Mick Jagger, Rock Icon, Closet Conservative

The Rolling Stones came of age during the Flower Power movement of the 1960s, a time when questioning authority was the order of the day.

Now, lead singer Mick Jagger tells a British publication that his politics don’t align with that era’s progressive bent. He even shared his disgust over the reaction to Margaret Thatcher’s death in England earlier this year. 

In a frank interview with Q Magazine, the 69-year-old appears to have revealed that he is a closet Conservative after decades of refusing to publicly disclose his political allegiances.

The Rolling Stones frontman, who was knighted in 2002, admitted having at least two one-to-one meetings with Lady Thatcher in the 1980s, and also revealed he was left stunned by the negative reaction to the former prime minister’s death this year.
