Songs with the word “Jagger” in the title are apparently a new trend.

There’s [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Maroon 5[/lastfm]-sMoves Like Jagger and recent X Factor finalist [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cher Lloyd[/lastfm]‘s  much hated, “Swagger Jagger.”

While “Moves Like Jagger” is clearly referencing Mick Jagger (Mick will even appear in the music video), “Swagger Jagger” takes a bit more interpretation to understand.

It turns out “Swagger Jagger” is a poor interpretation of “Swagger Jacker” which is a term to define someone who has stolen your style, or in a sense “jacked your swag.” This makes Cher Lloyd a laughing-stock in some circles but singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lily Allen[/lastfm] has stepped up to defend Lloyd tweeting “‘I quite like Swagger Jagger, well, I like the verses.”
