Infomercial Fails Set To The Music Of Morrissey Is A Goth’s Dream Come True

When you pair every mundane annoyance in life — from spilled glasses of wine to outrageous foot odor — with The Smiths song, “Please Let Me Get What I Want,” you have achieved the epitome of the goth aesthetic. This video pretty much sums up my whole world view. [Happy Place]…

This Charming Charlie Is Charlie Brown Run Through A Morrissey Meat Grinder

Charlie Brown is a charmingly misanthropic cartoon character. Morrissey is also a charmingly misanthropic cartoon character. So it makes sense that if you put Charlie Brown illustrations with Morrissey lyrics, you’d make magic. This Charming Charlie has all the morose qualities of Charlie Brown and all the snarky wit of the Moz. One more after…

Young Morrissey Is An Expert On The Sex Pistols & Punk Rock

Morrissey has a lot of feelings. It’s what makes him a great singer/songwriter and also what defines him as a difficult baby monster. It seems Morrissey’s been developing these tendencies since at least adolescence, if this letter he penned to music magazine NME is any indication. In 1976, a 17-year-old Morrissey wrote in to the…

Predictably, Morrissey Has A Lot Of Not-So-Nice Feelings About Margaret Thatcher

“Iron? No. Barbaric? Yes. She hated feminists even though it was largely due to the progression of the women’s movement that the British people allowed themselves to accept that a prime minister could actually be female. But because of Thatcher, there will never again be another woman in power in British politics, and rather tha…

Morrissey Cancels The Remainder Of His North American Tour

Morrissey: In with a bang, out with a whimper. The Boy With The Thorn In His Side has had to cancel the remaining dates on his North American tour, thanks to persistent health problems. According to his publicist, Mozzer is suffering from “double pneumonia, a bleeding ulcer and a gastrointestinal problem called Barrett’s esophagus.”…

Morrissey Disses Bowie, Gets With Rick Astley Instead

In a busy Morrissey-filled week, sometimes important Morrissey Watch news items slip through the cracks. Like Morrissey’s burgeoning feud with David Bowie. It seems Bowie wasn’t too keen on Mozzer using a previously unreleased photograph of the two of them for the cover of the reissue of “Last of the International Playboys.” We’re sure Morrissey…

Morrissey Hangs With McDreamy, Berates Beyonce, Snubs Marriage

Oh Morrissey! He’s had such a busy weekend! On Friday, “The Boy With a Thorn In His Side” took to the stage at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and took Beyonce to task for purchasing bags made out of rhinoceros. Beyonce’s choice of bags, claimed Moz, are responsible for the extinction of the rhinoceros. Mmkay!

Morrissey Thinks Straight Dudes Are Ruining Everything

“War, I thought, was the most negative aspect of male heterosexuality. If more men were homosexual, there would be no wars, because homosexual men would never kill other men, whereas heterosexual men love killing other men. They even get medals for it. Women don’t go to war to kill other women. Wars and armies and…

Morrissey Cancels On Kimmel Because Of “Duck Dynasty”

“Morrissey is thankful for being invited to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow, February 26. However, he cannot morally be on a television program where the cast members of Duck Dynasty will also be guests. Morrissey would be honored to play the show, if ‘Duck Dynasty’ were removed.”

Morrissey Will Not Suffer Any Meat Eating Fools

“Reports that the Staples Center will not be 100% vegetarian on March 1st are playfully untrue. Contractually, all McDonalds vendors shall be closed down, and the only thing burning shall be my heart.”
Morrissey, who loves ruining it for others, is demanding that Los Angeles’ Staples Center venue be meat-free for his March concert.

Morrissey Sulks Brilliantly On “The Colbert Report”

The British singer Morrissey is a notoriously ornery guy — and we love him for it. On last night’s episode of “The Colbert Report,” Morrissey and Stephen Colbert went head to head over Morrissey’s strict vegetarian stance and his total distaste for the British royal family. God love Morrissey: he’s like the oldest teenager i…

Morrissey Makes A Statement

Never one to keep his opinions himself, singer Morrissey held up a sign proclaiming “Anti-Royal” during a concert in Istanbul, Turkey. Moz has been a vocal critic of the British monarchy and has also had some choice words for his fellow famous Brits who’ve accepted knighthoods from Queen Elizabeth. Agree or disagree, the dude i…

I Love You More Than Morrissey Likes Being Asexual

I like you as much as Robert Smith hates Morrissey. I like you more than Kathleen Hanna likes banishing the idea that one sex is better than another. Oh hell, I like you more than ’90s alt-rock radio — which is a lot. [Cheira a Banana]…

Get Well Soon, Morrissey

Even though he’s celibate and we don’t get that, we at The Frisky are big, huge, enormous fans of Morrissey, the frontman of The Smiths and the swashbuckling-with-a-wink crooner behind nine solo albums. The first time I saw him, after 45 minutes of singing, a crazed fan ran on stage and hugged him. At which…

Which Celebs Should Asexuals Look Up To?

It’s like a word association game. Say the word “asexual” and the first thing people say is Clay Aiken. Poor Clay got stuck as the poster boy for asexuality when he told New York magazine that he had no libido.“I just don’t have an interest in … any of that at all. I have got…
