Haven't heard? Ok, some more quotes:
"The Internet is like MTV. Once it was hip and then suddenly it was outdated."
“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.”
"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."
Prince has shut down his official website, and he's never been on any social network, so it appears his online presence is nil. But are we being manipulated here?
Could it be that he knows very well what he's saying, and just saying it to get the maximum exposure for his new album, 20TEN? If so, wouldn't it be better that we were discussing how great his music is rather than a controversy?
Prince's new album will again be distributed as a CD inside the Daily Mirror, and he may even have a distribution deal Warner Brothers again, despite the major falling out they had some years ago. When the album comes out, let's see what the comments are then.
