According to Prince...
The internet is completely over... All these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you.

Yes the internet is evil, evil i tell you.

You can lead a much more productive life listening to music from Prince, or someone whose name was Prince, or Prince.

But the bottom line - please by my albums. I need to buy a new little red corvette.

If he's so numbers-averse, I'll relieve him of those yucky numbers in his bank account.

Maybe he should get rid of all those digital gadgets he uses in his recording studio. Maybe he'd start making good music.

I find your Clash era Joe Strummer quote more interesting than the quote from the guy who apparetly doesn't mind being known as Prince again. PL

Prince? Again? Didn't he have that sign thing as a name once?

At 52, he might think he's not the love symbol he used to be. Mmmmm, not possible.

Yes, I heard a rumour that it was going to be added as a new code-point to Unicode 6.0 along with the Japanese emoji characters but I don't know if that happened or not.

If filling your head with numbers can't be good, his song titles require a bit of explanation.

Methinks Prince may have partied a tad too hard in 1999.

Even funnier... his new album is going to be called 20TEN... looks like his own head is still filled with numbers.

Internet over, outta time: Prince releases tunes like it's 1999
