Only One Question: Kanye: who is this Sir Paul?
I was running late last week for a catch up with Sir Paul McCartney at the Temple. To my devastation my personal assistant Kim Groman, yet to reach twenty years of age, decided to take it on herself to grill him about his latest collaboration with Kanye West.
Here’s how it went down…
Kim Groman: Thank you Sir Paul for joining me today. I must say Sir is an unusual name. Is it after someone? Your grandfather, father?
Sir Paul: Oh not again.. my first name is Paul. Just call me Paul. Sir is because I was knighted.. never mind. Paul is fine.
Kim Groman: Seriously? I apologise, it must be a typo as I have Sir here. Anywhat Paul…
Sir Paul: Yes. Look, where is Tamzen Temple. I was supposed to meet her here today.
Kim Groman: She, TT is on her way. She texted me, here I’ll show you. “traffic jam, please look after Sir Paul for me until I get there.”
Sir Paul: Well a cup o tea would be nice if you’re asking.
Kim Groman: No, I see this as fate, the stars have aligned to give me Kim Groman a chance to interviewing you Mr Sir an upcoming star.
Sir Paul: I think I’ll wait for Tamzen thanks.
Kim Groman: Look, Tamzen Temple is like double my age and doth not know about new music. She still likes some guys called Buckly and Freddie.. Now, what was it like to work with Kanye? I loveth Kanye.
Sir Paul: Oh brother, not again.
Kim Groman: I have been listening to Kanye since day 04… I was like ninish when my mum would play him super loud while she put on all her fake stuff before work on a Saturday night: you know, fake eyelashes, fake nails, fake tan…..
Sir Paul: Yes he has been around for a while.
Kim Gorman: I knows. He has shaped my life in a way and now he has given you a chance to fulfil your music dream.
Sir Paul: You know, I have been a musician most my life.
Kim Groman: Many have, but it’s breaking into the mainstream that’s the hardest. I love, as do my friends Bethany and Boo that you never gave up. Especially at a time when many retire into the sunset. Like did you ever consider buying a caravan and travelling Oz like most oldies your age?
Sir Paul: No, I can honestly say no.
Kim Groman: I suppose you need the moula to do that. Caravans are not cheap. Lucky for you one song with King Kanye may set you up in your retirement years.
Sir Paul: Yes I’m lucky….
I walked in during Kimbo’s interview and ended it promptly.
Sir Paul, or Uncle Paul as I call him flies over to the Temple on occasion to say hello.. My mum was a groupie from way back and when she said ‘she was with the band’, she really meant she was with all the bands, and roadies and cleaners…. it has always been questionable who my father was…
We narrowed it down to the one week of conception and ruled Sir Paul out but he still had a fondness for me knowing that one of his roadies could have been….
Oh mother.. She received monthly cheques from five different men, all happy to do so to keep her quiet.
Then I made Uncle Paul a cuppa and a scone as we joked about Kanye and the great love he has for himself.
There is Only One Sir Paul but there will be many Kanyes…..
Peace and Ommmmg I cannot believe this even happened….
