Mick Jagger may hail from merry old England, but in this photo from the set of Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera‘s “Moves Like Jagger” video, it looks like the two The Voice judges will be repping for the USA. Okay, maybe director Jonas Akerlund has his locations mixed up, but the fashions suggest he nailed the time period. Still, one big detail is missing: Where’s Mick??!?
The legendary rocker is reportedly set to make a cameo in the video, but was nowhere to be found in this pic Aguilera tweeted on Saturday (July 9). In it, the singer is posed seductively in a floppy hat and tall boots, in front of an American flag and what looks like retro-styled backup dancers. Yes, we’re talking about that girl in the white high-waisted goucho pants and John Lennon shades. That’s a look verrrry specific to the Rolling Stones’ 1970s heyday.
After the shoot wrapped, Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine tweeted that the video will be “outrageous and amazing.” So, just like the song, then. “Moves Like Jagger” certainly doesn’t feel retro at all, featuring a throbbing club beat, one of Maroon 5′s trademark jangling guitar jams and, of course, Xtina’s golden pipes.
