Mick Jagger may play a media mogul in Tabloid, a new film he is developing through his Jagged Films production company. The movie, which is being penned by A History of Violence screenwriter Josh Olson based on an idea by Jagger, will tell the story of a Rupert Murdoch-like mogul and a young journalist who is brought into the inner circle of his immoral media empire.

Tabloid would be Jagger's first starring role in a movie since he appeared in The Man from Elysian Fields with Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies back in 2001. The Rolling Stones frontman has starred in a handful of pictures over the course of his career, most notably as a former rocker in the 1970 movie Performance.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
