Blondie's Debbie Harry: 'People will eventually lose interest in the Internet'

'Heart Of Glass' icon Debbie Harry has admitted that she expects people will eventually grow tired of the Internet and will stop using it altogether. 

During a new interview with the NME, the Blondie frontwoman explained that the intrusive nature of being online will probably become annoying years down the line and the public might start wanting to regain a sense of privacy:

"I'm really only concerned with letting people have a certain amount of me - not all of me. I've always fought very hard for a certain amount of anonymity and privacy. I don't participate as much as (bandmate) Chris (Stein) does - I'm very selective... I think that there will be some kind of Luddite backlash. People in general will just all of a sudden unhook themselves. It's such a waste of time."

Blondie, meanwhile, will be performing at this year's Glastonbury Festival. The event is set to take place across the weekend of June 25-29 at Worthy Farm. Dolly Parton has also been confirmed to play live. Blondie also received the coveted Godlike Genius prize at the 2014 NME Awards and writing on Twitter about the honour, Harry confessed that she was very excited:

"It’s great you know. It’s out of proportion, but it’s nice to be recognised. It’s outstanding, really... It’s an outstanding list. I also find it particularly interesting that there aren’t many Americans who’ve been given this award before, so that’s flattering."
