Yes, he did. I heard it. I can't remember which boot I heard. I did listen to a highlights boot of several of the shows as well as a hour long compilation of different piano performances of his...So, I can't remember where I heard it.

He also sang ass at the Webby Awards in 2006 when he sang "Don't Play Me".. Apparently, Prince was too much of an "ass" man to stop saying that world entirely. Prince owed his swear jar at least 40 dollars for those two missteps...LOL.

I mentioned 2006 and last year...those are recent.

I am not sure how many times he did Girls and Boys. I think he was doing it in 2011 but i can't remember if he sang the word ass.

He still had dirty songs obviously even if he took out the obvious curse words

Could be 'ass' or 'eyes' - hard to tell.

Last performed in concert on the tour on 24 February (Show 1).

As Dodger says, it's diffficult to tell whether he was singing ''ass" or "eyes" from the circulating recording.


To my ears, during his penultimate performance on 21 February (Show 1):

http://www.princevault.co...ary_2016-1


he sang "eyes"

and on 20 February (Show 1):

http://www.princevault.co...ary_2016-1


he sang "ass".

Seriously, does it matter if he sang the word "ass" or not? Does it matter if I say it on Saturday and go to a church on Sunday. Puh-lease. rolleyes What a non-topic.

Free your mind...and your ass will follow.

Yes there was one show where it sounded like he said it. The guy is human it's possible to slip up. But at one of the Aussie P&M after-show parties the DJ there was instructed that he couldn't play any songs with profanity and when he started playing Head one of Prince's minders told him Prince wanted him to turn it off immediately.
