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 in the world.
Check out his performance on last night’s show after the jump!

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 is the real deal. [Photo: WENN]
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]
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 point Morrissey said, “Thank security,” walked off stage, and never came back. Yes, it sucked. But not nearly as much as his show Saturday night when, after singing only one song (“This Charming Man,” cause I know you were wondering)—he winced and fell to his knees. His band mates carried him off stage unconscious, and the paramedics were called. Because many people have witnessed antics like I did, they thought this was just his usual theatrics and booed. But when Morrissey didn’t return to the stage and an announcement was made that he was seriously ill and the concert was dunzo, the fans got super concerned. Morrissey was taken to the hospital and stayed there overnight, a “precautionary measure,” as the hospital put it. He was released the next morning and is said to be feeling much better, though he did cancel tonight’s concert, too. Morrissey, we hope you feel 100 percent soon and that this was exhaustion rather than something serious. Heaven knows we’ll be miserable if you’re really sick. Sorry, had 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 too much on my plate. I’d rather focus on one thing and do that when I can devote time to it, and right now, I just don’t have any desire. I think maybe I don’t [have sexual urges]! I mean, not really. I’ve just kind of shut it off, maybe. Is that bad?”
Now we know Clay is actually a gay man and the only thing he had “shut off” were his homosexual desires.
But with such confusing messages about asexuality, is it any wonder that “Awkward,” a 19-year-old woman who wrote to Professor Foxy, Feministing’s sex advice expert, was really confused by her complete lack of a libido? “Awkward” thinks she is asexual, but wondered how do you actually know?
