And the Lure Float Goes, "Plork!"

Problem: the celebrity you're interviewing is deadly dull, and you really need something good for a headline.

Solution: Go fishing:

When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, “God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’ ”

Props to the man for not shying away from saying what he thinks, and a big raspberry to whomever his publicist is for letting the interview spin out of control allowing him to do the same.

Interesting (and not wholly inaccurate) take on The Great Flood, with Noah and two-by-two and all that.

The disturbing part is why would a reporter ax Prince about this sort of thing at all? Why would anyone care what Prince thinks about social issues? I mean, wouldn't a better line of questioning might start with "So tell us about your latest CD..."???

Maybe he was hoping Prince would get freaky with him?
