Well, dang. Just a few days after our one-month anniversary Prince says the internet is a done deal.
In his recent interview with Mirror he talked about his qualms with the World Wide Web and how he’s boycotted it. In the past he’s refused to release his videos to YouTube, music to iTunes and even shut down his official website.
As reported by the 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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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.
You know what, Prince. It’s all good. We still love you and will be looking forward to “20Ten” releasing. We have to admit… we do miss the music video aspect of MTV.
