The legendary bassist of the Beatles, Paul McCartney was recently spotted enjoying a quick cigarette break as he continued to soak up the sun during his break in St Barts. He had previously revealed that he had given up the habit. However, it doesn’t seem like.
Paul McCartney was spotted smoking
The music legend was spotted smoking as he relaxed in the sunshine while taking in the scenic sights. The 79-year-old star had donned a blue linen shirt and joggers as he walked along by the beach during his break, Sir Paul is reported to have first quit smoking cigarettes back in the early 1980s.
Back in 2015 the star also revealed he had given up smoking marijuana after using the drug on and off for around four decades. He had stated that he made the decision because he didn’t want to set a bad example to his five children and eight grandchildren.
It has been recently noted that The Beatles legend could be bestowed with ‘Lord’ in recognition of his lifetime of musical achievements and service to British culture. The Sun reported that sources claimed the prestigious honor is in the development, 25 years after he was first knighted by The Queen.
If he is awarded with the title, he will join a very select group of musicians, including theatre mogul Andrew Lloyd Webber, 73, composer the late Benjamin Britten and late violin virtuoso Yehudi Menuhin. A source told the publication: “Paul is already in an extraordinarily exclusive set of people at the very top of the honours system. There is now quiet talk among officials about how to mark his 80th with something truly special. The idea of offering him the chance to sit as a cross-bencher in the Lords has been mooted. He has given incredible service to British culture, so it could be a very fitting tribute and mark of all that he has done for his country.”
