Forever the forerunner of supposedly hip trends, and questionably taste (such as turning yourself into a symbol, and rooting for the Vikings even after they corralled Brett Farve into yet ANOTHER season of "old timers" play) Prince has announced that the internet is "over". Also, he will be releasing the Strokes album tomorrow, and Paul McCartney is dead.

The pop icon has banned his music from Youtube and iTunes, unlike 99% of the music industry. He is also very fond of phallic instruments. But he is definitely a little off his rocker when he makes claims about the internet being dead, especially in a time when information is as ubiquitous as water, and iPhone 4 exists. Observe [via The Daily Swarm]:

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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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


Riiiiiiiiight. Prince eliminated his official websites, but still has a Wikipedia page, so that's a webFAIL. His new album 20Ten will only be a physical release (mostly as a free CD with newspapers and magazines, according to Billboard), so I guess we'll have to buy a newspaper for the first time in ten years.

No more internet, huh? I guess Baeble needs a new home! TV has proven a nice weekend getaway so far... -joe puglisi
