Katy Perry broke into the music stratosphere with “I Kissed a Girl” in 2007, but for years before that, she toiled and struggled to find fame in Hollywood.
Now 29, the recalls doing backing vocals for some major stars, including Mick Jagger, with whom she had a very interesting encounter a decade ago.
In a recent interview with Australian DJs Ash, Kip & Luttsy, on Nova FM, Perry claimed that Jagger came on to her when she was just 18 years old.
Perry worked with the Rolling Stones rocker on his hit “Old Habits Die Hard,” and she said she even went out to dinner with the now 70-year-old icon.
“I actually went to dinner with [Mick] one time, and he hit on me when I was 18!” she said.
“That was a long time ago," Perry was quick to note, "and he’s been very kind.”
Indeed, the unlikely paid has gone on to collaborate on more music since then. Asked how she turned down the rock god's advances, Perry revealed a tactic:
“You bring a friend and then they do them!” she said. “You sacrifice your friend.”
She's kidding ... hopefully. Jagger's rep, meanwhile, denies the incident.
"Mick Jagger categorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry... Perhaps she is confusing him with someone else," the rep said Thursday.
