Taylor Momsen wants you to know she was a bad-girl rocker while upstart Miley Cyrus was still singing nursery songs on “Hannah Montana.” She burns up Maxim magazine with some naughty bathroom play.

As soon as the new Paul McCartney single, “New,” broke, I listened to it straight away. At 71, McCartney is pushing it more than ever: world tours, videos, re-mastered early works; rather amazing I’d say. As big as The Beatles became, they are just a chapter in his long storied career.
