A source close to the situation explained:
Prince's music may have gotten great reception, but he himself doesn't get any reception! Cellular, that is!
The pop legend implied in a recent interview that he doesn't own a cell phone. When asked about if he owned an iPhone, he replied:
"Are you serious? Hell, no."
Judging by his retro look and afro he sported for the cover shoot of V Magazine (above), which makes him look like a member of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club, we wouldn't be surprised if he still used a rotary, the Pony Express, or a raven from Game of Thrones to communicate.
"It’s like a galaxy. The sun is in the center giving off energy, and everything revolves around it…The sun is information. Nobody really talks to me. Nobody talks to me a lot."
Who knew Prince was such a recluse? He may need to change his name to the Artist Formerly Known As Howard Hughes!
