As Gossip Cop reported, Tyga was the main attraction at Hollywood hotspot Argyle Monday night for its Grammy Awards after-party. When McCartney arrived, with Beck and Taylor Hawkins, he was told he couldn’t come in. The Beatle took it in stride, cracking jokes about his fame, and went on with his night.
But footage of the incident caused a stir online, and Kimmel even said on his show, “If this wasn’t on video, I don’t know if I would’ve believed it.” Amusingly, the host then cut to Tyga being denied entry to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” green room, even though others (including someone in a tiger costume) were welcome past the velvet rope. From backstage, Tyga then gave his version of events.
The rapper claimed he had “no knowledge” that McCartney had been at the venue while he was “inside performing,” insiting, “I wish I woulda knew he was outside. I woulda went out there with the mic, brought him in, perform ‘Rack City’ with me.”
Why would I deny @PaulMcCartney stop it. He's a legend 🙏🏾— T-Raww (@Tyga) February 16, 2016
I don't control the door. I had no knowledge SIR PAUL was there. I just performed and left.— T-Raww (@Tyga) February 16, 2016
“Tweet the fire marshal, don’t tweet me,” Tyga said in response to the hate he’s been getting on social media. Kimmel then quipped, “You would think fire codes wouldn’t apply to Beatles. There’s only two of them left.” Asked if he apologized to McCartney, Tyga noted a tweet he sent but admitted the music icon probably didn’t see it.
So he now announced, “I have a show coming up, February 26th at the Nokia Theatre. So, Paul, if you’re watching this, I would love for you to come. I’ll personally walk you in!”
