The official Twitter account for The Beatles icon John Lennon tweeted out the following quote. The quote is taken from an old interview in which Lennon is talking about all of The Beatles smoking marijuana. John Lennon’s widow was spotted with Ringo Starr. In addition, Lennon was also discussing memories of the 1965 movie Help! which starred each member of the band – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. John Lennon brutally called this surprising woman ‘fat’.
The soundtrack was released as an album, also called Help! Seven the soundtrack’s singles including the tracks “Help!” and “Ticket to Ride”, appeared in the film and took up the first side of the vinyl album. The second side contained seven other releases including the most-covered song ever written, “Yesterday”. It was released as a single in July 1965 and was number one for three weeks in the United States and the United Kingdom. You can view the tweet below. Freddie Mercury made this ‘closeted’ John Lennon remark.
‘We didn’t know what was happening. In fact, Dick Lester was a bit ahead of his time with the Batman thing, but we were on pot by then and all the best stuff is on the cutting-room floor, with us breaking up and falling about all over the place!’
