Prince, whose only current claim to fame seems to be wearing stupid turtlenecks with his fugly-ass image slapped over them, is now declaring the Internet over, despite probably having no idea how the Internet works or even how to turn on a computer. Whatever, shouldn’t this guy be off somewhere baking cookies in a tree or some shit?
Unlike most other rock stars, he has banned YouTube and iTunes from using any of his music and has even closed down his own official website. He says: “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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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.” SOURCE
Ummm, yeah. No offense, but considering this is coming from the guy who sued a fan for using a clip of his song for a video about her baby daughter, this is less of an all-encompassing statement and more like an old man yelling at them young whippersnappers to get off his lawn. The man is literally a bathrobe and a pair of slippers away from being the Crazy Cat Lady from The Simpsons.
