Prince says Ali’s no-cussing policy inspired him to adopt the same mentality in his music. “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?” This is coming from the guy who wrote “Darling Nikki” and “Erotic City”. I wonder if he’ll bleep himself when he sings those songs?
