Criticizes Smith, Sheeran’s spontaneity

Makes Statement

Morrissey laments the dearth of spontaneous, uncontrolled musicians, citing Smith and Sheeran as examples:

There are no bands or singers who become successful without overwhelming marketing. There are no surprise success stories. Everything is stringently controlled, obvious and predictable and has exactly the same content. So, we are now in the era of marketed pop stars, which means that the labels fully control the charts, and consequently the public has lost interest. It’s very rare that a record label does something for the good of music. Thus we are force-fed such as Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, which at least means that things can’t possibly get any worse. It is sad, though. There’s no spontaneity now, and it all seems to be unsalvageable.

‘No difference between eating animals and pedophilia’

Makes Statement

In an online interview, Morrissey compares eating animals to pedophilia, claiming both are ‘rape, violence, murder,’:

They are both rape, violence, murder. If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away. Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you, ‘Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,’ well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers…If you believe in the abattoir then you would support Auschwitz. There’s no difference. People who disagree with this statement have probably never been inside an abattoir.
