Coldplay's Chris Martin dedicated a version of his band's song 'Fix You' to Mick Jagger in a show in New York City this week after the death of Jagger's long-time girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott. "It's for Mick Jagger", Martin announced ahead of one of Coldplay's most well-known songs.
The fashion community was grief stricken at Scott's sudden death on March 17th last, as was Jagger and the rest of the Rolling Stones, which led to a postponement of the band's Australian tour.
A service for Scott was held in NYC's St Bartholomew's Church, which was attended friends of both Jagger and Scott including Martin Scorcese, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianne Moore and Meg Ryan.
Jagger spoke at the service and reportedly sang a rendition of Bob Dylan's 'Just Like A Woman'.
Jagger's initial statement on his girlfriend's death said: "I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me."
