Article on how whatshername (Heather Mills, i.e. Miss irrelevant) has claimed that Paul is irrelevant. 

http://www.usmagazine.com/cele.....nt-2015153

"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 is — that's why he's got to do songs with Rihanna and Kanye West, so people remember."

"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," she added. "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.

Better to be irrelevant and unknown to the masses than known as "whats her name, that money grabber who bagged herself an ex- Beatle, oooh you know, she's got one leg, er. Heather?".

* From The Examiner:

Paul McCartney's website on March 17 unveiled a new use of 3-D printing – a three-dimensional Paul McCartney . The 3-D figure came out of his recent “Hope For The Future ” music video in which McCartney's form was scanned for the video. The website says that after the video was made, they asked for the film and they then turned him into a 3-D figure. A time-lapse video of the process to create the 3-D figure is here.

You can print the 3-D figure yourself. The file, which is 50 megabytes in size, can be downloaded here. You can either take the file to a local or online printing company who can make it for you or print it yourself if you have access to a 3-D printer.

From the Examiner:

The family of Beatles photographer Robert Freeman began offering a print on March 17 of an iconic photo of John Lennon holding a teddy bear to help the 78-year-old photographer who is in poor health. The photo, which will be available only until May 15, is titled “John Lennon with Panda (1965).” Orders for prints are available at Freeman's website.

The portrait shows Lennon sitting casually against a Japanese screen at his home in Weybridge, Surrey. The panda belonged to Lennon's son, Julian, who was two years old at the time. Sale of the print will raise much needed funds for Freeman, who needs ongoing care. The sale will also serve to benefit saving his his historic photographic archive that 60 years.

I did not know she did any of that crap. 
I know her as the woman crying on British T.V because some guy kept stealing one sock out of each pair on her line. 
And Paul's money grabbing ex. (But so does everyone else- Seriously how does she not realise this?)
Besides, Paul's doing fine. He doesn't need to go to the press and badmouth his ex in order to gain some attention for like a week. It's pretty pathetic.
Out of all this I feel most sorry for their daughter. How horrible to have your mother publicly slagging off your dad for no real reason. 

Every time I hear her name though I think of Russell Howards "Nick Clegg: The musical" song. Specifically the line "Now I'm more unpopular than bloody Heather Mills."

Wait , what? You get kids coming up to you on the street to tell you they don't know who Paul McCartney is? That ... that doesn't even make sense. "Hi, random lady, just wanted to let you know I don't know who Paul McCartney is!" Or, weirder still, "Hi, aren't you Heather Mills McCartney? By the way, who is Paul McCartney ?"

Crazy tart. I'm willing to bet that 100% of the people who know her also know Macca.

Doesnt she also go on talk shows and bitch about how folk ask her about Paul when she has got so much else to talk about? No one gives a shit about her other ventures. She's in the same category as Pete Best - talk about Beatles stuff and we might give you 3 seconds to plug whatever crap you want. Heck Ringo only gets about 5 minutes on whatever he is plugging, Paul 6 so Heather is insanely deluded if she thinks she is going to get Any Time At All .

Liverpool's Royal Court Theatre, which recently underwent a £2.8 million refurbishment, will host the show for five-and-a-half weeks between Thursday, October 8 and Saturday, November 14.

The run coincides with John Lennon 's 75th birthday, which falls on October 9.

* From Newsweek:

Moscow city council is currently discussing a proposal to commission a statue of rock legend John Lennon in the Russian capital, according to notes for an upcoming council meeting.

Moscow councillors will meet next month to discuss the erection or relocation of monuments in the Russian capital, and as well as suggestions to honour the city’s military medics and students, the local governing body will also discuss whether to erect a statue of Beatles frontman and rock'n'roll icon John Lennon .

The initiative for building the monument has been proposed by fans of the musician, who are also prepared to cover the costs of designing and building it, Moscow Council’s head of monumental art Lev Lavrenov told local TV channel M24, who also added that usually similar monuments are requested to be erected in central Moscow.
