Lennon seance tasteless: Yoko Ono
Yoko Ono has slammed a pay-per-view TV seance where a spiritualist attempts to receive communications
Yoko Ono has slammed a pay-per-view TV séance where a spiritualist attempts to receive communications from the spirits of her late husband, ‘Beatles’ band member John Lennon.
Ono’s spokesman Elliot Mintz said that John Lennon chose to speak to people through his music, and that the séance was the misuse of John’s affirmation of life.
“John Lennon was an amazing communicator of heart, mind and spirit. He still speaks to those who choose to listen to his recordings. That was the medium he chose to speak with us. It’s another example of the misuse of John’s affirmation of life as opposed to the preoccupation of his death. (It’s) tasteless, tacky and exploitative,” Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
The controversial new show, which will be available to TV viewers on April 24 this year for $9.95, comes from the producers of The Spirit Of Diana, a televised attempt to contact the spirit of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
