When he was there..

Sleeping in between the two of us

Its so subtle but really detailed for the story

Prince was pushing the buttons and crafted as kool would say..a masterpiece

Cool article. Much props for the Detroit's ONE and ONLY Elecrifying Mojo mention. cool

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

So many people are confused about what Prince is saying in that song.He should have provided a lyric sheet with the album smile

Sorry....it's simply "sexuality"......he is merely making some vocalizations before saying the word.

Prince is one the most homophobic artists I know. If there were only men in his audience at concerts, he would never perform again, let alone write another song. He does it all for the ladies, plain and simple.

I enjoyed this article a lot, and I'm glad that such attention was afforded to this early stage in Prince's career, but the author just asserts that the lyric is "bisexuality" without providing any source or information that proves him right. Idk if it's a particularly credible claim tbh.

And this author also seems to think that "When U Were Mine" the lyric "When he was there sleeping inbetween the 2 of us" indicates that the guy was there in actuality sleeping between the two of them, sort of a 3 way I suppose. He doesn't get that this song indicates Prince knew the girl was cheating on him, but didn't care, even when he knew the girl was thinking about the other guy (while she was sleeping with P). His interpretations of these songs are pretty far off imo. And he does sing, "she's the reason for my, uh (vocal noise), sexuality."

This. The writer (of the articles) would seem to be metaphorically challenged.

The ignorance and salaciousness of today's society leads the uninformed to misinterpret these old Prince lyrics. THose who fall victim to this new lowbrow dirty perspective that seems to be the rage will believe this incorrect interpretation because it fits the smut of the day.

Thanks for the laughs, arguments and overall enjoyment for the last umpteen years. It's time for me to retire from Prince.org and engage in the real world...lol. Above all, I appreciated the talent Prince. You were one of a kind.

Interesting. Anna Stesia has been my ALL-TIME favorite song by anyone, since I first dropped the needle on the Lovesexy LP, May 10th, 1988.

27 years later, I have yet to hear any "suspicious" lyrics on this song.

This is his most pesonally, written affirmation, of his rebirth at the time. I believe, if you think Anna Stesia has suspicious lyrics, you clearly do not understand the song and missed its entire meaning.

Isn't very clear and straight to the point that he talks about a girl cheating on him and just does't care as far as she stays with him. Sleepin in between the two of us is just his resignation on the situation. It's very clear, no space for bisexuality comment.

I think RJOnion is referring to this line in the first verse:

have U ever wanted to play with someone,you'd take anyone,boy or girl?

We've had threads in the past about those lyrics and what it means

I knew which lyrics he was referring to, the debate is as old, as the album itself.

Once again, if you took this lyric to mean something sexual, you don't understand the song.

Completely agree. This is one of my absolute favorites by Prince. This song doesn't even touch upon sexuality and is a very deep song, imho. And anyone that interprets those lines as being sexual, truly does not understand this song.

I agree. Unfortunately, people will read this article and take it as fact. They don't know, don't want to know the truth. They'd rather believe the worst of someone, even if it has no basis in fact, than to actually look into it themselves and find out what the true facts are.

Do you really think the writer is new to the world of Prince? There were a lot of people back in the day that surely wanted to believe the worst of Prince's lyrics, interpret them in a way that fit with their agenda and questioned who Prince was based on those lyrics. I'm reminded of these lyrics, "Am I black or white? Am I straight or gay? Controversy." That came out, when? People have been questioning Prince's sexuality and everything else about him from the beginning, and have tried to pass their interpretations off as fact. I would say it's more likely that the author isn't even close to the world of Prince to make such extreme extrapolations from those songs, though it's obvious they think they are of that world.
