I was just thinking about Heather Mills a few weeks ago. It occurred to me that we hadn’t really heard anything from her in a while. Granted, I try to avoid covering her and it’s not like I’m looking for news about her. But for a while there, she was a big disaster. That was immediately following her split with Paul McCartney, and their subsequent nasty divorce. It took two years to work out the financial and custodial settlement, and Heather ended up getting $48.6 million of Paul’s fortune (she originally wanted $250 million). That was 2008. Since then, it’s been said that Heather has blown through most, if not ALL of that money. And in the years since, Paul has remarried – he and Nancy Shevell married in 2011, and I think Paul pretty much considers New York his homebase now?
In any case, Heather decided she wanted some attention. She sat down for an interview with Ireland’s The Late Late Show. Even though she claims she was there to talk about how she “owns the biggest vegan company in the world” (????) she ended up taking several swipes at Paul. Because that’s who she is, people. Some assorted quotes:
Why she doesn’t want to talk about Paul: “That umbilical cord was broken. He’s married someone else and I agreed to come on the show so it wasn’t all about Paul. It’s so boring… If you want me to fall asleep…If you had a pan of soup, I’d put my head into it.”
The kids don’t know Paul McCartney: “If I go down the street, all I get is kids coming up to me. Half of them don’t even know who he is. That’s why he’s got to do songs with Rihanna and Kanye West, so people remember… When I go down the street, it’s ‘Oh my god, you’re a ski-racer’ or ‘You help the animals.’ You know, I own the biggest vegan company in the world…”
How she views her marriage to Paul: “This is just someone I fell in love with who to me was a normal guy that happened to write a few cool songs in the 60’s and a few in 70’s. Like everyone that’s a partner, you fall in love, you get married, you sometimes go ‘Oh my god, this is completely wrong’ and you wake up and move on. I once divorced somebody that I once loved and then I was abused for it.”
I’m including the video below, and you can see that the interviewer really doesn’t give a crap about what she has to say about anything else beyond Paul McCartney. And if you didn’t know by now: Heather Mills is a bitch. She always was, and she always will be. Paul is not just some “normal guy” who wrote “a few cool songs in the 60’s and a few in 70’s.” He’s one of the most iconic artists of all time, you know? And he had more than “a few” hits. As for her shade-throwing about why Paul collaborated with Kanye and Rihanna… I think Paul did it because he wanted to, because he likes working with younger people, not because he’s desperate for relevancy or whatever. He has more money than God and he already has all the accolades and respect he could ever want, so maybe he just still makes music because he wants to, because he enjoys it, right? What bothered me about Paul working with Kanye and Rihanna is that Kanye acted like “the kids” had no idea who Paul was or is. And I hope that’s false.

I really wish this witch would hop on her broom and fly away forever.
Maybe she can’t find a broom willing to carry her? Terrible woman.
And more relevant that Paul McCartney? Does she really believe the words coming out of her mouth? But of course she doesn’t want to talk about Paul. She’s so over him, right?
What a woman. Does she really think people know her better than Paul? And how she belittles his achievements with the Beatles (they made history!) and his solo career! Rude! And dumb!
She’s a bitter piece of work, that one.
What’s sadder is that he is the father of her little girl and she continues to belittle him this many years after the divorce!
I think the broom would turn around slap this witch and fly off on its own. Either that or fly right into a volcano
The Beatles had unprecedented levels of fame and success, well except maybe for Elvis. Yet unlike Elvis, and Michael Jackson and all the other sad screwed up overdose victims- not judging them, but it’s true- he seems to have stayed a sensible human being, living a sensible life. apart from marrying this woman of course. How can you be idiotic enough to go through nearly 50 million in a relatively short time? I admire him tremendously for it. A recent interview at his studio ended with macca giving the interviewer some sandwiches wrapped in tin foil, in case he needed to eat on the way home. Marvellous. I just wish he’d stop dyeing his hair.
I think dropping a house on her would be faster for us all.
A most excellent idea. This is a bitter, not very nice person, who does work for charity, but is still mean-spirited when she talks about Paul. No wonder his children with Linda wanted nothing to do with her. Heather! People are always going to like Paul better than you!
The amount of Paul’s money that she grifted from him for such a short marriage is pretty staggering. Instead of taking care of it and making it last, I have heard that she has spent/squandered most of it. Perhaps Paul will continue supporting her because they have their daughter, Beatrice.
