. I said I studied with them. As in past tense. Personally I fall way short of being able to live the clean life they require to be in the congregation.

  54. 54

    But was it actually carrot soup?



  55. 55

    I left a comment elsewhere that he had basically left all the heavy lifting to his interpretation of God without judging anyone. I'm glad to say I was absolutely right!! That man is judgmental about ugly, not about choice.



  56. 56

    and you believe that?



  57. 57

    I knew it was so bad to be tru, Prince loves the gays. Heck i thought he was gay myself at one time.



  58. 58

    Re: skittishkitty – JWs are nice people for the most part. Most are honest. But having been raised one, I can absolutely, without doubt or hesitation say they are a fundamental and judgmental bunch, eager to disfellowship at the slightest "offense" — they are very isolationist so disfellowshipping, or shunning, is a tactic they use to threaten folks and ensure conformation with their standards. I'm not guessing at this, I've seen it with my own eyes, over and over. Nice, honest people can be involved in cults too.

    Regardless, this whole "love everybody" thing that Prince is trying to spout is not in compliance with their teachings. They do not in any way condone the homosexual lifestyle, neither passively or overtly.

    anyone who has been
    around her knows she is

    he was not misquoted, sounds like the judgemental shit i hear all the time from my husband and his family, who are Witnesses.



  61. 61

    RE: chica mala #2……Prince helps many people & donates tons of $$$$ but you just dont hear about it because he has grace & gives w/out needing to attach his name to his donations !!!! Check it out before you talk crap!!

    SEE I TOLD YOU!



  63. 63

    Seeing as how those who have spoken negatively of Jehovah's Witnesses can't seem to speak intelligent complete sentences without profanity or desperate, outlandish, and inaccurate accusations, I rest my case.

    You want to learn the truth about Jehovah's Witnesses? Seek one out and ask them, or visit watchtower.org. If you insist on making assumptions (or asserting you know the "Truth" about them due to negative personal experience), you either have been lazy and haven't done your own research or there's valid a reason you're not one of Jehovah's Witnesses anymore. Using bitterness as a crutch to spread your hateful agenda is quite unfortunate.

    Re: GHT – I appreciate the bump hon, but try not to invest too much time and effort into trying to change people's minds about us. They're going to believe what they want, and we can't expect what we say to be absorbed.



  65. 65

    I love Prince, I happen to be a big fan. However, even if he WAS misquoted, he is still entitled to his opinion.
