Sir Paul McCartney learning to ski

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.

Report: Lorde and Kanye West to collaborate on new music

Sep 18 2014 6:58pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Lorde and Kanye West have an age difference of 20 years, hail from entirely different parts of the globe, and are titans in two entirely different genres of music. Yet, as we’ve learned in recent months, the two musicians have a great deal of mutual admiration for one another. Lorde has covered Kanye’s tracks “Flashing Lights” and “Hold My Liquor” in concert, while Kanye told the 17-year-old pop star that he “liked the messages in my songs.”If a collaborative track sounds like the logica ...

America's Got Talent Finale: Who Should Win?

Sep 17 2014 5:45am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

And then there were two... who we believe should win America's Got Talent this summer. Yes, AcroArmy is an impressive collection of acrobatic prowess; and, sure singer Miguel Dakota has some pipes. We've been blown away at times by magician Mat Franco and we do hope the band Sons of Serendip has a bright future in front of it. But last night's performance finale of America's Got Talent drove home the point, at ...

DawBell: 'The definition of PR is changing by the day'

Sep 11 2014 8:35am CDT | Source: Music Week

Back in 2008, Richard Dawes and Stuart Bell were doing rather nicely in their respective careers. Dawes was head of press at Polydor, riding high on the success of the likes of Take That, Queens Of The Stone Age and James Morrison. Bell was a popular and fast-rising director at The Outside Organisation - to this day, one of the UK media’s most influential PR institutions.

All Together Now: The Beatles Are (Back) In Mono

Sep 9 2014 8:45am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

By now, three-fourths of the way through The Beatles' sort-of-official 50th anniversary year, Fab Four fatigue is understandable. The past eight months alone have seen the Emmy-nominated Night That Changed America TV special (based on the 50th anniversary of the group's landmark Ed Sullivan appearances), the reissue of the American album catalog, an ongoing flood of increasingly repetitive books and the indefatigable 72-yea ...
