There's this Kesha song being played way too much on the radio, it's about girls going out to the club to have fun and look sexy, and then it has this bit:

Now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger
But we kick ‘em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger

Meaning that Kesha (aka Ke$ha), a 23-year-old cute blonde girl is looking for someone along the lines of this guy, born in 1943:

Don't get me wrong, for a guy who's pushing 70 Mick Jagger still has some sexy edge to him! I'm just so caught off-gaurd by the line that every time the song comes on the radio it makes me head-snap. Jagger, really?

Then again, I might be shocked by the lyrics because I NEVER looked to my parent's music for sexy people. Since there was no beautiful-people-disco-tripe allowed in the house, I grew up listening to an assortment of southern rock bands, folk singers, and anyone who was at Woodstock. I doubt there was never a push to put The Mamas and The Papas on the cover of teen beat, awesome as they were. My parents were Beatles fans but that's the only exception I can think of. When I think of that era, I just don't think of "check out this guy at the club". At all.

And something tells me that your average early 20s club kid today would not really want to be approached by anyone who looks like Mick Jagger. Just a hunch.

Oddly enough, my 21 year old son wondered the same thing. We were lazily watching a repeat of the George Lopez show and she was on. It was the first time I was exposed to her, but he said vehemently when she came out that he hated her. Then, out of all the nonsense in the song he zeroes in on that line..."Jagger? Really?"

Re: mick jagger
Ke$ha is NOT Mick Jaggers daughter, why dont YOU get your facts right?
Jan. 16th, 2010 05:33 pm (UTC)
Maybe she means a young Mick Jagger? (Although I doubt it.)
Jan. 16th, 2010 08:24 pm (UTC)
None of you could carry Mick's jock. He laughs at you clowns.
Jan. 16th, 2010 08:54 pm (UTC)
too much analysis, engineers can't help themselves I guess, simple explanation its a well known name that rhymes with swagger....lmao

There are waaaay sexier pictures of him!
Jan. 16th, 2010 10:24 pm (UTC)
My bet is that the attempt was a famous name that rhymed with swagger.
Jan. 16th, 2010 10:37 pm (UTC)
My first reaction was "There's no way she wrote a song with that reference". And wikipedia proved me partially correct. The song was co-written by Benny Blanco (born 1988) and Dr. Luke (born 1973) either of whom would be much more likely to be aware of Mick Jagger.

epi_lj was regaling tales of the comments from the kids on the youtube video for the song.

"Who is McJagger?"

Made me laugh.
Jan. 17th, 2010 12:20 pm (UTC)
Maybe the key here is in the way we're inturpreting "looks like" perhaps she dosen't mean "shares a physical resemblence too."

Mick looks like he's got money.

THAT GUY looks like he's got money.

THAT GUY looks (as rich as / like) Mick Jagger. He'll do.
Jan. 17th, 2010 03:06 pm (UTC)
Well, I dont know many other celebrity names that rhyme with "swagger" and maybe she wasn't bright enough to think of another line... :P
Jan. 17th, 2010 03:59 pm (UTC)
Have you seen the video? I think that might be what she was going for.
Jan. 17th, 2010 06:36 pm (UTC)
She was on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien the other night and she was very active on stage. If she, in fact, came up with the line, it's probably due to her wanting to emulate the man - and all that goes with it. I agree, probably what she was going for.

wow, i think you just answered the whole thread. mick jagger was notoriously promiscuis, so if she looks easy as mick jagger, maybe thats the kind of swagger?
Jan. 21st, 2010 03:58 am (UTC)
wondering as well
I've been trying to figure this out, too. Granted, Mick Jagger was very hot many years ago but I doubt that is who most young girls would lust after but I've heard 2 theories: 1) it rhymes; and 2) the idea being if he looks like Mick Jagger he must have money or be a drug dealer.
Jan. 21st, 2010 07:54 pm (UTC)
I actually had this explained to me by my 13 year old daughter. She means "look like" Mick Jagger as in "doing the Jagger" which translates to "owning it."

