Sir Paul McCartney learning to ski

Feb 24 2014, 3:26am CST | by

Sir Paul McCartney is learning to ski.

The Beatles legend has been taking to the slopes every day with a personal instructor during his winter break in the French Alps in a bid to master the art of snowy activity.

However, while the 71-year-old singer has been making his way down the slopes, his wife Nancy Shevell, 53, has been keeping away from the icy conditions by staying in their private lodge.

The skiing trip couldn't have come at a better time for Sir Paul, who has been busy in the US for the past month making a special TV show 'The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles' to commemorate 50 years since the group first appeared on American television.

During the show, Paul and his bandmate Ringo Starr paid tribute to late Beatles, John Lennon - who was shot and killed in New York in 1980 - and George Harrison, who died of lung cancer in 2001.

Drummer Ringo 73, told the audience during the program: "We were in a band called The Beatles and whenever we play George and John are always with us."

The show aired on CBS on February 9 and featured performances from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Keith Urban, Katy Perry, John Mayer and Alicia Keys.

Paul's ex-wife, Heather Mills, is a paralympic skiier but was forced to pull out of the 2014 games because of an injury she suffered to her leg, which she later blamed on the equipment she was required to use by governing body IPC.

You know how I always say that Kim Kardashian and Duchess Kate are so much alike? Well, they have something else in common: they won’t stop taking vacations. Even when they’ve literally been on vacation the week before, they’ll take another vacation. Vacations on top of vacations. Endless vacations. With little to no “work.” So, yes, Kim Kardashian is on vacation again. The only reason I’m not mad about it is because taxpayers ...

Aug 19 2014 7:30am CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

The VMAs are this weekend, and while I'm excited about the upcoming show, I've been reminiscing about my favorite VMAs of all time: 1999. Chris Rock hosted, Smash Mouth and Blink-182 entertained during the preshow, Lauryn Hill was the queen of the moonmen, and Britney Spears joined *NSYNC for a medley of ". . . Baby One More Time" and "Tearin' Up My Heart." Fatboy Slim spun to "Praise You," J ...
