Prince admits he doesn't own a cell phone



Prince graces the August cover of V Magazine, on newsstands July 18.


His Purple Highness tells the mag he doesn’t have an iPhone.

“Are you serious?” he asks. “Hell, no.” Mimicking a woman’s voice, Prince says, “Where is my phone? Can you call my phone? Oh, I can’t find it.”

He's doesn't have a cellphone or an iPhone?

As much as money as he has, he can pay someone to make calls for him. Awesome.

This finally answers the question "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore?"

I hope the teens/early-twentysomethings of the world take note and get rid of their cellphones as part of a new trend.

This isn't worth an internet debate but out of curiosity who do you listen to?

Well, obviously your stereo system doesn't have an ignore feature. Looks like it lets just any old thing through.

Don't have to lash out just because you feel substandard at not knowing who most of those bands are....
