Paul McCartney doesn’t smoke weed anymore, can do a 5-minute headstand

Cool grandpa Paul McCartney says he’s quit smoking weed in an attempt to be a good example for his kids and grandkids. McCartney, whose dark brown locks prove he must not be that interested in teaching his kids about the value of growing old gracefully, told The Daily Mirror that “instead of smoking a spliff” he’ll “now have a glass of red wine or a nice margarita.” He also says the last time he got high was “a long time ago,” whatever that means.

In the same interview with The Daily Mirror, the longtime vegetarian also said that now, at 72, he’s more interested in staying in shape and eating healthy than he is in getting blazed as fuck. He told the paper that “what’s cool about it is that I’ll be in the gym with all these guys doing really big weights, whilst I’m there doing not big weights, and afterwards, when I’ve done my headstand for about five minutes, these big guys will come up to me and say, ‘That was pretty impressive, man!’”