I hope Beatrice gets to spend a lot of time with Paul, at least.
OMG! So she says she doesn’t want to talk about him bc it’s sooooo boring, but then goes on and on about how irrelevant Paul is and how she is so relevant. Give me a frickin’ break. Ask my 11 year old who Paul McCartney is and he knows he’s one of the Beatles dudes. Ask him who Heather Mills is and he wouldn’t have a clue.
For the record, Paul McCartney collaborated with Kanye and Rihanna for fun and to keep working. He will ALWAYS be relevant.
Heather had to marry a Beatle, bilk said Beatle out of millions in the public spotlight, and get fake tata’s to have even one iota of relevancy…which has long faded BTW.
I thought I noticed something different on her physically…and wondered if in the few instances I saw pics of her years ago…did she have ginormous mammary glands back then!! Thanks for clarifying that for me…NO…she bought herself a pair. Nice way to spend Paul’s money! What a freaking bitch she is!
Heather… please. You are a mean-spirited, delusional wench. Biggest mistake Paul ever made was marrying you.
What you do after a breakup speaks so much about the person you are. Passive Aggressive or Bitchy.. either way. She is still not over it all and is pissed.
The only thing I really remember about her is her dumping water on McCartney’s lawyer’s head. This showed her true self early on. Yes, some young people don’t know McCartney just as some boomers don’t know who the musicians were from the swing era, but most people, no matter what their ages know who this woman is. Some probably don’t even know she was married to Paul at all. They probably only think of Linda as his former wife and she just gets placed in the trash heap of “who is this again?” and why is she talking.
She fails to admit she is just known as his lapse in judgment that cost him dearly.
HAHAHA she thinks people don’t know who he is, but obviously recognise her for he ski-racing? WTactualF???
I know. Pure delusion.
lol – she’s such a famous “ski-racer” that she couldn’t make it past the early stages of the UK’s winter sports reality show “The jump” coming only 14th of the 16 celebrities
This trick is just as delusional as ever. Never change, Heather.
I actually laughed out loud when I read that. Then I felt kind of sorry for her because she’s such delusional.
THIS. If anything she’s known for being Paul McCartney’s ex-wife and that’s all.
Kids run up to her because of her vegan company! lmao
I remember her from “dancing with the stars” or was that a really weird dream?
Yes she was on DWTS and she was a bitch to her dance partner, Jonathan Roberts too.
LOL she was a ski racer? Ye, the delusion is high…
Do kids really run up to her on the street or run away from her? The bitchy vibe is too strong.
Vegans are the new rock stars, didntcha know? LMAO!
Gee, sour grapes much? I find it VERY difficult to believe (i.e, I don’t believe it) that people come up to her on the street and says “ohhh! you save animals!” yet have no idea whatsoever who Paul McCartney and The Beatles are. As to doing songs with Rihanna and Kanye – Paul McCartney doesn’t need to stay “relevant” any more than Tony Bennett does. They are legends. I am sure both Rihanna and Kanye (okay, maybe not Kanye) are honored to work with him.
She is such a hot mess.
I laughed at that. Oh, so you’re trying to tell me that you’re bigger and more famous and more adored than Sir Paul McCartney? OKAY.
Yeah sadly some kids don’t know who he is, it happens with time I suppose but I also don’t think he did it for relevance. He did it because he has the freedom to do so.
I will say I immediately change the station if either of the two songs come on though, they both kind of suck though that’s through no fault of Paul.
I agree that the kids DON’T know who Paul McCartney is. And the song sucks. I wish he’d chosen a better song.
My 14 year old son and 18 year old daughter absolutely know who Paul McCartney is. My son is all about the Beatles.
My kids (14 and 16) know who Paul McCartney is. That’s probably because my husband loves the Beatles.
Kids who study music or are into music or have parents/families who are into music absolutely know who Paul McCartney and the Beatles are.
I completely agree with that. Our son is only 17 months old but I can guarantee that he’ll know who The Beatles are (as well as all of their solo work). And you can add Bob Dylan to that too! My husband will make sure of that. 😉
Very true. When I was a kid I was into the Doors and the Rolling Stones because my dad was fans of them when he was a kid. And my piano teacher also made sure I knew who all her favourite rocks bands of the 60s and 70s were too lol.
