When stand-up comedian John Mulaney was a writer for Saturday Night Live, he met his fair share of celebrities. Among those that stood out was Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, mainly because according to Mulaney, he wasn't very nice.

"I pitched him a joke and he went, 'NOT FUNNNYYYY!'" says Mulaney. "People say that on the internet but never to your face does a British billionaire in leather pants go 'NOT FUNNYYYY!'"

Mulaney goes on to when he and Jagger were writing lyrics for a song in a sketch, and learned a possibly interesting fact about his songwriting process. "'What rhymes with drink?' And I said, 'Think?' And Mick Jagger said, 'NOOO!' And then I said, 'Sink?' And Mick Jagger said, 'Yeah.' And I was like, motherf**ker is this how you write songs!?'"
