Prince Rogers Nelson,(June 7,1958-April 21,2016) was born in Minneapolis,Minnesota,U.S.(see also best songs 884 and 487.)
‘Controversy’ was also the title of his forth studio Album released in 1981.
Prince wrote and produced the song as well as playing all the instruments,the female backing vocals are provided by Lisa Coleman.The song addresses speculation about Prince at that time,such as his sexuality,gender,religion and racial background and how he could not understand the curiosity surrounding him.Towards the middle of the song he recites the ‘Lords Prayer’ in full,which angered some who said it was blasphemous.probably adding even more- controversy.
‘I just can’t believe all the things people say,am I black or white am I straight or gay.’
