Yoko Ono has taken to commenting on her thoughts on being known as the one responsible for the breakup of The Beatles. In an article with Interview Magazine, Ono spoke out about being vilified by Beatles fans around the world.
In the article, the widow of John Lennon says she should not be blamed for the breakup of the iconic rock band, and that doing so can be compared to committing a very heinous offense.
Ono said, “Not being appreciated for 40 years or something … It feels like I was accused of something that I didn’t do, which was breaking up The Beatles. That was like being somebody who is in prison without having done anything wrong. It’s like you’re accused of murder and you’re in prison and you can’t get out.”
Making what may possibly be the most controversial Beatles-related statement since John Lennon’s famous “The Beatles are bigger than Jesus” quote, Ono says she is making the most of this stress and has learned to take it all in stride.
“That’s why I finally came to the conclusion to use that big energy of hatred that was coming to me and turn it around into love.”
