Sans commentaires. Et à prendre avec des pincettes.
LOS ANGELES - USA - Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman are said to be furious at Prince's support of California's Proposition 8, and his statement against gays and lesbians.
It hasn't been a good week for Prince.
First he injured his leg while working on a new video and was unable to perform his door to door duties as a Jevohah's Witness, and then he upset Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman so much that neither one will speak to him now.
This is not good news for Prince's fans, who have all been clamouring for a reunion with The Revolution and who have been excited about rumours that Prince and The Revolution were set to reform and tour America next Summer.
What did Prince do to upset Wendy and Lisa so much?
While negotiations were underway to reform Prince and The Revolution, Prince was asked if he supported California's Proposition 8 to amend the state Constitution to restrict marriages to unions between men and women only.
Prince, in his characteristically enigmatic way, stated for the record: "It's probably not my place to say anything about this, but I do believe that in God's plan only a man and a woman should marry."
This may sound like a surprising view coming from a man who wrote lesbian antics into many of his songs, most notably the beginning of song Computer Blue off of Purple Rain. But Prince has changed his ways after he was introduced to fellow Jehovah's Witness Larry Graham and now won't even swear in his music, let alone write songs about steamy sex sessions in bathtubs.
We caught up with Wendy Melvoin, who was shopping at Whole Foods in Santa Monica, and asked her what she thought of Prince's comment.
"Man, sometimes Prince really makes my blood boil. First he refused to use Lisa's and my song -- which ended up being one of his biggest hits, I might add -- and now he's insulting gays and lesbians. If Prince really thinks that gays are so bad, then perhaps he should consider accepting no further revenue from his earlier music which has plenty of depictions of lesbians in them."
The question on everybody's mind, not least The Daily Squib's, was whether the Prince and The Revolution reunion was still on, despite Prince's unfortunate slip of the tongue.
"Hell no!" Wendy stated forcefully. "Until he calls Lisa and I up and apologizes to us personally we don't want anything to do with his projects again."
Messageboards debating the fate of Prince and The Revolution have been going crazy with fans trying to figure out what's going on, but The Daily Squib thinks it's safe to say that there won't be a reunion anytime soon.
And that, in a nutshell, is why Prince is having such a very bad week...
