Prince: Party like it's 1979 -- today's open thread

Prince: Party like it's 1979 -- today's open thread



There's nothing more depressing than realizing that your "Generation Jones"-mate Prince is now the Grumpy Old Man of rock 'n' roll:

Prince tells the Bristish tabs:

He went on to say: “The internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.

Prince also criticised the advent of gadgets and computers: “All these computers and digital gadgets are no good.

"They just fill your head with numbers and that cant be good for you.”

The sad thing is that I kind of agree with him. And ironically, the picture that ran with this article was obviously created on a computer, or else Prince's head is 5X larger than his body.
