Prince can give his records away for free, but ain’t nobody else gonna do it

Posted September 14th, 2007 by eric

Prince plans to sue YouTube for its lackluster filtering practices in an effort to “reclaim his art.” And while he’s at it, eBay and The Pirate Bay are on his list, too. If he’s on a quest to become the new Metallica, then this might be a good idea. But Metallica’s notorious bitching and complaining about piracy has only made them look like spoiled pansies over the years. And spoiled pansies do not make good records. What up, St. Anger? Granted, Prince isn’t one to give much of an ass about his public perception, especially when it comes to money. But his ‘n’ hers sets of gold-flecked purple underwear are not cheap.
