Party Like It’s 699: Prince Says Islam is Fun, Applauds Burqas

By Debbie Schlussel

Remember Prince a/k/a Prince Rogers Nelson, the height-challenged, has-been ’80s pop star whose sleazy, lascivious lyrics were all the rage? When it comes to the sexual liberation he was pimping on America, he apparently stops at Dar Al-Islam, the Islamic border–you know, out of respect. He thinks Islamic countries are fun and that it’s cool to force women to wear burqas. Apparently, a new song, “Raspberry Niqab,” is in order.


Prince: Islam is Fun, Burqas are Happy Wear!

Check out what he told the UK’s Guardian. Even the pro-Muslim Guardian isn’t too keen on his comments:

Sometimes he seems a little too fond of boundaries. “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.” But what about women who are unhappy about having to wearing burqas? “There are people who are unhappy with everything,” he says shruggingly. “There’s a dark side to everything.”

Hey, wasn’t he juror #4 at the Casey Anthony trial?

Yeah, it’s just “people being unhappy” to not to want to wear Islamic garb of oppression. Whatta moron. What if I said: yeah, racism and slavery of Black people–the Blacks have no choice and are happy with that. What–Black people don’t like it? There are people who are unhappy with everything. There’s a dark side to everything. Imbecile.

Gee, I wonder if he ever tried performing his “Darling Nikki” song in any of the “fun,” burqa-encrusted Muslim countries.  I wonder how his lyrics about Nikki masturbating and “grinding” with her “devices” would go over.

Despite all his raunchy, explicit lyrics, it’s long been rumored that Prince is gay. And you know how “fun” it is to be gay in Islamic countries, right? Apparently, he doesn’t.

And we know for sure that he’s Black. I guess he thinks it’s “fun” to be treated as second-class, as Islam is a very racist religion, and Muslims refer to Blacks (Muslim or not) as “abed” or “abeed”–Arabic singular and plural for slave, which is used in place of the n-word.

These same showbiz scumbags who always attack Christian Americans with values, have no problem with the real threat of Muslims who instantly behead people for looking the wrong way.

Another case of Shut Up and Sing. Except in Prince’s case, it’s just, SHUT. UP.

I’ve always thought Prince was weird.

Roger is a devout Jehovah’s Witness I do believe. He makes Michael Jackson look like a character in Mayberry.

I always thought he was something that you wiped off the bottom of a shoe. He is creepy.

Jonathan Grant on July 8, 2011 at 1:40 pm

I was linked to this articel form a post on Facebook. It is fine that the author disagrees as did the journalist from the UK Guardian asking questions which are quoted above, however, come on now!!?? Prince being gay??!! Seriously? This is pure tabloid slander and if the author is Jewish, she should know about lashon hora.

I do hope Prince Rogers Nelson was able to see beyond the veil of false unity. He has an attraction as many of us do to purity, i.e. the fondness of a burqa. However I pray he weighs in all that goes with the oppression of women in many of the Islamic societies. Note that I did not say “all”.

I’ve heard of this dude Prince, I never listened to the guys music. Now he’s a dhimmi and a water-carrier for islam? I would like to ask Prince a question, bro, do you want to see your wife, daughter(s), mother, grandmother, nieces and your in-law females in a burqa?

Also from what I learned, in African nations before blacks sold themselves to the white-europeans, the arabic-muslims enslaved black-africans in their respectable countries and also didn’t the prophet Mohammed mentioned that “the black man is inferior”?

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on July 8, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Of course, Sean R., you know that the answer to your last question is “yes.”

It really is incredible how vile Islam is. But then what would you expect the “religion” of Amalek to be?

I have NEVER, EVER liked this closet, freaky, male and girly skank. I don’t mind like two songs of his but that is IT! He is a freak and will always be one. I hated him most in the 80s when everyone thought he was a “genius” but his music sucks and he was just an uncontrollable pervert. And I thought that people who liked him were pervy too. (And I was no nerd…I was into both heavy metal and punk rock but hated this girly POS!)

