Being a rock star is intellectually undemanding, says Mick Jagger

London, June 29 (ANI): Mick Jagger has revealed that he thinks that being a singer is 'intellectually undemanding' and that he once wanted to be a teacher and a journalist.

The 69-year-old said in an interview on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, that teaching others would have been a 'gratifying' alternative to being a rock star, the Daily Express reported.

The 'Brown Sugar' singer also said that he had even thought of becoming a journalist.

The rock star explained that everyone wants to do more things in their lives and he wanted the same as he feels that being a rock singer is an intellectually undemanding thing to do.

The father-of-seven confessed that he considered being a dancer too but was put off by the prospect of enduring injuries.

Describing these as a teenager's thoughts, he explained that they are pointless and he is happy with what he has done. (ANI)
