Prince Does Not Own A Cell Phone! Beep Beep, What!?

Filed under: Music MinutePrincePhotos!

prince vPrince'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.

Prince went on to mention that he mostly talks to his assistant, and that he rarely is in contact with the outside world. He went on to say:

ABBA's Agnetha Fältskog Talks Fears And How She Became A Recluse!

Legendary band ABBA's Agnetha Fältskog is afraid of things, which is normal. Unfortunately, some of those fears became phobias — like the fear of flying, and stage fright. Those fears eventually brought her to a life of semi-reclusion!

Apparently it was in 1979, while the group toured the United States, that the private jet they took from New York to Boston encountered a tornado and had to make an emergency landing. It was this that gave birth to the fear of flying! Here's what she said:

Torpedoes of whipped-cream excitement are shooting everywhere!!

Katy Perry has already cemented her place in the history of pop music. But knowing she plans on finding inspiration from Madonna means extra gold lollipops (and lace, and handcuffs)!

If you've been keeping up, then you know we recently gabbed about her fierce L'Uomo Vogue cover, but now we're gonna have a lil' kiki about the inside beauty.

As she's said before, her next album is gonna be dark! She basically wants to

Man Refuses Prize After Solving World's Most Complicated Math Problem

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

ap07123109646jb.jpg

This guy is so AWESOMELY insane!!

We LOVE it!!

A reclusive genius, Dr. Grigori Perelman, famously solved one of the world's most complicated math problems, the one-hundred-year-old Poincaré conjecture, and is now refusing to accept a $1 million prize from the Clay Mathematics Institute for doing so!

The 44 year old man apparently prefers to live in St. Petersburg, Russia with his mom and sister, and has been given the nickname Mathsputin.

HA!

According to neighbors:

"He always wears the same tatty coat and trousers. He never cuts his nails or beard. When he walks he simply stares at the ground, rather than looking from side to side."

"I was once in his flat and I was astounded. He only has a table, a stool and a bed with a dirty mattress which was left by previous owners — alcoholics who sold the flat to him."

However, there's no denying this man is an effing genius! Perelman solved the Poincaré conjecture in 2002, and it took YEARS for experts to confirm he was correct!!

When reporters attempted to contact him, he responded, "You are disturbing me. I am picking mushrooms."

We are officially in love with this guy.

Damn the man, you do what you want, Grigori!!
