Prince refused to sing risque songs Cream and SEXY MOTHERF***ER at his ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME induction on Monday (15MAR04) - because of his new found religion.

The flamboyant singer has embraced the Jehovah's Witness faith, and because of his religion he now refuses to play his famously sexual songs.

A friend tells website PAGESIX, "Prince feels he has closed the chapter on that overtly sexual chapter in his life."

Prince said at the ceremony in New York, "I embarked on a spiritual journey more fascinating than I could ever imagine, but a word to the wise to the young artists without spiritual guidance. Too much freedom can lead to a spiritual decline."
