Mick Jagger Makes the Best of Not Being a Teacher


In a clip from a BBC interview to air tomorrow, rock icon Mick Jagger says that while he's "pleased" with his career, there are others that he's wished he could have tried—among them, teaching. "A school teacher would have been very gratifying, I'm sure," he told interviewer John Humphrys. He went on to call being a rock singer "slightly intellectually undemanding."

"But you know, you make the best of it," he explained.

Someone should tell the Rolling Stones lead it's never too late to follow your dreams! Perhaps Dr. Shaquille O'Neal—whose doctorate, as you may recall, is in education—could relay the message.