Saw Paul McCartney is concert a couple of years ago (husband is a big BEatles fan), and I have to say that he can put on a damn good performance. So much energy and a genuine happiness to be out there performing for people. And the concert was over 2 and a half hours long!!! We really felt like we got out monies worth with his concert.
My kids couldn’t pick Paul McCartney out of the Beatles. They’d know a Beatles song on the radio but they’d have no idea who Paul or John or George or Ringo was. I’ve tried to explain it to them but they don’t care. I shake my head at that. Meanwhile they know all the groups on the radio today, and who they are dating. Go figure.
I just asked my 19 year old if he knew who Paul McCartney was and he said “Was he in the Backstreet Boys?” I got a good laugh from that.
Of COURSE most kids don’t know who he is…He was WAY before their time. That doesn’t make him any less an icon.
And NO ONE is checking for Heather friggin’ Mills. That b*tch crazy.
Totally agree, I remember seeing a tweet from some teenager saying that Paul had better thank Kanye and Rihanna for putting him on the map. I laughed so hard.
Paul has more talent in his litte pinkie than Kanye and Rihanna do in their whole bodies. Paul irrelevant–what a joke!!
Lol, yes I was thinking of those tweets. I know some teens know who he is but clearly a lot are clueless. It’s not a bad thing. There’s no real urgency for them to know about Paul or the Beatles so they don’t. Others will know because they have varied music tastes or families that inform them.
Ugh. She’s so ridiculous. Is being I known by kids the mark of success? Only if you’re trying to peddle something to kids, which Paul isn’t.
She’s delusional and narcissistic.
yeah some kids DON’T Know him or at best care about Paul, and That song sorry, I love Riri but IT SUCKS
and yeah in a way I agree with her that is a play a relevancy cause I’m sorry but he is just starting to be that segment of the Grammy or whatever popular music show that most viewers ________________: switch the tv, or go walk their pets or check on another show, or make jokes about how he was in the Men who look like old Lesbians site ( it’s a thing and yeah he does and was on the site!) … Hint i do all of those … his music appeals to his original audience that were with him in the 70s and 80s
Don’t forget the 60’s. So he has a much bigger original audience. Will Kanye be around making music 50 years from now???
right briar I think that what he has is an abundance of old core audience but new poeple aren’t flocking to his stuff at all
@QQ–Read farther along in these comments and you will find the story about the 11 year old who had just a couple years ago discovered the “The best new band ever!” Sounds like new people are enjoying his stuff. His music will be enjoyed by all ages–old and new listeners.
My parents listened to him and the beatles while growing up….I don’t believe he’s looking for legitimacy or relevancy; he’s just overexposed but I think it’s b/c he loves performing and gives his life meaning…it’s all he knows, really.
Also, he has more musical talent in his little finger than Rhianna. I believe he collaborated with her not for relevancy or b/c of desparation, but due to industry trends. ‘Collaborations’ are all the rage now-blame Carlos Santana lol He told his manager he wanted to be famous again and manager hooked him up with top artists of the day. Shaman, etc were great albums though…unfortunately that started this era of faux collaboration- now it’s mediocre efforts at best-artists recording in separate places and getting spliced together. Old school samples are always fun, but now it’s about getting as many recognized names from as many demographics [hence your comment about PM’s older fan base] and fan bases are possible. It’s all about the $$$ anymore in the music industry.
Oh God Irma Is Carlos Santana Who I need to Burn at the Stake for those godawful Grammy Collabs???
My kids are 20 and 17 and love the Beatles. My 17 y/o son really started enjoying them when Beatles Rock Band came out several years ago. Man we all played the heck out of that thing. He got a Beatles t-shirt for Christmas from his sister this year. His response..so cool.
She married him for his money, and then he realized what a nasty person she was and divorced her. Sounds like she’s as awful as ever.
Bitter. Bitter. Bitter.
She’s a Kate Gosselin–just a really abrasive, unlikable person.
That being said, I very much respect her animal rights work.
Also, I hate The Beetles.
*runs and hides*
@ kitten, glad I’m not the only Beatles non-fan! 😉
Agree, reluctantly, that anyone who loves animals must have a good spot somewhere.
