Prince, the purple clad soul sensation of the 1980’s, has declared the death of the internet.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, the pint-sized singer stated: “The internet's completely over. I don't see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won't pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can't get it.”

The singer has instead opted to give his album away free with a UK national newspaper.

“The internet's like MTV,” continued Prince. “At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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."

However, his comments have faced opposition in the unlikely form of light jazz saxophonist, Kenny G, who holds the Guiness World Record for holding a single saxophone note for 45 minutes. In an interview, Mr G stated that if the internet was dead “then I must be dead, too, 'cause I use it all the time.”
