Sir Paul McCartney Admits To Using Autocue When Singing Because He's 'Thinking About Food'

Sir Paul McCartney Admits To Using Autocue When Singing Because He's 'Thinking About Food'

Sir Paul McCartney admit he uses an autocue while performing live as he's often distracted thinking about food. Celebrities really are just like us, aren't they?

The legendary singer confessed to using a prompter, despite singing some of the most well-known songs of all time.

Speaking on the Smartless podcast, Sir Paul, 78, said: "I have a teleprompter. Sometimes I'll be doing a song, like 'Eleanor Rigby' or something, and I'm on autopilot.

"And I'm starting to think, 'Oh, what am I going to have for dinner? Maybe you won't have the soup but maybe you'll just go for the main course'.

"Then I go, 'Stop!', because I'm singing 'Eleanor Rigby'!

"I've separated myself not only from Paul and fame, but a couple of bits in my head are going in different places. Sometimes that breaks down and I forget the song."

Fair enough, mate. I personally think about food all the time because I'm a greedy bugger, but each to their own.

Earlier this year, McCartney surprised no one by revealing he thought The Beatles were better than The Rolling Stones.

Speaking back in April, McCartney agreed while speaking to radio host Howard Stern, saying: "You know you're going to persuade me to agree with that one.

"They are rooted in the blues. When they are writing stuff, it has to do with the blues. We had a little more influences... There's a lot of differences, and I love the Stones, but I'm with you. The Beatles were better."

He continued: "We started to notice that whatever we did, the Stones sort of did it shortly thereafter.

"We went to America and we had huge success. Then the Stones went to America. We did Sgt. Pepper, the Stones did a psychedelic album. There's a lot of that.

"We were great friends, still are kind of. We admire each other... The Stones are a fantastic group. I go see them every time they're out. They're a great, great band."

However, when news got back to Stones frontman Mick Jagger, he said there was 'no competition'.

Talking to Zane Lowe for an Apple Music interview, Jagger said: "That's so funny. He's a sweetheart. There's obviously no competition.

"The big difference, though, is and sort of slightly seriously, is that The Rolling Stones is a big concert band in other decades and other areas when The Beatles never even did an arena tour, Madison Square Garden with a decent sound system. They broke up before that business started, the touring business for real."
