Prince a Jehovah’s Witness, claims internet is “over”

Prince uses his hair to disguise himself when he’s going door-to-door as a Jehovah’s Witness. The 52-year-old pop star converted in 2001 to the religion, which requires all followers to publicly preach the word of God once a week. Prince loves introducing his faith to strangers, and door-knocks as often as possible, albeit flanked by bodyguards, dressed in a a flamboyant suit and wearing stacked heels. “Sometimes people act surprised but mostly they’re really cool about it,” he told British newspaper The Daily Mirror. “Sometimes I go in disguise. My hair is capable of doing a lot of different things. I don’t always look like this.” Prince says his life has been filled with “peace” since he became a religious man. He also announced recently that the internet is a fad whose time is done. He told the paper: “The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else.”

    i dont believe the internet will be going anywhere, any time soon. also, i can understand being religious, but to disturb people at their homes? thats going a bit overboard. people know about god, some just choose not to be religious. we shouldnt have to be subjected to people showing up at our door to try to convert us. if we wanted saving we would probably go to a church. i disagree with this method of religion.

    The internet is over? Sorry buddy, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. It’s an amazing resource and I can’t imagine how we got anything done before. As for artists who don’t allow their songs on iTunes, it’s your loss. That’s the only place I get music from and yes, I usually pick song by song (unless it’s a movie soundtrack). I don’t want to pay for a whole album if I only want one or two songs.

    I went to get a song last week and found out the singer wasn’t there because he doesn’t want people downloading his songs but not his albums so he opted out. Instead, I downloaded someone else doing the same song. Sorry you guys who aren’t on iTunes, you’re not getting my money. I haven’t bought music (CDs) from a store in probably five years.

    This is in fact untrue, there are no such requirements, dictating how often one must go door to door.
    just FYI

    I find it ironic that I’m reading this considering the fact that the internet is “over”.

    I think it’s safe to say that Prince has always been and currently is… a Nut job.

    This guy is delusional

  11. Ally • July 7, 2010 @ 8:41 PM

    This guy is an idiot, without the internet people would go crazy. I think this guy lives some kind of an amish lifestyle. What a anorexic freak! I dont like him and never had, he needs to shut up because no one cares about what he has to say.

    Internet is over?? Very nice he was able to gain this great wisdom, with the help of his religion no doubt. My son came to visit from University and he was wearing a tee shirt that was quite insightful as well….

    Science flies you to the moon.

    Religion flies you into buildings.

  13. Knowledge • July 8, 2010 @ 6:45 AM

    Right or wrong,a personal observation can be formed without influence of ones religion.

    This t-shirt would be even more insightful:

    Science flies you to the moon or blows you up shortly after take off.

    Religion flies you into buildings, but at least gives you a peace of mind before you get blown up.
