Well, he did then say "I am something you will never understand!" - so don't expect to!

Isn't it just one of the most intriguing couplets to open up a pop song with - really draws your attention to the lyrics from the off!

i really don't think he's confused about his sexuality. what he's doing, and has always done, is to subvert stereotypical notions of gender & sexuality (just think if i was your girlfriend. or anna stesia) in order to make listeners think and to question theirselves.

in a world that loves putting people in boxes, challenging them on fundamental areas like this is a brave move, and for me has always been one of the main things (outside the music itsslef) that puts prince head & shoulders above most other artists who operate within a far more limited frame of reference.

Agreed! IMHO, Prince understands the transcendence of gender--his original symbol is an, ahem, symbol of this. Just like he understands the transcendence of colour, with his allusion to the rainbow in various songs, such as "Papa".

It's a song about Jesus Christ. In fact many times in concert he has said "he's your messiah and your the reason why". Cuz U, eye would die 4 U. (This is getting good). I may have to go home and plow the dust off that one.
