    If DFd we would know. Probably just faded like many of us. Or has better lawyers.

    I wish him only the best. He is human and got sucked in while vulnerable.

    Prince has publicly stated he is no longer a JW, especially after he divorced his JW wife. He lives in La-La hand. I once saw an interview with director Kevin Hart, where he spent a few weeks at Prince's house taping segments that weren't ever even aired. He said Prince has VOLUMES of unreleased work just sitting in a vault, that's never seen the light of day. He's perpetually creative, weird, and also a bit paranoid as well. That's what stardom will do to you. Also, he's a helluva basketball player as he was on the team in high school, and also according to Charlie Murphy. lol

    WC, can you point me to where he publicly stated he was no longer a JW? That conflict with what I thought I knew. Not saying you aren't being genuine, just looking for the smoking gun.

    If so, good for him.

      I thought Prince was sincere about being a JW after "The Rainbow Children" , his very PRO JW CD, amazing amazing album I might add! But I'm confused by him. For a JW's his newer albums still have "dirty" lyrics and undertones that I'm sure the JWs would not approve of. The lyrics to Bria Valente's album (which he wrote) are also dirty in some parts, so I'm confused. Also, his attitude in general is not very christian. Or Christ-like. He's still a bit of a jerk.

      I was in Chanhassen in 2004 and thought about visiting the Kingdom Hall there in hopes of running into Prince but then thought, "Nah, he doesn't go." Apparentlyl I should have! :smile:

    Prince isn't different than a lot of us whose lives were out of control and the WTB&TS provided a pretty snowglobe with a paradise and a scary god who promised to murder us and not let us inside that snowglobe unless we got our lives under his control. The paradise was the lure. The fear factor was the ultimate motivation.

    I think he's just taken on the Christian persona as a means to cover over his past " Dirty "

    public image of himself. Still quite the egotistical self loving narcissist thats commercially over hyped.

    He's not the little dirty one anymore he's the righteous little dirty one now.

    Totally clean and separate from his past.

    I think it's a way for him to be the "Ultimate" self righteous jerk. I can tell the "old" Prince is still there.

    I have to say that I was a little "surprised" and disappointed at his concert in edmonton recently.

    he has a huge catalogue of songs to choose from and he even mentioned this to the audience that night.

    some of his popular songs he didn't play, some other songs he didn't play all the way through(medley) ...but some "controversial" ones he played right through from beginning to end ...that was a drag except that I could rest my hands from clapping cuz they were sore.

    for the price of tickets I don't understand why he felt he had to ask the audience if we loved was so obvious

    + the white flag with rainbow musical notes and an angel blowing a horn makes me wonder if he sees himself as... O nevermind......

    love michelle

    Apparently he was 'guilted' back into the organization during his late mother's death bed urgings. Above all the weirdness and creativity he is after all "only" a human - and the dire need for even our dying mommas' approval is a spring from which many of us bad children have at one time or another almost drowned in. (Okay momma, I'm sorry for being a bad boy and I'll be a good boy just for you. Now will you get the hell off my back?!")

    His supposed turning his back on his "dirty" songs was never well thought through. Besides, by withholding their performance, he inadvertently increased the appeal of those songs. Like many superstars he also easily loses touch with reality. His simplistic, touchy-feely outlook reminds me of the late Michael Jackson: Too old to be a child, but too unaware of how ridiculous he looks trying to be a child.

    ok, we all know the National Enquirer is just tabloid trash,,,but on occasion it has been known to print a few right on stories,,,so on their web site today i was quite surprised (well, not really) to read about Boy George sleeping with Prince,,,spoken during the taping of "The Voice",,,


    George replied, "Forget that, darling. I've slept with Prince!"

    That's not the kind of pillow talk that Prince wants to hear — since he's now a devout Jehovah's Witness, and his religion says that homosexuality is a sin!""""

    I heard that story about Boy George today too, plus the fact that I heard his new single on the radio this week and he's back to singing suggestive lyrics. If some brothers got together and formed a band and the singer sang the same words, you know they'd be reported to the elders and in that back room in no time, however, Prince can get away with it.

    I like his early stuff like 'Dirty Mind'

    Its a very groovy track.

    Seems that a rep for the show claims that it was a joke.

    If you read further down on the article it reads ........

    But the heat must've come on quick, because now George is backtracking and saying that he never really bedded his fellow pop star.

    I'm guessing Boy George was envisioning sleeping with Princes since he is openly gay.

    Prince isn't involved with the JWs anymore by the way or if very little.

    Take a look at him now.

    I didn't think Prince's introduction to the JWS would last very long, the JW cult is just too oppressive and controlling and as we know and they watch you closely when you become one.

    Beside Prince's narcissistic ego tells him that people should be worshiping him not another deity like Jah.

    A recent picture of him in performance ....

    Sorry about that , I was just trying to copy a picture.

    I believe you might find Prince standing next to a purple cart on some street corner in the Miineapolis/StPaul metro area.

    I love it when over-the-top celebrities claim to be JWs.

    If the WT heirarchy clamps down on them for "worldy"behavior, it makes 'em look stodgy and meddlesome, but if they don't, it makes them look hypocritical for tolerating it.

    Talk about a catch-22.
