McCartney revealed to Wilson that All Day — the hugely popular track on Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo — nearly never made it to the public after the rock star was advised by Oprah Winfrey, of all people, NOT to work with Yeezy!

Oprah had gotten on Paul's case because, as he tells it, she didn't approve of 'Ye's use of the 'n-word,' and she strongly angled McCartney not to collaborate with the rapper.

Paul McCartney has played thousands of concerts in his day, but even he didn't see this coming!

The music legend made a young fan's dream come true at his Tuesday concert in Buenos Aires, Argentina when he invited a 10-year-old girl on stage to jam with him!

After McCartney spotted Leila Lacase holding up a sign in the audience and brought her up to the stage, she casually told the former Beatle that she wanted to play bass with him.

Genuinely taken back, the Maybe I'm Amazed singer instructed a roadie to drape a white bass guitar over the young fan's shoulders before they rocked out to The Beatles classic Get Back!

Not only did Lacase keep up with the rock icon, she even added vocals when McCartney lowered the mic for her!

Since the tragic passing of Prince last month, almost everyone under the sun has honored the legendary musician with emotional performances and touching memories.

But Paul McCartney saved his tribute to the Purple One for his Wednesday concert, because he was playing in the late icon's hometown of Minneapolis!

Kicking off the first of his two-night stop at the Target Center in Minnesota, the former Beatle stood in front of Prince's famous symbol while rocking out to a rendition of Let's Go Crazy.

After the performance, the 74-year-old dedicated the show to "the late, great Prince," telling the audience:

"Here's to the man. Loved that guy. Thank you, Prince, for writing so many beautiful songs, so much music. And he's your guy."

This touches our hearts!

Move over, Keith Richards! You're not the only British rock legend who dabbles in piracy!

Beatles co-founder Paul McCartney is getting in on the fun too, as he's filming a brief appearance in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales!

And he's boarding late!

The fifth installment in the Disney ride-turned-film franchise, set to bow in Summer 2017, has already wrapped principal photography with returning stars Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Geoffrey Rush.

But apparently directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning are adding one more scene with the FourFiveSeconds singer.

We have no idea what it could be, but considering it's after the fact we're guessing Disney is bringing the Marvel Studios post-credit scene to the open sea.

What do YOU think of Paul in Dead?
