Yup he'd better throw a no holds BBQ ala David Lee Roth.
Oh wait no one likes him either...

If you believe for one second that Morrissey didn't know those comments would be YouTubed, bootlegged, message boarded and media reported, you must be very naive. Has he never done anything like this before? Do you think public figures make controversial public statements because they want their opinions kept on the down-low? Do you think Bradford was the location for the f*** Morrissey-Solo t-shirts for any special reason, or do you think he knew everyone would find out about it regardless of what city he was in? Come on now, let's be real.
Morrissey should go on the simpsons and be lisas guide and mentor on a groovy, veggie musical based episode he could team up with bumble bee man because he's Mexican and a bee so Morrissey would adore that!
Morrissey is not the hugely calculating, super-intelligent media manipulator many people seem to believe.
I don't think Morrissey has changed that much since the beginning - it's just that everything he is and is about has become much blunter (some would say less poetic/witty).
There's a multi-part documentary on Youtube on Lemmy and Motorhead. He was around 57 when it was filmed (7 years ago?). He has not changed one iota either but his original incarnation was a lot rougher around the edges to begin with.
Morrissey revels in the fact that he's a thoroughly unpleasant person; he talks about it in interviews, he writes and sings songs about it, and I take him at his word that he's unfit for human cohabitation.
I'm annoyed with a comparison of Morrissey and Lemmy.
Morrissey's bluntness and Lemmy's crudeness are totally different characteristics.
Tho he might say that of himself, I think Morrissey is a gem of a man (in personality as well as talent), and genuinely kindhearted. I think he just finds most things/people in the world intolerable...
That's not the same as 'hating everyone'. He doesn't exactly go around being aggressive. You can be critical of the world but be peaceful about it.
I'd advise against calling it that. Some people may think it's a fried chicken joint.
Although I'm glad that Morrissey seems to have remained interested in animal rights, I do wish he'd be sensible about his statements, because nonsense like this does not help. He speaks his piece and gets into his air conditioned limo and beetles off while the poor saps who do ongoing public outreach get kicked, spat upon, and verbally abused because members of the public have been riled by statements like his. If you're going to say something this incendiary, then grow a spine and stay around and answer questions. Take full responsibility.
