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
You 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:
“Da Bourgeoisie” is the title of the new song, not Ray Charles, Bearded Lady or anything else prejudicial.

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.
