Mick Jagger Says Harry Styles "Doesn’t Have a Voice Like Mine"

Mick Jagger has a request for fans: stop comparing him to Harry Styles.

The legendary rockstar has endured a number of Harry Styles comparisons since Styles's come up from his One Direction days. Back then, fans frequently touted the freakish resemblance between Harry and a young Mick. Right after he went solo, there was even a 2017 SNL skit with Harry impersonating the icon.

Comparisons have increased in recent years with Harry Styles ascending to international style icon during his solo career, something Mick Jagger has always been known for. The two have faced comparison for their wardrobes and image as well as stage presence. Unless, of course, if you're the Rolling Stones frontman. Despite having an "easy relationship" with Styles, he says, he doesn't see it.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, Mick opened up, saying, “I mean, I used to wear a lot more eye make-up than him. Come on, I was much more androgynous. He doesn’t have a voice like mine or move on stage like me."

On that note, it's hard to tell what's harsher, the comments themselves or the fact that he said them so matter-of -factly. But, though these comments do carry a similar ring to Naomi Campbell's legendary "don't compare yourself to me" moment, it seems Mick may have meant no harm at all. "He just has a superficial resemblance to my younger self which is fine—he can’t help that,” he continued in the same interview.

Jagger's comments come just after Styles dropped his third solo album, Harry's House, which can be argued to carry heavy influence from many of his musical predecessors, including the likes of Jagger and the Rolling Stones. The album was reviewed by Esquire's Madison Vain who called it "an ode to the ordinary told through glinting '80s pop."

Styles is set to carry out a set of tour dates in coming months for the promotion of his newest album. The Stones too are set to tour in the coming months, with a few dates set for the UK and Europe later this year.
