Aww, Yoko And Paul McCartney Are Friends Again (Sort Of)

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Paul McCartney says he gets along just fine with John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, despite the all the past resentment that seemed to have boiled between them.

Back when the Beatles were starting to deteriorate, Yoko’s tendency for hanging out in their recording studio and sitting in on private sessions irked Paul. But time, he says, has allowed him to let go of his grudge and heal. He mused:

“If John loved her, there’s got to be something. He’s not stupid.” Keep reading »

““She certainly didn’t break the group up. I don’t think you can blame her for anything. … When Yoko came along, part of her attraction was her avant garde side, her view of things,” he continued. “She showed him another way to be, which was very attractive to him. So it was time for John to leave.”

–That’s “cute” Beatle Paul McCartney, trying to definitively dispell the myth that Yoko Ono was responsible for the breakup of  the band. I know there are some diehard Beatles fanatics who will always hold Yoko responsible. But really? Do you think John Lennon would ever do anything he didn’t totally want to do? Come on. [Fox News]

Yoko Ono For Opening Ceremony

Remember when we told you about Angel Barta, the woman who claims Marc Jacobs like, stole her life for his collections and ad campaigns? We have a new entry into the “Maybe This Famous Person Ripped Me Off” category: Brooklyn designer Haleh Nematzadeh says Yoko Ono stole her designs for her latest collaboration with NYC brand Opening Ceremony. The Ono collection, you’ll remember, is full of handsy hands in all the wrong places.

Why Yoko would want to steal the collection and claim it as her own is beyond us: it just wreaks of derivative ’80s streetwear. But nevertheless! Nematzadeh says Opening Ceremony got their hands on her collection after she sent over one of her lookbooks for review. Perusing Nematzadeh’s site, there are a few hands-on designs, though her overall collection is a bit more varied than Ono’s looks. Keep reading »

When Yoko Ono says “makeup tips,” you pretty much have to assume going into it that there will be very little makeup involved. How much makeup, exactly? None. Zero makeup. In fact, I have no idea what kind of “tips” these are. But I’m sure they’re good, useful ones, whatever they are. “Take rainbow pills — but with caution.” Indispensable wisdom! Like a fine wine, Yoko gets weirder with age. I appreciate that. [Fashionista]

Are you in search of the perfect clothes to emphasize your man’s “very sexy bod” this holiday season? Would you like for them to have cutouts in the shoulder area and perhaps a hand or two around the crotch? Does your guy maybe, just maybe, need a $250 bandeau bra with LED lights on the nipples? If you answered yes to all of these questions, and I know you did, look no further than Yoko Ono’s limited edition “Fashions For Men” collection, now available at Opening Ceremony. The 18-piece line is based on a book of sketches the artist gifted to John Lennon on their wedding day, which she was inspired to create “with love for his hot bod” because her man was “looking so great.”

So if your man’s bod has been looking very sexy lately, you should absolutely, no question, purchase him a pair of $250 Cutout Trousers, complete with a circular sheer mesh panel in the butt area. If you’re trying to stay on the more frugal side of things this Christmas or Hanukah, we think the $75 Butt Hoodie will suffice. Either way, your guy is bound to love whatever you choose from this can’t-be-missed collection. You can both be sure that it will emphasize his hot bod beautifully. [Opening Ceremony via The Cut]

Unlikely Style Icon: Yoko Ono

Look, she may or may not have broken up The Beatles, but one thing is undeniable: Yoko Ono has amazing personal style. When she and John Lennon were together, Yoko’s style killed it. And even now, she doesn’t seem to leave the house without a totally cool hat and jacket combo. But we really covet young Yoko style. Her sunglasses! Her floppy hats! Her all-black (and all-white) ensembles! After the jump, we give you our take on Yoko’s sleek, one-of-a-kind look. Keep reading »

No One Rocks A Fedora Like Yoko Ono

Fedoras have made such a comeback recently that they’re now normal, as opposed to trendy. But few celebrities or style geeks have mastered the swagger of a fedora like Yoko Ono. I love how she’s giving someone not pictured in the photo the side-eye that’s framed by the brim of her hat and sunglasses. That’s a “Bitch, say what?” look if I ever saw one. [NYC, 12/22/10] Keep reading »

Yoko Ono Opens Up About John Lennon’s Death

Thirty years ago on December 8, John Lennon was killed outside his home in New York City. In the January 2011 issue of Esquire — the “Meaning of Life” issue — Yoko Ono, his widower, reveals what she’s learned since his murder.

She opens up about John’s “negativity,” her friend Jackie O, her son Sean being biracial, and even her experience of widowhood, telling Esquire, “I started to see what a test it is to be a widow in this society.” After the jump, five things from her Esquire interview that you may not know about Yoko Ono.

Yoko Ono Could Have Been Lady Gaga

“[Warhol] said, ‘Yoko, you should be doing like this and that. He was actually predicting something like Lady Gaga, you know, the costumes and all that. He said, ‘You should do that.’ But I said, ‘Well I’m an activist and I’m not going to do that.’ I was in a different mood then. What she’s doing is beautiful … I don’t think I would like to be too near a meat dress.”

Yoko Ono on how Andy Warhol urged to her dress like Lady Gaga back in the day. Somehow I just can’t picture Yoko in a dress made out of Kermit the Frogs, but good call, Warhol. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Yoko Ono Will Write Her Memoir Before 2015

The thing I remember most about my lame boyfriend from sophomore year of college was his seething hatred of Yoko Ono. According to my ex, the Beatles were the most brilliant band in the world and they only broke up because some hussy brainwashed John Lennon. I just ignored that quirk in his personality at the time. Eventually, though, I realized the Frothing At The Mouth To Blame Yoko For Everything Wrong In The World bandwagon is cuh-razy! (Read Can’t Buy Me Love by Jonathan Gould if you don’t believe me.)