He is also one of the many narcissists who think it is all about HIM. That is why he loves the order of Islam and has no problem with the “dark side”…as long as it doesn’t touch HIM.

I am proud that I NEVER saw “Purple Rain” or had any of his shi**y CDs. I’ll listen to Bootsy Collins (THE ORIGINAL!) if I want good and true funk. Not some pip-squeek closeted gay fool. (It’s the 2011’s Prince…lots of tougher gays than YOU fought for their right to come out years ago and what does it say about YOU if you’re deeper in the closet than a garment bag in 2011? PUH-LEEZE!)

And didn’t this phony supposedly become so religious so many years ago? Yeah, another FRAUD. A “Jehovah Witness”, I think.

Ick. This fool was so long over for me. When he changed his name into that pretentious glyph, everyone should have flipped him the bird.

Skunky on July 8, 2011 at 2:22 pm

prince should start wearing a burqa

and get a clitorectomy

prestigio on July 8, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Purple Rain? Well, he should expect to receive yellow rain from me if I ever see him.

pats on July 8, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Prince a/k/a “the Artist formerly known as Prince” released an album in 1991, “Diamonds and Pearls,” that was uniformly excellent. He also did a fine LP circa 1987 called “Graffiti Bridge.” And “Purple Rain” (1984), though overhyped like the movie, had some great tracks.

That said, the man should stick to music and forget about politics. On the subject of Islam, he’s a schmuck.

Quick, can anybody here hum more than say, two or three tunes written by this guy? For that matter, can anybody even NAME more than five or six tunes written by him? Regardless of his politics and/or sexuality, he is one of those late 20th century “musical” figures who’s iconic status has always been incomprehensible to me. Along with Beck (the goofy scientologist, not the goofy mormon), he is one of those people who was constantly being refered to as a “genius” by both music critics and fans alike, and yet, I don’t think he has ever composed anything even slightly catchy, let alone a standard that everybody knows.

While the religion and politics (respectively) of Cat Stevens and Elvis Costello are now repulsive, there is no denying that at least back in the 1970s, they had talent and both wrote quite a few nifty tunes. People of a certain age (and even younger) can actually hum a few bars of “Moonshadow,” “Oh Very Young,” “Oliver’s Army” and “Accidents Will Happen.”

I don’t think there was EVER a period when this guy had anything remotely resembling talent. Could there possibly be anybody under the age of 25 for whom the tuneless ditty “Purple Rain” and…and…(you know what? I can’t even think of any others), holds any meaning?

Irving on July 8, 2011 at 2:49 pm

Prince was all the rage? He is a Jehovah Nitwit?No wonder there are no pictures of him in Islamic countries. She’s been bagged up in a burqa.

CaliforniaScreaming on July 8, 2011 at 3:12 pm

“There’s a dark side to everything.”

Wonder if women being unhappy clitorodechtomies is another one of those things that are part of the “dark side?”

CornCoLeo on July 8, 2011 at 3:46 pm

As a musician, he’s a bona fide genius. Brilliant pop song writer, too. Never been much of a deep thinker, though. Gay? Absurd. The guy’s taste in women is astonishing. Vanity. Appolonia. The list goes on and on of leggy, busty beauties that hung with Prince. If they are beards, then he has really great taste in beards.

fleiter on July 8, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Correction: You mean the list of “leggy busty beauties” that he has been PHOTOGRAPHED IN PUBLIC WITH goes on and on. When he goes home at night, I suspect they’ve never followed him there. My guess is that he is into guys like himself, who resemble ugly women.

    Irving on July 9, 2011 at 12:44 am

Prince is a jackass.

DS_ROCKS! on July 8, 2011 at 4:58 pm

I’ve heard that Prince’s knee are shot, but surgery requires blood transfusions, which is against Jehovah’s Witless…Witness’s beliefs.

So he’s gonna performing using a hoveround one of these days.

