Prince: 'The Internet Is Over'
"I really believe in finding new ways to distribute my music," pop legend Prince told the Daily Mirror in an exclusive interview. "The Internet's completely over," he said. "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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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." Of the title of his new album, he added: "I just think it's a year that really matters. These are very trying times." Prince's famous and longstanding battle against the web gained steam in 2007, when Prince declared his intention to file lawsuits against YouTube, eBay and The Pirate Bay for users' appropriation of his music. He's banned such sites from using it, and he's also refused to work with legal, legitimate outlets such as eMusic and iTunes. And don't try to find his official site; it's been shut down, as well. The singer-songwriter will give away his new album 20Ten with copies of The Mirror and Daily Record on July 10. The album will not be available to download. Read more at this location.
