Washington, May 12 (ANI): John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono kept her tears from pouring while speaking about a forthcoming New York exhibition in honour of the late Beatle.

The exhibition, entitled John Lennon: The New York City Years, will feature the singer’s personal possessions public for the first time at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex.

Items like guitars, a posthumous Grammy Award, and the star’s iconic New York City T-shirt are set to go on public display.

And Ono, who held herself together while discussing Lennon’s love for the city in which he was murdered, continues to get upset when the tragedy is mentioned.

“It (the bag) was hard to include. And I thought it might be criticised as well,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

“I know it’s a kind of a sad and very poignant kind of paradox that he loved this place so much and this is where he was killed. I still get affected by it. If it (his death) was a slow a process we could have talked about it or something,” she said. (ANI)a
