The fact that Paul McCartney even wanted to go to Tyga’s Grammy afterparty feels like some kind of news. Did he just want to tell the young rapper how much he loved “Rack City”? Was he hoping to spot a Kardashian? Is he angling to produce another rap album after Kanye West took all of his songs off of the Life Of Pablo? The world may never know. The world, however, does know this: Security stopped McCartney and Beck and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins from entering the party, and TMZ caught it all on camera. The group actually tried twice to get in, and they got rejected both times. In the video, you can hear McCartney saying, “How VIP do we gotta get? We need another hit.” Watch it below.
TMZ also caught video of both Tyga and Bow Wow learning that McCartney got rejected. Tyga ignored it, and Bow Wow, somewhat hilariously, attempted to rationalize it.
McCartney did end up getting into a different Grammy afterparty, and he also has more money in his pocket this morning than you will ever earn in your life, so don’t feel too bad for him.
