Prince Quits The Internet
Hate the internet? You’re not alone. Pop star Prince has joined with our nation’s luddite grandmothers and condemned the internet for being, like, so totally over.
The pop legend explained that he has decided to quit the internet an interview with The Mirror (via The Superficial):
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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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.
Prince decided to close down his official website and his newest album will be released in CD format only.
We don’t really understand Prince’s “computers filling your head with numbers” thing (or do we understand it too well?) but if he doesn’t want to sell his album online that is his own business.
We hate to tell him this but most fans are going to have to import his CD onto their computers so they can listen to his songs on their iPods, iPhones or MP3 players so, he hasn’t completely cut out the evil computers and “digital gadgets” out of the equation.
What do you think of Prince’s anti-internet opinions?
