Prince is an idiot

Reading tweets today, I found a link to this article where Prince gives an interview about his new “20Ten” album about to be released, for FREE but only on CDs. He dosen’t want it on iTunes, nor YouTube since they can’t pay him up front.  Citing that “all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”  Yet he’s releasing his music on CD which are DIGITAL recordings encoded in these “numbers.”  … idiot!

It’s obvious that “The curmudgeon formerly known as Prince” dosen’t like change, nor technology he isn’t used too.  Or he’s a shill for recording industry (RIAA) and sold his soul to say ignorant and misinformed things like this.

But considering he thinks that video games like Guitar Hero aren’t good since he believe it’s better for kids learn how play a REAL guitar. I can understand that bit he miss the entire point of what a video game is meant for, to have fun!

The same can me held for what Computers and “digital gadgets” are meant for, to play music!

Honestly I think Prince is still stuck in the 80s, and hasn’t moved on for 30 years.  Sad.

    • your logic escapes me if his old way of thinking (or lack there of) is refreshing. Jumping into polar ice water is refreshing, but most people don’t do that.

      Considering the fact that he’s just flat out wrong with his reasoning. His foot is in his mouth when he believes digital gadgets are “bad” for you when all his music is released on CD! that’s Digital. DUH!
