Next time someone tries to convince you that youth is beauty, pull a Bono and tell them that wrinkles are awesome. Especially if they are on the “beautiful face” of Mick Jagger.
Bono confessed to The Mirror that the soon-to-be 70-year-old Jagger is still sexy and he has the good looks of a Russian…ballet dancer?
“Mick looks a bit like [Mikhail] Baryshnikov, like a ballet dancer from a different age,” said Bono. “At the same time he still has a very beautiful face. The wrinkles that run through it now have made it even more beautiful. Why? Because he wears those wrinkles well. I love his wrinkles.”
And it seems, out of the super rich pair of rock stars, Bono is the only one who will be acknowledging Jagger’s well-marinated facade.
“What I like about him as a person is that he always speaks his mind openly and he never talks much about himself,” Bono said. ‘He is not a narcissistic person.”
