I saw the documentary in the original post a few months ago, mainly because I saw the 'massive ego' bit, and clicked on it. Pure clickbait. If anything,the documentary actually shows the opposite of what this person is claiming. And if he has a bit of an ego,so what? I think he's earned the right! He's a phenomenal musician, good looking, charismatic, fucked loads of hot women,made a ton of money, and he was in the Beatles,the greatest band ever,a band that are still influencing musicians today. So yeah,an ego,if he has one,is certainly understandable. To me,he always comes across as open and honest,polite, courteous etc.

 

Paul, keep doing you mate. Ignore the haters. I'm sure if he ever reads negative comments about himself,he probably does so with a massive grin on his face while counting his fortune. It must feel so good to be him

All four Beatles had massive egos, to pick Paul out and gripe is to conveniently overlook how the other three could be. The four had to have huge egos to get to where they wanted to.

Its unbelievable how some pop stars can even function as people when you think about how much attention they get. A little bit of ego is understandable, especially in a working environment. Paul does an excellent job of managing his fame well because he is very intentional about it. He’s been doing it for a long time.

Others don’t react in the same way. Cobain was torn apart by his struggle with ego and fame. Many celebrities turn to drugs and partying. John certainly did. People today like Katy Perry do a solid job managing their fame and influence, while others like Justin Bieber and Kanye West do not.

I don't think any celebrities will ever do a better job at managing their fame and influence than the Jo Bros. <3

But about Paul's ego, I think it is massive and I don't think there's a problem with it at all. I don't know him personally, but he doesn't appear to me to come off as condescending to others, which is when I think having a large ego really becomes an issue. Thinking (or knowing) that you are talented and great is a good thing. Everybody should be able to value and take pride in what they accomplish.

Yeah,I know what you mean. Whoever made the 'Massive Ego' comment is clearly not a Paul fan, and that's fine. I just found it hilarious that the documentary did the complete opposite ie show him to be friendly, courteous and inclusive to most. Trying to live your life while having cameras following you around must be a drag at times (I know I wouldn't like it),but that's the price of fame I guess. I can only think of one instance where he lost his temper with the press (when they followed him to Scotland and he threw a glass of water over the guy), and even after that,he still invited them in and gave them their story anyway. He's a class act

Just a little joke. I can understand where someone who isn't a big/at all a Macca fan labelling this video as him just showing off his ego, but hey, everyone has had it to do it sometime, and of course as a Macca fan, I found it quite fun to watch! I enjoyed the cover of Fly Me to The Moon and the bits where he interacted with the other rock stars. Those Weinstein parts are pretty awkward though...

Couldn't have said it better. Paul is one of the most successful musicians of all time yet in almost every interview he's polite, friendly, funny and he never comes across as condescending. His sillier songs show that he doesn't take himself too seriously and his decisions to work with artists like Kayne show that he doesn't think he's above others.

If Paul didn’t have a massive ego, we would never get to hear him show off!
