Mick Jagger Says Harry Styles Has ‘Superficial Resemblance’ To Him

Published At: 23 May 2022 , 09:06 AM

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has spoken to The Sunday Times over the weekend, stating that he considers the comparisons between him and Styles have been superficial.

The comparisons have been present across the pop star's entire career, constantly compared to Jagger's signature swagger. Styles was also rumoured to play Jagger in a biopic of his life.

"I like Harry — we have an easy relationship,” Jagger said.

“I mean, I used to wear a lot more eye make-up than him. Come on, I was much more androgynous. And he doesn’t have a voice like mine or move on stage like me; he just has a superficial resemblance to my younger self, which is fine — he can’t help that.”

In the interview, Jagger also describes the emotions he felt following the loss of Charlie Watts. The longtime drummer of the Stones passed away at 80 years old mid last year.

In the interview he reflected, "I don’t really expect him to be there any more if I turn round during a show. But I do think about him. Not only during rehearsals or on stage, but in other ways too.

“I would have phoned him up and talked about last night’s Arsenal game because he supported Tottenham and I’m Arsenal. I miss him as a player and as a friend.

“In the show, when we come to the front and bow at the end, there’s no Charlie. He’d always be the last one down. I’d go: ‘Come on, what have you got to do?’ He’d be fiddling with his sticks because he always had to have them in a row before he’d get off the seat.”
