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 At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.”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