18 Nov New PRINCE Demo “Da Bourgeoisie” FREE Download! Listen Now!!!
PRINCE has released a new demo entitled “Da Bourgeoisie” and like last month’s “The Sweeter She Is” live rehearsal track, it was given to a Twitter follower to get out!
Around 1:41 A.M., 3RDEYEGIRL (Prince’s official Twitter account) asked “Who wants to deliver this stolen Prince demo to the needy?” Hmm. To instead of 2. No caps lock issue. People were responding to the tweet with a frenzy….until one was chosen.
@3RDEYEGIRL *RAISES HAND*

Jshua was asked for his email address and sent the demo. Cool deal.

Update: The song is now only for purchase!
“Da Bourgeoisie” is the track of the demo and Prince finds out that the girl he is with is getting it on with another girl. The song is a funk work out and we wonder what instruments if not all that Prince is playing. Hannah Welton confirmed she is playing drums on the track.
Prince has tackled the lesbian situation before with “Bambi” where he tried to turn a lesbian straight. “Come on baby take my hand, I’m gonna show you what it’s like to be loved by a man.”
“I guess a man is only good for a rainy day/Maybe your just another bearded lady at the cabaret/Ray Charles even saw you in the past before he saw me/Because nothing like you ever lasts for eternity.”
Will a song like “Da Bourgeoisie” cause a little bit of controversy while “Bambi” gets a pass?-DocFB

Musgrave sfcub69 It’s about your bunk complaint whining about tolerance. not really wanting to argue the point, cuz the funk is the most important thing. It’s comparable and just saying.
MusgravePosted at 21:03h, 19 November
sfcub69 Musgrave the Song “IS” about Infidelity,….. Who brought Race into this??? Not me,…….
sfcub69Posted at 16:08h, 19 November
Musgrave I think the song is about infidelity, but dude–how right wing of you to say this. By your logic, I guess we should also tolerate white people using racial slurs in their music, too?
sfcub69Posted at 16:00h, 19 November
What you have to understand is that when closeted singers in the 80s wanted to reference their same-sex love without doing it explicitly, they wrote in 2nd person. So the criticism of this song is valid on that level. However, after digging a little deeper, I can see that it is about infidelity, just as you say. It could also be that Prince wrote this song the same way as he did “Cream” – while looking in the mirror (as he said during the sit-down set of his Musicology tour), which could be another case of “trying to be a saint but realizing you’re a sinner,” realization, which harkens back to the “God” speech in the Syracuse video from 1985.

RakaBash Although it DOES smack of exploitation, given the “you” he’s talking about in the first line, which closeted gay artists from the 80s (and for all we know, this song could have been written in the 80s), after digging below the surface, yours is the conclusion I have come to. It could also be that Prince wrote this song the same as he wrote “Cream” – while looking in the mirror. The saint that realizes he’s just another sinner and things of that metaphoric vein. A reminiscence of the “God” speech in the Syracuse video.

Speaking 4 MYSELF, U Can Stamp “Hubris” On My Butt If U Want
2…TATTOO It. I Stand By My Interpretation. But, Then Again, I Didn’t Write The

Of Course There R Those Of Us (Myself Included) Who Feel Compelled 2 Put On Our
“True Funk Soldier” Armour & Come 2 The Defense Of The Man When There R Those
Quick 2 Judge. Glad This All Gave U Such A Good “KEEK KEEK”, Anyway ;).
But, Alas, Ur Point
Is Also Eloquently Put, Well Taken & METICULOUS & It Re-Affirms What I
Already Know & Should Stand By…PRINCE KNOWS WHAT HE’S DOING & He’s
Produced Subject Matters A LOT More Controversial Than THIS (I.E. “SISTER”).
We Needn’t Come 2

