Prince: Internet age is over, digital gadgets are no good

Be warned: Digital gadgets are no good for you, says Prince.

Music legend Prince has claimed the age of the internet is over after again refusing to sell his new CD-only album online.

The eccentric Purple Rain singer, who has decided to give his 27th album 20Ten away exclusively in the Daily Mirror this weekend, reckons the online age will soon be as irrelevant as MTV has become in recent years.

While insisting that he believes in new ways of distributing his music, he says: “The internet is 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.”

As well as his lack of love for online music portals, Prince also can't stand computers and digital gadgets, which are probably the only way a new generation of listeners are every going to sample his greatness.

Presumably, communicating with The Mirror via morse code, he added: "All these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that cant be good for you.”

This isn't the first time Prince has clashed with the online revolution. He's filed lawsuits against Pirate Bay, YouTube and eBay in the past, claiming misuse of his music.
