When funk-pop singer Prince declared the Internet "completely over," he awakened smooth jazz saxophonist Kenny G. The virtuoso of elevator music gave a jocular interview with the Associated Press, saying that if the Internet is dead "then I must be dead, too, 'cause I use it all the time." With a laugh, he added "Maybe I've got a sixth sense, and I only see dead people. I don't know."

Your move, Prince.
