Paul McCartney discusses fame and vegetarianism on BBC Radio 4’s Today program

by John Curley—Paul McCartney recently appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Today program on which he discussed quite a few topics, including fame and vegetarianism, with host Sarah Montague. McCartney talked about his idea for Meat Free Mondays, which he said would combat global warming. 

On the subject of fame, McCartney said: 

“Fame can get pretty annoying but now I have rules, I’ve finally grown up and finally realized I’ve got rights. I’m happy to talk to people on a one-to-one human basis but the minute they turn me into this celebrity that I’m pretending not to be for that minute, I sort of say no, I’m not going to do that.”
