It's not the womanizing ways people take issue with. wink


Of course not. What I meant was that while Jagger has/had a certain feminine edge to his stage antics, most people knew he was banging model after model. When a petite little man very few have even heard of, dressed in bikini briefs, lace & a trenchcoat prances about onstage, & sings about "Head" things are different.

Naw, I don't think so. Even without Angie Bowie's horrid book, it'd been a poorly kept secret that not all of Mick's conquests were women. The list of dudes he's supposed to have knocked boots with is pretty extensive, even if you don't include the Starman. Hell, even if it's not true and Jagger does only sleep with the so-called fairer sex, the rumours were rampant enough to be "true" in a lot of peoples minds.

So if Prince were being booed for assumptions of homo-ness, then so should have Mick. If that was indeed one of the reasons for the audience's reaction to Our Hero, then I don't thik I'd be wrong in calling them hypocrites.

Jagger's trisexuality was no secret, but the women he bagged got the attention of most. The Stones also played balls out rock & roll, not R&B trifles like I Feel For You. It's no different than going to a show of theirs today & having to sit through Kayne West.
