"Prince, the 52-year-old music icon has pronounced the internet dead, refusing to use any digital platforms to distribute his music."
This is the headline on a UK online newspaper today. Prince has declared the internet useless and can't understand why millions of people around the world bother with it.
This is obviously a case of sour grapes because techo-minded people have made it possible for tunes to be downloaded and Prince is fuming because he's not reaping the benefits financially. It could also be because he doesn't own a computer so really doesn't know what the hell he is talking about.
He is also concerned that many people in the world are developing earaches. Prince said he has witnessed many, many people walking around holding their ears and says this cannot be good. Some people are even talking to themselves as they walk down the street. Someone should put his mind at rest and tell him about cell phones.
Prince ran to the nearest phone box to phone police when one of these 'nutters' started following him.
Police arrived and arrested Prince for wasting police-time. Prince said, 'Even they were talking into their shoulders'
His agent bailed him out.
More on Prince as we get it.
