Prince Claims The Internet Is Over


    Prince always followed his own drum beat, and now the man who scuffs at the record industry shuns both iTunes and the Internet. He cannot sell music on both anymore. He has taken down his site and refuses to sell to Apple. Any direction Prince goes controversy follows and he just keeps selling music. His new album goes against the grain, 20TEN, will be released as a CD to Mirror readers and various other print publications in Europe. The publishing industry is at an all time low and Prince embraces the media and turns his back on the Internet. Genius or folly? Is Prince just in the line of old people who are no longer relevant in the new age technology where gadget literacy is far too complicated for him. The eccentric musician always finds way to be a public darling with his thinking, but will dividends pay off this time?

    Prince: The internet is over“The Internet’s completely over,” he said. “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.”
