Quoted: Prince is very protective of his words

(Afshin Shahidi)

“Some in the past have taken my voice and sold it. I can’t remember the incident that triggered it and it’s probably best that I don’t.”

Prince explaining to a writer from Billboard why, though she was interviewing him for a new cover story, he would not allow her to record his comments. Or even take notes, for that matter: “That would be just like texting.” Ohhhkayyy. The enigmatic singer-songwriter is preoccupied with media ownership and creative rights these days.