All of which basically meant: Crazy Charismatic and Confident.
Feb. 15th, 2010 06:53 am (UTC)
Kesha is Mick Jagger's daughter.
Feb. 15th, 2010 07:36 pm (UTC)
Ke$ha is definatly Mick Jagger's daughter. They look alike. She probably put this in the song to make it rhyme and so people could find out that she is his daugter.
Feb. 16th, 2010 07:05 am (UTC)
No u dummies, jagger is known to be great in bed haha wow can't believe no one got it........ But I am still disturbed that she sings about her father this way.... :/
Feb. 18th, 2010 01:19 am (UTC)
Wooooooow, Kesha is NOT his daughter!! I don't care what that line means, what girl in her right mind would say she wants a guy who looks like her father?! They're not father and daughter, lol.
Feb. 18th, 2010 03:30 am (UTC)
How would Ke$has know what Mick Jagger looks like?
Feb. 20th, 2010 04:22 am (UTC)
actually he's kasha's dad...wird right? but maybe it flatters him??
Feb. 20th, 2010 08:34 pm (UTC)
Mick Jagger is Ke$ha's father.
Feb. 24th, 2010 03:11 pm (UTC)
its true.
dont all dads want their daughters to look for a guy like them? isnt that what most girls end up with? maybe she meant "well off like mic jagger"? someone who looks like theyd have money and be a rock star and be happy..?
they are definately daughter and father
Feb. 21st, 2010 05:46 pm (UTC)
Who'd have thought that just putting her name in your post you'd get such, erm, interesting anonymous responses.
Feb. 22nd, 2010 01:04 am (UTC)
Mick Jagger is Keshas dad.
Mick Jagger is Keshas dad.
Feb. 22nd, 2010 09:50 pm (UTC)
she probably doesnt know but yet it rhymes so, why not?
Mar. 3rd, 2010 12:16 am (UTC)
She obviously means a young jagger. I sort of figured that everybody knew that in his day he was considered to have huge sex appeal.
Mar. 29th, 2010 01:48 am (UTC)
esha was born in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles to Pebe Sebert, a singer and songwriter. Her mother, a single parent, looked after infant Kesha onstage while performing.[5] Pebe was struggling financially while supporting Kesha and her older brother, Lagan,[2] at the time and they had to rely on welfare payments and supplemental nutrition assistance to get by.[6] Pebe moved the family to Nashville, Tennessee in 1991 after securing a publishing deal. She often brought Kesha and her brothers, Lagan and Louis, along to recording studios[2] and encouraged Kesha to sing.[6] Pebe also taught Kesha how to write songs[2] and they would often write songs together when she returned home from high school.

Sep. 24th, 2010 03:41 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry. "Google" Mick Jagger? seriously?
Of course she meant when he was young! Too bad not a lot of dudes look like Mick Jagger.
Oct. 21st, 2010 03:14 pm (UTC)
of course kesha's talkin abt mick jagger when he was really young....i just googled him and yaaa he WAS hot when he was young..its not like kesha was talking abt the OLD mcjagger. thts absurd plus gross :p

Kesha's father
Kesha is not Mick Jagger's daughter. Mick has 7 children, their names are Karis, Jade, Elizabeth, James, Georgia, Gabriel, and Lucas. Some people say that Karis goes by Kesha, but this would make Kesha 40 years old, because Karis was born in 1990. Also, Kesha's birthname is Kesha Rose Sebert. It is unknown who her father is, but her mother was Pebe Sebert, whom which Mick never had any contact with. Kesha has no clue who her father is, nor does she want to know, but it is certainly not Mick Jagger. Kesha Rose Sebert also has two brothers Legan and Louis Sebert, neither of them bear any relation to Mick Jagger, nor are any of the Sebert children British, as Mick Jagger is.
