Paul McCartney Said Oprah Winfrey Didn’t Want Him To Work With Kanye Over N-Word
When it comes to rap music, it's well documented that Oprah is like Michael Jordan, she ain’t wit’ it.
During an recent BBC Radio interview, Paul McCartney revealed that Oprah Winfrey tried to talk him out of it:
“I get this track back, a thing called ‘All Day’: he’s taken my melody and he’s made it seriously urban, which is funny because the lyrics use the N-word — a lot!” McCartney explained. “People like Oprah, who’s a little conservative about that stuff, said, ‘You shouldn’t do it, even black people shouldn’t use that word. I said, ‘Yeah, but it’s Kanye! And he’s talking about an urban generation that uses that word in a completely different way. It’s the context. So I was actually pleased with it.”
Oprah be hatinnnnnnnnn’. Wonder if Sir Paul told Kanye this story. We can def see him spittin’ some disrespectful bars her way…
