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?"

Maybe she means a young Mick Jagger? (Although I doubt it.)

None of you could carry Mick's jock. He laughs at you clowns.

There are waaaay sexier pictures of him!

My bet is that the attempt was a famous name that rhymed with swagger.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Kesha is Mick Jagger's daughter.
