The Proposition 8 ruling has remained a hot topic since the November 4 election (for those who aren’t familiar, it overturned gay marriage in California), and while doing a profile of Prince’s house, a New Yorker reporter opted to ask Prince how he felt about the ruling (and abortion rights). In response, Prince tapped his bible and had this to say:
"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.’"
Well, that seems like a pretty straightforward quote delivered with the appropriate nastiness, but now Prince is claiming he was misquoted, the reporter never used a recorder, and made the quote up.
So all this means one of two things: either Prince is against gay marriage, and doesn’t want his fans to know about that, or he is for gay marriage, and regrets his quote. We probably won’t ever know. [Perez Hilton]
