Andre 3000: not down on the "cloud"

Andre 3000 may be on the cutting edge when it comes to music. But he says he's kinda old school when it comes to how he goes about writing it. And, strange as it sounds, that's because of technology.

He isn't against using it - but does have fears about what others do. Andre says he writes music constantly - and used to compose stuff on his phone. But he says the way information is shared these days, he doesn't trust that his creative talents might fall into the wrong hands.

He notes the computer "cloud" can read every thought he has - and that's something he doesn't like. So he says he's back at using old-fashioned paper and pencil to jot down thoughts about new music.

Andre 3000 is playing rock guitar legend Jimi Hendrix in an upcoming movie.
