Paul McCartney praised the Queen in a new CBS interview, discussing the essay he wrote for her. Paul McCartney Leaks Bold Elvis Presley Secret.
“I think the thing about the Queen is that she’s – she’s royal, so you look up to her cause she’s royal. But she’s very down to Earth.”
“Let’s go to Paul McCartney at 10. What happened at 10?” CBS’ Gayle King asked McCartney.
McCartney answered, “Because the coronation was approaching, … there was a competition for all the schools in England you had to write an essay on the monarchy. And I liked that idea.”
McCartney’s essay “had the lyrics of a love song, as Macca wrote the paper about ‘our lovely young Queen.”
McCartney proclaimed, “And lo and behold, I actually won it. I won my division. And I’m very nervous because they called out my name. … And I, like, stumbled up with legs of jelly, and it was the first time I’d ever kind of really been on a stage.”
Paul McCartney has stayed active during the pandemic, writing children’s books, releasing his ‘Reimagined’ album featuring artists like Josh Homme and St. Vincent, and doing several media interviews despite not being able to tour. McCartney likely hopes to return to the road as 2022 approaches.
