Prince talk about Jehovah Witness Religion
The interveiwer should have asked him if he was familiar with the many false predictions of Watchtower for the end of the world and How does he feel about the vast slaughter Jehovah is going to bring on non jehovah witnesses.
At one point he alludes to younger days when he was "wilder" or some such. Quite different of course to more recent performances. Saw him on fallon where he ended with throwing his guitar down and feedback caused a god awful racket. If any local witness kid simply became to obvious listening to this "music" the elders would be on them for it. But they would never mention their aversion to his music and such anywhere in their literature.
Not the best way to conduct an interview with a celebrity if all they do is knock their religion. Can you imagine the war of words which would result if someone confronted Tom Cruise about Xenu?
Over the years Prince has been romantically linked with many celebrities, including Kim Basinger, Madonna, Vanity, Sheila E., Carmen Electra, Susanna Hoffs, Anna Fantastic, [ 16 ] Sherilyn Fenn, [ 122 ] and Susan Moonsie of Vanity 6 and Apollonia 6. [ 19 ]
He married his backup singer and dancer, Mayte Garcia, on Valentine's Day, 1996. They had a son, Boy Gregory (born October 16, 1996), who was born with Pfeiffer syndrome and died a week after birth. [ 124 ] Prince and Mayte divorced in 1999. In 2001, Prince married Manuela Testolini in a private ceremony. Testolini filed for divorce in May 2006. [ 125 ] He has been in a relationship with protégée Bria Valente since 2007. [ 104 ]
Prince became a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses in 2001 following a two-year-long debate with friend and fellow Jehovah's Witness, musician Larry Graham. Prince said he didn't consider it a conversion, but a "realization"; "It's like Morpheus and Neo in The Matrix", he explained. He attends meetings at a local Kingdom Hall and occasionally knocks on people's doors to discuss his faith. [ 126 ] Prince has reportedly needed double-hip-replacement surgery since 2005 but won't undergo the operation unless it is a bloodless surgery because Jehovah's Witnesses do not accept blood transfusions. [ 127 ] The condition is rumored to be aggravated by repeated onstage dancing in high-heeled boots. [ 128 ] However, when Prince was interviewed in 2010, journalist Peter Willis said he believed the rumors of Prince needing double hip surgery to be unfounded and untrue as Prince appeared to be agile. [ 104 ]
Prince is a vegetarian. In 2006 he was voted the "world's sexiest vegetarian" in PETA's annual online poll. [ 129 ] The liner notes for his album Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic featured a message about the cruelty involved in wool production. [ 130 ]
Since 2008, Prince has been managed by UK based Kiran Sharma owner of Kikit Entertainment. [ 131 ]
In June 2011, Prince was quoted in the Guardian as saying "It's fun being in Islamic countries, to know there's only one religion. There's order. You wear a burqa. There's no choice. People are happy with that." [ 133 ]
I liked the video, thanks for sharing...
I think it is odd
he has a video in which he is busking and someone comes up and gives him a live forever? tract
Prince - "It's fun being in Islamic countries, to know there's only one religion. There's order. You wear a burqa. There's no choice. People are happy with that."
Okay, I thought this guy was eccentric back when he said "the Internet is dead", but this convinces me that he has completely lost touch with any and all aspects of reality.
(following up on what I posted above) I probably shouldn't complain all that much.
Back when I was an active JW and I'd heard Prince had become one, I honestly didn't believe it at first. Then the evidence piled up, and I had to.
And I was embarrassed; I hoped he'd quit. And soon.
I've been faded for a good long while, now, though, and I've come to realize that the more batshit crazy stuff he says, the goofier he's gonna make JWs look.
He's becoming the Watchtower's Tom Cruise.
(I will concede this though; he's a helluva guitarist)
Prince is a brilliant musician, and an artist. Dude plays what....15 instruments damn near to perfection?
But he has also been in a coccon his entire life, and was seeking meaning. Enter Larry Ghrahm whom he respected as a man and a musician (plays the bass like a madman). If Larry was a Mormon, he might be a Mormon.
Even Prince needs friends. I think its hilarious that the standards vary between what Prince is able to do, and the normal JW. Then again, I guess Prince isn't "appointed". Prince is more of an honorary title I suppose. Haha.
You were on target Vidiot, Prince only quoted the negative response about the internet
because everything he learned at that time from the Jehovah's witnesses was negative about the internet
and warned them to stay away
But through the internet , Larry and prince will become the face of false prophets
A great musician but a weird dude. Par for the course for
those becoming JW,s these days.
He is a weird one. After all the coming of Armageddon is not that much different than when Prince sung the song "1999".

That sounds like a mouth full of bullshit to me.......
A realization my ass......
All Larry Graham did was drag Prince's ass down to his level of stupidity and beat it with experience.....
Here is an image from his 2007 Superbowl performance:
That pic is priceless; it should have the tagline:
"the most famous active Jehovah's Witness in the world"
Which reminds me:
