Sir Paul McCartney not a-mused by Kanye’s ogling
SIR PAUL McCARTNEY says he found working with Kanye West ‘intriguing’ after accusing him of spending his time in the studio ogling at photos of his wife Kim Kardashian.
Macca, back with a new album, Egypt Station, revealed the hurdles of working with the 41-year-old on their Rihanna collaboration FourFiveSeconds.
He recalled: ‘I was tootling around on guitar, and Kanye spent a lot of time just looking at pictures of Kim on his computer. I’m thinking, “Are we ever gonna get around to writing?!”’
But he went on: ‘It turns out he was writing. That’s his muse. He was listening to this riff I was doing and knew he could use that, so he took it, sped it up and got Rihanna to sing on it. She’s a big favourite of mine anyway, so that just came without me lifting a finger.’
