Mick Jagger has brushed off comparisons to Harry Styles.
The Rolling Stones frontman spoke to The Sunday Times and addressed comments about the resemblance between him and the As It Was singer.
The rocker noted that he liked the former One Direction star and they have “an easy relationship”, but insisted the similarities with their androgynous sense of style and stage presence are “superficial”.
“I mean, I used to wear a lot more eye makeup than him,” Mick said. “Come on, I was much more androgynous.”
He added, “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.”
Harry impersonated Mick for a Saturday Night Live skit in 2017. When asked about going solo, he joked in character, “Solo? Uh, why would anyone in a successful band go solo? That’s insane,” referencing Harry’s own break from One Direction.
