Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger got political last night when he reportedly joked to fans at his D.C. concert, saying, "I don't think President Obama is here tonight ... But I'm sure he's listening in."

Perhaps it was the setting, but Jagger couldn't resist making the obvious NSA joke (and we couldn't resist reporting it) during a more than two-hour concert in what concluded the U.S. portion of the iconic rock band's "50 and Counting" tour.
