Mick Jagger Gets to Say “Shit” on TV and Sing About Mitt Romney

MAY 21, 2012 – Mick Jagger was on SNL the other night, and is creating a buzz for not only hosting and acting well in hilarious skits, but also ending out the show with the man who can make a guitar talk, Jeff Beck and his band. Playing without a pick, Jeff Beck played an awesome 12-bar blues number and had Sir Jagger almost ad libbing it seemed on vocals, and not only did Mick get away with singing "shit" in one of the verse (I guess the censor didn't hear it?) but also at one point in the song took somewhat of a jab at Mitt Romney:

Mr. Romney, you know, he's a match, but he always plays a straight affair.
Mr. Romney is a hard workin' man, and he always says his prayers.
But there's one thing about him, don't ever let him cut your hair!

Obama Sings “Sweet Home Chicago” at White House Blues Concert

FEB 22, 2012 – President Barack Obama hosted a blues concert at the White House last night with BB King, Mick Jagger, Buddy Guy and more, and at the end when he was telling everyone goodnight, Buddy Guy told the President, "We were trying to get you to help us sing! Because I heard you singing Al Green, so you done started something, you gotta keep it up now!" Then Mick Jagger offered his mike to Obama. The crowd chanted, "Sing! sing!"

President Obama was hesitant at first, but ended up singing a few lines of the blues classic "Sweet Home Chicago", and just like the Al Green song he sang awhile back, he nailed it. Watch the performance below. The show will air on PBS on February 27, find and check your local PBS listings here.
