Wow, this is some crazy talk.  I just don’t think Prince even knows how the internet works.  So he won’t give his music to iTunes so that they can sell it, but you will give your album away for free in an English newspaper?  This is just the most backwards thought process.  As told to Peter Willis from The Daily Mirror in the UK.

  • “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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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.”

Be sure to check out the whole article here.  I didn’t know Prince has been a devout Jehovah’s Witness for 10 years?  No wonder he’s crazy.  The article goes over a bunch of his other peculiarities.

    Why shouldn't itunes have to pay him an advance? Do you really think that he isn't getting paid by the Mirror? Its your thought process that's backward. I'm feeling prince on this one. itunes is the biggest rip off ever. Ask mutherfuckers how much they get for their music, and how much itunes gives them towards marketing?

    So being a Jehovah's Witness is Crazy? No wonder this God less society is out of control!
