As you know, her purple majesty Prince was just interviewed by the New Yorker and blithely gave them allegorical comments like, “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’.”
Well, like, I think one should use much better grammar when discussing a being so fabulously powerful as God. And furthermore, if there IS such a deity, do you think he/she really sanctions a little fruit fly scampering around the world’s stages and chirping lyrics about giving head and having “mad sex in the horny morning”? What’s more, if a performer has borrowed so much from the gays–like his whole semi-drag look complete with foofy hair and hand gestures–shouldn’t he be a little more respectful of us, especially since, despite God saying “Enough,” there seem to be more of us than ever? And is Prince really such a weirdie that in 2008, he honestly thinks two adults having consensual sex constitutes people “sticking it wherever and…with whatever?”
Oh, please, you little fuschia twit. Enough!
