Prince Releases “Da Bourgeoisie,” New Single With Anti-LGBT Lyrics: LISTEN

Prince, once considered the high priest of sex-positive attitudes, has released a new single, “Da Bourgeoisie,” and it’s surprisingly anti-bisexual.

At least we think so—it’s not the most intelligible song. Take a read:.

Yesterday I saw you kickin’ it with another girl
princeYou was all wrapped up around her waist
Last time I checked, you said you left the dirty world
Well it appears that wasn’t the case

Hey, I see you undercover like the CIA
Snatching little wigs from another bouquet – that’s French
I guess a man’s only good for a rainy day
Maybe you’re just another bearded lady at the cabaret

I wish I never kissed your (spits) ugh
Doesn’t replace the memory

Prince, who is now the mysterious lead singer of 3RDEYEGIRL,  tweeted the song earlier today:

So is Prince just testifying about some woman that did him wrong? Or calling bisexuals inevitably unfaithful—or bourgeoisie?

It wouldn’t be the first time Prince has swam in anti-gay waters:  In 2008, the Artist told The New Yorker he was against marriage equality: “God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’” 

Yes, enough indeed.
