• Statement by Morrissey on TrueToYou, Sept 14th, re. Smiths cds, blog & tour

    Statement - true-to-you.net

    Morrissey would like to stress that he has absolutely no affiliation with the site called Morrisseysworld, and that the views expressed on Morrisseysworld blog and Twitter page are not Morrissey's views, and do not come from Morrissey. Morrissey has no connection with this site. Please beware.

    Morrissey would also like to stress that he has no association with the Warner release called 'The Smiths Complete'. This project has taken place without any consultation to Morrissey, and without any approach to Morrissey from either Warner, Rhino, or Johnny Marr. Therefore, Morrissey has no knowledge of the remixes, and has had no input in the project.

    Morrissey would like to thank all of the people who have - so quickly - bought tickets for his November and December US tour, which he looks forward to very much.

      Sorry but why has nobody mentioned that even if the blog wasn't the work of a pathetic, lonely little man in a bedsit, it would STILL be utterly tragic?? Even if Morrissey WAS behind it, it'd be the most pathetic thing I've heard of in a while.

      No sense of humour? Just stay here, it's where all the humourless trolls reside.

      I'm sorry, but I think your credibility evaporated sometime in the beginning of August....
      Cold compress may help with the chaffing you must have from crossing/straddling back and forth
      over the fence on this matter.

      Watching you scampering one way, then the other, repeatedly - has been like watching a one-player tennis match.

      If it was a FAKE, lying lawyers/ gun for hire, would have shut it down long ago.
      So who runs that place anyway? ... Drum roll

      B. Spencer
      C. Jesse
      D. Russell Brand

      Agreed! Detroit show, please. I got tickets for Chicago of course... But a second show in my home town would be icing on the cake!

      If it is him, then he's playing along with the drama that he claims to be toxic here on Solo. Pathetic!

      Well I agree with those above who say it must be him by now. It's not even credible to suggest anyone other than Morrissey runs the site.

      Firstly you have a site that nobody had heard of until Morrissey brought our attention to it, and has since publicised it again not once but two further times - with its web traffic predictably increasing each time.

      Secondly you have about 10-15 things the website promised all happening - from the sublime to the ridiculous. Promises to take his shirt off when we all thought he'd stopped, mentioning the blog or at least a story form the blog live, predictions of the US tour the day before it was announced, the facdt the website predicted he would appear witha white rose 2-3 weeks ago and suddenly his name appears in that Linder article with a huge white rose next to it, the blog even predicted he'd deny owning the blog a third time! If you think it's all coinicdence at this stage, you should probably seek psychiatric advice. At the very least Morrissey is a reader of the Morrisseysworld blog and more likely he knows who runs it or runs it himself.

      Thirdly there's the wit and the writing. Forget all the stupidly unbelievable coincidences. How about this

      MorrisseysWorld Morrissey
      Normalcy is overrated – nobody ever reaches the end of life and announces with a flush of pride, “well I did it – I was normal.”

      My friends, if I could give you a word of advice this morning - don't accept advice. Simply be yourself. Nothing is more pressing or true.


      I’m the second most honest singer in history. Michael Buble has never lied, but that’s principally because he has never said anything.

      I’d rather have syphilis than Morrissey so-low. At least syphilis goes away for about twenty years.

      An Essay On The Beginnings of a New Man

      The nineteen eighties were passing me by. Snarling androgyny, the dullish glamour of those sickly pale-thin creatures in scarlet lippy and girlish belts juxtaposed with crunching guitars - T Rex, The Dolls and Ziggy Stardust - had faded gracelessly into handfuls of black earth, rock 'n’roll retirement, and tie-wearing early 80s chic respectively. The cheaply-assembled but eagerly-deployed scud missile that was British punk seemed to detonate unexpectedly in mid-air, causing chaos, panic and the odd ill-advised trip to the barber’s, but surprisingly little lasting structural damage. As the ash clouds of punk spilled over and fell, gathering like anti-snowflakes on Manchester’s light-absorbing grey paving stones, bringing down as they fell over weeks and then months our studiedly vague aspirations for a slightly different world, the two-up two-downs remained indignant. They seemed to peer up over the brutal urban wasteland – all ersatz municipal parkland, stubborn decaying semis and that mild, nauseating smog that was the Manchester air - wondering what might come next. What would come next? Nothing at all.

