    Paul McCartney's Son James Gets Slammed for Interview: Just How "Excruciating" Was It? Watch Now!

    James McCartney may need to practice his interviewing skills.

    The 35-year-old son of music icon Sir Paul McCartney appeared on the TV show BBC Breakfast to promote his new album Me, and some viewers found it hard to watch.

    So hard, in fact, that people reportedly deemed the entire segment as "excruciating."

    Hosts Bill Turnbull and Susanna Reid did the majority of the talking, attempting to come up with follow-up questions and new topics to discuss in response to McCartney's brief, low-key and at-times deadpan answers (when he didn't just reply with a "mmm").

    "Paul McCartney, who's he?" Turnbull joked after seeing McCartney's name on the credits. "Oh, he's my father," a straight-faced James responded (which is an indicator of McCartney's extremely laid-back style).

    The musician was then asked whether his father was a "friendly critic" of his work and he answered, "Constructive criticism, definitely yeah."

    And that's pretty much how the entire interview went. Not great, but "excruciating"?

    But you don't have to take our word for it. Watch the clip above and let us know what you think.
