Paul McCartney Reacts To Bad ‘Abuse’ Accusation


The Beatles icon Paul McCartney was accused of having an ‘abusive’ collaboration with Kanye West by Damon Albarn from Blur and Gorillaz in a GQ article.

Albarn said that when he’d got wind of it at the time, he had sent McCartney a text saying: “beware.”

“I love the respect someone like Damon is attributing to me, but I’m not that fussed,” McCartney responds. “If I want to go somewhere else from where I normally go or where I’m expected to go, I’ll go. And if I enjoy it, that’s enough for me. The great thing is, all sorts of hysterical things come out of it. I mean, there’s a lot of people think Kanye discovered me. And that’s not a joke.”

Though McCartney’s assertion may sound like a humblebrag, this may really be so, as in the modern world some of these songs have a far greater reach than anything else involving McCartney. For instance, “FourFiveSeconds” has ten times the Spotify plays of any other McCartney track and more than twice the plays of any Beatles song.

Paul McCartney posted on his official website a couple of months ago:

How do we top of January? Well, for the month that celebrates all things ‘love’ we invited fans to send Paul’s song ‘My Love’ to their Valentine. We also set the loving ambience asking about your favourite “Silly Love Songs” and Paul got in touch to post a message for George Harrison’s birthday. What’s not to love?

However, February isn’t just a month to get romantic, it’s also the time of year we binge watch our favourite new blockbusters as award season begins. On the subject of awards, we celebrated Paul receiving the highest of British kid’s TV honours – a Gold ‘Blue Peter’ Badge! Speaking of which, Paul celebrated Rami Malek’s success on Twitter after the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ actor shared a photo of the two meeting backstage on the #FreshenUpTour last December!