      An Essay On The Beginnings of a New Man

      The nineteen eighties were passing me by. Snarling androgyny, the dullish glamour of those sickly pale-thin creatures in scarlet lippy and girlish belts juxtaposed with crunching guitars - T Rex, The Dolls and Ziggy Stardust - had faded gracelessly into handfuls of black earth, rock 'n’roll retirement, and tie-wearing early 80s chic respectively. The cheaply-assembled but eagerly-deployed scud missile that was British punk seemed to detonate unexpectedly in mid-air, causing chaos, panic and the odd ill-advised trip to the barber’s, but surprisingly little lasting structural damage. As the ash clouds of punk spilled over and fell, gathering like anti-snowflakes on Manchester’s light-absorbing grey paving stones, bringing down as they fell over weeks and then months our studiedly vague aspirations for a slightly different world, the two-up two-downs remained indignant. They seemed to peer up over the brutal urban wasteland – all ersatz municipal parkland, stubborn decaying semis and that mild, nauseating smog that was the Manchester air - wondering what might come next. What would come next? Nothing at all.

      Winter 1982. Manchester seemed glassier than ever, all pale angries, and pale sads, and pale cruelties. The death of punk had informed me of the true power of music – which is that it means absolutely nothing. Aestheticism as pure as any Wildean short story, utterly devoid of a moral; music is about beauty and - Being a Pop Star-? Being a pop star is about being fascinating. If you cannot be fascinating, then be handsome. If you cannot be handsome, may I suggest The X Factor Auditions?

      In 1982, intention was all that I had. Wintriness breeds wintriness, as a writer once wrote. When the soul lives in a glum rock box and the air is frostier than any half-remembered June day-excursion to Scarborough, the beauty of the freezing cold is all that one possesses. Sycamore tree leafless and crippled leans, like stag antlers bored into frozen top soil; green frog-eye Wellington boots scurry for grip on un-gritted roads; small bluish hand enshrined in fuliginous fingers, glinting under raw sodium lights; the Arndale centre like some oafish soul-cemetery, sucking in the human spirit like coke through a straw, and twisting it into a walking, breathing, cacophonous death. Snow fell that winter. And I made my plans.

      Fourthly - yes both accounts would be closed down if he wanted them closed down, so obviously he doesn't.

      Personally I think the blog is a work of comedy genius. If you read it from beginning to end, it's a work of art in its own right.

      Morrissey will appear again with a rose and wear the t shirt of a pop act and then finally the solowers will get the joke and move there, leaving this site with just a bunch of clueless moderators and nothing to moderate. It's genius. He can say what he wants and nobody can prove it's him, and at the same time finally ruin this website, which he's wanted to do for a decade by now.

      Anyway I'm back off to Morrisseysworld. This place is a bit too yesterday for me.

      Ciao.

      Can't wait for the opening commentary from Morrissey, once here in America. That shoudsettle all this. No way would Morrissey, of all people, allow any site to use his name, without his approval. Oh ya.... Our guess is choise E . The dog who bit Morrissey runs that place.

      Morrissey calling the Remasters "Remixes" to confuse the buyer.. He'll get royalties... You'd have to be crazy not to buy these... at a minimum, the less expensive CD-Only set. AND, if they all were involved... ALL SMITHS members, and you were asked, "Which Smith should oversee the remastering?" Would you REALLY Choose Morrissey over the guy who created the music? I wouldn't.

      The only real mystery about Morrisseys World is why anyone continues to come to morrissey solow when MorrisseysWorld has all the news they have here and more - and earlier, when it also has highly amusing satire and Morrissey art features, as well as being publicised by Morrissey who has mentioned it three times and never once criticised it, whereas he calls this place so low and swears about it.

      Surely this site won't be around for very much longer if Morrissey continues to publicise/endorse the other site?

      At least the moderators aren't censoring all mention of this site given that this thread is about morrisseysworld blog and morrisseysworld twiter, which is progres I supposed.

      My favourite Morrissey twittism (good word huh?) so far is this one:

      MorrisseysWorld Morrissey
      If Elton John can’t sell something he’s not interested in it. It’s a shame he doesn’t apply that logic to himself.

      or maybe

      Let's say it is the biggest hoax in internet history, it's still hilarious and the above witticisms are certainly a step up from the absolute crap you get on this website.

      Most of the anonymous comments posted in this thread are from the same IP address as are likely the ones on your site. The manipulation may get you short term traffic but good luck in the long term.

      If the blog was fake or if the twitter was impersonating morrissey - it would be gone.
      We all know his solicitors are just chomping at the bit to use up that retainer money...

      Nope, it's him alright - and the genius of it is - he knows that if he mentions it - it will have to be posted here as "news" on the main page, without it being deleted as a reference to that "other site"....

      Not to mention, (but i will), the ability to say anything about anyone without recourse ....
      agreed !!!
