You have to admit that some of Paul’s un-hipness is a bit of a head scratcher. Yes, he wears trainers/sneakers with his suits. OK, we will admit that the whole thumbs-up, peace sign waving schtick is decades old. It’s just annoying and so not cool.
But, folks, remember he IS Paul McCartney. He can do whatever he wants. Are you going to be the one to tell him that he’s annoying? I thought not.
It looks like the people have voted, and he has been deemed the most irritating star. Personally, my vote would have gone to Mr. Meatloaf, Cher, Celine Dion, or Amy Winehouse. But that’s another story. Let Paul be irritating. He’s royalty, and I dare you to say it to him in person. He probably wouldn’t care anyway.
Here’s what we’ve read.
Beatles’ legend Sir Paul McCartney has been named the most irritating pop star of all time, by a new online poll.
The rocker was judged to be even more annoying than James Blunt, Lily Allen and Robbie Williams – who he beat to the top of the Musicmagpie.com survey.
Site spokesman Craig Dawson says, “It’s easy for musicians to get very irritating very quickly. MACca has driven people up the wall with his ‘holier than thou’ approach to his divorce, two-fingered peace gesture and penchant for wearing trainers with suits.”
The top ten ‘most irritating stars’ is as follows:
1: SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY
2: JAMES BLUNT
3: LILY ALLEN
4: ROBBIE WILLIAMS
5: AMY WINEHOUSE
7: SIR CLIFF RICHARD
8: PETE DOHERTY
9: JOSS STONE
10: CRAIG DAVID.
