I'm exactly 0% surprised by this turn of events.
At any rate, based on the statement from Universal's spokesperson, it seems they are at this point open to reissuing the single with proceeds donated to a charity of Morrissey's choice. If he really wants to show solidarity with the victims of the Paris attacks with a sentimental gesture to raise money and make some sort of positive impact, it appears Universal are extending him the opportunity to do so. I'm interested to see if he takes it or if it goes ignored, or rebuffed with another passive aggressive TTY statement or infantile image macro.
incredible, he probably imagined the whole thing while in a vodka haze.
remember when moz wrote in his autobio that the rest of the smiths tried to get rid of him? methinks moz is a liar who loves playing the victim way too much
