Actor Warren Beatty admitted that he really does "think this song is about him" several times a week.
Long rumored as the subject of the Carly Simon hit "You're So Vain," which includes the lyrics "I bet you think this song is about you," Beatty admitted in a tearful press conference that his thinking this song is about him is so prevalent, that he not only does it when he hears the Simon hit, but even when he hears such standards as "Kung Fu Fighting" and "Eating Goober Peas."
"I have a problem, I think this song is about me, and I admit it" said Beatty.
Those close to the actor admit the problem has gotten out of hand. One source said "Whenever he hears 'Happy Birthday' he thanks everyone in the room for coming to his party and even starts to look around for presents. It's almost impossible to explain to him that it isn't his birthday."
Another friend added that Beatty recently heard the 70s hit "Don't Go Breakin' My Heart" and began proposing to several women in the immediate area. The friend said that when Beatty recently heard the Police song "Every Breath You Take" he began taking out restraining orders on everyone he knew.
Beatty insists that his problem isn't that bad and in fact many people are inspired by music, and even take it personally to a degree. Unfortunately the piped in music in the room included the Beatles song "Get Back" and Beatty was forced to leave abruptly.
