Default Celebrity Beatles Fans

Lotsa famous people admit to digging the Fab Four. Who have you guys heard about? The ones that surprised me the most were Ozzy Osbourne and Nirvana.

Lessee...

Kevin Spacey (who emcee'd the John Lennon Tribute Concert a couple of years back), J.K. Rowling (which doesn't surprise me AT ALL), Oprah Winfrey (who has admitted to a girlhood crush on Paul several times publicly)...

I can probably think of more if I consider this for a while...

Dominic Monaghan (he plays Meriadoc Brandybuck in Lord of the Rings) is a HUGE Beatles fan or so I hear tell.

I thought of someone else...Ricki Lake is apparently a BIG Beatles fan and collects memorabilia...and I remember a few years ago she said that she and her husband were turning their then three-year-old son into a fan too!

I also know that several rappers/hip hop artists have said that they are Beatles fans, but I can't remember who I've heard say that now...one of the hazards of age, lol!

The one that surprised me the most was AJ MacLean from the Backstreet Boys talking about the Beatles in an interview. I think they were talking about the level of fame BSB was getting, and comparing it to Beatlemania and at the time, it shocked me that a boy band would even know who the Beatles were, much less compare their situations. But he turned out to be a bit of a fan, I suspect, because it wasn't the only time he mentioned them.

I also remember a friend of mine going on in my Bio class about how one of the guys from O-Town sang "Come Together" (I think) at the concert that she went to.

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">They're not fans! They think that they ARE the Beatles!

Guy Ritchie (Mr. Madonna) is not a super-fan, but loves the White Album. And this shocked me the most, rapper 'Eve' is a big fan!

I had heard that comparison many times before I saw the interview in which he said it. The thought of a true comparison makes me somewhat sick.
