Prince, the pop music superstar whose fame crested more than a decade ago, is clawing his way back into the national limelight on the bodies of dead men like Michael Brown and Freddie Gray.
But he must not think the Prince audience cares a bit about police officers killed in the line of duty.
A new Prince song titled “Baltimore” came out the day before the formerly reclusive star’s scheduled Sunday performance at the Rally 4 Peace benefit concert in Baltimore, the Huffington Post reported.
It includes the lyrics “Does anybody hear us pray for Michael Brown and Freddie Gray?”
Also included are lyrics to make any leftist gun-grabber happy.
Are we gonna c another bloody day?
We’re tired of cryin’ & people dyin’
Let’s all take the guns away
With lyrics like that, Prince might be eyeing a spot in the 2016 Democratic presidential field.
Or maybe just chart-busting sales profiting from tragedy.
Prince was so big in his prime that he’ll be a big name until the day he dies, but this stab at a return to stardom is a little too obvious.
And many in the Twitterverse aren’t buying it.

@cnnbrk 2 criminals do not deserve the media attention. Fallen soldiers, Marines, police, law abiding citizens do.

@cnnbrk -How about praying for those business owners who lost their life savings due to the “friendly protestors”.

When will Prince write a song about the police officers ambushed and killed by thugs? #BlueLivesMatter

Will prince release a song called “stop dealing drugs when you already have 27 convictions and maybe the police will leave you alone”?

Just listened to Prince’s new song for Baltimore. Lost respect for him. He berates police officers and praises the thugs! #disgusting

Does Prince have a plan to “take all the guns away” without using guns? http://t.co/Ho5XtxhKZA
