McCartney Slams Madonna And Robbie

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY can't stand the music of MADONNA and ROBBIE WILLIAMS, despite respecting the artists as nice people.

The former BEATLE shared the stage with the MATERIAL GIRL and ex-TAKE THAT hunk at the London Live 8 earlier this year (02JUL05).

After Williams' song ANGELS was named Best Song of the past 25 years at February's (05) Brit Awards, McCartney says, "I wasn't that convinced by Angels winning the best song of the last 25 years.

"I think for an ex-boy group person, he's done well. He makes pretty good records for his audience. But I'm not a Robbie fan."

Despite admitting he has met Madonna several times, McCartney's is far from enamoured with her music, saying, "I've met her and she's a pretty cool person, but her records have never really turned me on."

Well in my opinion, it is your choice to say anthing you want except your opinion, cause no one asked you to give an opinion to anyone. If you dont like the music it is not the ppl or world business, so keep ur opinion for yourself. Madonna with a 20 years music career and now ur telling the ppl that u dont like the music? well sorry but it is a shame that u feel jelous about that, so take a look at her music chart and u'll find out what is Madonna. By the way i dont even know that McCarthy sorry but ur an unknown person, as i think ur oldies music singer, but how would i know Martika and i dont know you??

Excuse you! Paul McCartney beats Robbie WIlliams any day, and, furthermore, he is entitled to his own opinion about other artists' songs. Nobody ever said that they have to like his music, either, so leave him alone!

Yea. I think the reason other artists start saying bad things about Madonna is because of pure jealousy. She's almost 50 and still have the power to dominate the music charts all over the world. I mean, take a look at Elton John! He's always bashing Madonna for the most nonsense reasons... And now, sir McCartney...Well, it's ok if he doesn't like Madonna's music. But I think it's a shame using the media to say unnecessary things like this. He's only breaking he's own image saying things like this. I think he should be more careful before transforming into the next "Elton John".

Um...Sir Paul McCartney is the right person to criticize and he has A LOT more money than Madonna can ever dream of having.All you lot who are bagging Paul need to do some hard research! I doubt very much when Madonna has ever had an ablum that was number 1 for 51 weeks! And the rest....just have a look at what Paul and the Beatles have accomplished (and still do) before you start with your ravings about how good (sic) Madonna is. Cause you know what? She isn't. AND her biggest selling single wasnt even written by her!!! So there!Go Paul!!!
