Paul McCartney is one of the most legendary musicians of all time. Over 50 years after his band The Beatles took over the world, McCartney is still making music. Unfortunately, he is forced to work with arrogant young artists like Kanye West, who recently infamously asked the icon “what was p*ssy like in the 60s?”
McCartney, however, doesn’t seem to mind West. In a recent interview, he embraced the race-baiter by comparing him to the legendary John Lennon himself.
“When I wrote with John, he would sit down with a guitar,” McCartney said. “I would sit down. We’d ping-pong till we had a song. It was like that.”
McCartney went on to explain that he and West bonded about writing songs for their respective mothers, who each died early in their careers.
“We sat around and talked an awful lot just to break the ice. One of the stories I told him was about how I happened to have written ‘Let It Be.’ My mum came to me in a dream when she’d died years previously. I was in a bit of a state — it was the Sixties and I was overdoing it. In the dream she said, ‘Don’t worry it’s all going to be fine, just let it be.’ And I woke up and thought, ‘Woah’ and wrote the song. I told Kanye this and he said, ‘I’m going to write a song with my mum.’ So then I sat down at the piano.”
We find it sickening that McCartney is disrespecting the memory of John Lennon by comparing him to an arrogant race-baiter like Kanye West. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments section.
