Attention Whore

I dream of the day when I no longer have to hear about Yoko Ono’s psychotic fantasies. Sadly, this is not that day.

The sociopath banshee best known as John Lennon’s second wife (oh, and for breaking up the Beatles!) just got a songwriting credit on Lennon’s Imagine.

World-Class Moocher

Don’t be fooled: this is nothing more straight-up money grabbing. The woman has no talent of her own, so has to ride her husband’s coat-tails — even in death. Anywhere there’s a Beatles penny to be snatched, she’s sure to show up.

Petty as They Come

Ono famously threatened legal action against Paul McCartney, after the singer changed songwriting credits on a 2002 album.

Oh, Sir Paul didn’t omit John Lennon’s name entirely. He just listed the credits as “Paul McCartney and John Lennon,” and that old hag got pissed it didn’t say “Lennon-McCartney.” She probably gets more dough if her dead hubby’s name is first.

In 1995, Paul wanted to list his name only for the song “Yesterday,” which, by the by, he wrote himself with absolutely no help from John. The other surviving Beatles gave their blessing, but Ono raised a stink. Still trying to destroy the band’s legacy after all these years.

Crazy Like a Fox

Don’t let Ono’s “demure artist” demeanor fool you, though. She’s a wily, cut-throat business lady if ever there was one.

Under current law, a song goes into the public domain 70 years after the writer’s death. Adding Ono’s name now extends that deadline decades into the future.

Yoko never did anything that interested anybody or would have generated any sort of income at all. She’s survived all these years solely on the talents of her late husband.

  1. John Lennon went on record saying not only did Yoko Ono deserve a song writing credit, but that her prior work had actually inspired the song. She should have had the credit years ago. Your lack of history knowledge is shocking.
