Trendspotter Of The Day

Prince has spoken:

In an interview with London’s Daily Mirror, the notoriously provocative rock star, 52, dismissed using the Web to release his upcoming record, “20Ten.”

“The Internet’s completely over,” Prince told the Mirror. “[It’s] like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.”

The “Purple Rain” rocker is putting his money where his mouth is. Rather than use contemporary outlets like iTunes to release his new material, Prince is going an unconventional route: “20Ten” will be released abroad as a free giveaway in certain newspapers around Europe.

(…)

The singer has also blasted the intellectual value of the ‘Net.

“All these computers and digital gadgets are no good,” said the singer, who also shut down his official website. “They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”

That’s right, the internet is sooo 2009 – newspapers are the hip new hotness.  Also, all the ones and zeroes inside your iPod can leak into your brain and contaminate it with math (says the man who titled his latest album “20Ten”).

I know who I’m not going to be asking for stock tips…

Elle MacPherson Dooms Rhinos To Extinction

Elle MacPherson reveals that the secret to looking good is… preying on an endangered species:

Elle Macpherson, aka “The Body,” is being blasted by animal-rights advocates for a technique she uses to keep her body looking good.

The 47-year-old supermodel and host of “Britain’s Next Top Model” told the Times of London that she eats powdered rhinoceros horn as a beauty treatment.

“Put it this way, it works for me,” Macpherson tweeted to the Times Online.

(…)

The International Fund for Animal Welfare is so outraged by Macpherson’s confession that it has prepared an informational brochure to send to the superstar about the plight of the rhino and the use of alternative treatments.

“There is no excuse for using any endangered animal products,” spokeswoman Erica Martin told SkyNews.

“First and foremost, selling rhino products is illegal and in breach of CITES,” she said. “And secondly, four out of five species of rhino are literally on the brink of extinction. Elle has been a successful businesswoman with a high public profile for decades, and people do listen to what she says.”

That’s great, thanks a lot, Elle.  The rhino population will be lucky to last a week now.  Here’s the best part, though:

Macpherson’s admission comes just one year after the supermodel publicly boycotted a London restaurant for serving endangered bluefin tuna.

Oh yeah, she’s soooo concerned about the endangered species.  What a colossal narcissistic phony.
