Prince - Prince Accepts Angels

Contact 6, 2010

Devout Jehovah's Witness Prince has revealed he believes in angels and says his faith has brought an ''incredible peace'' to his life.

The 'Purple Rain' singer has been a devout Jehovah's Witness - a form of Christianity whose followers believe the Bible is scientifically and historically accurate and the ultimate "source of truth" - since 2001 and his faith means he accepts angels, the winged messengers of God, exist.

When quizzed about his faith in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: "There are good angels and bad angels."

Prince - whose conversion to Jehovah's Witnesses was his mother Mattie Shaw's dying wish - goes out door-to-door to spread the word about his faith and try and get others to convert.

Although most people are surprised to have a pop superstar call at their house to talk about God, Prince insists most individuals are "cool" with him.

He explained: "Sometime people act surprised when I'm at their house, but mostly they're cool about it."

Admitting he sometimes disguises himself, he added: "My hair is capable of doing a lot of different things. I don't always look like Prince."

The 52-year-old music legend - who was famed for his sexually explicit lyrics, outrageous stage outfits and womanising ways at the height of his career in the 80s and early 90s - insists his religious beliefs have brought a balance to his life that he didn't have before.

Prince - who is currently dating Bria Valente - said: "There's an incredible peace in my life now and I try to share it with people."
