Mick Jagger recently shared his opinions on Harry’s style compared to his during an interview for The Sunday Times. According to him, besides a “superficial resemblance,” that Harry “can’t help,” there’s nothing else to compare.

“I mean, I used to wear a lot more eye make-up than him. Come on, I was much more androgynous,” Jagger said. “And 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.”

While Jagger’s comments may have come off a little harsh, he made clear he has a good friendship with Harry, who has listed the 78-year-old as one of his biggest musical inspirations.

“I like Harry — we have an easy relationship,” he clarified.

The Stones are readying to embark on a UK and European tour kicking off June 1 in Madrid. The tour will see the band perform a total of fourteen shows this summer including their first gig in Liverpool in over 50 years.