I grew up with the Beatles and it was so exciting then to have this new music, even more so because it was sort of disapproved of or not understood by your parents, but I don’t think a lot of their music “held up.” I mean, I Wanna Hold Your Hand was brilliant when I was six, but even though I have fond memories, I can’t say I listen to it anymore.
Also not a fan. I like some songs, but are they on my regular playlists? No.
I did Love Across The Universe because I heard about the psychedelic experience with it like how you listen to Dark Side of the Moon while syncing up to Wizard of Oz.
She’s still only relevant because of that guy she use to be married to so she can sit down. Meanwhile Paul is happily married and loving his life right now. He always looks like he’s having the best time since his current wife and he tied the knot.
I hate them too. They’re just awful. But even I know who he is. He’s that guy with the awful dye job from the Beatles who married an awful harpy.
I’ve never been a Beetles fan either. I turn the dial when one of their songs comes on. I respect the The Beetles and their place in music history, but still not a fan.
It’s nice to see that I’m not alone. 😉
Not a fan, either, even though I appreciate band’s songwriting and importance in rock music.
Led Zeppelin 4 ever.
Oh Heather. Thanks for the laugh.
Every time she opens her mouth she keeps proving how right the McCartney kids were about her. But I guess a gold digger still feels compelled to keep digging, even if it’s just a PR grave, all in the name of #relevance.
And she has to talk about McCartney to be relevant.
Exactly. She is the definition of scorned.
My thoughts exactly. She’s horrible.
BOOM! That’s what I came to say. 🙂
Honey, please. Have a seat.
She’s pathalogical, it’s absolutely jaw dropping.
Do the “kids” know who McCartney is? Hopefully, or you’ve either got kids with zero interest in music or dumb kids. Whether you like the Beatles or not they’re an historical benchmark.
Oh and why is he working with Rhianna and Kayne? Simple. He’s doing exactly what I would be doing if I had co-written/spearheaded “Sergent Pepper” at 23 years old….whatever the hell I want!
My kid didn’t know who McCartney was and he loves music and is far from dumb. Please don’t make sweeping generalizations like that. It’s not hard to believe that people of one generation aren’t familiar with the music of the previous generation, or can’t relate to the music.
How does someone spend that much money so quickly?
It is something I will never understand
If I was given that amount, I would either donate or give away about 40 mill, and I would still have enough money left for 15 lifetimes. There are too many children who need to be fed, taught to read, given a chance at a childhood. I’d donate to humane societies, Dr. without Borders, Aids Foundation, WWF, Ducks Unlimited, and on and on. I could do so much with that amount of money. I wonder what Heather did with hers.
exactly, unless she was flushing it all down the toilet, that much money is enough to keep even someone with expensive tastes in gravy for YEARS.
If I did get 50 million dollars of my own, I freely admit I’d use as much of it as I could to setting up full scholarships at my alma mater and some other colleges I admire, for kids who would otherwise never be able to afford that education or even dream of aspiring to it.
Wouldn’t taxes take much of it?
are divorce settlements taxed? i don’t think it should since it’s not like income and, when, paul earned that money he was probably already taxed so it would amount to double taxation.
If I saw her on the street, I wouldn’t know who she was and I had no clue she was a ski-racer, nor do I see how that is relevant. While McCartney is my least favorite Beatle and I think he should stop live-performances (his voice has been shot for a long time), if he wants to continue recording and other artists want to work with him, more power to him.
Agreed. I’m not much of a Beatles fan at all, but they are iconic. I do admire this woman for her hardships and for her work with animals, but her attitude is ridiculous. Paul McCartney is the father of her child. Grow up!
All the Seats: Heather Mills has to name drop Paul McCartney to be relevant.
People come up to her on the street and recognize her? I heard something about Paul McCartney last week and thought about Heather Mills, “What WAS her name?”
What lovely and kind things to say about your child’s father on national television.
Thank you. I forgot they actually have a child together.
I hope the sarcasm came through – anything else about Ms. Mills aside, publicly trashing your ex in a setting where your kid can either hear it immediately or find it years down the road is (take your pick) disgusting/reprehensible/classless
Mmmmmhmmm. A man who has had an iconic career which has spanned five decades, who has written music that is legendary doesn’t need Kanye or Rihanna (apologies to Rihanna for having to mention her with that idiot). I think he’s done well enough for himself without Ms. Mills’ advice.
