Mick Jagger does Monty Python sketch, fails to be funny

mick jagger

I’ve never thought much of Mick Jagger (other than that he needs to retire now), so I didn’t really expect to think much of his sketch intro for Monty Python’s new live show. Still, I went into things with an open mind and I guess it is vaguely amusing that he pokes fun of “wrinkly old men” and at least tries to make us laugh. Did it work? Nah, but A for effort!

Who here is a Monty Python fan?

Mick Jagger Moves On With 27-Year-Old Girlfriend

Mick Jagger has apparently already moved on from the suicide of girlfriend and designer L’Wren Scott. He was photographed getting cozy with 27-year-old ballet dancer, Melanie Hamrick (above), and according to the U.K.’s Sun, they are dating. The whole thing sounds kind of twisted. Here’s more on the story, from the Daily News:

Jagger, 70, reportedly met his new lover three weeks before the March suicide of his former gal pal, L’Wren Scott. The Rolling Stones front man was introduced to his flexible flame during a trip to Tokyo, where the band performed Feb. 24.

The pair didn’t hook up but remained in touch, according to the Sun. It wasn’t until after Scott, 49, hanged herself in her Manhattan apartment that the couple began canoodling.

“After her death, Melanie reached out and they met in New York as friends,” a source told the newspaper. “There was a spark there and she provided a distraction to the emotional hell he was going through.”

Uh huh. Guess who’s not thrilled? Scott’s sister, Jan Shane. She told the News,

My sister deserves so much more respect than that. It hasn’t even been three months.

I now believe that he was a bigger part of her troubles that no one knew about. I am so hurt to know that she was so sad and hurting inside and felt that she had nowhere to go.

I’m not saying he has to stay in mourning forever and never date again, but really, it hasn’t even been three months. And this woman is 27, which doesn’t help. I guess to quote one of his own songs, he feels, “You gotta walk and don’t look back.”

Here’s a better photo of the Hamrick, from the American Ballet Theatre site:

I think the whole thing is tacky. What do you think?

L’Wren Scott’s death confirmed as suicide

L’Wren Scott – fashion designer, model and longtime lover of Mick Jagger – was found dead in her New York City apartment on Monday morning by her assistant, apparently hanging from a door knob with a scarf around her neck. While it seemed to be pretty cut and dry that her death was a suicide, that has now been confirmed by NYC’s chief medical examiner’s office.

From CNN:

“The manner of death was determined to be suicide,” said Julie Bolcer, a spokeswoman for the office.

Scott’s remains have been claimed, according to Bolcer, though it was not immediately known by whom.

Really, really sad. Even sadder is Mick’s tribute to L’Wren on his website, posted on Tuesday:

I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.

We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves.

She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me.

I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received.

I will never forget her,
Mick

That’s awful. Suicide is a difficult thing to process and understand, especially when someone seemingly “has it all” – just goes to show that money, fame and success aren’t everything. It’s extremely sad that L’Wren was unable to find help or simply no longer had the will to live her life. She’ll be missed by a lot of people.
