Prince has revealed he thinks the era of the internet is over.

Speaking with The Daily Mirror – who along with Daily Record are releasing his new album ’20Ten’ – the singer said why his new music won’t be available for download online.

“The internet’s completely over,” he explained. “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.

He added: “The internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.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.”
