Eh, come again? Notoriously media-shy pint-sized warbler Prince has given a rare interview to a British tabloid, in which he heralds the ‘death’ of the Internet.
It’s over, kids. OVAH.
Prince tells the Daily Mirror : “The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it.
“The internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”
Not surprisingly, he won’t be releasing his new album, 20Ten, on iTunes. He’ll be giving away the album with British papers The Daily Mirror and The Daily Record – as he did with 2007’s Planet Earth.
So there you have it, the internet is evil, and we’re all doomed, according toPrince. Get clicking while you can, kids! Preferably while listening to Prince’s new album, obv. The net might stink, but a boy’s still got to make a living.
