    "The Internet's like MTV," the 52-year-old legend told the UK's Daily Mirror. "At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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."

    As much of a legend as Prince is, he's made himself look like such a tool. Guess it's lots of free publicity though, which is probably what he wanted all along, sensationalist headlines are the best headlines.

    That quote in the OP is so ironic because his new album's name? 20Ten.

    Numbers, indeed...

    No way, wait, seriously, you've got to be kidding me... Prince is doing and saying something that doesn't make sense. Who'd a thunk it?!? :D

    And here's a little tidbit for you Mr. Prince sir, your album will be all over the internet whether you want it to be or not, because the net isn't going anywhere.

    I still love his music though. :)

    Well he said the Internet was dead so he won't mind all his music on something that's dead.
