Prince's albums covers censored

Unbelievable that Prince's albums covers are censored due to stupid modesty in Emirates flights. Look at the Dirty Mind cover: hips are hidden. The Parade album is the best: as it is not Prince of course but someone else who's striking the same pose. Chest is of course not shown!!!! Lovesexy cover is focused on Prince's face and not his body as it would B "offensive".

Curious thing is that lyrics of songs are not censored: I could hear that Nikki was masturbating with a magazine... eek

I used to own a (bootleg) Lovesxy cassette from Bahrain. The bootleggers had drawn on a pair of blue trousers (pants, for Americans) to conceal his legs entirely. Wish I had the pic, but the tape is long gone.

Hey look on the bright side...at least they have music at all! Emirates is a great airline. Took them to/from Dubai earlier this year!
The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

If they're aren't going to show the true and full glory of PRINCE and his art, then they needn't have it at all!!!

If I were President, I'd declare war on the U. A. E for this travesty.

Let's just consider it his subtle commentary on the stupidity of why they're having him strike the pose. You know they held the original up and said, "Here, do this."

It looks like Jewish homosexual artiste - Ian Benardo lol

.

He was a very camp and big mouthed guy who was on American Idol and that dancing show. His videos from the 2000s are viral and all over youtube.

Not sure what being Jewish or homosexual has to do with anything, but it's not Ian. I know who you're talking about.

It's not about being anti-Islam, but rather just not being ignorant.

You should read the Qu'ran. Like, sit and read it over the course of a few weeks. It is a religion of peace.

And yes, I have sat and read it, front to back, before you go there. Ultimately I'm not sure why anyone has to be "anti" anything. Why not spend the short time we have here on the good things? It's just easier, and 100% more fulfilling.

Islam is no more or less peaceful that Christianity or Judaism in its source material as all three religions share a large number of the same stories in their "holy" scriptures. The only difference is reasonable HUMANS decided to stop following the lame parts of their religious books during their respective reformations as they realized religion is nothing on which to base a stable society. Islam has yet to have their reformation so the differing strains of Islam are still battling and the lunactics that follow that religion are causing havoc. Note that the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful and causing no problems whatsoever. When you look at the sheer number adherents compared to the number of known terrorists it's probably higher than 99% that are causing no trouble but are being burdened as though they are. P.S. It's all fake anyway.

It's been discussed before, but it's too bad Prince didn't decide to crop the Lovesexy album art similar to that image above. The album would much likely have sold better.

You're not sure what being Jewish has to do with though?

But, then it wouldn't be Prince, would it.

He was described as a "Jewish homosexual".

I would rather have all my teeth pulled out with no anesthesia than poison my mind with that stone age mumbo jumbo. Same goes for the Christian bible or any other religious book full of fairy tales which have left the world in a state of constant war since day one.

He was described as a "Jewish homosexual".

I used those words, as they are an anathema to must Muslims. Muslim hate Jews and being gay is punishable death sentence, that is why they have been fighting Israel since it breathed life and why the incredibly liberated Isis Muslims drop gays off 6 storey buildings on chairs to their death, so using a camp looking guy with semitic features is kind of the opposite of what a narrow minded Muslim society wouldwant todo to express censorship of an overtly sexual artiste.

.

The fact remains, is that the rest of the free and less free Christian and Jewish world will tolerate gays and love Jewish ones (Nathan Lane and Harvey Firestine along with Josh Groban) yet Muslims foam at the mouth over them being abdominations and evil to their faith along with the fanatical evangelical christians of the American south and mountains.

I'm not saying the artwork is fake, I'm saying Abrahamic religions are complete fiction. Sorry if that was vague. Reading back over it I can see how you might think I was talking about the artowrk.
