->'''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 '[Music/RubberSoul 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 criticism of the music that is being written today.

* HeAlsoDid: Had a periodic songwriting partnership with Creator/ElvisCostello in the late '80s and early '90s, with songs appearing on both men's albums. The Costello-[=McCartney=] song "Veronica", which also features Paul on bass, became one of the biggest hits of Elvis Costello's career.

* 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=].
