71-year-old music icon Paul McCartney
recently discussed reconciliation, revealing that at this point in life he is willing to offer forgiveness and bury the hatchet with just about anyone aside from one person.
The musician told Rolling Stone
that after years of bad blood between John Lennon
's widow Yoko Ono
and himself, he's moved on and even gave Yoko notable props.
Describing her as "bada-s,"
McCartney explained: "If John loved her, there's got to be something. He's not stupid. It's like, what are you going to do? Are you going to hold a grudge you never really had?"
As for the one person that doesn't deserve forgiveness in Paul's book, the bassist was referring to Lennon's murderer Mark David Chapman
. "I think I could pretty much forgive anyone else,"
he said. "But I don't see why I'd want to forgive him. This is a guy who did something so crazy and terminal. Why should I bless him with forgiveness?"
When it comes to former Beatle's current endeavors, McCartney has released his latest studio effort "New
" on October 11 through Virgin EMI Records. With 67,000 units shipped in the US within the first week, the album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200
