Source – MICK Jagger is said to be finally ready to settle down with his 31-year-old girlfriend after famously bedding more than 4,000 women.
The rock ’n’ roll lothario, 75, reportedly wants to be a one-woman man after finding love with ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick – who is the mother of his youngest son.
The Mail on Sunday reports that Mick made a commitment to Melanie when they were in Mustique over Christmas.
“He’s finally ready to settle down and be a one-woman man,” a source told the paper.
This may come as a surprise to some, as the rocker – sometimes referred to as ‘Jagger the Sh***er’ – is infamous for his womanising ways.
He counts Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman, Carla Bruni and Brigitte Bardot among his conquests, not to mention a rumoured fling with David Bowie. …
Melanie reached out after the tragic death of L’Wren Scott, Mick’s partner of 13 years, and their relationship developed. …
Melanie is one of the top ballet dancers in the US and was engaged to Cuban classical dancer José Manuel Carreño up until early 2014.
Call me a hopeless romantic, call me what you will. But this story fills my heart with sweet, gooey, syrupy, high fructose joy. All the world loves a lover. And I choose to be in love with the idea of being in love with the love of these two crazy lovers.
Sure, you can be a cynic about this. You can question Melanie’s timing, getting in touch with Mick before his late girlfriend assumed room temperature and letting him rawdog her. You can presume she’s killing the clock, waiting it out for her cut of her baby’s inheritance of Mick’s Rolling Stones fortune. You can even question his motives and say he’ll be onto the next 31-year-old ballet dancer once she gets past childbearing years or her dancer’s ass starts to droop, whichever comes first. But not me.
I like to think that Angelina, Uma, Carla, Brigette, Bowie and the other 3,995 partners were all just practice. Sometimes in this life you have to bang a lot of women – and in some cases, super talented androgynous men – to find your one true soulmate. Who oftentimes isn’t born until you’re 44. In food terms, sometimes you eat a lot of aged beef before you develop a taste for veal. So congrats to Melanie for finally getting Jagger the Shagger to settle down and become a one woman man in the committed relationship he’s been looking all his life for. I’m sure they’ll have many happy weeks ahead of them.
P.S. The Stones had their first hit in 1964. That was 55 years ago. 4,000 sex partners divided by 55 years is 72 per year or 1.4 per week. Considering a half a century in the public eye as a Rock God/Pop Culture Icon, doesn’t that sound kind of a low total? I’m going to try not to let it destroy my faith in rock stars, but I was expecting more.
