Quote of the Day

"(I) cannot morally be on a television program where the cast members of 'Duck Dynasty' will also be guests. As far as my reputation is concerned, I can't take the risk of being on a show alongside people who, in effect, amount to animal serial killers."

-- Morrissey on why he canceled an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week

Morrissey's show last night at Hollywood High School capped off one hell of a week for music's most miserable, insufferable prick. He dropped off Kimmel because of the Duck Dynasty people, not because it's a ridiculous show and he thought it was insulting to the world's intelligence but because they shoot a bunch of ducks; he demanded that the Staples Center in L.A. serve only vegetarian food during his performance there (they agreed to honor his wishes then wisely just said the hell with it and served meat in the upper levels anyway); he took on Paul McCartney for supporting the Royal Family, again not because the Royals are silly and antiquated but because the Queen wears fur; and finally he publicly trashed Beyoncé for supposedly carrying animal skin handbags.

When asked for a response, Beyoncé no doubt said, "Who?"

As for his show at Hollywood High, real nice of him to force his fans to have to return to the place that caused them so much trauma and misery. I wonder if everyone in that audience instinctively stuffed themselves in gym lockers and handed over their lunch money to the bouncers. Reality check, kids: If you're still listening to Morrissey, it didn't get better.

Morrissey doesn't realize that there's horsemeat in his subs, cowhide mixed into his boots and duck fat in his shampoo. The guy has a serious rusty pole up his bum and his fans consist mainly of greasy-haired vegan, Camel-smoking, goth-wearing she-male 18-year-old English majors (at least stateside). Morrissey, you're a miserable, depressed human being who spreads misery throughout the world.

You'd be miserable too if you were the son and heir of nothing in particular and a shyness that is criminally vulgar. Cut him some slack because he is a human that needs to be loved...just like everybody else does.

Fuck him. Anyone that forces his fans (who back in the day celebrated their individualism) to partake of his eating habits needs to STFU and be thankful that he even still has fans after being as relevant in today's age as Ted Nugent (and just as insufferable but in the exact opposite extreme).

My ex and I made the mistake a few years ago of actually going to a Morrissey show and we both ended up being pissed on how rude his fans were. I said to my girlfriend I bet if I punched one of these dicks they'd all fall down. Morrissey himself was catty overall but made a couple of witty remarks, and even made a statement about how happy he was to be playing in Norfolk, the home of PETA, but his performance was very dull and really quite boring. I've enjoyed some of his solo work over the years, but it never will come close to comparing to The Smiths. He really is an insufferable prick.
