Three Reasons to Hate…Paul McCartney
Maxim, Jan 2002
1. He’s a pot-smokin’ hypocrite.
He called drug use by kids today “life-threatening,” yet described the assloads of drugs he and his contemporaries did in the ’60s as “innocent.” Gee, do you think all those spliffs addled his brain?
2. He’s an iron-fisted tyrant.
The outspoken vegetarian once forbade anyone working at his concert from eating meat. He even hired former intelligence agents to spy on people to make sure they didn’t have beefy contraband.
3. He let Linda sing.
No disrespect to the dead, Paul, but you couldn’t find a single four-inch strip of duct tape?

4. He’s a cheap bastard.
When McCartney—who is said to be worth more than $1 billion—threw a birthday party for his fiancée last year, the “richest man in pop music” made his guests pay for their drinks at a cash bar.
5. His band mates despised him.
The Beatles sang about love and understanding, yet even they hated Paul. That’s why George wrote the song “I Me Mine” and John penned “How Do You Sleep?” Ringo…well, he was just Ringo.
6. He’s a cold-hearted jerk. Asked what he thought about John Lennon’s tragic death in 1980, he said, “It’s a drag.” Allegations that he referred to Satan as “rather uncool” couldn’t be verified at press time.
