Paul McCartney News Archive
Paul McCartney is a huge animal lover and big supporter of animal rights.
So of course he was so happy when the European Union (EU) enacted a law that banned all animal testing.
Cruelty Free International (Buav) is an organization that really spearheaded the ban in Europe, and now they've joined forces with Sir Paul to bring that ban to the rest of the world.
Paul McCartney certainly is a veteran performer.
It'd take more than a few bugs to get him to mess up a live show.
Actually, we feel like it'd take nothing short of a plague of locusts to throw him off his game.
That's kinda what happened to him at a show in Brazil.
While up on stage, for almost three hours, he was surrounded by grasshoppers, several of which landed on him while he was performing.
One in particular sat on his shoulder while he played.
Paul ended up naming the little guy Harold. Ha!
What a professional, to be able to keep playing and even make light of the situation.
Check out the video (above) to hear Paul talk about his locust buddies then still continue the show!
Paul McCartney honors his late wife each and every time he says no to meat.
The longtime vegetarian is marveling over the fact that more and more people are switching to cruelty-free diets, thanks to Linda and Linda McCartney Foods.
Paul blogs on the growth of the vegetarian industry (HERE) as more options for meals have opened up and the public's education on animal cruelty has improved.
