In today's edition of the "Award of the Day" – Prince – or the artist sometimes so named- has just taken a major step, according to CNN's John Berman. As of this week, Prince appears to be on Twitter.
He is tweeting under the handle @3rdeyegirl, which is the name of the band he is performing with. His first tweet just said:
His second tweet? "PRINCE'S 2ND TWEET."
He then tweeted some food, and a sort of selfie. So why is this a big deal? A lot of people are on Twitter after all.
Well, a couple of years ago, Prince said this in an interview:
"The internet is completely over... all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you."
The internet is over? Maybe not Prince. I think the world wide web might amount to something, says Berman, and now apparently you do too. Welcome to the 90's Prince. Tonight you are going to party likes it's 1999.
Therefore, Prince wins the "Party Like it's 1999 Award. He Finally made it.
