    London (ANI): Musician Paul McCartney has likened reality television to a car accident as both invoke compulsive viewing. The 'Hey Jude' hitmaker admitted that he himself watches it.

    "I'm not very keen on it. I watch it like everybody. It's compulsive viewing but so is a traffic accident," The Telegraph quoted McCartney, as saying. The ex-Beatle said shows like the x factor don't actually 'encourage' musical creativity. "I think there is too much of it. You can't turn on the telly without somebody being judged by four people, whether they are on ice, or on the stage or in the jungle," he added.

    The 66-year-old musician was not reluctant to reveal that reality shows emphasize more on the drama than actually producing great talent. "I don't think you are going to get a Bob Dylan emerging from those shows, but then not everyone goes on those shows. I think it's just a phase we are going through," McCartney said.
