  • ah-ham...well, see... Morrissey, and guys, I would have bought the single even without the nude thing. I mean...the nude things.

    A couple of times, I posted on myspace a pic of a group of Italian guys just wearing thongs, and thought that that was saucy alright - but someone always has to surpass me, right? I don't know if I am shocked by having been surpassed or just by not being used to seeing so much flesh exposed since the days I was enjoying French movies as a student in a Paris program. But the nudity there was in a context that didn't shock me so much - it was backed by a story, that slowly (well, not always so slowly) led to that.

    But this just sped the entry of cafeine into my veins. What the heck was this all about?!

  • Some would argue that by starting off his career shirtless (sleeve for Suedehead) that we had this coming. But really, it had to be with the inner sleeve of 'Greatest Hits' that really had people in awe of Morrissey's decision making. But really, this takes the cake, dosn't it?

  • Moz' pubes! (Score:1, Insightful)

    Morrissey was once quoted as saying that he wouldn't like to appear naked on his sleeves because "it might detract from record sales. I don't want to enter at number 92." What changed?

    Boz Boorer should never appear naked in public under any circumstances. And at the risk of seeming frivolous, I wish Alain was still in the band. Now that's someone I wanna see naked! (Oh dear...)

    But all that aside, while I appreciate the humour, I don't think this photo works very well. Perhaps Morrissey really IS nearing the end of his time. As his hero Oscar Wilde once said (and this is just off the top of my head): When it's the end of the run, you can overact shamelessly. (Don't quote me on that!)
