Prince: "The Internet's Completely Over"

Authored by Mark Hefflinger (http://www.dmwmedia.com/user/mark-hefflinger) on July 6, 2010 - 5:33am.
http://www.dmwmedia.com/sites/default/files/images/Prince_SelfTitled.jpg (http://www.dmwmedia.com/image/prince)London - Prince has told the U.K. newspaper The Mirror that "The Internet's completely over," and intends to forgo downloads entirely for his forthcoming record, instead distributing it in CD format in copies of the Mirror. "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," Prince told the Mirror.

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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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

The artist has been notoriously guarded with regard to his copyrights online, several years ago demanding that his own fan sites remove photos of him, and later threatening to sue sites including YouTube and eBay.

another bitter, bitter artist who can't come to grips with the digital age and also the fact our current music industry will remain chaotic for a few more years until solid-proven-distribution channels are in place.

Why would being "strange" determine a man's level of intellect?

You two might both share the 'twink' chromosome.

Don't fight it, embrace it.

Let's be honest here, Prince is a cunt.

He makes great music, but i never want to hear him speak, because he invariably says the inanest shit.

Agree with Prince...

Be real, most of the time you spend on the internet is a waste of time... A mere distraction...

Some of the most successful people in the world dont have computers and dont even have cell phones...

Honestly, I'm growing tired of "The Matrix" and I'm beginning to get away from it...

Also, I think it's cool dude is GIVING AWAY HIS ALBUM FOR FREE... Prince was is and will always be the Man...

That's extremely naive. You will NOT be able to escape when humans transcend biology in a few decades. (Unless you kill yourself first) It's going to require accelerated intelligence to keep up with where we are heading.

The Mirror will probably give him a nice amount of money and I bet it'll be for sale in stores in no time.

He did the same thing with his ''Planet Earth'' album.

you must rely on public opinion if you don't think "musicology" is a good album... or maybe you're just saying random shit coz you don't follow prince's career thoroughly. whatever... it's not the topic.

prince's comments might sound weird, but he actually foreseen the impact of the world wide web before any relevant artist in the industry, taking his contract back and selling his releases through the internet.

now, i say he got a shot at some new interesting ideas. can we blame him ? the music industry is doomed if no interestins idea rises.

about what prince said, anybody read this ?

Tommy Silverman is a whining douche bag who isn't handling a disruptive technology very well. Just like many more in the industry.

Also artists and labels have grown way too comfortable raking cash in during the last 60-70 years. Who is to say they are entitled to making quadruple of what an installation artist makes?

The high profit music industry that has existed for less than 100 years is a minor blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things. Nothing is set in stone. The human race and the "arts" are constantly evolving. Earning monetary compensation for your talents isn't necessarily part of our inalienable rights. These artists will get by, but might have to be more creative about generating revenue in the meantime.

Whatever you say FrenchShin and Dusk LOL. I know ya'll love Prince and i like his music too but most of his songs suck. I just haven't liked the music he did after Purple Rain. Last album of his i heard was Diamonds And Pearls and i didn't like it. Diamonds And Pearls and Get Off songs are the only ones i like on that album. Other albums of his i've heard are Prince, Controversy, Dirty Mind, Around The World In A Day, Parade and most of the songs on those albums suck. Isn't the name of his first album called For You? I remember the classic song Soft And Wet from his first album but i never heard his first album. Prince did a lot of jams in the 80's but after the 80's, he didn't do that many jams. It seems to me he did more love songs than jams after the 80's. If he had done more jams than love songs, i would've continued to listen to his albums because he's good at doing party jams. Remember his 80's jam Erotic City? Is that song on any of his greatest hits albums? I wanna have that song on cd because i loved it back in the day. My mom loves him and she has his Let's Go Crazy album single that has Erotic City as a b-side song.
