    Congrats are in order for British treasure Sir Paul McCartney, the greatest living songwriter. Maca will be one of the latest recipients of France's top cultural honor: The Legion of Honor medal.

    French President Francois Hollande will pin a Legion of Honor medal on the former Beatle at a special ceremony later this month!

    Past recipients include other global cultural icons such as Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford, Robert De Niro, and Lenny Kravitz, the latter of whom received his medal in November of last year.

    This year's honorees include movie studio boss Harvey Weinstein and actress/bombshell Salma Hayek.

    Congrats to Macca on receiving this prestigious honor!
