Twelve-year-old Alyssa Snyder (back row, left, in photo) at least knew who Mick Jagger was.

“Well, I know he is from the Rolling Stones, and I heard he is Ke$ha’s dad,” Alyssa explained.

(Durham:)  “Really — is that the rumor?”

(Alyssa:)  “Yep.”

Milan, 9 (middle row, right), says, “I heard of him before.”

(Durham:)  “So when you sing the Ke$sha song, do you know what he looks like?”

(Milan:)  “Yes, my grandmom has a couple of CDs.”

Sean, 9 (middle row, second from right), on the other hand, says, “Well, I asked if Jagger was a person or a thing.”

(Durham: )  “What did your dad say?”

(Sean:)  “He said he was a person.”
