Mick Jagger’s shout-out to President Obama and NSA


“I don’t think President Obama is here tonight, but I’m sure he’s listening in.”

— Mick Jagger making his first public comments about the NSA surveillance controversy (see video, below) early in the Rolling Stones’ Verizon Center concert Monday night. Such a cheeky lad! No, don’t think President Obama was there, but VIPs spotted in the arena included Lenny Kravitz, the guys from One Direction, and Lynda Carter. Check out Chris Richards’ review of the show, which “felt like a blend of ritual, compulsion and instinct that only a 50-year-old band is capable of summoning. There were some rough edges, but the Rolling Stones’ magic has always emanated from rough edges.”: Rolling Stones concert review: 50 years on, Mick and the boys still have our number
