London, Jan 25 (ANI): Mick Jagger has turned down an invitation to a UK event at the World Economic Forum in Davos, fearing that he would be used as a "political football".
The tea party, hosted by Prime Minister David Cameron at the Swiss resort, is designed to showcase British talent.
The 68-year-old rocker said he would now cut short his visit to Davos citing "inaccurate" comments on his political allegiances.
He said he had "eschewed party politics" during his career.
Others expected to attend the event include model Lily Cole and Sir Tim Berners-Lee.
Jagger issued a statement following stories in UK newspapers claiming he was backing the prime minister.
"During my career I have always eschewed party politics and came to Davos as a guest, as I thought it would be stimulating," the BBC quoted The Rolling Stones frontman as saying.
"I have always been interested in economics and world events.
"I now find myself being used as a political football and there has been a lot of comment about my political allegiances which are inaccurate.
"I think it's best I decline the invitation to the key event and curtail my visit," he added. (ANI)
