Yoko Ono:The Rhapsody Interview 2008 (Exclusive)
by Yoko Ono
Released: Jan 2008
Yoko Ono is diminutive in size, but huge in spirit. She is a fearless avatar, who will attempt anything whether it's topping the Billboard Charts as a dance diva in her seventh decade or redefining our concept of space with her art installations. Over the years she has become so much more than John Lennon's still-grieving widowâand hardly anyone ever accuses her of breaking up the Beatles anymore. Ono insists she never looks back, and while that may not be explicitly true, she does have her eye on the future--vowing to live another 50 years. Ono speaks to Rhapsody's Senior Editor Jaan Uhelszki about why Lennon stayed in the Beatles so long, gambling, and how it really did hurt when people called her Dragon Lady.
