Then (Brian) was with Suki (Poitier). She made him happy, I think. Maybe she was the next best thing to Anita. I think that's what he was so after. She looked like Anita in the earlier days. They looked like sisters... They seemed happy. But I think that was the thing with Brian, losing Anita.

Never married, no children
The worst thing about it all about being with Mick was this rule he laid down that you must NEVER show emotion, in case people realized you weren't cool. Over the months, everything used to get bottled up inside of me... Mick's affairs DID bother me. But that wasn't as bad as the feeling of being pinned against the wall by the whole superstar thing.
I truly didn't want to damage Mick anymore than I had. People always assume I became a junkie while I was still with him but I didn't. It was still an experiment I was making with my eyes open... I did love Mick very much, and he loved me. But I felt that an era was over and nothing could ever be the same again.
The elephant's in the

Throwing all his weight about And I knew what it was leading to
And I'm locked in the bathroom Some things well I can't refuse

I saw her today at the
Oh your love is just sweet addiction
In her glass was a bleeding man I can't clean you out of my veins
She was practiced at the arts of deception It's a life-long addiction
I could tell by her blood-stained hands That has damaged my brain

If I could win you, if I
When I'm riding around the world
A love song so divine And I'm trying to make some girl
Would it be enough for your cheating heart Who tells me, Baby, better come back maybe next week
If I broke down and cried? Cause you see I'm on a losing streak

Did it mean
When you're flying your flags
Was it all in vain? All my confidence sags
Was it just a feeling? You've got me packing my bags...

I think (Bianca)'s
had a bigger negative influence on Mick than anyone would have thought
possible. Mick, Anita and I used to go around an awful lot before he met
Bianca. Mick marrying Bianca stopped certain possibilities of
us writing together because it happens in bursts; it's not a steady thing. It certainly made it a lot more difficult to write together and a lot more difficult to just hang out.
It used to get us down at the office, the way (Mick and Bianca) were always arguing, right from the beginning. They just seemed to want to hurt each other, and there was never a time when they seemed happy. Mick didn't ever seem to us to love her, not the way he had loved Marianne. And she was very difficult.
We are two very strong-willed people. Maybe each of us should have married somebody different, somebody quiet and easygoing... I should tell you Mick is very critical of me. He is always watching me, saying if he thinks I look wrong or something.
People always give me this bit about us being a macho band, and I always ask them to give me examples... Under My Thumb... Yes, but they always say Starfucker, and THAT just happened to be about someone I knew. There's really no reason to have women on tour, unless they've got a job to do. The only other reason is to fuck. Otherwise they get bored... they just sit around and moan. It would be different if they did everything for you, like answer the phones, make the breakfast, look after your clothes and your packing, see if the car was ready, and fuck. Sort of a combination of what Alan Dunn (the Stones' road manager) does and a beautiful chick.

It's hard being with someone like Mick because girls can be so pushy. They have no sort of modesty. They'll throw themselves at him in restaurants, in front of people, and say the most outrageous things.... (A)fter we'd been together for about 5 years, in 1982, he decided to start taking advantage of the way girls are. Our relationship had speeded up so much I think it frightened him. He seemed to want to go back to living the image of the famous rock star...

Have you seen her dressed
I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Seen the sky in front of you? Now you decided to show me the same
And her face is like a sail No sweeping exit or offstage lines
Speck of white so fair and pale Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

It is a game for youth

I'm just waiting on a friend

Oh, yeah, (I'm in love). But I've ALWAYS been in love... It's a big one, it's a big one. Yeah. It doesn't matter, I'll tell you - yeah, I'm in love. Those are the things that, when you're at the other end of the scale, you know, and you think, Oh, godDAMN, you can only be in love when you're 18 or 23 or... But then you get older and suddenly - BANG! One again! And you realize that was all a load of crap. And those are the things that turn you on, youknow? Those are the things that make you look forward, keep you going. You say, well, if it CAN happen, keep on going. I mean, it's the greatest feeling in the world, right?... Love wears a shite Stetson.

Anita and I, in the 60s, were never interested in marriage. It seemed an archaic and dumb thing to do just to have a child... And Patti and I have a different relationship... And If I'm gonna try anything once, it's gonna be with this chick.

I find it quite easy to detach myself from Mick's private life, but then it's ludicrous because it's not private at all. I sometimes see what the old bugger wants in life, he's intent on being Casanova or Don Juan. He's always looking for it, which is a little cruel on his loved ones. But he's always been like that. I don't talk to Mick about his love life, because it's like Whoops! You've skidded on another banana skin!
(L'Wren) is very independent and would not take any nonsense from anyone no matter how famous they were. She usually knows what she wants and she gets it. It doesn't surprise me at all that she's tamed him. She is very much her own woman and it would be my guess that is why this Mick Jagger likes her.
Scott, companion of Mick Jagger (2001-present)
Never married, no children
Oh, give me a break. I mean, really, this propaganda about women that's been done against me... I can't bear... I can cook perfectly well myself and I don't need to go home. I mean I can go out and eat somewhere around the corner, probably better than I can eat at home... (I don't need a person to take care of me.) Not at all. I suppose I did have it years ago. Maybe 8, 9, 10 years ago... I thought I did, or would, or ought to, or something but I don't have it anymore... Of course I get lonely. But I don't want a relationship with a woman where I'm in "charge" and I expect fidelity and all that. I never require that of anyone and I don't want it required of me...
