London, March 7: Former Beatle Paul McCartney says he is struggling to cope with fame in the digital age.
The 69-year-old has spent most of his life in the spotlight. But McCartney, who married third wife Nancy Shevell last year, reveals the boom in modern technology makes it much harder for him to go unrecognised.
“It’s never been as hard as it is nowadays to be famous. And I should know what I’m talking about, because I’ve got decades of experience in the subject. Today everybody’s got a telephone with a built-in camera,” contactmusic.com quoted McCartney as saying.
“I’m always polite to the people that speak to me. No need to make it complicated. I’ve known from an early age that for the public I am an exciting figure – and I have had time to get used to it. But even for me nowadays it sometimes gets too much,” he added.