How did she spent 46.5 million oh I forgot she owns the biggest Vegan Company in the World! She is a vile woman.
Somehow I keep reading the ‘in the world’ part in the voice of a Dana Carvey SNL character’s voice. Very loud and dramatic.
Ya. Me too. Just did it now. Ha!
Petty is as petty does.
Since she likes to stew in her own bile imma call her Petty Crocker.
Kanye West, Pam Anderson & now Heather Mills all in one cray day..this is the winner gossip day!
Paul doesn’t need to do anything – he’s a legend. This witch, on the other hand, has to resort to throwing her long ago ex under the bus in order to get any media attention.
Heather Mills was and still is a grifter and a pathological liar. I’m sure she has a raging case of narcissistic personality disorder and will do and say anything to attract attention to herself. Her vegan company is not the largest in the world, it’s referred to as a “leading supplier of vegan foods” in the UK. She is ranked 28th in the world in paralympic slalom.
She doesn’t seem to realize that her questionable past still follows her. She’s been the mistress of several middle-eastern sleazeballs, she did pornographic photo shoots (I’ve seen them, they’re disgusting), she’s consistently targeted and used rich men to propel herself into the spotlight, fabricated most of her background and alienated many former friends and allies.
That she’s still taking cheap shots at Paul only shows what a vengeful harridan she really is.
She has done a great deal of charitable work, which deserves recognition, for land mine victims and organizing donations of prosthetic limbs through her foundation, but at the end of the day it’s putting lipstick on a pig.
ITA 1000% Heather Mills comes off as extremely unlikable. Whatever she thinks of Paul, she should learn to keep it to herself for the sake of their daughter Beatrice. I do think she’s so narcissistic that she actually believes what comes out of her mouth and she probably has a hard time comprehending how many people despise her.
However, she is not entirely wrong. Many Millenialls don’t know who Paul McCartney is. There were a flurry of comments from Kanye fans that Tweeted that “this Paul McCartney dude was so lucky and his career was going to get a big boost because Kayne gave him a break.”
McCartney is a musical icon and legend. Heather Mills is obviously very bitter. OTOH, I can’t totally despise someone who is an animal rights activist and who has genuinely done a lot to help amputees and get prosthetic limbs for landmine victims.
On a personal level, Paul McCartney is no saint. He’s very PR savvy and has decades of experience charming the public. But there is another side to him. He’s very dicatorial to his staff, road crews who work on his tours and even independent film crews who film his vidoes — demanding that they not eat meat or post on social media.
And McCartney has also been known to be arrogant with other musicians. During the last days of the Beatles he managed to alienate notably George Harrison and Ringo Starr by criticizing their musicianship. There’s a famous film clip during the making of Abbey Road where he criticizes George’s guitar playing and George snaps back at him. And he used to re-dub Ringo’s drum parts after he left the studio. Read any of the Beatles biographies or Paul bios and there’s a LOT of information on what a money grubber Paul was. For example, while the Beatles were together he went behind the backs of the other three and was secretly buying up more shares of their songwriting business Northern Songs Ltd. to get more control. John Lennon was furious and called him out on it. That was one of the factors (although certainly not the ONLY factor) that hastened the Beatles’ breakup.
There’s a very famous story of how the other three Beatles were so ticked off at Paul’s attempts to control the group circa 1969 that one night John, George and Ringo all got into John’s limo, drove over to Paul’s house in St. John’s Wood and John Lennon took a brick, scaled the fence wall and threw the brick through Paul’s window. Paul also wanted Linda Eastman’s father, the NYC entertainment attorney Lee Eastman to manage the Beatles affairs after the death of Brian Epstein. The other three rejected that notion and instead overruled Paul and went with Alan Klein — a choice that also proved disastrous in the end.
Yes, Heather Mills is very unlikeable and should learn to zip it. But Paul is not a candidate for sainthood, either.
Looking at the pics up there I’m not surprised she’s not a higher ranked skier, poor love’s centre of gravity must be way off these days.
Speaking of boring…zzzzzz. I nearly went to sleep listening to 15 seconds of that interview.
Is she wrong though? I mean older generations know who Paul is but I’m sure young people had no clue who he was and were like why are Kanye and Rihanna doing a song with a random old dude.
