Joss Stone is trying to persuade Sir Mick Jagger to perform with her at next year's Olympics.

The singer - whose latest project SuperHeavy features the Rolling Stones legend as well as Dave Stewart, Damian Marley and A R Rahman - is keen for them to play together during the opening ceremony of the London Games as she thinks it will be the ideal venue.

She said: "It's an exciting project but it is so hard to get everybody together in one place. But the Olympics would be great, the perfect idea. I'll ask him."

Mick recently revealed while he loves working with Joss, he finds the 'Fell In Love With A Boy' hitmaker "annoying" because she never stops singing.

He said: "She sings all the time, even when she's speaking. She's very funny, but can be slightly annoying after a while, and I have to tell her to shut up, 'Shut up Joss'.

"I do boss the others, but in a way that they don't even know because I'm being so nice. But they also tell me to sod off and be quiet as well so it works both ways, you have to be ready for that."

The Rolling Stones

The legendary rockers, fronted by Mick Jagger, perform their recognisable hits from across the decades including Satisfaction, Paint It Black and Brown Sugar, as well as some surprises thrown in for good measure. Special guests in London on their No Filter tour include Liam Gallagher on Tuesday and Florence + The Machine…
