Prince: all the contradictions intact

I remember a late-80s interview in which Bono said "I feel closer to Prince than you might think," or something like that. The always-thoughtful Camassia reflects here on Prince, U2, and how the two have related to the church and reflected the culture. Excerpt: "It’s strange for me to remember that back in the ’80s, Prince probably sang about God more often and more explicitly than any other top-40 act. Even U2 were somewhat veiled in their religious references back then, at least with their radio singles. But while Bono has been building bridges with American Christendom, Prince seems determined to be the red-headed stepchild..."
