Morrissey has been "interviewed" by Russell Baillie of the New Zealand Herald about life, New Zealand, the monarchy etc:
Morrissey returns for two NZ shows - The New Zealand Herald
My favourite snippets:
"I don't feel like a contrarian, as you put it, in fact I'm unnaturally retiring. It's only social injustice that makes me shout up."
"I've spoken so much about [my autobiography] that there won't be anything left for anyone to read when it finally, finally, escapes to the public."
Last time in New Zealand, "I lost my passport, I contracted Asian Flu, I then went on to Australia where I spent 7 days under hospital supervision awaiting a blood transfusion. But the audiences were great".
"thank God for You Tube, otherwise my life would never be chronicled".
"I'm not a celebrity. I'm not here for my looks. I'm only here because of the songs".
UPDATE 3:15PM PT:
Note posted by Librarian On Fire:
New Zealand Herald has gone and splashed a photo of Moz on their Time Out entertainment liftout section.
They also re-printed an earlier interview with Morrissey from the Daily Telegraph. (date unknown).
