Rocker SIR Mick Jagger and actor Warren Beatty have been ruled out as the inspiration for Carly Simon's hit single YOU'RE SO VAIN.

The singer/songwriter has romanced both men but insists neither is the elusive person behind the 30-year-old classic.

And she is reluctant to ever reveal the self-obsessed character who prompted her to musically vent her anger, insisting the enduring speculation keeps her entertained.

She says, "I'm amused by the interest in that song.

"There's one obvious answer that nobody has yet come up with, so it just goes on.

"But I know revealing his identity would be somewhat of an anti-climax."
