Prince hates the internet

Prince is giving away his new album with a UK paper - again. Read the Daily Mirror's interview with His Purpleness. (Also check their story on how Prince turned his life around)

"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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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."

Bob Lefsetz talks about Prince's comments here ('Prince's nonsense'), noting that , "You build your career online today, it’s almost as if Prince were railing against record shops in the eighties, when he broke through.  If you weren’t in the shop, you don’t mean diddly squat, if you’re not online, you’re out of the discussion."
