CHEER UP, PAUL: AT LEAST LENNON DIDN'T BEAT YOU

After Kanye West's announcement yesterday that, effectively, he'd won the Grammy for best album and even Bono knew that comes another example of bad sportsmanship in that category: apparently, Paul McCartney won't be inviting U2 to share the stage with him at any international music events soon, either. He threw a little bit of a strop, says Roger Friedman:

“The ex-Beatle got up and left with his very arrogant bodyguard. They weren’t exactly subtle about it, either.”

We'd love to know exactly how a bodyguard behaves in an arrogant fashion - "go on, attack him with a knife. I'm really only here to block snipers and dirty bombs" - unless Freidman was being sniffy about Heather.

But the depths to which Macca's black dog mood sank hurt others, too, says Friedman:

“He walked right past Sting without saying hello.”

Paul! There's no reason to be beastly to Sting. Okay, actually, there are loads of reasons to be beastly to Sting, but missing out on an award isn't one of them.

Did you ever take into consideration that Paul could give a good god darn about winning the Grammy. You can't count the amount of awards he's received and he more than likely went back stage to get ready for his appearancd in the end of the show. Do you really think Paul McCartney, I'm sorry, Sir Paul might simply have had to go to the loo? He was all smiles for Bono and I believe they were sincere. Get a life and a job with "People" Magazine; no they are too good for your journalistic style.

I shall ignore your cruel barb about People magazine - although, anonymous, you know bloggers *cry* too, inside - and just ponder: if he wasn't arsed about winning a grammy, why turn up? And why the big flounce out when he didn't?

It's a bit of a coincidence, isn't it, that his bladder just failed at the exact moment he lost?
