Paul McCartney has waited almost 30 years to Get Back the copyrights to songs he wrote for The Beatles.
Now, only FIVE more years to Let It Be, and the whole debacle will be Yesterday.
Much of The Beatles catalogue has been owned by Michael Jackson, now his estate, posthumously, since 1985, when the King of Pop reportedly paid $47.5 million for the Associated Television Corporation’s back catalog, which held hundreds of Beatles songs.
So not only has Paul been unable to cash in on his musical GENIUS for decades now, he has had to PAY MJ any time he wants to play a song he wrote!

This story has more drama and Kate Upton hasn't even responded yet!
Well, not officially at least.
After Victoria's Secret used an image of her from her for the back of their new catalog, it looked like the two were on good terms after that whole comment fiasco.
Then word got out that the photo was 2 years old and Kate was apparently PISSED because they didn't bother contacting her before using it.
Well, turns out, things were blown a bit out of proportion

So much for kissing and making up!
Kate Upton was just as surprised as we were to see her beautiful face on the back of the new Victoria’s Secret catalog — and she's PISSED.
It turns out the pic is from 2011, when the blonde bombshell and two-time Sports Illustrated cover girl was contracted to work with them, and she's miffed they didn't contact her to let them know they'd be using it.
We can see why Kate would be mad, especially since the photo was snapped BEFORE stylist Sophia Neophitou said all those nasty things, but since the photo technically belongs to VS, they probably didn't have to tell her anything.
Let it go, Kate. You have bigger and better things going on in your life anyway.

Hmm, we're kind of shaking our heads here.
In J. Crew's new catalog, the preppy company takes us on a "Bali adventure" where models are seen posing in the latest summer looks with local Balinese children.
The catalog includes captions like "our littlest local friends" while standing with young villagers wearing

As we've mentioned before, being an Abercrombie & Fitch model is anything but glamorous and won't make you rich.
Last week, 30 A&F models were on a seven-day shoot in Montauk "working" upwards of 13 hours a day and don't have much to show for it.
The ladies were lucky to bag $2,500 for the week-long shoot, guys only got $1,500. They were also given $13/day for food.
The ad agency Shahid & Co even monitored what the models ate and drank as well as their workouts. An agency supervisor even kicked out model Florian Van Bael after he ate a croissant at the wrong time.
This company needs to start treating their employees better, but we doubt that will happen. Ever.
