Prince is backing America's FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC) in its crackdown on indecent broadcasting because he thinks culture is "in big trouble".

The pop superstar, who has become a committed Jehovah's Witness, has removed his racy songs from his live performances and believes the airwaves need to be cleaned up.

He says, "All you see on television are debased images. Whether you believe it or not, black people do not want to see images of people wearing bulletproof vests."
