McCartney Weds in Ireland

Ringo, George Martin among attendees at today's ceremony

June 11, 2002 12:00 AM ET

Paul McCartney married Heather Mills today at a castle in rural Glaslough, Ireland. The marriage is the second for both the fifty-nine-year-old former Beatle, whose wife of twenty-nine years Linda died in 1998, and Mills, a thirty-four-year-old former model.

The ceremony took place at 4:00 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time (11:00 a.m. ET), and bells ringing inside the Protestant chapel on the castle grounds at 5:20 announced that vows had been exchanged.

The couple met in 1999 at a charity function hosted by Mills, who lost a leg in a motorcycle accident and now raises money for children disabled in war, and became engaged in 2001.

Three hundred family members and friends -- including fellow former Beatle Ringo Starr, the band's producer Sir George Martin, Eric Clapton, Elton John and David Gilmour -- attended the nuptials.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
