Stolen music publishing, and financial bitch slaps. Celebrities – they’re just like us!
A candid Paul McCartney took to the Letterman couch last night and confessed intimate details of his friendship breakup with Michael Jackson.
The former Beatle – unprompted by Letterman for reasons behind the rift – explained the reason behind the superstar fallout: “It actually kind of fell apart later,” he explained. “He asked me for business advice… and I said “Think about getting into music publishing.”‘ “He looked at me and kind of went, “I’m gonna get yours.”
And after Jackson began managing the historic catalogue? Paul explained: “I kept thinking it was time for a raise. I did talk to him about it… but he kept saying, “It’s just business, Paul.” We kind of drifted apart.”
Who knew Jackson was such a shrewd businessman?
