LATEST: Yoko Ono has lashed out at the British media for suggesting she still bears a grudge against former BEATLE Sir Paul McCartney.

Ono allegedly took a swipe at McCartney's songwriting when she took to the stage at Q Awards last month (10OCT05) to collect a special award on behalf of her late husband, McCartney's former bandmate John Lennon.

But Ono insists any bad feelings have been invented by the media, because the pair called a truce on their turbulent past a long time ago.

She says, "People like to picture Paul and me in a boxing ring, feuding all the time, otherwise it's not exciting or interesting for them.

"People need light-hearted topics like me and Paul fighting to escape all the horror of the world, but it's not true anymore.

"I'm sure the next time we see each other it will be fine.

"We have clashed many times in the past. But I do respect Paul now for having been John's partner and he respects me for being John's wife."

This is quite true, there is no such fued as it is typical press nonsence. Because in the last five years John and Paul were the best of friends again. Yoko certanily has respected that, proving that the press are simply inventing something that does not exist. If had not been for that Mark Chapman Live Aid and Live 8 would have seen Beatles reunions. The Anthology Project would have seen brand new material.Next time you see anything stirred up by the press about this so-called fued, in the newspapers, then just tear them up as they are just talking rubbish. Because even Yoko would never shame John's memorary with such a fued because there is no fued and never will be.
