Will You Still Screw Me, Will You Run Through Me, When I'm 64?

Sir Paul McCartney (my favorite Beatle, BTW) will be facing a bitter 64th birthday next month due to a divorce settlement with his current wife, Heather Mills McCartney (aka "stumpy, the gold-digger"). The settlement, expected to be the largest in UK history, could net the former model upwards of hundreds of millions. McCartney's net worth is believed to be in the ballpark of 800 million British pounds sterling - that's $1.5 billion dollars to you and me. Whew.

Not bad for sucking in a grieving pop culture icon and only putting in 4 years. It actually makes you see Linda McCartney in a new light. At least she was in for the long haul.

Sour Grapes For The Dixie Chicks

Having completely lost their country music following for disparaging President Bush while on foreign soil, the Dixie Chicks are resigned to fact that their record sales and tours will never return to their previous heights.

"I'd rather have a small following of really cool people who get it, who will grow with us as we grow and are fans for life, than people that have us in their five-disc changer with Reba McEntire and Toby Keith," [Band Member Martie] Maguire said. "We don't want those kinds of fans. They limit what you can do."
Hmm. I don't recall them complaining that they were "limited" in what they could do when they were on the top of the charts. Lead singer Natalie Maines retracted an earlier apology that she had offered for her comment, saying "I don't feel he is owed any respect whatsoever".

Then again, the Dixie Chicks aren't owed any record sales whatsoever, either. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
