Miley Cyrus may be at the receiving end of harsh abuse over her MTV VMA's performance, but a former Beatle has voiced his support. The Metro UK reported on Monday that Paul McCartney doesn't see anything wrong with Cyrus or her controversial antics. In an interview with Sky News, McCartney said that he has no problem with his 10-year-old daughter watching the performance, proclaiming
Come on, we've seen worse than that! I watched it as an experiment to check, but you look at it and you say 'what's everyone shouting about?' I think it was only mildly shocking . . . it wasn't explicit at all."
McCartney also admitted that he's been known to enjoy a bit of One Direction on more than one occasion, saying that the "young, beautiful boys" can sing and make good records.
McCartney is currently making the press rounds while he promotes his new album, aptly entitled, "New." The singer will also be making a special appearance at the Oxford Street HMV in London on Friday. McCartney will sign copies of his new album at the same location The Beatles cut their first demo disc that led them to meeting George Martin and signing with EMI in 1961. The former Beatle also treated fans to a surprise concert in Times Square last week.
