So what does 73-year-old English ex-Beatle Paul McCartney have in common with 37-year-old American rapper Kanye West?
As far as I can see NOTHING other than they have recently produced a single, Only One, together.
So why should this bother me? Well …
Not only has Sir Paul McCartney written incredible songs such as Yesterday, Hey Jude and Let it Be, but for many years he has been an animal activist.
His saying, “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian”, is often quoted.
McCartney teamed up with PeTA to produce a shocking video titled Glass Walls. This video exposes the horror in slaughterhouses, factory farms, live-animal transport and the fishing industry.
McCartney also explains the massive cost to the environment for which the meat industry is directly responsible.
McCartney has supported many animal rights causes.
Paul’s daughter, Stella McCartney does not use leather, skins (i.e. python, crocodile and other exotics), or furs in any of her fashion items.
On the other hand , Kanye West ~ rapper, songwriter and fashion designer ~ is rarely seen without wearing animal fur of some kind, be it a huge fur coat or fur trim.
West has a fondness for women who also wear fur, as seen below.
Help, I need some help!
Am I the only one who feels that McCartney’s recent collaboration with West is hypocritical?
It has also perplexed several hip hop fans, as evident from their comments below:
‘Who is Paul McCartney?, one fan wrote on Twitter while another posted: ‘This Paul McCartney guy gonna be huge.’ Thanks to Kanye West.
Another said, ‘who tf is paul mccartney???!??! this is why i love kanye for shining light on unknown artists’.
