Within the collage of photos inside of The Beatles “White Album” there is a very small photo of Paul McCartney naked.
McCartney’s photo was taken in a bathroom and his private parts are carefully hidden behind a pole. The photo stirred up a bit of controversy as his pubic hair is visible.
Even though the photo did not actually show Paul’s penis, the photo was eventually censored in the United States. They did not completely remove the image from the collage but they did try to remove McCartney’s pubic hair with a 1968 version of photoshop. Here’s the censored version.
The White Album does contain the song “Birthday” which was written and sung by Paul McCartney, so Paul was actually singing about his “Birthday Suit“. Here’s a photo taken years later of Paul and Linda McCartney in the same bathroom of his home on Cavendish Avenue.
There was also a naked drawing of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in the same collage that was censored as well. Click below…
