'The internet's completely over', declares petulant Prince

Star has a pop at iTunes, MTV and computers

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Purple rock geezer Prince has declared that the internetosphere has had its day, as he prepares to release his latest album exclusively on CD through UK newspaper the Daily Mirror.

In a punctuation-light interview ahead of the unleashing of 20TEN in physical form, the Jehovah's Witness declared: "The internets completely over. I dont see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They wont pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they cant get it."

He further popped: "The internets 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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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 cant be good for you."

Mercifully, Prince's new-found Luddite tendencies - which have led him to close his official website - don't extend to large mixing desks, electric guitars or CD players, because that would certainly put the kibosh on Saturday's Daily Mirror freebie.

If your nerves can stand it, there's more from the diminutive songsmith, including his opinion that young 'uns today "dont have enough God in their lives", right here. ®
