Popstar Prince rejects the internet (like it's 1999)

Eccentric popstar Prince has announced that he no longer supports digital sales of his albums, or the internet in general.

In an interview with UK's Daily Mirror the reclusive star says that "[t]he Internet is completely over" and he won't be releasing his new album, "20Ten" as a digital download.

"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's distain for web commerce will see him repeat plan he has executed in the past – giving the album away free with a newspaper.

"The Internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated".

"All these computers and digital gadgets are no good," he said. "They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you."
