Morrissey Takes Aim At Hirst Over Dead Animal Art
Hirst, who is famous for his rotting bull and a dead tiger shark set in formaldehyde, has appalled the staunch vegetarian singer/songwriter with his art for years and now Morrissey is speaking out.
In a new article in Interview magazine, the former The Smiths star suggests Hirst should have his head "kept in a bag" for the way he uses dead animals.
He says, "I dislike the 'use' of animals in art, such as in the work of Damien Hirst... Dead butterflies, cows, horses, humans, sheep and sharks - it reads like the inventory of a funerary Noah. How many halved calves suspended in formaldehyde does the world need? To my way of thinking, none."
