Sir Paul McCartney has reportedly written a song about Donald Trump, just one month after slating the US President for showing the “ugly side of America.”

According to The Liverpool Echo, the 75-year-old former Beatle was making his annual appearance at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, when he confirmed the new track.

Reports suggest that the song, yet to be named, will feature on Paul's upcoming album, due for release later this year.

"Sometimes the situation in the world is so crazy that you’ve got to address it," the music icon told students who gathered to hear him speak.

Earlier this month, the musician vocalised his criticism of Trump during an interview with The Daily Telegraph:

"He’s unleashed the ugly side of America. People feel like they have got a free pass to be, if not violent, at least antagonistic towards people of a different colour or a different race.”

"I think we all thought we’d got past that a long time ago."

Details regarding Paul McCartney's upcoming album remain unclear, however it is known that the rock n' roll icon has been working with producer, Greg Kurstin, who in the past has worked with the likes of Adele, Lily Allen and Sia. 



Ed Sheeran has reportedly been cut from the upcoming Ron Howard Beatles flick The Beatles: Eight Days A Week.

Despite having successfully appeared in a number of small screen productions, The Mirror has reported that the singer has been left disappointed as his scenes in the movie have been edited out in a bid to make room for more Beatles-focused moments.

A source told The Sun: “Ed had recorded a segment for the film, but it failed to make the final cut along with a load of other talking heads by Ron who wanted to make more time for The Beatles themselves.”

According to the source, the Thinking Out Loud singer “will be gutted” by the decision as he has huge time for The Beatles, particularly Sir Paul McCartney from whom he has a signed guitar.

They said: “Ron had to be ruthless, but Ed will be gutted.  He’s crazy about The Beatles and has grown really close to Paul over the past couple of years, even introducing him to his dad.”

If the word 'genius' was removed from Kanye West's vocabulary, he'd have a pretty hard time describing himself.

Convinced he's brought more creativity to the music industry than other artist, the Life of Pablo singer has never been shy about saying as much.

"For me, you know, I’m a creative genius," he once told Jimmy Kimmel. "And there’s no other way to word it."

Well, as far as Paul McCartney is concerned, there are a few ways to word Kanye's contribution to the world of music, but 'genius' isn't one of them.

When asked by Rolling Stone if he agreed with Kanye's description of himself, the Beatle said: "I don't throw that word around. I think he's a great artist."

Softening the blow for poor ol' Yeezy, Paul continued: "Take My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I played it when I was cooking, and it was like, ‘This is good. There's some really innovative stuff."

And while he may not consider Kanye a genius, Paul was obviously more than willing to work with the star.

Recalling his decision to collaborate with Kanye and Rihanna, Paul told he publication: "When the word came from his people, through my people, I thought, ‘Let's give it a go.'"

Kanye, that's all you can ask of a Beatle, OK?



Normally when we call someone a monster, we generally mean it as an insult, but, as a Beatle, Paul McCartney has the right to use it any which way he bloody likes.

So when he recently dubbed Kanye West 'a monster' it seems the music icon, unlike Kanye's former bodyguard, meant it as a compliment. (We know, what gives?!)

Speaking during the BBC Radio 4 Mastertapes series, the 73-year-old legend said: "I love Kanye. People say he’s eccentric, which you’d have to agree with."

Paul, who collaborated with Rihanna and Kanye for Four Five Seconds, continued: "He’s a monster, yeah. He’s a crazy guy that comes up with great stuff. He inspires me."

We can't imagine that someone who was in one of the biggest bands in the world would ever hang around waiting for Kanye to get back to them, but Sir Paul insisted that that was the case.

"You just work with him and you leave him for a little while and let it marinate and hope he gets back to you," he admitted.

Talk about adding to that ego.



We all know who Tyga is now. But, let's be honest, he really rose to fame when he started dating Kylie Jenner, the youngest daughter of possibly the most famous family in Hollywood.

But we didn't know that means he now comes above Paul McCartney, one of the most successful musicians and performers in the world.

TMZ has reported that poor Paul was turned away from Tyga's Grammy after-party – TWICE.

The 73-year-old tried to get passed the bouncers but his name wasn't on the list, so he gave up and went to another after-party on the other side of Hollywood.

It was all in good spirits though as he was heard laughing and joking with Beck and the Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.

"How VIP do we gotta get? We need another hit, guys. We need another hit," he was heard saying before he moved on to join Woody Harrelson at Hyde.

Maybe next time, Paul.
