* DivorceAssetsConflict: Part of the extremely ugly end to his second marriage, with model Heather Mills. Mills got a large sum that was still less than a fifth of what she wanted, along with the judge's assessment that she was [[http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20186762,00.html "less than candid".]]
* EmbarrassingFirstName: His full name was James P. [=McCartney=]. You wouldn't think James was all that embarrassing, but no fewer than three post-UsefulNotes/WorldWarI British prime ministers have had the same aversion: James UsefulNotes/RamsayMacDonald, James UsefulNotes/HaroldWilson and James UsefulNotes/GordonBrown. Another was more enthusiastic, or maybe saw it as the lesser of two evils: Leonard UsefulNotes/JamesCallaghan. Word of Biographer has it that everyone called him Paul to avoid confusion with his father, James 'Jim' [=McCartney=].

* Creator/{{Hipgnosis}}: Designed the cover of ''Thrillington'' and worked on the cover of ''Tug of War''.



* TakeThat: "Too Many People" off of ''Music/{{Ram}}'' is a rather veiled Take That towards Music/JohnLennon. The photo on the inside sleeve of ''Ram''--a beetle...er, ''screwing'' another beetle--is less veiled, though Paul intended it as a reference to the acrimonious collapse of the Beatles instead of specifically insulting John. Lennon, always more willing to get nasty than [=McCartney=], took his revenge with "How Do You Sleep?" on ''Music/{{Imagine}}''.

* {{Veganopia}}: One of the most famous vegetarians in showbusiness...
* VocalEvolution: Paul's singing voice has gotten raspier, lower and deeper over the years, particularly after the mid-[[TheEighties 1980s]].

->'''Reporter''': I'd like to direct this question to messrs. [[Music/JohnLennon Lennon]] and [=McCartney=]. In a recent article, 'Time' magazine put down Pop music. And they referred to 'Day Tripper' as being about a prostitute, and 'Norwegian Wood' as being about a lesbian. I just wanted to know what your intent was when you wrote it, and what your feeling is about the 'Time' magazine criticizm of the music that is being written today.
