Mccartney's Alter Egos

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY is living a double life - the former Beatles legend has secret public and private personas.
The Hey Jude hitmaker is one of the most famous faces on the planet, and admits the only way he can cope with the level of his celebrity is by becoming a 'normal person' behind closed doors.
The 64-year-old rocker explains, "I separate the real me from the famous me. It's a bit schizo... He does the shows and he's famous. And I go home and watch TV."
But MCCartney sometimes manages to escape his celebrity when out with fashion designer daughter Stella - because she's almost as famous as him now.
He adds, "When I meet young girls, they're not interested in me. They want to meet Stella. I tell them, 'I'm famous too.'"

Good comment. I hope to be still hearing Paul when "I" am 64 too! Hard to believe that young girls would rather ask about Stella because there are generations of Beatle fans everywhere! Stella rubs me the wrong way anyway, a little too arrogant for me.

I am not surprised at all by this article. Anyone who watches Paul closely can tell when he is putting on his different personas. His method of dealing with the public has come in handy for me on the job too--I just put on the Paul pleasing his fans attitude and I'm good.
