Paul McCartney: Frog Man

In 2004, Sir Paul McCartney, a vegan and outspoken animal rights activist, confessed that his production of a series of animated films (including Tropic Island Hum, Tuesday, and Rupert and the Frog Song) was motivated in part by childhood guilt. "When I was a kid and I remember thinking as I would have to go into the Army," he explained, "cruelty to frogs seemed justified as a practice for the Army.

"Obviously, now this is something I regret and who knows, I may be trying to make it up to the little dears by putting them in every single one of these films.

"I love them now and I apologise to the children of the ones I abused as a kid. Secret revelations of a frog molester..."

[The SmokingGun.com earlier revealed that Paul McCartney demanded 24 bars of Ivory soap (which contains animal fats) at each show. moreover, Paul's wife, Heather Mills, modeled for a clothing line which featured leather jackets and skirts. And in 2002, Paul's daughter Stella McCartney, a staunch vegetarian, opened her flagship store in New York City -- in the city's meatpacking district!]
