In Denmark (Wikipedia), what Jagger did with the girl wouldn't have been a crime:
"Whoever has sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 15, shall be punished by imprisonment for up to 8 years ..."

However, if he had started to teach her singing or dancing, for instance as part of her performance in Stones videos, it would have been different:
"Any person who has sexual intercourse with any child under 18, who is said person's adopted child, stepchild or foster child, or who is entrusted to said person for education or upbringing, will be liable to imprisonment for any term not exceeding four years." This applies, e.g., to teachers."
"Stupidity renders itself invisible by assuming very large proportions. Completely unreasonable claims are irrefutable. Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
"The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions." K. Marx
