The ‘Purple Rain’ singer believes strict Middle Eastern countries which make their laws based on the Muslim religion and dictate what their citizens can do and wear cannot just be dismissed as oppressive and wrong.
When asked what he would say to Muslim women who are unhappy to be forced to wear burqas – which cover the wearer’s entire body apart from their eyes – he replied: “There are people who are unhappy with everything. There’s a dark side to everything. I don’t want to get up on a soapbox. My view of the world, you can debate that forever.” Strange words indeed from a singer who’s guitar is shaped like a penis.
