After months of using his lawyers and spokespeople to comment for him, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney has finally spoken up for himself.
According to E! Online, the legendary musician briefly talked about his increasingly messy divorce from Heather Mills McCartney at a press conference this week.
When asked about the break-up, Paul said he was “okay” and “doing fine,” though he didn’t get into specifics.
“Life beats you down occasionally,” he said. “But I am the eternal optimist. No matter how rough it gets, there’s always light somewhere. The rest of the sky may be cloudy, but that little bit of blue draws me on.”
McCartney also revealed that he is using music to keep his spirits up.
“It’s something I love to do,” he said. “It’s something that sustains me. So I’m enjoying it, finishing this project off and also the next one.”
The London press conference was help to bring attention to McCartney’s new LP of classical music, “Ecce Cor Meum (Behold My Heart).”
The disc hits stores on Tuesday.
