Julian Lennon said “such bull” on the alleged feud surrounding him and his brother, Sean.
In his most recent interview with Esquire, Julian Lennon cleared the feud rumors surrounding him and his brother, Sean Lennon. He proved to the public, particularly to the people concerned, that there is no truth in the rumors. He recalled that he even attended the 2021 Get Back premiere night with his younger brother. He also added that during that time, Sean was a bit hesitant to go and explained:
“He felt overwhelming pressure. And I didn’t particularly want to go.
“But he said he felt obligated to go, so because I love him so much I said, ‘Listen, I’m coming with you. We’ll face the demons together.’ And it’s funny because there’s always been, especially in the U.K. press, ‘Lennon Sons Feuding,’ this, that. We’ve never had a fight in our life. It’s such bull.”
Julian did not deny the fact that things weren’t always smooth between him and his family, just like any other family in this world. However, he defended:
“I posted lots of happy pictures of us [Sean and me] doing nothing but smiling, laughing and acting like idiots. This was important for me and for the peace and for family, because there has been friction, no question, in the past between everybody. But we’re all getting a bit older, and as we get older we lose people and we realize now what’s most precious in life.”
The same goes with surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as the band members’ children. Lennon added:
“The love for Sean, and the love for Yoko [Ono], and Stella [McCartney], and Paul, and Mary [McCartney], and Dhani [Harrison] and Zak [Starkey] — it’s a big old, weird family.
“But as they say, families are always a bit screwed up.”
On another matter, Julian said that “Hey Jude” can both feel good or slightly frustrating. Known as a song penned by McCartney for him, during the time that his parents, John and Cynthia Lennon divorced. He said:
“It’s a beautiful sentiment, no question about that, and I’m very thankful — but I’ve also been driven up the wall by it. I love the fact that he wrote a song about me and for Mom, but depending on what side of the bed one woke up on, and where you’re hearing it, it can be a good or a slightly frustrating thing. But in my heart of hearts, there’s not a bad word I could say about it.”
His latest album, Jude, was released in 2022. Speaking of this album, Julian said:
“It just felt like the right title and the right thing, and owning it. It’s about also breaking through any fear and anxiety I used to have about the Beatles, about Dad, about everything.”
