Mick Jagger disses Harry Styles comparison: 'A superficial resemblance to my younger self'

·1 min read

Harry Styles doesn't have the moves like Jagger – according to the man himself.

Rock legend Mick Jagger took issue with the comparison of himself to Styles, the pop singer-songwriter whose musical ascension with chart-topping hits is garnering elite comparisons. Styles' third studio album, "Harry's House," dropped last week and is expected to be No. 1.

The 78-year-old Jagger, one of the founding members of the Rolling Stones, told The Sunday Times that while he enjoys Styles' artistry, the comparisons of the two English musicians is far off.

"I mean, I used to wear a lot more eye make-up than him," Jagger told the publication. "Come on, I was much more androgynous. ...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."

Styles has stated in past interviews he looked up to Jagger and has drawn inspiration from him as a fan. He impersonated the rock star in 2019 on "Saturday Night Live."

USA TODAY reached out to reps for Styles and Jagger for comment but did not immediately hear back.
