What's jagger/a jagger in the title of the song Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5?

I've looked up the word on Urbandictionary and there are all sorts of different definitions on it. I've also found out that Jagger is also a name of the lead vocalist of the Rolling Stones. So what does jagger in this song refers to?
