I feel the same about Prince as I did when he was in his hey-day; I'm just not gonna like the guy, ever! He just doesn't play the kind of music that I like, and his somewhat effeminate style deffinitely turns me away. I'm not sure why it bothers me so, maybe becasue there was an effeminite guy who worked at a place where I washed dishes as a teen. he thought he was something special and that we lowly dishwashers should jump when he spoke. He was merely a receptionist, but drove me nuts. I don't smoke, and never have. But the day I quit that job, I purposely lit up a big cigar so that I could extinguish it in his ever-present cocktail. The imagery is still strong when I see an effeminate guy. It's a simple case of guilt by association, especially if they have an over-size ego, which Prince deffinitely has.
Don't know why I'm going on about this, or even trying to justify my feelings. I just don't like the guy. I guess it's becasue I try so hard not to be predjudice about any group just because of some characteristic. I guess I'm trying to justify my feelings to myself.
Now there's a bit of self-evaluation for ya.
