Feathers seem like more likely a candidate for an addition to one of Prince’s signature outrageous outfits, but the singer recently discussed his belief of angels in an interview.
[lastfm]Prince[/lastfm] has been devout to his religion since 2001 and has cleaned up his past reputation for being sexually explicit and promiscuous. What religion has the “Purple Rain” singer talking feathered creatures and going door-to-door? Find out after the jump!

The 52-year-old pop god has said goodbye to he playboy persona to follow his beliefs as a Jehovah’s Witness’ a form of Christianity that believes that the Bible is absolute truth, both historically and scientifically.
Prince hasn’t given up the stage and microphone for a box on the street corner and megaphone, but he is taking the job of spreading the word of his beliefs seriously. It would be difficult to ignore the dying wish of your mother, who asked her megastar son to hit the streets and spread the word door-to-door. Prince explained, “Sometimes people act surprised when I’m at their house, but mostly they’re cool about it.”
Who wouldn’t be cool with Prince hanging out in your house!?
The singer admitted that he uses disguises, mostly in the form of varied hair styles. Prince explained:” My hair is capable of doing a lot of different things. I don’t always look like Prince.”
He was also recently interviewed and quizzed about his religious beliefs and he said, “There are good angels and bad angels.” We’ve seen this pop god shed his bad boy image for the nomination of a halo since he became a devout Witness.’
Are you going to think twice before ignoring the door the next time your bell rings—who knows it could be a solicitor, a member of the local church… or Prince?!
