In an interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais, the Mozfather took aim at artists who use the internet to source the money for album projects. “It is a desperate measure, and insulting to your audience,” he railed. “We have already provided sufficient amounts of money.

What's Morrissey's New PETA Video All About?


Morrissey

In what is possibly the least surprising collaboration of the year, legendary singer/songwriter Morrissey has teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in an animated video that is backed by the musician’s 1992 track, 'I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday.'

The three minute long dramatic video clip depicts an adorable baby chicken named Nugget, who’s separated from its mother while being shipped off to a slaughterhouse. The chicken, while in its tearful travel, manages to escape and, after wandering through a dark forest, finds sanctuary at PETA headquarters where animals roam free. However, the scene pans back to the slaughterhouse where the process repeats, showing that every chicken usually isn’t as lucky.

Did You Really Think Morrissey Had A Twitter Account?

When Morrissey apparently started Tweeting away, fans and detractors of the controversial singer were excited. He’s known for his outspoken views, and rarely seeks filtration when it comes to communicating with the public. Purely as an entertainment vessel, Morrissey on Twitter was a thrilling prospect.

Alas, it’s not him. “I would like to stress that I do not have either a Twitter or a Facebook account. I gather that a Twitter account has been opened in my name - as 'It's Morrissey' - but it is NOT Morrissey. I do not know who has opened this recent Twitter account, but please be aware that it is bogus. That's, of course, if you should remotely care. Untwitterably yours, MORRISSEY,” he wrote on True To You.

Jon Howells, spokesman for the Waterstones book chain, said Friday that the book is likely to become a Christmas best-seller.

"In Britain, he is one of our icons," Howells told the Associated Press, "His is the great untold story from the '80s generation of music heroes."

Bigmouth Strikes Again: Morrissey To Publish Memoirs As 'Penguin Classic'


Morrissey The Smiths Johnny Marr

Morrissey appears to have ended his dispute with publisher Penguin and will finally release his memoir, titled Autobiography, as part of the Penguin Classics range on October 17, 2013.

According to a statement from the publisher, the book will come out in the UK, Europe and the British Commonwealth, though there are no plans to release Autobiography in the US or any other territory.

Morrissey Pulls Out Of Book Deal Three Days Before Publication, Says Semi-Official Fan Site


Morrissey The Smiths

Morrissey is either as miserable now as he ever has been, or his fan site True-To-You is stirring up rumours that will probably do more harm than good to the former Smiths singer. According to the online fanzine, Morrissey's auto-biography was due to hit shelves on 16 September, but "a last-minute content disagreement" with him and Penguin Books "caused the venture to collapse."

Morrissey's book deal with Penguin, which may not have even existed, fell through at the last minute

With the due publication date set for Monday, 16 September, this "last minute" disagreement must have been brewing for some time as the book has yet to make it's way on any booksellers schedules, which usually give wind of an impending publication a few weeks before it is due out. According to the fanzine, Penguin never printed any review copies off and Morrissey is now searching for a new publisher to put his story out there. Penguin have so far refused to comment on whether the book was due to be released, or even confirm whether they had a prior arrangement with the singer.

A tired Morrissey has confirmed that his tour of South America is off. The singer, who blames a "lack of funding," seems as if he’s ready to quit touring all-together. "Cancellations and illness have sucked the life out of all of us," he wrote, "and the only sensible solution seems to be the art of doing nothing."

PETA Ad Against Fortnum & Mason To Be Funded By Morrissey's Channel 4 Lawsuit Winnings


Morrissey Gordon Ramsay

In a rather complicated set of events, each and every one dripped in irony, Morrissey is to bankroll an advert from PETA, which denounces the sale of Foie Gras in Fortnum Mason. Morrissey won the money in a lawsuit against Channel 4 because the station used his song "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want" as part of Gordon Ramsay's Christmas Cookalong Live back in 2011.

MorriseyMorrisey is famous for his views on animal cruelty

Ramsay uses Foie Gras in some of his recipes, hence Morrisey’s disdain when one of his songs was used to promote the chef’s show. "With this generous gift, Morrissey is literally putting his money where his mouth is and combating cruelty to animals", says PETA Associate Director Mimi Bekhechi.