Artist Formerly Known as Good on July 8, 2011 at 5:43 pm

“Islam is fun?” is like saying crushed glass tastes funky. If I were doing a comedy act for my Jewish brothers and actually came up with what he said, I’d have people following all over themselves with laughter.

Thank you Debbie for posting this gem. As you are a movie critic, I want you to know that I take news about Prince as serious as watching “Troll 2” in reverse.

Fred on July 8, 2011 at 6:13 pm

When will celebrities learn to SHUT UP?! Now, I gotta kick Prince to the curb, and I love his music, but he gone now! Clearing out the collection.

Daphne on July 8, 2011 at 10:30 pm

Big fan of Prince during the seventies and eighties, (I wanna be your lover, Dirty Mind, Lets pretend we’re married). However the last cassette I purchased from was Batman back in 89 and nothing since. He also kept Carmen Electra for awhile to show he wasn’t gay along with Kim Bassinger (which should’ve given Alex Baldwin pause before he married her). I would ignore the freaky lifestyle, the name changes to a symbol and just enjoy a fierce guitar repretoire. Why anyone would want to interveiw him on anything serious is rediculous, he just doesn’t have the capacity for civilized thought.
A truly great actor once said while being interveiwed by Stuttering John about some political subject matter,”That subject is not my expertise, I’m an actor and I think most actors should stay out of politics and stick to what they know best.” Fred Gwynne aka Herman Munster.

Koeteus on July 8, 2011 at 11:02 pm

He probably sees big record sales in Islamo countries. Whore with a funny voice.

Not Ovenready on July 9, 2011 at 12:10 am

I guess Herman Munster didn’t get the Abby Normal brain after all 🙂

@Daphne, keep the discs.
I came to the conclusion years ago that most actors, musicians and artists are nutjobs and fruitcakes and I refuse to listen to their political views. If that really mattered, most of my music collection would be in the trash. As if I need them to tell me what to think. As Zappa said, just shut up and play your guitar.

oh, and those who say that…
Prince is NOT gay???…ha ha!…ha ha ha!…oh that’s rich!

theShadow on July 9, 2011 at 12:11 am

The overrated little fart has always been totally childish,sexist,and selfish against women, even at his current age( 52/53 ) ,and this proves it,yet again.This doesn’t surprise me for a second.

Phineas on July 9, 2011 at 1:53 pm

I’ve always wondered why I never bought any of his music………

Tanstaafl on July 9, 2011 at 2:58 pm

Just another washed up, has-been scumbag entertainer who is intellectually deficient

Gman213 on July 9, 2011 at 10:02 pm

Disclosure: I actually like most of Prince’s music. It contains the right mix of rock and soul, plus I’m not offended by some of his more greasy and sleazy tunes such as “Darling Nikki” and “Sexy Motherfucker”.

Now that I’ve outed myself as a Prince fan, I know that his pro-Nazi-slamic is not the first time he got out of line, nor would it be his last. In the past he had spoken out against the internet, Tipper Gore, censorship, corporate exploitation of artists (remember when he changed his name to a symbol – classy, eh?)

As much as I agree with no-censorship (it deprives us the ability to discipline ourselves via free-will) and artistic freedom (ditto), his Muslim comments deserves my thumbs-down.

As for his stance on the internet: nice try, Mr. Nelson, but the world won’t stop for you.

I’m still going to play “1999”, just because I can.

The Reverend Jacques on July 10, 2011 at 6:43 am

When I was a lad, if a fruit like this had EVER shown up in our neighborhood, he would have lost his teeth in less than 30 seconds.
AND, would never have shown up around here again.

Trooper Thornton on July 11, 2011 at 12:10 pm

Never a fan of this closet type. Heard a few words from his mouth in the late ’80’s, and after seeing the types who he surrounded himself with I am thankful for the channel changer. What a useful idiot.

jake49 on July 11, 2011 at 3:52 pm

Happy now, Debbie?
