It seems ageism is somewhat less of a problem for white male rock stars…
From the Telegraph
The Rolling Stones frontman, known for his pouting lips and energetic performances, officially becomes a pensioner today when he turns 65.
Once famed for his wild party antics, it seems Sir Mick may have toned down his ways and is thought to be planning a quiet celebration at home with family and friends.
Age, it seems, is also no barrier when it comes to dating some of the world’s most glamorous women.
Sir Mick is dating model L’Wren Scott, who is more than two decades his junior.
During his life he has been linked to a string of women, including Marianne Faithfull and Carla Bruni, now the wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Once known as the bad boy of rock’n’roll, Jagger was born in Dartford in the south of England on July 26, 1943, the son of a school games teacher and a hairdresser. He grew up in suburban England.
He attended the London School of Economics, but never completed his course, leaving to pursue his musical dreams.
Sir Mick has been reaping the financial rewards of the band’s highly-successful A Bigger Bang tour.
While the band continues to wow audiences, its members’ offstage performances continue to make headlines.
Fellow Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood recently entered rehab after being pictured with a Russian cocktail waitress.
