Skip to comments.Touré: Prince Was a 'Conservative' and 'Republican'

Will this stem the MSM's flood of deserved praise for Prince? It turns out that Touré--better known in these parts as a former spoke in MSNBC's since-cancelled Cycle--is also a Prince biographer, his book published in 2013.
Appearing on With All Due Respect today, Touré cited two sources: Prince's former sound engineer, and a member of his band, for the proposition that Prince was a "conservative" and a "Republican." Touré embraced the notion himself, but offered a pejorative notion of what it means to be a conservative: "I am making money, I'm successful, I want this money and this success protected . . . When you are rich, you want status quo."

Interesting: Prince biographer Touré says he was a “conservative” and a “Republican.”
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
He was a JW too I heard.
Musical Genius, my (BLEEP!)
yes, he was...He also was very critical of the vulgar, sexually explicit music of today, calling it trash...
LOL. Also under report was that he was the worlds biggest jerk. Of course I mean this in the best possible way ;->
He committed suicide because his Vanity died. Dead at 57. Coinkydink? I think not.
I love how Prince guarded his music. Too many artists would sell their Mother for a nickel and a music video, but Prince was having none of it. Prince also hated YouTube, Spotify, and digital downloads. Not only was he a legend, he was a throw-back as well.
JW don’t vote, don’t salute the flag & don’t celebrate birthdays.
Conservative and Republican?
Why the hell was the little peter-puffer in Baltimore last year singing a specially written eulogy/love song to Freddie Gray and Michael Brown? A song where he mentions them both by name? Did he sing for the lives of the cops destroyed by these thugs?
Like that line of his where a girl is carrying around USED condoms?
A throwback and a liberal racist. Only liberal racists write songs in memory of Freddie Gray and Michael Brown.
Just some opinions, as far as I can tell.
Does it matter?
Too bad. Could have been Trump’s running mate.
All these artists have to have a "keeping it real" moment. Obviously, I don't agree with Prince giving a concert to thugs, but it still doesn't diminish his overall work.
Too bad. Could have been Trumps running mate.
He’s still a racist liberal democrat. He may be more talented than God Almighty himself with a guitar, but he’s still a racist liberal democrat.
I LOVE Springsteen’s music, but he’s still sub-human, anti-American, filth; lower than monkey vomit and absolutely revolting.
Another boring week or more of tributes to the latest dead junkie highlighting his/her ability to walk on water (in the northern winter) and praises likening their life to the second coming. In other words, another week of boring BS by the MSM and Progressive SFBs!
