To be a fly on the wall at this party…
The Foo Fighters frontman was about to play Best Of You when he went into a story about going to a party at the former Beatles' house and watching the legend perform a song on the piano… only to end up jamming out with the two superstars while incredibly high!
Here's how Dave sets the scene at McCartney's house, fresh with an unlikely assist from "Batman," as he refers to T-Swift (below):
It's brave of Paul McCartney to admit this.
In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, Paul got real about his history with racist terms and how he has learned from his mistakes. The sit down couldn't have come at a better time considering America's continued struggle with racial issues.
Per the candid convo, McCartney blames ignorance for his intolerant views when he was a kid. It's important to note that the singer is 73-years-old, which means he grew up during the height of our country's civil rights movement.
Speaking on that regrettable time, the icon revealed:
We're just lucky the collab happened anyways!!
Paul McCartney appeared on BBC Radio 4's show Mastertapes to discuss his career with host John Wilson, and over the course of a 45-minute interview where the former Beatles singer revealed so much about his life and times, he also tipped off one VERY inneresting modern day tidbit!
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.
The British musician revealed:
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!
Ch-ch-check out McCartney's AH-Mazing hometown tribute (below)!
Taylor Swift had one hell of a 2015!
With the mega success of her Grammy-winning album 1989, and her epically lucrative 1989 World Tour, the New Romantics songstress was the top earner of last year!
Swifty absolutely slayed the competition, earning a whopping $73.5 million largely thanks to her tour — which cashed in $61.7M for her 2015 haul.
But other factors like album sales and streaming sales helped — and even Ryan Adams' 1989 cover album helped make the pop star the top earner of publishing royalties!
While Swift's success isn't that surprising, the rest of the top ten earners may be…
