To Sir, Without Love

Maybe I'm amazed Paul McCartney is blaming his split from wife Heather Mills McCartney on the media. Honestly, I expected better from a knight.

Funny, well not ha ha funny, but his 30-year marriage to Linda only ended when she died of breast cancer. I’m sure there was plenty of media “interference” during those three decades.

While the constant intrusion of the media must be almost intolerable for someone of Sir Paul’s visibility, it’s how you and your spouse choose to cope and treat each other as a result of that lack of privacy that speaks to the sincerity of your love and the strength of your union.

At least, that’s the way it seems to me.

The relationship started off well enough. He was a widower and she was an activist for some of his favorite causes; they met up at a charity event.

And what wedding that takes place at an Irish castle and features a truckload of Guinness (literally) and a vegetarian feast can lead to anything but greatness? Sir Paul's, apparently.

Macca, where was my invitation? If I had been there to toast the happy bride and groom, with dark, frothy pint in hand, your marriage would have experienced nothing but good luck from thence onward.

Really, you try to help people, but they just won’t be helped!

Well, with a little luck and a lot of money (he’s one of the richest people in the world), Sir Paul will get back into the relationship thing before long.

And who knows, maybe the 63-year-old legend will stop dying his hair now. (I’m not one to talk about men’s looks, or about hair for that matter, but I just hate phony, ya know?)

Sir Paul, just make music – not excuses for your failed marriage.

that's one strange website this blog links to.

slow news day, eh bogs?

i wonder how much living in linda's shadow played a role in this failed marriage?

but i don't wonder too much.

just let it be.

bird - not a slow news day... I post whatever's got my attention at the moment...

that is a Macca (Paul McC) lunatic fan (fanatic) site... I found it by a web search... I wasn't sure that many people knew "Macca" is his nickname... hence the link... thanks for flying by!

Paul is a Socialist

Pete Bogs said...

hell - anyone as rich as he is has to be a capitalist... excessive wealth and socialism are incompatible...

CROAK said...

I thought it was Heather who said she couldn't stand the media stuff... what did she expect? Anyway no one knows what happens in the bedroom and that is where a marriage usually fails... one way or another.

Bird said...

paul's a socialist?

so what?

who cares?

oblidee, oblidah
or was that one of john's songs?

Hellpig said...

Bird don't comment to me until you go to Aunty's and answer the question put forth!

Robin said...

yes, I agree, he can do better.. than to blame someone else.

Pete Bogs said...

birds, pigs, frogs and puppies, oh my!!!

hey pete

i think it would be difficult to find authentic love when you are as famous as paul is.....everyone grew up thinking they know you. i read that his daughter stella hated heather mills and that's got to hurt.

...and linda mccartney was an artist in her own right which meant she had an identity before and beyond paul as well as her own money from the eastman (kodak) family. that was a good match.

Bird said...

HP: i'll comment to you when and how i please and i have no need to bother with your irrelevant questions, particularly since you already know the answer.

oblidee/oblidah/blah!

(apologies bogs - pig and i have been having at it over at aunty belle's - at the very least, it is somewhat amusing.)

Stella's hot and she's a fabulous designer! Hmmm, she still with Chloe? I should really keep on top of things...

Pete Bogs said...

gn - I imagine it's hard to be sure if someone really loves you when you're so famous... still, can't blame the media for your own problems... too convenient, and very uncharacteristic for Paul, who tends to be a straight shooter...

bird - I saw a bit of Aunt B's post... no worries...

flab - Stella is in fashion designer (I think) and is as much of an activist as her dad... I heard she called was friends with Madonna but ended that after Madonna started hunting with her hubby... I do remember seeing Stella with a very revealing shirt that also had a profanity on it... it was fun hearing her dad being asked about it... he said something to the effect that kids are very bold and outspoken these days... cool dad!

Aunty Belle said...

Folks, now ya knows full well that Socialists are such in order to get rich--offa you, of course. truly pets. rich folks are often socialists AFTER they get theirs and wanna stop you from gettin any--see, they's suddenly so smart that they know what's best fer ya and they'll do it fer ya and you jes' keep smokin funny weed and marchin' fer a cause and feel important, while they play nanny state to ya, while amassin' piles of green. (Soros, T Turner, M.Strong, etc...) Gimme a giant break chickens--rich capitalists become socialits in order to STOP the competition of capitalism.

Pete Bogs said...

Aunt B - are you saying politics broke up the McCartneys?

Hellpig said...

what did you say Bird? you are a card carrying ACLU socialist hipocrite,that's what I thought you said.
