Like fellow pop superstar Michael Jackson, who once went door-to-door with religious tracts in Alabama, Prince was a Jehovah's Witness. Prince, 57, who died on Thursday, became a Jehovah's Witness in 2001. "I don't see it really as a conversion," Prince said in an interview with The New Yorker. "More, you know, it's a realization. It's like Morpheus and Neo in 'The Matrix.'"
