Once again: Shut up and sing

Ah yes, more cultural and political enlightenment from our musical community:

It's fun being in Islamic countries, to know there's only one religion. There's order. You wear a burqa. There's no choice. People are happy with that. -- Prince

I wonder if Prince'd be "happy with that" if he had to live in an Islamic country. He'd have been in jail for blasphemy 20 years ago.

UPDATE: In a related matter, Tom Hanks says he'll be voting again for President Obama:

If you would have told me a few years ago that ‘don't ask, don't tell’ would be repealed and about a billion jobs at General Motors and Chrysler would have been saved because the president was smart enough and strong enough and bold enough to do so, I would have said, 'Wow. That's a good president, I think I'll vote for him again.'

He's probably exaggerating (like that scene in "Used Cars" where bad guy Jack Warden wants to sue good guy Kurt Russell for saying his car lot has "a jillion" cars), but then again, given the state of today's "progressives" ...

No, he'd have been stoned. Such public display of sexuality? He'd be toast.

Not to mention he wouldn't be free to sing his songs, speak his mind or practice his faith. If he really loved it the law and order so much he could easily move there. He certainly has the means.
