Das Internet ist over, laut Prince

Prince hat genug von Filesharern und iTunes, weswegen er sein neues Album als Beilage zu dem britischen Schundblatt Daily Mirror unter die Leute bringt:

„You must come and listen to the album,“ he says. „I hope you like it. It’s great that it will be free to readers of your newspaper. I really believe in finding new ways to distribute my music.“
He explains that he decided the album will be released in CD format only in the Mirror. There‘ll be no downloads anywhere in the world because of his ongoing battles against internet abuses.
Unlike most other rock stars, he has banned YouTube and iTunes from using any of his music and has even closed down his own official website.
He says: „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.
„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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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.“
