Prince Upset About Gay Marriage 'Misquote'

Pop superstar PRINCE is livid with New Yorker magazine editors after he was misrepresented as an opponent of gay marriage in a published article.
The Purple Rain hitmaker is reportedly “very angry” about comments attributed to him in a recent interview.
According to the article, “When asked about his perspective on social issues - gay marriage, abortion - Prince tapped his Bible and said, ‘God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out.’”
But a Prince source tells Internet blogger Perez Hilton, “What His Purpleness actually did was gesture to the Bible and said he follows what it teaches, referring mainly to the parts about loving everyone and refraining from judgment. We’re very angry he was misquoted.”

That's exactly what I thought when I read the article. Where in the *hell* did this SO CALLED journalist (probably just a bored home blogger!) get the idea that PRINCE is AGAINST gay's getting married?? Just ANOTHER manipulation from the MEDIA to acquire readers. PRINCE did NOT say anything even close to what they claim he said. They twisted his words and formed a very insulting and volatile statement in order to stir things up. It's despicable what these "reporters" and news media get away with. I'm really starting to think we need to CENSOR some of these loosers who call themselves journalists or have the audacity to LIE and make up news.
