Quotable: Prince Declares The Internet “Completely Over”

“The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give away 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 At one time, MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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.”

—Prince — is he still going by that name? — explains why he has closed his official website and banned iTunes and MySpace from using his music, even as his new album 20TEN comes out [BuzzFeed]
