Only yesterday — across-the-mystery-tour: John Lennon, 1965. T H...

Damn. I wish I looked that sharp (let’s be fair, that suit is pretty sharp to begin with). John, as ridiculed as he was for his looks he really had his way of going insanely cool if he wanted to. He sometimes chose not to. That’s a power move right there.

I know there were comments from reporters and such labeling him as the “fat Beatle” and because of that John had a lot of insecurities and body image issues, but besides that, I couldn’t see how else John was ridiculed. 

I, for one, never found John “fat” or unattractive” in any way. He might’ve gotten a bit thicc at some points but he wasn’t f— fat

I love love love John’s RS look. What an absolute snaccc. And as much as I enjoy looking at him in the jacket, I, at the same time, really really want that jacket. Even though I’m a female, I bet I could pull it off…..I could outfit it over a black t-shirt or camisole tucked into some high-waisted jeans, cuffed at the ankles, with my matte black Docs a-hard-days-night-paul-7……and maybe I could definitely pull off Lennon’s hat too and I have my floral shades…….It would make a terrific autumn look ahdn_george_01ahdn_john_08_gif

Look out, world, here comes modern-day auburn-haired American female John Lennon

This is quite possibly one of the weirdest strings of text I have seen in my life. I joined this server thinking it was a family-friendly, Christian oriented Minecraft server.

Side note: If I may add something, let it be known that Paul is indeed quite handsome (or “hot”, if you will)

I was actually talking about his hippie face with the hair and all that, which I personally think it was an awesome look, but you know the media wasn’t ready for it so they made a day out of mocking him. And also people talked about his nose a lot, every time they caricaturized him they would make him ugly with a much bigger nose than he had, which is a shame because he had a lovely face, even if it wasn’t the stereotypical attractive face. To be honest, I never heard anything about him being fat where did that came frommccartney-shrug_01_gif I never saw him without a shirt on but I always thought he was skinny.

John himself said he became fat and called ‘Help !’ his “fat Elvis period”.

 “When ‘Help ‘ came out in ’65, I was actually crying out for help. Most people think it’s just a fast rock ‘n roll song. I didn’t realize it at the time; I just wrote the song because I was commissioned to write it for the movie. But later, I knew I really was crying out for help. It was my fat Elvis period. You see the movie: He — I — is very fat, very insecure, and he’s completely lost himself. And I am singing about when I was so much younger and all the rest, looking back at how easy it was. Now I may be very positive… yes, yes… but I also go through deep depressions where I would like to jump out the window, you know. It becomes easier to deal with as I get older; I don’t know whether you learn control or, when you grow up, you calm down a little. Anyway, I was fat and depressed and I was crying out for help. In those days, when the Beatles were depressed, we had this little chant. I would yell out, ‘Where are we going, fellows?’ They would say, ‘To the top, Johnny,’ in pseudo-American voices. And I would say, ‘Where is that, fellows?’ And they would say, ‘To the toppermost of the poppermost.’ It was some dumb expression from a cheap movie, a la ‘Blackboard Jungle,’ about Liverpool. Johnny was the leader of the gang.”

He looks great here. Very boyish charm and innocent, I suppose I’d put it. 

My favourite Beatles John look is White Album / Mad Day Out, etc.

John looks amazing in 1965, I’ve never agreed with him being fat but that’s how he felt and it must have been insane going thru all that. John was very aware of his failings and really struggled to accept himself for a very long time so it must have been incredibly difficult to have had so many people adoring him every place he went, every time he opened up a newspaper.
