Yoko Ono, widow of the late Beatle, John Lennon, is no stranger to the publishing industry. In fact, she has written several art books over the years, but the 76-year-old artist has never penned the intimate details surrounding her relationship with Lennon. In fact, she's been known to refuse to even speak of it in interviews.


Forty years of speculation about Ono's involvement in the break-up of the Beatles will finally be revealed to the public in the widow's own words. She recently told readers in a Q&A interview that she intends to finally pen a memoir, and hopes to publish the book by 2015.


A lot can happen in five years. In fact, conspiracy theorists are leaning toward the end of the world in 2012, so perhaps Ono is hoping to get out of actually doing it. She has stated in the past that her reluctance to expose the truth was based her on a desire to keep from hurting family members, so one has to wonder what's changed her mind.


Lennon's first wife, Cynthia Lennon, has put out two books about her own life and relationship with John Lennon over the years, but the controversy surrounding John,Yoko and the Beatles has intrigued fans for decades. Here's hoping she holds true to her commitment, and actually writes the memoir.

    I would be interested in reading that book. Being a fan of John and Yoko, it would be nice for her to open up a little, but I am not so sure she will actually go through with it.

    I like your theory that she's actually trying to get out of doing it by scheduling it to be published after the world ends. She's a clever one, that Yoko.
