Singer and angry vegan Morrissey says that his show at Madison Square Garden on June 27 will be totally meat-free, which is news to MSG vendors, according to the New York Post. Rolling Stone published an open letter Morrissey wrote to Al Gore and other organizers of Live Earth, a series of international benefit concerts […]

Here’s a cute Monopoly parody game by @troubledmozza, replete with Morrissey references. Brought to our attention by WFMU, the Morrisseyopoly’s locales include “cemetery” and “the fountain.” You can “START: something you couldn’t finish” and progresses to “FIND A JOB: feel miserable” for an appropriately discouraging experience. A few days later, the same account posted another “game” based on Smiths references, this one […]

If Morrissey’s sudden emergence on Twitter last week seemed too good to be true, that’s because it was. Though @itsmorrissey sported the social network’s “verified” blue checkmark, Moz made clear in a statement to fan site True To You that he had nothing to do with it: I would like to stress that I do […]

Even though Steven Patrick Morrissey has had a Twitter account since 2009, he finally mustered up a tweet today. It was as passive aggressive as you probably imagined. Here are some upcoming tweets that we imagined.   […]

This morning brings news of bad behavior from two white-dude titans of middlebrow rock: in the British, effortlessly sophisticated, and possibly racist corner, we have former Smiths frontman Morrissey; his Oklahoman, cosmically disheveled, and possibly racist opponent is Flaming Lips ringleader Wayne Coyne. Who’s the bigger dick? If you’re the type to closely follow the […]

We really wish we didn’t leave Morrissey off ANIMAL’s parody Merry Indie Xmas album/video last year, because while this guy‘s good… ours would have been better THAT’S RIGHT I SAID WHAT YEAH WHAT. Enjoy the “preview” clip of Moz signature melodramatic yodeling, with just a bit more voice-cracking and mumbling off key than necessary, but yet, […]

I knew it was gonna happen someday… Here’s a Tumblr mash-up of Peanuts comics and Morrissey and The Smiths lyrics, This Charming Charlie. Everyone existentially despondent, severely romantically misunderstood and perpetually hinting at suicide. Embrace your inner Moz and all your well-tuned tragedies, à la Charles Schulz! […]

Remember that thing I said about design-y pop cultural mashups being internet gold? Well, here you go. An illustrator and designer who goes by Billy Butcher gave a bunch of ’80s punks and rock stars a DC Comics makeover, turning Morrissey into Superman, Ian Curtis into Batman, Siouxee into Wonder Woman, and slew of others.

As you may have heard, Morrissey approached David Bowie about using a photograph of the two artists together for the cover of a reissued single. Bowie apparently declined, and now the “Last of the International Playboys” cover will feature the above photo of Moz with none other than Mr. Richard Paul “Rick” Astley himself. More […]

Apparently Moz was taking a solo jaunt to legendary East Village booksellers Strand when he spotted an elderly woman in distress. Never one to miss an opportunity to charm, Morrissey rushed to the woman’s aid. From the Queerty reader who saw it all go down: Morrissey, who was there alone, immediately rushed to her side […]