DarrenBrown umm… some things are better left unsaid. lol.
cockasaurousPosted at 11:10h, 19 November
RakaBash AMEN! Everyone is looking for a scandal, ugh… not considering alternatives. Anyway, people will think what they want, always have…. thanks Prince for sharing.
Mark SeydelPosted at 10:59h, 19 November
cockasaurous Me. I care.
cockasaurousPosted at 10:58h, 19 November
NOT SPEAKING FOR PRINCE… I cannot, neither can neither of you… but contrary to popular belief some people still think homosexuality isn’t for them and consider it, well… Regardless of how ignorant that might seem to those who do not. You have your opinions, let others have theirs.
cockasaurousPosted at 10:55h, 19 November
Mark Seydel … like someone gives a damn that you like him less and less… lol, what’s gonna happen? Have several seats!
Mark SeydelPosted at 10:18h, 19 November
bumpsquad2 Thank you!
RakaBashPosted at 10:12h, 19 November
For the people saying this tune is homophobic. Have they considered that “Dirty World” could mean cheating? Jumping to conclusions that the tune is hateful is unfair to Prince. If Prince used more colorful language like Eminem (an artist who has said more homophobic things than Prince has allegedly said), then it would be more pause for concern. The song is about a man who learns this his woman has been cheating on him with another woman. The man would be bitter if his girl cheated on him with a male or female.
bumpsquad2Posted at 09:53h, 19 November
I can see some people still don’t understand what the fuss is (And I can understand why as it might be a language context they or even Prince haven’t considered) but here’s an example that might help
Imagine a white male artist sings a song with the lyrics
Yesterday I saw you kicking it with another man of a different race … last time i checked you said you left the dirty world
Would you still think the song was just about cheating?
Mark SeydelPosted at 08:30h, 19 November
What? Wait! The song is gone? Such a shame.
Mark SeydelPosted at 08:28h, 19 November
Chocolatsis65 I might be the devil and look like it? Insulting someone NEVER get’s your “point” taken seriously. “Bearded lady”? And you say it’s about what? LOL
Chocolatsis65Posted at 07:05h, 19 November
Mark Seydel lifelinz No but u might be the devil, that photo kinda looks like it, and so what ur a fan since blah blah if u thought 13 yrs his (P’s) views changed and u couldn’t agree… Go AwAy then.
I want to spit when i think of eeeever kissing my baby daddy again whom I thought was the most beautiful man in the world at one time, but he’s hateful and mean AND a fake even to his own son. So yeah when I think about being that intimate with him I throw up a little in my mouth lol wanna kissme? 🙂

The responses posted regarding the lyrics are really quite laughable.
Reading lyrics which are not particularly verbose and trying to infer their intended meaning with such limited context is hubris. Extending that to ‘taking offence on behalf of The Homosexual community’ is equally arrogant and much more assumptive.
Noone can truly speak on behalf of “a whole group” unless elected by that group through fair and honest means, and with an ongoing, freeflowing bidirectional feedback mechanism (which i have never seen) to enable the group to continue dialogue with the individual representing them.
HumptynessPosted at 21:50h, 18 November
could “dirty world” stand for “cheating world” ?
Mark SeydelPosted at 21:23h, 18 November
DarrenBrown Preach, brother! Amen!
DarrenBrownPosted at 19:06h, 18 November
Prince your an ass, you flutter around like a girl then get angry
because you’ve attracted lesbians.. stop being a girl and be a man and
maybe you’ll attract some straight women .
stop blaming gay people because you’re a freaking mess…
song is not good .the voice is on pitch but sounding like a old persons
voice…your too old to sing lyrics like this… your over 50, if
you’re straight you should be settled down with grandchildren by now not
singing about being single and lesbians .the problem is you.
Act your age not your shoe size
Mark SeydelPosted at 18:31h, 18 November
lifelinz Move on? You’re a riot! Opposing view = move on. Wow! Sure, uh,O.K. I’ll just go because you said so. You do realize that a comments section is about discussion and sharing of views? All views. Not just yours. You really think you’re that special that only your views matter? Prince is a master of his craft, but, that does not mean he is the most benevolent person to ever walk the face of the earth. Why do you think he needs his cult? He failed, somewhere, on his own. He’s not a god. Nor are you.
lifelinzPosted at 17:29h, 18 November
Mark Seydel lifelinz So now we get the bottom of your issue. Prince’s religious choice of the cult Jehovah’s Witness (yes, I said cult) means he being a religious homophobic bigot. So by your logic we must interpret the lyrics to Guitar the same way … where is also uses the word “dirty” followed by the “waist” metaphor in the second line: “U’re gettin dirty at the club again; I’m usually round Ur waist like a chain but then” I take interpretation to mean “lying” in this song, but I could also see it as meaning doing the “nasty” … no matter sexual preference. However you stretch even further by implying he judging homosexuality from a religious standpoint. Nothing is the song is religious, hence I take your position as ridiculous … which is my prerogative. And since you are liking Prince less and less from original post, I don’t understand why you are still here and tolerate such blatant bigotry? Move on.

Mark Seydel AnthonyLaMoriello My interpretation of the song. Strong feelings after being betrayed, and I thought of that lyric.
