Music legend Paul McCartney is being a little less Paul McCartney and a little more like his former bandmate John Lennon as of late. From his recent TMI revelation that he once masturbated alongside the "I am the Walrus" singer to his calling climate change deniers "stupid," McCartney is sailing close to "Imagine" territory.
According to People, in an interview with BBC News, McCartney commented on his newest album "Egypt Station" that features a few knocks at President Trump, which he claims were spurred by the stupidity of denying climate change. The song, "Despite Repeated Warnings," likens President Trump to a "mad captain" on a ship while blasting climate change deniers for talking a big game without any evidence. "Those who shout the loudest/May not always be the smartest," go the lyrics.
"People who deny climate change … I just think it’s the most stupid thing ever," McCartney told the BBC. "So, I just wanted to make a song that would talk about that and basically say, ‘Occasionally, we’ve got a mad captain sailing this boat we’re all on and he is just going to take us to the iceberg [despite] being warned it’s not a cool idea.'"
Just so people would not be mistaken as to who that "Mad Captain" might be, McCartney clarified that it is President Trump.
"Obviously it’s Trump," McCartney said before adding, "but there’s plenty of them about. He’s not the only one."
As stated above, McCartney did recently indulge in John Lennon's penchant for letting people in on private secrets nobody asked to hear about. He claims that they both once masturbated together while yelling the name of then-sex symbol Brigitte Bardot.
"What it was was over at John’s house, and it was just a group of us. And instead of just getting roaring drunk and partying — I don’t even know if we were staying over or anything — we were all just in these chairs, and the lights were out, and somebody started masturbating, so we all did," he told GQ magazine. "We were just, ‘Brigitte Bardot!’ ‘Whoo!’ And then everyone would thrash a bit more."
McCartney also claims to have seen God during a drug trip.
