HELLO HELL

April 19, 2021

"This is my first comment (and hopefully my last) on The Simpsons' episode - which I know has enraged many people. The hatred shown towards me from the creators of The Simpsons is obviously a taunting lawsuit, but one that requires more funding than I could possibly muster in order to make a challenge. Neither do I have a determined business squad of legal practitioners ready to pounce. I think this is generally understood and is the reason why I am so carelessly and noisily attacked. You are especially despised if your music affects people in a strong and beautiful way, since music is no longer required to. In fact, the worst thing you can do in 2021 is to lend a bit of strength to the lives of others. There is no place in modern music for anyone with strong emotions. Limitations have been placed on art, and no label will sign an artist who might answer back. Anyway, forgive me, we all know this because we can see how music - and the world in general, has become a mesmerizing mess, and we must let it go spinning along unbearably because free speech no longer exists. We all know this. In my case, nothing about my life has ever been matter-of-fact; nothing about my songs has ever been matter-of-fact … so why would they now be? Since my very first interview several decades ago I have lived with horrible accusations to such a degree that it is generally understood that 'this is how we write about Morrissey'. In other words, I'm quite used to it. I've had enough horror thrown at me that would kill off a herd of bison. Accusations usually come from someone with a crazed desire for importance; they don't operate at a very high level. Writing for The Simpsons, for example, evidently requires only complete ignorance. But all of these things are too easy for me to say. In a world obsessed with Hate Laws, there are none that protect me. Often, the scandal sheets (do we STILL refer to them as 'news'papers?) attempt to psychologically wound an artist, and then, hopefully stir up enough hatred against that artist so that s/he is physically wounded. False theories of race are now the most common (and boring) aspect of all criticism, and will continue to be so until accusations of racism are in themselves illicit. I have watched 'Smiths fans' being attacked by the UK press on the grounds that 'Smiths fans' are too backward to understand the person that I am; I have watched the modern Morrissey audience be ridiculed by the UK press with the belief that they, too, couldn't possibly know who I am, and I have lost several high-profile friends because they could no longer live with the night and day harassment from British journalists who are suicidally anguished because they cannot urge the people around me to drum up tell-tale incidents of racism. This battle fatigue I face alone, although I am very grateful to the writer Fiona Dodwell for her eloquent appraisals of the victimization that now automatically associates with my name, and on which The Simpsons latest episode feasts.
People continually ask me why I do not retaliate - especially following the Sky Sports open slander. The answer is explained in the first few lines of this comment. Life is difficult and you must face it on your own, and even with the impossible-to-imagine legal artillary, everything can be repaired … except the human heart.

It is easier for me not to go on. You know I couldn't last."

read that before, always a good laugh. Thanks. Let’s not forget that there are worse choices than signing up for the job of being a ‘yes-man’, though Andrew called the position ‘assistant road manager’.

Going by the blog, I don't think I'd hire him - they're not meant to be omg the talent! They're meant to be where's the gaffa, you've got five minutes, who blocked that fire exit....

I didn't notice this reply!

It seems to make sense?

Even if I had powerful lawyers who could win the case it wouldn't stop it hurting ???

Yes, that's probably what he wanted to express, but that's not what the text is saying.

If we replace the 'artillery' bit with your suggestion it says "even if I had powerful lawyers, everything can be repaired - except the human heart" and the "even" makes no sense here.
But even though the syntax is flawed, the important part is that a broken heart cannot be mended...

I just read it as 'even if I won the case it wouldn't make me feel better'.

Sundays are known for The Walking Dead and The Simpsons; one a show about zombies and the other a show that is a zombie. Season 32 for eff's sake. Morrissey may have been one of the 32 people who actually watched it. Put one in its brain and get back to rebuilding society.

It started out promising...Cumberbatch was vegan last time I checked and is very capable of passable comedy. But then I see that it was written by one the Flight of the Conchords guys. Ahh, yes - who would guess that has-been Kiwi hipsters lacked nuance, soul and general artistic skill? Or that they'd resent actual talent and the longevity it engenders?

But then insults from a show that has featured (and licked the boots of) Tony Blair, Elon Musk and Zuckerberg should be considered a badge of honor. Long Live the Mozz.

As an outsider looking in, it's all too easy to tell him to "lighten up" a little. The Simpson hasn't been funny for years, and I think it's just hit a new low.
Yours sincerely,
Angry Moz Fan.

I only just read this statement from Morrissey. I've been out of the loop, and up my own arse, I guess. Nice to hear from you Moz.
 
Yeah, the cartoon - but they did post on their social media that it was Morrissey & also made it clear they really do believe he's like that. So if he was going to sue, it would be over that. But he's not going to.

Tbh, I think he probably will retire.
Retire? Morrissey? Lol

Cock of the north
Retire? Morrissey? Lol
If the worst comes to the worst ...
Morrissey would sing in my local social club .....

After all he just wants to be seen ...
An audience is an audience..
However small ......
My social club looks like the video from spent the day in bed .
A 4 king shithole ... clean but cheap .

And the barmaids look worse than the drag Queen....

I’ll wheel him out , after the bingo ,
But before the meat draw.....
