    Yes, that story came from Halperin.

    Macca said recently: “The annoying thing is I have to pay to play some of my own songs. Each time I want to sing Hey Jude I have to pay.”

    What Macca said above is true, I saw him saying it in one interview, so it is not tabloid info.
    He is a bit hippocratic, as the same applies to all artists that he has in his catalogue, but of course because its Sir Paul McCartney, he should above all that

    Question Do you think it was wrong for Michael to take The Beatles Catalog away from Paul McCartney?

    Okay i hope this okay. i wanna start of this thread by saying that this no hate to both artists in any sort of way. i like both artists music. and if any artists did anything wrong i will speak out at it because it wrong and not right. both artists are not perfect at all and human beings.

    now with that being said.

    now i have two opinions here. do you think it was wrong for Michael to take catalog away from Paul?

    my first opinion is kind of yes. why?

    because paul want it that catalog but he didn't have the money to buy it right away. he was only teasing Michael about buying the catalog not him actually buying it.

    and my second opinion no. why?

    because Michael was a big fan of the beatles. not only that but it made more black/african americans and other backgrounds to come in company.

    do to all of this they friendship broke off and now Paul is on team Michael is guilty because of all this.

    in someways it sad because they were best friends and a stupid catalog broke their friendship. i understand things like this happens but it still sucks they friendship broke off because a stupid catalog.

    but anyway,

    leave your thoughts and opinions here.

    If Michael hadn’t bought it, someone else would have. The other bidders were huge corporations, and I wouldn’t even want to think of what they would have done with the catalog. Paul did have the money, but he thought the price was too high, so he didn’t bid on it. His loss. I like Paul, but he needs to let this rest. It’s not like he ended up in the poor house because of MJ.

    I highly doubt that Paul believing Leaving Neverland has anything to do with the catalog at all.

    No. Michael bought the catalog fair and square.

    Thank you for posting this- FACTS!!! 100%!! The lies that Paul McCartney has perpetuated all these years is just ONE of the reasons that the some in the industry and the MSM has this hate towards Michael. I wonder why Paul never speaks on the fact that Yoko Ono did not WANT him to have the rights to this catalogue. Paul could have cleared up this misinformation about Michael, years ago. YET, he allowed it to fester and fans of the Beatles, including the media and the industry used it against Michael. For newer fans of MJ, this is what all of the media hate is against Michael. The fake allegations have ALWAYS been a smoke screen. Older fans have always known the agenda behind the hate and jealousy of Michael and it has crap to do with fake abuse allegations.

    I agree with you.
    Let’s not forget that Paul McCartney was on David Geffen’s boat with Oprah, Gale and other conspirators when the child porn/NAMBLA film LN was shown. Yes, a big portion of this hate/jealousy toward Michael has a LOT to do with his purchase of the ATV catalogue. Another thing is that Michael refused Geffen’s advances toward him(confirmed by PEOPLE IN THE KNOW) years ago. Geffen never forgave Michael for that and threatened to destroy him. He is STILL trying to do that 11 years after his death. The viewing of the NAMBLA film on Geffen’s yacht was NO COINCEDENCE. Don’t be fooled by the fake allegations and the lies and manipulations of the media. This is and has ALWAYS been a part of the AGENDA! Every AWARE fan and supporter knows this and have known it for over 30+ years.

    This is the main reason why I don’t trust Paul anymore other and whining about the catalogue too much and why I hardly listen to the “Beatles” anymore.

    To the people here saying “I’m not listening to the Beatles after what Paul McCartney did to Michael.” You can still enjoy someone’s music and everything else about them but still criticize when they are wrong about things.

    You summed it. Also, Paul OWNS alot of other artists music (that is why he was viewed as the richest musician) and alot of black artists music. Bo Didley talked about Paul owning his music. where is the outrage on that? Let just keep it 100, many were upset that a black artist (MJ)was able to own the biggest white group music (Beatles). Amazing after MJ got the catolog, UK started calling MJ out of his name. Do they do that to anyone else (and lord knows there are many others who can be viewed as 'weird" or "odd" whom they do NOT disrespect if they want to stand behind that stupid logic)?

    I guess that Michael Jackson was the best heart to buy that.
    can you imagine in other hands? evil hands? a corporation who can't see the legacy, the art, just the money coming?
    Nahh... I'm happy it was w/ Michael.
