Mick Jagger 'categorically denies' making a pass at Katy Perry
Pop singer claimed The Rolling Stones frontman tried to seduce her age 18
The US popstar, who released new album 'Prism' last month (October), recently claimed in an interview on Australian radio that she met Jagger while working as a session singer in her early days in the music industry. Perry provided backing vocals on 'Old Habits Die Hard', a collaboration with Eurythmics star David Stewart which featured in the remake of Alfie, starring Jude Law.
Speaking to Nova FM about her experience with Jagger, Perry said: "I actually went to dinner with [Mick] one time, and he hit on me when I was like 18! That was a long time ago, and he’s been very kind." Asked how she declined Jagger, Perry suggested he preferred the company of another woman. "Well you bring a friend and then they do them! You sacrifice your friend!"
However, following the broadcast of the interview, a spokesperson for Mick Jagger has spoken out to officially deny Perry's claims. A statement issued to the press by Jagger reads: "Mick Jagger categorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry. ..Perhaps she is confusing him with someone else."
Katy Perry performed with The Rolling Stones earlier this year when she joined the band in Las Vegas to perform during 'Beast Of Burden' at the Las Vegas MGM Garden Arena.
