California-Sir Mick Jagger has issued a statement denying Katy Perry’s claims that he made a pass at her when she was 18.  Perry made the comments during an interview on Australian radio this week, while promoting new album Prism. She said the incident took place when she sang backing vocals for Sir Mick’s 2004 song Old Habits Die Hard. But a statement from the 70-year-old Rolling Stones frontman said he “categorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry”. It continued: “Perhaps she is confusing him with someone else.’’ Perry, 29, told her interviewer, “I actually went to dinner with him one time and he hit on me one time when I was like 18.
