Sean Lennon Just Called Stella McCartney “My Sister” on Social Media and I’m Verklempt


This really isn’t an item but Sean Lennon just called Stella McCartney “my sister” on social media, and I am really verklempt. I don’t really know Sean, I’ve talked to him, I’ve seen in my neighborhood. He always seemed like a sweet guy. Stella is one of those great people, just like her mother. A few years ago I was lucky enough to be at a Lincoln Center fundraiser concert and dinner with all the Beatles family and was impressed by close all the kids felt to each other. It was lovely. Dhani Harrison and Julian Lennon, for example, are real mensches. So it’s nice to see this after almost 60 years of the Beatles. All you need is love.
