The Rolling Stones singer, 69, who is known for hard partying and womanizing, rejected a 1-million-pound deal for writing a tell-all book in 1983, the Daily Star reported.
He also refused to copy band mate Keith Richards, 69, by telling his version of the Stones story.
Talking about the 1983 bid, Jagger told the publication that he found it depressing and boring to ponder upon his past.
He added that they wanted him to talk about all the people close to him and divulge all the secrets, which he didn’t want to do.
