    Ex-Smiths vocalist Morrissey hires Susan Blond

    NEW YORK: English singer and songwriter Morrissey, who's best known for his career with The Smiths in the 1980s, has hired Susan Blond as his PR agency partner.

    Morrissey, who began his solo career in 1988, approached the firm directly to work with him on his upcoming US tour, which kicks off October 5 in Boston, said Lauren Papapietro, account executive at Susan Blond.

    Top New York-based agency Susan Blond Inc., which specializes in representing creative professionals and lifestyle brands, recently expanded its considerable portfolio with some big names, most significantly that of pop singer, former Smiths leader and asexual icon Morrissey. While Morrissey has seen his share of scandals in recent years, he remains a top concert draw around the world, and his signing is a major get for Susan Blond. Other new clients announced in a company email include the reform-minded nonprofit Correctional Association of New York, high-end jeweler Avianne & Company, tech production school The SAE Institute and expanding New York pizza chainlet L’asso.
    Blond, a Manhattan art-world veteran and former Warhol superstar, has transformed herself into one of the city’s biggest PR personalities over more than four decades of work in the field. These most recent announcements ensure that her agency will remain a top destination for edgy, creative brands.

    this is the 2nd "Morrissey"* she will have worked with
    however, the key is whether he will listen to her
    I fear that he is now too old to learn how to listen to people that are smarter than him, like her
    and who are less likely to be sycophantic morons like I suspect many currently around him are
    however, this move gives me some hope, after all, she must have learned something from her time "hangin out" with Mr. Warhol

    ‘As Morrissey is suddenly promoted as a super-wealth brand, the world outside Moztopia shivers beneath cutbacks, tight circumstances and economic disasters. Meanwhile the media present 24-hour coverage of “his dazzling Mozzness”, laughing as he lavishly spends, as if such coverage is certain to make society feel fully whole. In 2012, the public is evidently assumed to be undersized pigmies, scarcely able to formulate thought.’

    It's a misprint.

    It should read "pop singer, former Smiths leader and a sexual icon Morrissey"

    "...Morrissey, who's best known for his career with The Smiths in the 1980s..." How does Morrissey react to such statements? The Smiths were five years; Solo career going on 25 years. He'll never get the respect he thinks he deserves.

    I could be wrong, but I could swear that he has been with Susan Blonde on and off throughout the last 20 years.

    He must like the Andy Warhol connection, of course. I've seen a nice picture of her and Warhol meeting The Clash.

    spare us.

    You'd be doing the exact same thing if your life amounted to half of what his has. How many homeless people have you walked past, pretending they're "just not there"

    I think he knows the truth, that the Smiths were and are iconic, while his solo career is sadly petering out, and that in part explains some of his increasingly bizarre recent behaviour. He knows his last two albums are not close to his best but feels the need to pretend. He knows his four new songs would not have made the cut as b-sides not so long ago but simply cannot admit it.

    Besides, if people prostrated themselves and threw rose petals in front of him as he walked past he still wouldn't think they respected him enough. Morrissey now resides in his own bubble. The real world does not impinge upon him anymore.

    boy, it really eats you up that Morrissey has had a long and successful solo career after the Smiths, doesn't it, Barleycorn?

    Sad to see you summarizing his near 25-year solo career down to the past five years or so. I'm sure if Morrissey still had a record deal and was selling 250,000+ albums each time out, your same old song and dance would be singing a different tune. You shouldn't even bother signing in when you post crap like this; just lump your baseless verbal diatribes in with the rest of the anonymous slacktards who only come around to spout off with jealous rage

    Who doesn't live in their own bubble? You're saying you don't? I find that very hard to believe. You think you can pen a better Morrissey song? Share it with us then

    or else do everyone here a favor and sod off.
