The interviewer asked McCartney about Miley Cyrus' controversial performance at the MTV VMAs.  McCartney was not bothered:

"I don't think it was explicit at all.  You couldn't see anything...You look at it and you say, 'What's everyone shouting about?'  She's a young girl, she's like only 20 or something, and she's just having a go.  Someone said to me that the world that people like Miley live in is all noise and they've got to get above the noise.  So they've got to do something."

McCartney was also complimentary of the current state of pop music.  The musician said he was a fan of artists like Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, and Bruno Mars.

"I don't think it was explicit at all. You couldn't see anything," McCartney said. "I watched it as an experiment to check, but you look at it and you say, 'What's everyone shouting about?' She's a young girl - she's like only 20 or something - and she's just having a go. Someone said to me that the world that people like Miley live in is all noise and they've got to get above the noise. So they've got to do something."