Here’s the thing. I hope kids today know the legends in their parents and grandparents generations, and beyond. We did growing up (even though we hated them then) and we are the richer for it.
LOL at hating parents music bluhare. I despise country music, but I know the words to every single Jonny Cash, Loretta Lyn, and Glen Campbell song.
I’m 21, and I grew up listening to the Beatles and some of Paul McCartney and wings. My parents were both teenagers/young adults in the late 60s/early 70s, and they instilled their love of the Beatles in me from an early age. Bluhare said it much better than I could– I’m all the richer because my parents shared the legends of their generation with me.
Here’s the thing. Younger generations don’t need to know who is it. Current popular music is standing on the shoulders of talents like Paul’s.
The influence of his music and several others of that time is so ubiquitous, it’s invisible. I think it’s impossible for people to imagine a time when no one had heard sounds and music and culture like the stuff that the Beatles were playing with.
My six-year-old son loves The Beatles and as soon as Macca schedules a show in Toronto we’re taking him. She’s got a lot of nerve saying he’s irrelevant.
Unpopular opinion here, but she’s right. To most kids today he IS irrelevant.
Though, to everyone on this side of the pond, she’s not even Z-list.
It’s goes both ways for us older folks. I don’t listen to and can’t stand most of the music today. Nicki Minaj, Iggy Izaliea, Justin Bieber, One Direction, Tyga — I only know about these acts because they’re spoken about on gossip blogs. I have no desire to listen to their songs. I like some Katy Perry songs and a few Lady Gaga, but that’s it. I don’t like Kanye’s new music nor any Taylor Swift’s super simple songs. So current music is irrelevant to ME.
I read this over the weekend and thought she sounded so sour and unhappy. SIR PAUL is still adored by millions and will be relevant until the day he dies. She’s just a miserable shrew.
Stupid question but: what part does Paul have in that song? Does he play guitar? Because I can’t pick out his voice. I’m wondering if the version they play on my radio doesn’t have Paul because I don’t hear him in it. To be fair, it’s not my favorite song so I don’t listen THAT closely….
I totally noticed this TOO! Sat through it on the Grammy’s only because I’m a huge fan of Rihanna’s guitarist who was on stage with them. I seriously thought that Paul’s mic was OFF! I was a bit embarrassed for him. Plus, the song is really lame, imho. But the kids like it, sooooo….
He wrote it. He’s the musician. It’s not unprecedented for him to do that and not be on vocals. He’s a songwriter through and through. Look Rhianna and Kanye are great entertainers I won’t deny that; but their musicianship? Nope.
Paul wrote it? Wow. I’m hoping he only did the music and not the lyrics. “I’m fourfive seconds from wildin'” and “Hold me back, I’m bout to spaz”? It’s another one of those songs where the tune is catchy but the words are stupid.
For a woman who only had to lose a leg and screw a famous man to become relevant and only remains relevant for those very things- neither of which took very much talent- she sure has a lot of opinions. I’m not even a Beatles fan but for god’s sake this is ridiculous.
I genuinely hope their daughter does not take after her mother, personality and character wise.
Man, he likes ’em homely.
What a bitter b*tch, that was some nasty shade and she’s full of it anyway, none of that is true and she knows it. Ugh, this just made my stomach turn with rage! I hope she has blown all of that money(that she didn’t do anything to deserve) and she ends up getting her as* handed to her one day. I’m sure Paul has his faults but I always felt like she completely fooled and manipulated him.
I saw Paul live at Bonnaroo a few years ago, when I was 19. A lot of the people in the crowd were younger as well. It was one of the most moving experiences of my life. Every person there was so stoked to see him, and all that energy was so powerful. Lots of crying happened (from me, at least) and he still puts on an amazing show. I grew up listening to Paul and the Beatles because my parents both loved him and them, and they passed that down to me. He’s an icon and a legend, and he was a part of something that produced music that every human being can indenitify with no matter how young or old they are. Hate to break it to you chickie, but Paul McCartney will still be relevant long after you and I are gone.
Paul Mc Cartney like Keith Richards or Mick Jagger is a living legend. Period.
Wow, she comes off even worse in interviews than Leann Rimes does, and that’s kind of hard.
Me Me Me Me Me.
Shading Paul McCartney? I don’t think so, lady.
