Singer Michael Bolton has urged expectant parents to watch scary movie THE EXORCIST to prepare them for raising a child.

The 51-year-old rocker won custody of his daughters ISA, 28, HOLLY, 26 and TARYN, 24 after his divorce from former wife MAUREEN 13 years ago.

But he insists being a single parent is similar to dealing with the horror film's character REGAN MacNEIL, who is possessed by the devil.

He explains, "Fifteen through 19, raising daughters is a lot like watching The Exorcist. I tell people that if they want to get ready for raising daughters, just go see those scary movies.

"Seriously. And if you're a father, you need a translator to let you know what the hell is going on. It's not possible to understand."
