Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger might want to stick to music. Every World Cup team the singer has endorsed this year has lost, prompting Brazilian soccer fans to wage a social media campaign for Jagger to support their team’s upcoming opponents.
During a performance in Lisbon this May, Jagger prophesied to his crowd of adoring fans that Portugal would win the country’s first World Cup. Portugal currently has just a single point in Group G.
Shortly after Jagger Tweeted support for his home country, England lost against Uruguay.
The singer’s unlucky prediction streak continued yesterday, when Italy suffered elimination. Jagger had declared victory for the Italians at a concert in Rome on Saturday.
Brazilian fans thus appear pretty wise for trying to manipulate the “Jagger Curse” to their advantage.
Hey Mick, could you do the U.S. a favor and send some positive vibes to Germany, please?
