NEW YORK CITY - Paul McCartney was in New York City attending The 2014 New Year's festivities.
He was asked by Calcutta Cotton with Music Moments Magazine if it was true that he and Ringo Starr were going to be collaborating on a new album.
The 71-year-old McCartney smiled and asked, "Who's Ringo?"
Cotton laughed. McCartney giggled and replied that his goal for 2014 is actually to record a song with the star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, 8-year-old Alana Thompson.
"No?" asked Calcutta.
"But oh yes," McCartney replied, "I truly believe in my heart of hearts that little Honey Boo Boo has a great singing voice and she could become the next Miley Cyrus."
"No?" Calcutta asked again.
And with that McCartney told her to stop saying "No?" every time he makes a statement.
He noted that he is Paul McCartney of the Beatles and later Wings and when he says something it has been thought out and it is the truth not just some off-the-cuff cockamamie remark that the punk boy Justin Bieber makes.
She then asked him for a scoop.
Paul thought for a moment and then said. "Okay, here's a secret for ya that I have been keeping for 47 years. The Song that Johnny (Lennon) and I wrote back in 1966, titled "Penny Lane" was not really named after the street in Liverpool."
He continued on by saying that the song's title had actually come from His (Paul's) third grade teacher Penny Lane, a gorgeously sexy young woman that Paul developed a crush on.
