What grabs me about this interview is his comment about the NY Dolls not having anything to say to him, makes me sad for him considering how he feels about this band. He seems to give a lot to people and not necessarily get a lot in return from people. Including the people on this site. He tour sa lot , interviews, leaves cute pictures on TTY and the losers on this site can only pick everything to shreds.
Considering Margaret Thatcher's willful, spiteful disregard for the health and dignity of countless gay men who died due to the AIDS epidemic during her reign, one should hope she received the same in kind. How soon the pale children forget.
"In US People love that mentality of following figures are technically insane but are shocking in an entertaining way, like a car accident. Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter ... Ah, the list is endless." - Morrissey
In rock journalism, people love that mentality of following figures that are technically insane but are shocking in an entertaining way, like a car accident...the list is endless.
" I think the media have terrible problems to deal with someone who does not behave like a cliché. You have to have a wife, or you have to be seen in nightclubs with supermodels ... Otherwise, you're just too confusing and complicated for tabloid gossip."
Yes, that must be it...
Is this Morrissey's latest whinge? That the media fail to understand the concept of the 'humasexual'. The hilarious thing is the tabloids have always had zero interest in Morrissey's private life despite decades of him trying to bait them into interest. Who wants the details of the private life of a 56 year old humasexual C List ex-celeb ? No wife, no supermodels, just a male hairdresser as constant companion for years. How could any tabloid fail to gossip about Morrissey's private life? After 'List of the Lost' only actual video footage of Morrissey having sex would be believed. It's impossible to imagine him having sex with anyone other than himself. And nobody want's to see that in The Sun or The Mirror. Yuk!
Morrissey is beyond a cliche. Still trading on supposed 'punk rock' credentials as he coasts towards his dotage in skater t-shirt. One can't help but wonder what he'd now have to do to get ANY coverage from the mainstream press. He could always move to Syria and join ISIS in protest at the TSA. That would get him tabloid attention: for the pictures of ISIS throwing his humasexual corpse from a high rise building.
I took it as a pointed remark about the way people within the arts and entertainment industries who seek major success but do not fit a conventional heterosexual image were for a long time marginalized by their peers and by mainstream media. Of course, this is less so the case now than when Morrissey first achieved fame, though it still happens.His little snipe at people who have a wife is interesting. Does humasexuality preclude a happy relationship? I think that was less about being envious of tabloid coverage and more about being envious of, and hateful towards, people with successful relationships.

I didn't care to reply to your post #31. I didn't agree in what you read into or misread of M's answer. Which is why I did not reply or criticize your post. Sorry, I don't have much time, And can't reply to everyone's post.
I gave Detritus post #32 a thumbs up, simply because I agreed in the way he/she interpreted M's answer, that's all.
Also, by giving Detritus's post a thumbs up...was in no way in criticism of your post #31. Sorry If it looked that way.
And shouldn't you be replying to Detritus if you're looking for a kiss?
That's Joe Dallesandro from a pornographic film shoot. (He's being sodomized and loving it, it seems, but little Joe never gave it away.)
Holly Woodlawn died today. Rest in peace, you magnificent mess.
