I’ve wondered it. You’ve wondered it.
How come ugly rock stars get so many women?
I mean, look at Mick Jagger: insanely talented, he’s got charisma out the ass but…not the best looking guy. Same thing for Gene Simmons and even Steven Tyler. Not the most handsome men, but they manage to pull in lots and lots of women.
Turns out there’s a scientific reason for it. You can read it all here, but basically what that says is that guys who are more creative but maybe less attractive are seen just as attractive as good looking fellas who aren’t creative. It goes back to evolutionary biology, where being creative is seen as a trait that makes you better suited for survival.
Though I mean, being rock stars and making millions of dollars doesn’t hurt. But there’s some science behind it too.
