Prince should have eaten meat
From an interview way back:
VT: How, when and why did you and Mayte become vegetarians?
The Artist: I’ve not eaten red meat for about 10 years now. Mayte for a lot longer. I’ve always had a preference for all things vegetarian but not until recently did I find out how good they were for you (in a physical sense).
VT: How far have you taken your vegetarianism?
The Artist: We don’t eat anything with parents. Complete vegans–both of us!
VT: Many people become vegetarian out of concern for their health, but I know that’s not what motivated you and Mayte. Can you tell us how your beliefs affected this decision?
The Artist: Thou shalt not kill means just that! We don’t have to kill things to survive. In fact, the complete opposite happens: If you kill, you will die.
VT: That sounds pretty dire. Speaking of dire: Some people think vegetarianism is all about denying yourself pleasure. Have you found this to be true? You don’t strike me as the kind of guy who thinks sensual pleasure is negative.
The Artist: Mayte and I get no pleasure from playing Russian roulette with food. Eating anything ridden with bacteria raises your chances for disease. Being sick is not pleasurable.
That Prince had the flu appears to cover for an opiate overdose. Heroin?
Looks like Prince’s vegan died didn’t prevent him from getting sick and dying as he claimed it would. It’s much healthier to eat McDonalds and not abuse drugs than it is to be a vegan drug-abuser.
