Prince, (yeah, that’s an OLD pic) who helped inspire the Parental Advisory Sticker campaign, now has a no-expletive policy in his music. He says this was inspired by Muhammad Ali:
“Marsha Ambrosius, Lianne La Havas and Janelle Monae are all my sisters. We shouldn’t curse at them,” he said, referring to recent collaborators. “We need to treat them, and all people, like royalty. Did you ever hear Muhammad Ali curse? Would you curse in front of your kids or to your mother?”
You can read more about it in Essence magazine, whose cover he graces this month.
