Prince Accepts Angels

Prince believes in angels.

The 'Purple Rain' singer has been a devout Jehovah's Witness - a form of Christianity whose followers believe the Bible is scientifically and historically accurate and the ultimate "source of truth" - since 2001 and his faith means he accepts angels, the winged messengers of God, exist.

When quizzed about his faith in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: "There are good angels and bad angels."

Prince - whose conversion to Jehovah's Witnesses was his mother Mattie Shaw's dying wish - goes out door-to-door to spread the word about his faith and try and get others to convert.

Although most people are surprised to have a pop superstar call at their house to talk about God, Prince insists most individuals are "cool" with him.

He explained: "Sometime people act surprised when I'm at their house, but mostly they're cool about it."

Admitting he sometimes disguises himself, he added: "My hair is capable of doing a lot of different things. I don't always look like Prince."

The 52-year-old music legend - who was famed for his sexually explicit lyrics, outrageous stage outfits and womanising ways at the height of his career in the 80s and early 90s - insists his religious beliefs have brought a balance to his life that he didn't have before.

Prince - who is currently dating Bria Valente - said: "There's an incredible peace in my life now and I try to share it with people."
