Jagger told CNN: "I watched a concert of One Direction on the TV the other night... It reminded me very much of our early concerts, when we were pushed around among the audience and we would kind of float.
"They were, like, floating above the audience, and they looked like, really distinctly uncomfortable.
"I remember feeling that same uncomfortable feeling of being pushed around in this very weird place about 50 years ago. It was a very funny moment, because it was very similar to the things we've been through."

He added: "I remember them before they made it and I said, 'Come on, stick with it boys, you can do it'.
"They still want me to come and jam with them I said, 'Yeah, I'll come and play with you anytime'."
