Sir Paul McCartney has a lot of "love" for "crazy cat" Kanye West. The Beatles legend worked with the superstar rapper last year on the tracks 'All Day', 'Only One' and 'FourFiveSeconds', which also featured Rihanna, and although he readily admits Kanye is an offbeat character he considers him an "amazing talent" and he has a lot of respect for him.

Discussing his time working with Kanye - who has just finished his latest album The Life of Pablo - Paul said: "Well, you know, he's an amazing talent. He's a crazy cat with it, but I love him. He's very talented. He has a completely different way of working from how I work, so it was very different. It's interesting. Really all I did was just threw a load of ideas at him and then left him to get on with it. And he just gradually sent me these tracks, one of which, All Day, is nominated for a Grammy, Song of the Year kind of thing. And that came from a melody I showed him and a story I told him about this thing. And whereas it was a kind of quite a pretty melody that I'd given him, it came back as sort of an urban anthem riff. "

Paul, 73, admits he did approach his collaborations with Kanye, 38, with some nervousness.

Justin Bieber really loves Hailey Baldwin. The 21-year-old singer has been romantically linked to the 19-year-old model and while the pair have never confirmed a romance, Justin couldn't help gushing over her in a recent interview.

He told American GQ magazine: "She's someone I really love. We spend a lot of time together."

Justin also admitted he has done some dumb things in his past, including wild partying, arrests for driving offences and egging a neighbour's house, but insisted that his song Sorry was about an ex-girlfriend and not an apology for his outrageous antics.

He said: "Everyone when they start growing up realises, 'Man, I did some dumb s**t when I was younger.' It's not just me ... . If I could go back I wouldn't really change much. I think it's all my journey. That stuff made me who I am."

Justin previously revealed he cut out the bad influences in his life once he decided he wanted to change his ways.
