After years of shaking those hips, Prince is in need of double hip surgery.

According to eurweb.com, entertainment columnist Roger Friedman is reporting that Prince now has two bad hips and is in desperate need of double hip replacement, yet continues to refuse surgery based on religious grounds.

News of Prince needing a hip replacement first surfaced in 2005. Prince who is a Jehovah’s Witness, does not believe in blood transfusions, according to Friedman.
