The Word: Mick Jagger shot down by Angelina Jolie?

Mick Jagger

You can add Mick Jagger to the long list of people bewitched by Angelina Jolie. In a new biography, “Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger,” Christopher Anderson claims the Rolling Stones frontman became obsessed with Jolie after she played a sullen stripper in the video for their 1997 single “Anybody Seen My Baby.”

Although Jolie was married to Jonny Lee Miller at the time, Anderson claims that Jagger left her countless voicemails during which he was “virtually sobbing” and pursued her for several years. Jolie didn’t return his calls, but her mother “loved Mick for Angie and felt that he could teach her about fame,” according to a family friend.

So why would Jagger waste his time on the one half-naked 22-year-old actress who wouldn’t call him back? “She scares me a little. I like that,” he’s quoted as admitting in the book.

This, mind you, from the man who spent decades waking up on hotel floors next to the hungover ghost of Keith Richards. Angelina, we are, as always, impressed.

Kardashians — they’re a renewable resource

Kourtney Kardashian is doing her part to keep the family business alive. On Sunday, the reality star welcomed a baby girl, Penelope, her second child with longtime boyfriend Scott Disick.

Are we seriously cynical about newborns over here? We are, and we blame Kim: “I am so excited to be an aunt again and can’t wait to spoil little Penelope,” she posted ominously on her blog.

You’ve been warned

We need to say this one quickly, Band-Aid style: Nadya “Octomom” Suleman is in the studio recording a dance track on which she both sings and raps, according to TMZ.

The song, “Get on the Dance Floor,” is set to be released Aug. 1, and is being produced by DJ Mr. Mig and Mike Rizzo — meaning you might actually hear it (they’ve done work for the likes of Britney Spears and Beyonce).

We never thought we’d say this, but we wish Suleman would focus on her porn career.
