Funny Paper said
On Paul avoiding eye contact of young female fans, I recall seeing a special that showed his backstage life in between concerts, approximately at the time during the last years with Linda, probably filmed in 96 or 97. At one point, he's in some hallway and has paused because a few people want his autograph.  One of them is a markedly attractive young brunette who hands him an album to sign.  The entire time he's with her and signing, he seemed remarkably demure, completely avoiding any eye contact or any nonverbal sign of anything, even when he handed the album back to her and was off on his way.

Interesting, thanks for the anecdote. The whole "sex symbol" thing is really a very strange reality to inhabit, when you think about it, and has all sorts of potentially messy implications on self-worth, reputation, and, of course, marital fidelity. I mean, I have to think Paul's insistence on stamping a big MARRIED! VERY VERY MARRIED! sign across his forehead for the past 40 years has as much to do with easing that pressure as with being a naturally uxorious guy. I think whatever awkwardness Paul feels nowadays about his sudden influx of young fans has to do with the way he separates his famous self from his real self (a sort of identity "splitting" he's talked about many times). When he's got his game face on, it's probably easy to be flirty, to fulfill the audiences' desire to be "wooed" by the cute one, to invite the occasional fan up onstage for a quick spoon, etc. ;P But the real self is still in there somewhere looking out, probably going "WTF" a little bit, and making sure things don't get carried away. So I think that's why he seems "demure" in more private, vulnerable moments, like standing backstage at the Grammys or meeting a fan in the hall. Or in interviews with Howard Stern! Who is seriously WAY too invested in Paul's sex life, lol. 

"So, back in the day, you banged TONS of chicks, amirite?"

"Um, well, I had relationships with many... very... nice people."

"So, you're dating EVERYONE right now, right? Christie, Rosanna, Renee?"

"STOP it, Howard."

These two Paul memes fit very well with this thread:

We have established this as a true statement:

However, we have also determined that Sir Paul McCartney, aged 71 years, would not say this:

-prosperous:rnrnpaulmccuntney:rnrn-prosperous:rnrnpaulmccuntney:rnrni dont get it :(rnrnPedo Paul. rnrn how is he a pedo tho i just dont get it :(:(rnrnI hope you’re trolling. It’s illegal for someone who is an adult to fuck a seventeen year old. And you know how Paul liked to fuck. rnrnOkay not to go all ~~serious business~~ on this tumblr because mostly I just like to cause problems but there are countries where the age of consent is below 17. For example the person who said they didn’t get it says they live in Scotland (I creeped on their tumblr. Sue me.), and the age of consent in Scotland in 16. Don’t be a dick to someone who doesn’t deserve it. But I don’t know. Maybe they were just trolling.rnAnd that’s the end of my rant. Play nice children.Image Enlarger

1. Do you ever have dreams about beetles with wings?

2. Is there anything about yourself that you could tell us that would make us quit liking you? By this point, I just can't imagine that you could come up with anything.

3. My favorite word is "defenestrate". What is your favorite word?

#2 is good.

And favorites could also be expanded --

favorite color,

favorite fruit,

favorite dessert,

favorite musical instrument to listen to,

favorite planet,

favorite movie,

favorite Beatle...blue-meanie

fruit?: I wonder if it is an apple (obvious reasons) or banana (mentioned in Hi Hi Hi and Monkberry Moon delight)

planet?: Venus? Mars?

Beatle?: I know we were saying he wasn't big-headed and stuck on himself, but ... he just might answer this one with "myself". Or perhaps he would go this route, "The cosmic conscious collision of all 4 of us lads. We should have just dropped the "s"." "We are Beatle; hear us perform!"

movie?: probably not Magical Mystery Tour

dessert?: Nancy's lips? Oops, again I digress.

musical instrument?: I think this has to be some kind of guitar.

color?: I just hope it isn't some flaky answer like "rainbow".