He sounded like hell on the Grammys and STILL gets a complete pass because he is a BEATLE honey. Have a seat.
A few years ago, I was visiting with a friend when her eleven year-old daughter blew into the room, announcing she had just heard, “The best new band ever!” Knowing that I’m partial to the Blues (as in that’s almost all I listen to), she began to explain that even I would love this band’s energy. She’d been at her best friends house, and her best friend was very into boy bands, so I prepared myself for a polite response when she nearly shouted at us, “They’re called The Beatles!” Our jaws dropped. Needless to say, we were, and still are thrilled with her taste.
Love this story!! I still remember seeing them live on the Ed Sullivan TV show! It was amazing and so exciting! Just the anticipation of their appearance was so wild. I loved their early singing stage but kind of fell away from them when they got into the “druggy” stages. Still they were the most talented musicians and still are loved. Paul does not need anyone else to be relevant.
I saw them on Ed Sullivan too! I was really young, but I remember all the screaming when they came onstage.
The Beatles hits still hold up, even all these decades later and Paul doesn’t have to do anything else to stay relevant. He’s doing these things because he clearly loves music and is always interested in trying new things. That was true when the Beatles were together (always trying new instruments and working with different musicians).
She is such a horrible person. I feel sorry for their daughter.
Yes, yes and yes! Poor Beatrice for sure.
I think she bought the PR during the marriage that she was a person of importance, not realising that anyone married to Paul would be accorded the same elevation. She’s now very bitter that it’s not true, and she takes every opportunity to make a swipe at Paul in a bid to regain her previous elevation.
lol Paul has always loved collabs with other musicians, he’s done a ton of them since the 70s I think? I don’t like this one but it’s nothing new for him.
And lmao if this piece of work thinks no one knows who he is, does she not realise the majority of Beatles fans today are people who weren’t even alive when the band split? 60s music is popular even now, not everyone has to be One Direction to be relevant.
I feel bad for that child she’s raising, though. To contrast the upbringing of Stella, James & Co. to this woman who thinks slagging off your child’s father on television is a good thing to do……
And she has to talk about Paul to be relevant! What a hypocrite loser! I hate that they even gave her an opportunity to speak.
When I go down the street, it’s ‘Oh my god, you’re a ski-racer’ or ‘You help the animals.’ You know, I own the biggest vegan company in the world…”
By that remark alone, she’s screaming “Look at me! “Her description of one of the most iconic figures on the planet shows her delusions. Pfffft,
What’s funny it’s at the end of the post, in the featured links section, you have ” Exes Lenny Kravitz & Lisa Bonet hang out”. I actually clinked on that one and saw too friendly exes exit a restaurant.
Needless (and sadly) to say that the Mills/Mc Cartney child won’t probably enjoy the same pic of her parents in a near future…
Well, if Paul McCartney is irrelevant- then what does that make the gold-digging bitch that married him?
And I’ve never had one second of sympathy for Paul. There wasn’t a person in the WORLD that didn’t know what kind of person she was when he started with her and how it was all going to end up.
True that, she wasn’t hard to figure out. His current wife seems nice though.
That song was pretty crappy.
And she needs to say stuff like this to stay relevant. Team Paul!
Heather who. . . . . . . . . . .?
The depth of this woman’s bitterness knows no bounds~Gurl BYE.
It’s funny that she is calling him irrelevant, when the ONLY reason anyone would bother to talk to her or speak of her is because of him!! Go away already!!
I think Paul was just lost after Linda died. Paul always has a woman in his life; He has said he doesn’t do that well on his own. No criticism for that; as it seems Linda was everything to him.
Heather was a temporary patch over his broken heart, and she was paid handsomely for it. She should have held onto those millions!
FIrst of all, I’m no kid, I am 56. It is incomprehensible to be that someone doesn’t know who Paul McCartney is. That would kind of like be “who is ELvis again?”
DO the kids of today know who he is? They likely recognize the name …. but that may be about it. Think about it: Those of us born in the late 50s and 60s: How many of us know that much about the music from the 40s? Oh we may recognize some of the names–or maybe not. But do we really know 40s music? I dang sure don’t. So it’s a fair analogy.
But they know she was a skier? OH PLEASE B*tch. Go sit down.
A few cool songs. Bitter woman.
