Paul McCartney Calls for More Meat Free Mondays

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Charity,

Paul McCartney's PETA adPaul McCartney believes that livestock are responsible for a large percentage of global warming. The Beatles legend - who is vegetarian - has written a letter to the Conference of the Parties (COP) climate change conference in Doha urging for the Meat Free Monday campaign to be adopted in a bid to slow down the apparent damage done by the ever-growing meat industry.

In the letter to conference leaders Ms. Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, and Mr H.E. Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, President-Designate for COP 18, he wrote, "Although more and more evidence is coming to light showing how the growth of the global meat industry is having alarming environmental consequences, the impact of the livestock sector on global warming does not as yet seem to have been acknowledged by the Conference of the Parties (COP). I therefore call upon you to bring this issue to the attention of the conference and encourage the adoption of policy and individual actions, such as a weekly meat-free day."

Paul McCartney with Johnny DeppPaul McCartney's family gets nervous when Johnny Depp comes to visit.

The Beatles legend says his wife Nancy and his fashion designer daughter Stella McCartney act very unnaturally when the handsome Edward Scissorhands actor stops by his house, and even he feels the need to smarten up for his "special guest."

"John - if I can just drop a name there - comes visiting quite a lot. It's cool. I had my daughter and her husband and the kids staying there recently, and my little one Beatrice. I said to them all, 'By the way, Johnny Depp is coming round.' They all perked up - 'Oh yeah?' I said, 'Yeah, he's coming round tomorrow.' That morning I come into breakfast and the first guy coming in is Mary's husband, and I say, 'You look very smart today.' Then Nancy comes in, she's all smartened up - make-up, you know. Normally, everyone bowls in bleary-eyed. Then suddenly they are all laughing at me because I'm in a waistcoat and I've done it too - subconsciously made a real effort. Everyone, Beatrice, all smartly dressed for our special guest," he told The Sun.

Paul McCartney lays flowers at Whitney Houston's memorialSir Paul McCartney has personally laid flowers for Whitney Houston. The Beatles legend was in Los Angeles when the 48-year-old singer was found dead at the city's Beverly Hilton hotel on Saturday and wanted to leave a personal tribute to the "I Will Always Love You" star.

He was seen with wife Nancy Shevell at the makeshift memorial created outside the hotel yesterday dressed casually, and left a bouquet of yellow roses at the scene. When fans tried to congratulate Paul on his performance at the Grammy Awards the previous night, he shrugged it off.

"This is about Whitney, not me," TMZ reports that he insisted.

Following Whitney's passing, a host of stars have paid tribute to the singer. Mariah Carey tweeted, "Heartbroken and in tears over the shocking death of my friend, the incomparable Ms. Whitney Houston."

Heather MillsHeather Mills was left terrified by a cancer scare before Christmas. The 44-year-old former model - who lost her left leg below the knee in when she was hit by a police motorcycle in 1993 - revealed doctors found a tumor in the limb late last year which thankfully turned out to be benign.

"An MRI scan picked up a tumor in the top of my left leg, which is the same one I had amputated below the knee 19 years ago. I had to go back into the MRI machine and they put a dye into it. Doctors said it had been there for some time. It all happened very quickly. Thankfully it was all fine. Doctors told me the tumor was benign, not cancerous," she explained.

Heather has hopes of competing in the 2014 Paralympics skiing competition but admitted she is happiest when enjoying a more leisurely approach to her "miracle child," eight-year-old daughter Beatrice, from her marriage to Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney.

John Lennon and Paul McCartney during happier days

A lost interview reveals that John Lennon told Paul McCartney he wanted “a divorce” months before The Beatles split.

The dialogue between with the guitarist and singer reveals that he told his co-songwriter of his intentions to split the band in September 1969, before the release of their last album Let It Be.

Until now, it has widely been thought that Paul was responsible for the group—which also featured Ringo Starr and George Harrison—splitting, when he quit the band in April 1970. In the taped interview, John said that he told Paul when they fell out at a record company meeting.
