i'm sick of prince editing out his suggestive lyrics!!!

d.m.s.r.- strip right down 2 your underwear changed 2 dance 2 the morning light. sexuality changed 2 spirituality. PRINCE has lost his mind and gotten away from who he used 2 be. PRINCE used to sing about uptown and setting your mind free. now it seems that cursing is the ultimate sin. the greatest comedians put in the curse words 2 make that better joke. prince did his classic nasty material because that was what came from his soul. jw has ruined his career!

It's his music, and he can do what ever he wants to with it. If he wants to change Let's Go Crazy into a song about ceiling fans, he can!!!

If you don't like it, sue him!!!

You're right, he can...

But rusty1 is right, the edits suck mostly.

As I said before, Prince follows his own path. His destination is what he calls 'the truth'.Actually, we don't really know what kind of truth is that and what it's all about. But the fact remains. All over the past decades, he used 2 change his looks most frequently and his sexiness conformed itself 2 his new situation: dirty (Dirty mind), hot and prophetical (1999), itchy and broken inside (Purple rain), ironic (Parade), intellectual (Sign O' the times), heveanly religious (Lovesexy) and so on. All that leads 2 where he is now.

It was simply inevitable.

Sometimes I do miss the way he used 2 be, but nostalgia is a state of mind.

And most of all; Prince is now the result of everything we loved before, which is:

Greater than ever.

Yeah, I'm a real zealot!!!

I'm here all the time talking about his hair, what color clothing he wears, and who he's currently waking up next too!!!

I also think that he isn't perfect. He's not a god, he's a human being that makes mistakes.

I'm sure you make mistakes at your job. Like today, I bet you gave a guy the regular bucket when he asked for Extra Crispy!!!

Excuse me, but I thought this was a Prince fan message board. I thought this was a place for people who like Prince's music and want to discuss it!!! I must've stumbled on one of those message boards where people bitch about how unfair life is!!!

I must be on FalloutBoy.org!!!

How dare I actually like Prince!!! How dare I actually have an opinion that doesn't involve the word "asshole"!!! How dare I believe that an artist should do whatever they want with his or her art!!!

The nerve of me!!! I should call my mother and tell her she sucked as a parent!!! Because Mr.Snootchie Bootchies here doesn't believe that people should actually like Prince on a Prince fan site!!!

Your idiocy is unrelenting. But thank you so much for proving my point once again. Prior to this post, where someone bothered to call you on your obvious fanaticism (regardless of your opinion on his hair, etc., which I'm sure you've offered elsewhere), have you ever expressed an opinion about Prince that does not firmly align your lips to his ass? All signs point to No. Have I ever expressed an opinion here that is in fact in admiration of the man? Simple research on your part would indicate that's a fact. What lengths would Prince have to go to to get you to say something negative about him? Perhaps he could anally rape your beloved mother with a chainsaw? Even then, you'd probably want to be first in line for that DVD release.

And while we're at it, that's an interesting double standard that you have from way atop your high horse. If you think you're entitled to your opinion about Prince, so am I. Yet more than once, you've taken issue with the fact that mine are not always as glowing as your own. Clearly, you share Prince's beliefs regarding limiting free expression.

I'd rather be handing out Extra Crispy whatevers than cleaning toilets, which must be your profession of choice, since you're so full of shit. But you go & have yourself a good day now.

I'm not a fan of jw either but Prince is a grown ass man. He does what he wants and you should know that by now for as long as you've been a fan. We, me included, need to stop blaming JW for everything. Yes it seems to be a motivating factor for what compels Prince to do what he does in a lot of ways but like I said, he makes his own choices. You either work with it and stay or you don't and leave. It's that simple.
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

Indeed he is a "grown ass man," but somewhere along the way, someone snipped his musical balls off.

If the suggestive lyrics that he once used don't fit what he believes in now, he certainly has the right to change his own lyrics.Those are his lyrics after all. He would be a hypocrite if he would still use lyrics that go against what he currently believes.People have the right to change and better themselves.
As people mature they change their mind about certain things. It would be a shame if Prince would still use the profanities and suggestive language he used when he was in his twenties. Prince still looks very young, but don't let his youthful looks fool you. Prince is no longer a rebellious, young man who likes to shock the world with his suggestive lyrics and behavior. He is a mature man and there is nothing wrong if he acts like one.
Everybody who doesn't like the new version can always listen to the old lyrics.
love the one who is Love!

i agree that listening to the edited version of prince's songs is like seeing a yellow smiley face where the mona lisa once used to smirk.

but, he is free to re-work his songs just as we are free to not listen to the newer versions

I dont see why there is any reason to get upset by the absence of suggestive lyrics or swearing, like the other 95% of the population are giving about its inclusion.

Not sure if I know I am saying, this is way out of my depth having read a few more posts, oh well, confused
If it were not for insanity, I would be sane.

At least he's not Paul McCartney & playing the same songs the same way as they are on the 40 year old records. How dull!
