Well... you have lots of Dylan, Springsteen and McCartney fans among Prince fans, too, so anything is possible lol

If 30 years of fandom has taught me something, it's that Prince managed to attract all kinds of individuals among his fanbase. So why not Trump supporters? Given the amount of votes he got, it's reasonable to assume Trump's fanbase isn't only made of Texan farmers wearing hats and listening to country music.

I suspect the mods are gonna lock this or send it to P&R, though.

Anyway, according to Tyka it was orange.

Check out the Politics and Religion forum.

I know a couple IRL. But they support Republicans no matter what; it's just they way they see things.

Prince made "Donald Trump (Black Version).

BTW, this thread doesn't belong in Prince: Music and More.

and....

The Trumpster plays "Purple Rain" at his rallies.

So the answer is "of course."

For our next topic do murderers and rapists listen to all kinds of music? Or course.

Nonsense thread.

Hey!! I'm one of those--Springsteen far less than the other two, but still....

But defintely not a Trump supporter.

But, yeah, there are a few that are pretty straightforward in their support on the .org--and probably a lot more who just never mention it. But the ones that I know are pro-Trump usually seem reasonable in their Prince fandom (not big lovers of Jughead, or anything)--so musical taste and Trump-support do not seem to go hand-in-hand in any clear way.

Regardless of your views, millions - a majority - voted for Donald Trump. Logic would then suggest a number of them would be Prince fans.

I'm sure there are Prince fans who voted Brexit in the UK as well.

It's a question of perception - they simply don't see themselves according to the media or the opposition's narrative. There is no contradiction between supporting Trump and listening to Prince from their personal perspective, and ultimately, that is all that matters whether we happen to agree or not.

What I meant was that it's unlikely that so many rock/folk fans are also Prince fans. Nothing to do with good or bad taste. Just that you'd expect Prince fans to be, in their vast majority, funk/R&B fans and/or electronic/synthpop/dance music fans.

It works the other way around: if, say, a Dylan or Springsteen or McCartney fan found out that 50% of Dylan/Springsteen/McCartney fans are mostly into stuff like James Brown, Cameo, Kraftwerk, Scritti Politti, Tony Toni Toné or Public Enemy, but not so much into other rock, blues and folk acts, that would be somewhat confusing. That's how confused I felt when I realized so many Prince fans were rockers.

But Prince wanted to crossover and succeeded beyong expectations lol

PliablyPurple

PLENTY of so called Christians have sold their soul and support/supported Drumpf, yes. I imagine that would include some Prince fans. Hell, Pearl Jam caught flack from some of its audience when they took on Bush, and they have a long history as a band of getting behind progressive, social causes. In other words, the band has always worn their political stands on their sleeves. And yet, ...

Springsteen has always supported the Democrats. Dylan doesn't talk about politics in interviews, but he has expressed his admiration for Obama. McCartney is British, so he can't really say much about American politics, but my guess is that anybody who supports PETA is not a Trump fan.

Hell yeah! Right here! cool

If you don’t realize there are multitudes of Hispanics, blacks, women, minorities, and yes even (gasp) Prince fans who support President Trump then you need to get out of your bubble and meet people who do not share your political views. Or continue to be ignorant and stereotype all trump voters as uneducated KKK supporting hillbillies. You can think that if you want but you would be totally wrong and you will continue to he mystified at how your candidates and their idiotic policies continue to lose. Peace! cool

But Trump got 77 more Electoral College votes and those are the rules they both were playing by. That’s what counts in the real world.

But what's more, considering Prince late career poiltically relevant concert benefits, and support of Black Lives Matters, Obama, etc...

What would these fans have said about his potentially likely anti-Trump agenda songs that might have been... maybe he would have re-compiled and released "Welcome 2 America" as a heavily critical album.

We conservatives already deal with that as the majority of entertainers who speak out tend to be liberals (those who are conservative tend to keep their views private.) I love GnR and just yesterday Axl Rose was blasting the President.

If Prince were alive I would look at it the same way I look at all entertainers... I love their work and I am inspired by their work but I have a mind of my own and can think for myself and will not be swayed by entertainers or the mainstream media or anyone else. I can appreciate and love Prince and Axl Rose and many others without agreeing with them on all of their viewpoints. I would think that any Prince fans who didn’t convert to Jehovah’s Witness can comprehend that! cool

I was never disputing that Hilary won the popular vote.
The most important fact that actually makes a difference is that you win the presidency by getting the majority of Electoral College votes, which Trump easily did. THOSE are the rules to win the presidency.

Well then they probably don't listen to this Prince song:

"Dreamer"

Eye was born & raised on the same plantation
In the united states of the red, white and blue
Eye never knew that eye was different
Til dr. king was on the balcony
Lying in a bloody pool
Expected so much more from a loving society

A truthful xplanation but you know what?
Eye got another conspiracy

If it was just a dream... call me
Call me a dreamer 2
With more rewards & accolades
Than anyone b4 or after
21st century, oh what a shame
That race still matters
A race 2 what and where we going?
We r in the same boat
But eye'm the only one rowin
Last time eye checked you were sleepin'
...but you can call me a dreamer 2
Peanut butter logic served on a bed of lies
Don't go down 2 easy
When you see ur father cryin'
Have you ever clutched the steering wheel
Of ur car 2 tight?

Prayin' that the police sirens
Pass you by at night?
While the helicopter circles
& the theory's getting deep
Thing they're spraying chemicals over the city
While we sleep?

From now on eye'm staying awake...
So you can call me a dreamer 2
Wake up wake up

biggrin eek razz lol