I guess she forgot that Paul has been touring the world for the last few years playing to stadiums and doing 3-hour shows (unbelievable at his age) and people of all ages flock to it. The reviews of his tour are always great. Generations of families attending together. Younger acts only do two-hour or 90-minute shows. Sure, Paul is really irrelevant. His last album got great reviews.
The Beatles are iconic and their music to this day is still selling, and their musical influence is far-reaching. My brother-in-law’s kids are being raised on the Beatles.
I’m a fan of their later work, not their earlier work , except songs I pick out. But their later work I love.. Lennon/McCartney are legendary as songwriters. Then add George, who wrote two of the best songs on Abbey Road..
The stories of the Beatles studio sessions for albums I have been delving into and reading and it’s addictive. Making Abbey Road I read everything about them making that, the mess of the band, Yoko. It is like a musical soap opera that is so addictive. The debate between Leno and Paul fans as to who was the most talented, , who broke up the band is still raging all over the internet.
I just played Magical Mystery Tour a few weeks ago. Stawberry Fields Forever, Fool on the Hill are magical. I love their psychedelia period.
Music fans to this day are still obsessed with the Beatles, the inner-workings of the band, the music, the solo period after a breakup with Paul, John and George discussing their post Beatles period..
First, she’s so heinous that I think less of Paul for marrying her.
Second, I don’t think being an animal lover is diagnostic regarding a person’s innate goodness. Didn’t Hitler love his dogs? I have an incredible affinity for animals but some of the worst human beings I’ve met have as well. The awful animal lovers I know focus their empathy on animals IN LIEU of human beings. I wonder if she’s that type of person.
Anyway she’s a joke,
That’s a really good point. I too have know some horrible people that were huge animal lovers. I never understood how the animals could love THEM. Yeesh.
She has the meanest eyes I have ever seen !
She will vanish from history, but Paul McCartney will remain part of it forever.
Says the woman that had to name check McCartney to stay relevant.
I watched to see how she said what she did- and I really think this twit believes her own garbage. Thats even more laughable than the actual trash she spewed.
she shouldn’t talk about her child’s father like that, HE is the one providing after all. Also, I’m vegan, in the UK and never heard of her company.
So no, I wouldn’t run to her in the street.
Well, everyone becomes irrelevant to the mass audience eventually. There really is no stopping that. I didn’t really experience much of the Beatles until high school/college because the classic music that I would listen while growing up was Aretha, Dianna Ross, or Otis Redding. I can probably name about 3 Beatles songs if I heard them, but I can pick up on an obscure Motown artist or a 90s R&B one hit wonder in a heartbeat. Mills is a bit delusional though, McCartney won’t hit mass irrelevancy until 100 years or so.
Giving yourself 1,000 a week, you could live 16 years on one million dollars. I know I’m just an average person, no where near that kind of money, but it just floors me how that much can be almost gone. Despite what means you are use to living by, we make our money work for us and grow it. I just can’t comprehend how she’s almost out of that much money. I would have had it working and growing.
What a moron! The man has only to show his face to be relevant. He is an icon and will be FOREVER until the end of time. Haily, or Henrietta, or Heather, or whatever her name is, is the one drowing in her irrelevancy. She has to talk crap about him for anyone to give a $hit about what is coming out of her mouth at all.
What a pompous, pathological bitch she is.
Something tells me this b**** has the same school of thought as Kanye- delusional and can’t string any logical sentences together if her life depended on it.
Horrifying woman is horrifying. Cripes what a bung.
And this woman is someone’s mother ? Poor child.
” When I go down the street, it’s ‘Oh my god, you’re a ski-racer’ or ‘You help the animals.’ You know, I own the biggest vegan company in the world…”
Did I just roll my eyes out loud?
What a horrible, bitter woman. The only reason she got any substantial amount of money from the divorce was because she and Paul McCartney had a child together and the judge wanted the child to have a certain lifestyle at both parents’ homes. Here is the judgment, in case anyone would like to read it (it’s long but makes for fascinating reading):
In typically understated, reserved, British style, the judge makes it clear she’s a lying, manipulative, deceitful and conniving b*tch.
Why should anyone quote this non-relevant human?
I just had to echo what others have already said: how, how, HOW is it possible for someone to spend nearly $50 million in seven years??? I am utterly overwhelmed by that fact.
