Do You Care That Mick Jagger Said ‘Sh*t’ in His ‘SNL’ Election Blues Song?
Mick Jagger, the legendary frontman of the Rolling Stones, hosted ‘Saturday Night Live‘ this weekend, which was a significant episode for many of the cast members. Saturday marked the show’s 37th season finale, Kristen Wiig’s final night on ‘SNL,’ and the moment when Jagger said (or should we say, sang?) “sh*t” uncensored.
“The Blues talk about what’s on people’s minds,” he said, and what’s on his mind was the 2012 presidential election.
In case you didn’t catch that slip in the video above, Mick Jagger’s advice to the frontrunners about “strategizing a bit” or they’ll end up in the “sh*t” was what caught viewers off guard. Good advice?
The funny thing is that most people don’t seem too bothered by this, which, if that’s the case, makes this episode another landmark moment — when America finally became cool with cussing on network television. Though it wasn’t as worse as when Kristen Wiig donned her Gilly wig and told Sofia Vergara to… well, see for yourself.
