New Prince Song "Da Bourgeoisie" Lined With Homophobic Lyrics
Prince released a new song today, and along with it, an alert to Twitter followers that track is not, in fact, titled "Bearded Lady," therefore it's not prejudicial. Though the upbeat new track from the iconic artist is actually called "Da Bourgeoisie," it does deliver offensive lyrics that play on the ick-gay people! prejudice.
Not prejudicial? What do you think? Here are the lyrics:
Yesterday I saw you kickin’ it with another girl
You was all wrapped up around her waist
Last time I checked, you said you left the dirty world
Well it appears that wasn’t the case
Hey, I see you undercover like the CIA
Snatching little wigs from another bouquet – that’s French
I guess a man’s only good for a rainy day
Maybe your just another bearded lady at the cabaret
I wish I never kissed your (spits in disgust) ugh
Doesn’t replace the memory
Prince has made his disgust of gays clear in the past, so the lyrics to his new song wouldn't be quite shocking.
Here's the full track, if you're so inclined:
