Perhaps sounding a bit Bill Clinton-esque who said he “did not have sex with that woman” at the onset of the Monica Lewinski controversy in the 1990s during Clinton’s presidential years, Sir Mick Jagger now asserts that he “did not hit on Katy Perry” – the famed pop singer of “Roar” and “I Kissed a Girl” as well as other top pop hits, according to a Friday report in the BBC.
Jagger, the 70-year-old frontman of the eternally-popular rock band The Rolling Stones – was accused of hitting on or making a pass at Perry who is 29 years old. The pass was allegedly thrown, according to Perry, when she was about 18 years old - making the accusation a rather dated event.
She asserts that Jagger made the pass at her when she was singing back up vocals for Jagger’s “Old Habits Die Hard” in 2004.
Perry made the remarks when she was doing a radio interview in Australia to promote her new album entitled Prism. She also said that she went to dinner once with Jagger.
Jagger was effected enough by the news to respond via an online post in which he said that he categorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry. He suggested that she may have confused him with someone else.
Right. How does anybody confuse anybody with Mick Jagger?
Perry said that the incident was a long time ago and since then he’s been very kind. Perhaps that’s the guy she’s confusing with Jagger? Not sure.
Very Perry-esque, when asked in the interview how someone like Perry could turn down a pass thrown by Jagger, she said that you bring a friend and they do them – you just sacrifice your friend.
