Heather Mills has slammed her ex-husband Sir Paul McCartney in a new interview, claiming that he has to do songs with younger people so that people remember him.
Erm, considering he was part of the biggest band in the world (The Beatles anyone?) AND has become just a little successful in his own, solo right (understatement of the year), we *think* he’s doing just fine, actually.
Alright, so some people may not know all about the Beatles’ legend (let’s take a moment to remember THAT moment Kanye West fans thought Paul was a ‘newcomer’) , and we can definitely get how irritating it must be to continually be asked about an ex.
Appearing on The Late Late Show in Ireland, the 47-year-old who recently competed on The Jump blasted Sir Paul as ‘irrevelant’, adding that kids on the street recognise her more than they do him.
From the first Paul-related question, Heather insisted that she didn’t “really want this interview” to be all about her former husband, adding that the “umbilical cold” between the two of them had long been broken.
Host Ryan Tubridy continued to press her on the topic she considered “boring,” saying: “I think people are more interested than you allow for.”
However, Heather responded with some serious shade-throwing, saying: “No, they’re not. That’s the thing.
“When I go down the street, I get kids coming up to me. Half of them don’t even know who he [Paul] is, that’s why he’s got to do songs with Rihanna and Kanye West, so people remember.”
Paul recently recorded ‘FourFiveSeconds’ with RiRi and Kanye, just FYI.
She continued: “When I go down the street, it’s ‘Oh my god, you’re a ski-racer’ or ‘You help the animals.’ You know, I own the biggest vegan company in the world.
“This is just someone I fell in love with who to me was a normal guy that happened to write a few cool songs in the ’60s and a few in the ’70s.
“Like everybody that’s a partner, you fall in love, you get married, you sometimes then go ‘Oh my God, this is completely wrong,’ you wake up, and you move on.”
Erm, harsh? ‘A few cool songs’ is probably the biggest understatement EVER, Heather.
Still, we can totally understand why she’s reluctant to keep talking about Sir Paul seven whole years after their nasty divorce.
We’re just not *entirely* convinced on the whole Paul McCartney not being remembered’ thing.
