Mick Jagger Was Not Katy Perry's Teenage Dream; Fred Durst TV Show in the Works

It's not always enough to know what's "trending." It kind of helps to know why. Welcome to the Social Climber, where we provide a quick primer on the people, places and things that are being feverishly searched and shared online -- and try to make sense of it all.

One thing Mick Jagger and Katy Perry agree on is that there was no "Firework" between them.

In an interview with an Australian radio show this week, Perry, 29, said she sang backup on a Jagger song in 2004.

She also said she had dinner with the rocker, who is 41 years her senior, and that, "he hit on me when I was, like, 18." She added that it was "a long time ago and since then he's been very kind."

Jagger says there's no way Perry is "The One that Got Away." (Okay, Social Climber will stop. The song references are just so easy with Perry!)

"Mick Jagger categorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry," a rep for the Rolling Stone frontman said in a statement to ABC News. "Perhaps she is confusing him with someone else."

Sounds like this "Hot N Cold" relationship is just cold. (Sorry, I had to.)

Guess what, everyone? That Fred Durst TV show you've all been wishing on stars for is finally becoming a reality.

Who's Fred Durst, you ask? He was the frontman of rap metal band Limp Bizkit whose biggest hits were songs called "Rollin'" and "Break Stuff," according to Social Climber's Google search.

The one-hour drama being developed for the CW is called "The Noise," according to TV Guide. It's based on Durst's life -- a young artist's escape from a volatile home life and success as a musician.

Thanks goodness the "Gossip Girl" set will finally have a new show to obsess over. "You know you love me. XOXO, Fred Durst."
