Heather Mills: Philosophically speaking

When Heather Mills speaks about ex-husband Paul McCartney as though he’s just one more human on this planet, she readily gets accused of slamming him.

Yet philosophically (and every other which way), she’s certainly got some valid points.  For example, Mills recently expressed frustration at being continually linked to McCartney rather than being appreciated for her own considerable talents.

E! Online reports that Mills described McCartney in these down-to-earth terms:  This is just someone I fell in love with who to me was a normal guy that happened to write a few cool songs in the 60s and a few in the 70s…

Those who tend to idolize McCartney (and celebrities in general) might be aghast at her assessment of Sir Paul.  Just a ‘normal guy,’ why how could she possibly even think that about a Beatle?

And yet, being the wife of an icon (be it McCartney, Gandhi, Pete Seeger, Abe Lincoln, FDR, JFK…) is not all that enviable a role.  There is a long list of “little women behind big men” who got to experience the not-so-superhero aspects of their respective spouses.

So if Mills prefers to move on from the past in order to better focus upon her present gifts to the world (such as owning this planet’s “biggest vegan company”), who (with no ax to grind) can really blame her?
