VIDEO: Paul McCartney says he invented the selfie

Sir Paul McCartney is a Beatle. He's one of the few living gods of the music industry. He's spent his entire life helping the world refine its cultural palate with gorgeous music, including his most recent single, "New".

So, with his innumerable contributions to the improvement of modern society, we'll all have to overlook the fact that The Beatle is now claiming to have invented the selfie. On Monday, McCartney made an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, during which he explained the origin of the ritual.

We'll let it slide just this once, Sir Paul.
