The former mega-star, Prince, is officially over, according to the Internet. The singer-songwriter had previously declared, in an interview, that the Internet was over. The once great star said that ‘gizmos’ like iPods just fill your head with numbers. The Internet responded by saying ‘stars such as him just fill your head with question marks.’
The Internet breathed a collective sigh when Prince decided to give away his next CD in the very publication that was interviewing when he declared the Internet was over. The Internet’s take is that now they won’t even be tempted to search for his new music on iTunes or any other online service since it won’t be there. And how can you beat getting an entire CD for the price of a print paper? Oh, wait, CD? I forgot…the Internet killed those years ago. I wonder what Prince thinks people will do with those?
Prince, during his interview, says that “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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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.”
Well, I don’t remember the last time I listened to my Zune and got my head ‘filled with numbers.’ Clearly, the artist formerly relevant does not know much about the technology he appears to dislike. What’s even stranger? Those computers and gadgets are what he used to use to make his music. Back when, you know, he was still good.
The Internet just shook its collective head and has moved along. In other news, Lindsay Lohan is actually going to jail. For real. Maybe.
