London: Mick Jagger has revealed that he thinks that being a singer is `intellectually undemanding` and that he once wanted to be a teacher and a journalist.

The 69-year-old said in an interview on BBC Radio 4`s Today programme, that teaching others would have been a `gratifying` alternative to being a rock star, the Daily Express reported.

The `Brown Sugar` singer also said that he had even thought of becoming a journalist.

The rock star explained that everyone wants to do more things in their lives and he wanted the same as he feels that being a rock singer is an intellectually undemanding thing to do.

The father-of-seven confessed that he considered being a dancer too but was put off by the prospect of enduring injuries.

Describing these as a teenager`s thoughts, he explained that they are pointless and he is happy with what he has done.
