Brazilian TV station dubs Stones frontman 'the biggest jinx in history' after he attended the match
Mick Jagger has been blamed by a Brazilian TV station for Brazils record-breaking 7-1 World Cup semi-final defeat by Germany yesterday (July 8).
Jagger has endured a six-game losing streak at the World Cup since 2010, by publicly endorsing countries who promptly lose. It even led to Brazil fans dressing cut-outs of The Rolling Stones singer in the colours of Chile and Colombia before their victories over those countries. But they lost when Jagger and his son Lucas attended the Germany game in Belo Horizonte.
Jagger has been dubbed "The Angel Of Doom" by upset Brazilians, while TV station R7 called him the biggest jinx in history following the 7-1 thrashing, which was both Brazils biggest-ever defeat and the heaviest loss in a World Cup semi-final in the tournaments 84-year history.
The run of bad luck began at the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, when Jagger watched Englands 4-1 second round defeat by Germany. He went with Bill Clinton to see the USA lose 2-1 to Ghana in the same round, before wearing a Brazil shirt during their 2-1 loss to the Netherlands in the quarter-final.
At the current World Cup, Jagger tweeted the England team a good luck message before they lost 2-1 to Italy, then announced during a Rolling Stones gig in Lisbon that Portugal would win the tournament. Portugal failed to reach the second round, as did Italy after Jagger said at a Stones show in Rome that Italy would win their vital group game against Uruguay. Italy lost 1-0.
Although Jagger wore a neutrals England baseball cap during the semi-final, his 15-year-old son Lucas is Brazilian. Fans had carried a cut-out of Jagger in a Germany kit with a speech bubble saying Lets go, Germany! outside the stadium.
Lucas mother, Brazilian model Luciana Giminez, defended Jagger, saying: Hes suffering cyber-bullying, and Id ask people to think before doing it. Hes been successful for 50 years and is a good friend and father to my son.
Mick jagger played goalie?
Lots of superstitions exist in Catholic countries.
Everthing bad is due to global warming, Bush, the sequester, and Jews. I’ve heard it for years.
No its not Micks fault....their asses sucked.
Poor Mick can’t get no satisfaction.
Repeat after me..
Their asses sucked.
A lot of people need to get a life.
Expect a flood of Brazilian refusees to hit the border next week. They’re pissed. The U.S. Boarder Patrol better stock up on Huggies.
I blame Mick Jagger for a lot of things, and... What the hell. I’ll blame him for this, too.
Messi and company couldn't score against the Netherlands. The German defense is just as good, and they have more offensive horsepower than NL (or Argentina).
But then they LOST to Ghana, and only beat us by a goal... I guess the difference now is that they are gelling as a team.
Get off of my cloud!
must be democrats ... or muslims ... or both
Pretty sure they tied Ghana.
Oh yeah... Still, it was Ghana.
