So, what’s Morrissey been up to lately? Being insufferable, as usual. For one thing, he’s still indulging his lifelong habit of canceling tour dates. There have been times when he’s canceled dates or even whole tours because he just plain didn’t feel like playing, but this time he’s canceled the remaining dates of his US tour for medical reasons. Pneumonia, I believe, plus something else having to do with the esophagus. You know, things that aren’t compatible with singing. Obviously, this is a huge bummer for anyone having tickets, although I for one got a refund on mine. Let’s hope he gets all better and reschedules sometime soon. And it’s kind of a weird honor to fall victim to one of Morrissey’s famous cancellations. He’s also kept busy pissing people of in other areas of life. He refused to appear on some late night talk show because he disapproved of his fellow guests, some reality TV ’stars’ with a show about hunting. Par for the course, Moz. And, of course, the feuding, always the feuding. Still not getting along with David Bowie, Bryan Ferry or Paul McCartney. Their crimes: refusing to let him print their pictures in his reissues and not being vegetarian; not being anti-fox hunting and not being vegetarian; and being vegetarian but not enough, respectively. I think Morrissey gets off on irritating the living daylights out of anyone he can. Well, he does make a lot of people hate him, but nobody has more devoted fans than he, and we find his cantankerous ways quite lovable and amusing. Because half of what he says is a joke, and the fact that nobody but a select few followers even gets it is the whole punchline.
