We saw this with the apologists for the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. The intellectual cowardice of the lazy.
Coming from a guy who made individual expression his trademark - this reeks of narcissistic hypocrisy.
Prince, the Grammy Award-winning artist behind “Purple Rain,” told the Guardian in an interview that women forced to wear burqas in Islamic countries are “happy” to wear them.So, I guess he is cool with religious apartheid, pushing walls on top of homosexuals, cutting hands off of thieves, stoning "Darling Nikki" for adultery, and burning Jehovah's Witness Halls; maybe the one he goes to.
“It’s fun being in Islamic countries, to know there’s only one religion,” Prince told the British newspaper. “There’s order. You wear a burqa. There’s no choice. People are happy with that.”
Maybe we can get some new Prince songs like, "Raspberry Burka." "Little Red Beheading Sword." "Purple Lashing Scars."
Then again - who cares what he thinks but a few million fans, right?
