John Lennon had a huge ego
In a strange paradox, Lennon was both depressed and full of himself. One of his most controversial remarks happened when he claimed to be more popular than Jesus.
In the interview, Lennon said, “Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that; I’m right and I will be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now. I don’t know which will go first, rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.”
