Sir Mick Jagger refuses to party all the time because he enjoys focusing on work
Sir Mick Jagger limits his fun.
The 66-year-old Rolling Stones singer - renowned for his hellraising behavior in his youth - makes sure he gets the balance between work and enjoyment right in his life, but still indulges his wild side on occasions.
He said: "You can't give into temptation all your life, otherwise you'd have no through line; you'd never get anything finished. But it's absolutely no fun at all unless you give into temptation some of your life. If you never do, you're really boring and dull."
Jagger - who has seven children by four different women - also says spending a lot of time in hotels has given him the inspiration to make his homes colourful and exciting.
He added to Britain's Vogue magazine: "Hotel life has influenced my decorative tastes quite negatively. Because you say, 'Right, I don't want any brown or beige.' Because most hotels go in for neutral colours - they don't want to offend anybody."
