Morrissey Rants About Politics, Not Playing On TV

"God Bless Social Media!"

Morrissey took to the internet to blast whomever wandered into his sights this time, which just so happen to be his record label, the British royal family, George W. Bush, and television in general. In an open letter posted to the Morrissey fansite True To You, Moz lamented that his label did not back any videos from his latest album World Peace Is None Of Your Business, but did personally thank a few YouTubers who did.

“I am indebted to three sources that have placed their own well-crafted videos on You Tube for the song World peace is none of your business. The three individual sources are named as Sharon Jheeta, Héctor González and wpeace123456. These videos fully understand the intent of the song, and I am relieved that these films exist. Yes, a similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label, but please understand that the pop or rock industry can be as dedicated to perpetuating public deception as the world of politics itself. God bless social media!”

He goes on to critique modern governments and media about their involvement in political conflicts and their apathy towards animal rights, but closes with; “In answer to many people who have asked, I should like to finally make it clear that I have not received any television invitations - worldwide! - to either discuss World peace is none of your business, or even to sing any songs from the album.”

No one has invited you to play your songs because you would probably cancel right before the show as you do to your fans in the US for three straight tours.
