Another hatchet job in The Guardian

Bigmouth strikes again and again: why Morrissey fans feel so betrayed - The Guardian
By Tim Jonze

Once his songs of loneliness and shyness made him a hero to misfits and outsiders. Yet now he is voicing his support for a far-right party


Morrissey response:
Media coverage:
Morrissey, la pop star, qui est enragé, drôle, franc, est une anomalie, appelant aux contradictions et hypocrisies dans la culture, mais il semble qu’il soit constamment réprimandé dans la presse et sur les réseaux sociaux parce qu’il parle honnêtement et ne croit pas au récit généralement admis du gay de chez Applebee.

Quote: “Morrissey’s not a racist, he’s a very intelligent lad, so challenge his opinions, fair enough, rather than saying we’re gonna ban you. You should be allowed your point of view. Other people can say they disagree with you. That’s a civilised and intelligent and grown up way of having a debate. If you don’t wanna know, you don’t learn anything.”

Andy Rourke: The world needs colourful characters like Morrissey - The List
By Bang Showbiz - 9 May, 2019.

Excerpt:

Andy Rourke says the world needs "colourful characters" like his old bandmate Morrissey.

The 55-year-old bassist co-founded The Smiths with frontman Morrissey in Manchester in 1982, and he has admitted the music industry would be "boring" without "controversial" people like the 'Everyday Is Like Sunday' singer – who is known for his forthright opinions on topics including politics and animal rights.

Andy also described Morrissey as a "unique individual and a real talent".
