Ringo Starr is a dick.

Allegedly.

catzgba:

I stopped having celebrity role models ever since ringo starr told me to fuck off when I was 11 that experience was very formative I can never trust another beatle

rcktpwr:

did he really

catzgba:

God it really did and Im so pissed because I cant even tell the story because it sounds so everyone got up and clapped

rcktpwr:

you GOTTA tell me this story maude i must know

catzgba:

Well I’m not really used to telling this in text form so I’ll do my best but basically when I was 11 I idolized the beatles and like collected their records and cds, read all their autobiographies, had pics of them hanging ovr my bed and shit… yeah yeah it was a more naive time. But basically since my mom knew I loved them she pulled some of her vegas strings for my birthday and got me into the premiere of the beatles cirque de soleil show. see it, think its kinda lame but too starstruck to care, we get to go to the afterparty and there he is, the man himself, Richard Starky or whateverthefuck…. so naturally I FLIP and go omg ringo youve shaped my young life please can I have a picture w you

And the dude, like. Turns around. And does the most fucking cartoon villain laugh I’ve ever heard in my life. Like, puts his hands over his stomach, takes a deep breath and makes this noise thatd Id describe as Santa Claus mixed with Bowser. And looks me right in my horrified eyes and goes, “No.”

Like, I dont know what to say at this pt. I’m 11, my self esteem was pretty damn low, its not really registering to me that one of my childhood heroes is a fucking DBZ antagonist, instead my first instinct is that I did something wrong or I’m just so damn ugly the very sight of me deeply offended Mr. Starr, so even tho Im starting to cry a bit I awkwardly laugh and apologize for the intrusion. And the dude. He just gives me the smuggest “Yeah, thought so” look ever. And gestures to the other side of the room and goes “fuck off, kid”. Then turns around and resumes his conversation about the finer points of Microsoft paint as a modern art medium or whatever topic I imagine dominates the conversations of such an influential celebrity

But like, and this is the most fake sounding part of it, Julian Lennon (johns son from his first marriage, I think hes a photographer or something) saw all this happen. And like, stands there and comforts me for like 15 minutes. I’m ugly sobbing so loudly at this point, he just like gives me a kiss on my head and says things are gonna be ok. I ask him if I did something wrong. He tells me this happens all the time, the dude just really hates kids and kinda people in general. That raised so many questions for me. Is this a regular occurence? Has he comforted other kids who have had their hearts cruelly ripped out by the menace known as ringo starr, or possibly the other slightly less assholish beatles? Like, he seemed like he was so used to it.

Yeah, I threw out all my beatles shit after that. But thanks julian lennon for stopping me from becoming a supervillain hellbent on destroying the entire nation of britain for good. What a dude. I should check out his photos.

  1. Yeah I believe it, ringo is not a nice person,Paul is friendly,,Julian is an excellent human ,I was hesitant when I seen steve perry in la,but he was very kind ,I would say shy,you never know with a celebrity,but to shoot down a child is being nothing short of a giant asshole,and I am a lifelong beatles fan.

  2. Isn’t ringo famous for responding to every piece of fan mail he has ever received? That fact doesn’t really seem consistent with your story…

  3. Roger Daughtry did something very similar when my husband ask Roger to autograph a microphone. JERK!

  4. Good Lord this is getting a lot of hits. Who’s linking this? Is there some huge groundswell of resentment at Starkey dickishness or something?

  5. HaHa, ya know the Peace Love thing is all good but in reality Ringo seems to have a good heart (if you pass him on the street and he’s alone he will say hello (in my case walking with a friend he said:
    Hello Lads) but he can be pretty rude when he wants (I was once sitting on a little wall in the Roxy parking lot and Ringo opens the door to the club upstairs (on the Rox) and starts beaming at me so I beamed back kind of like : yeah Fuck you too.

    When he noticed I wasn’t paparazzi he walked out to the parking valet for his car. It took about 30 seconds before he was jammed by fans from the Rainbow club next door.

    I almost fell off the little wall I was sitting on listening to his accent in the distance say: No I don’t want to shake your bloody hand!

    The way he was saying it made it sound like the guy wanted him to shake his dick or something.
