    Ed Sheeran says Morrissey is talking 'absolute bollocks' after he insults singer and Sam Smith
    - NME.com
    The former Smiths frontman had claimed the public are being 'force-fed' the pair

    Excerpt:

    The former Smiths frontman had dismissed the modern music climate as "stringently controlled, obvious and predictable", with Sheeran taking to Twitter to brush off the comments as "absolute bollocks".

    Responding to NME's reporting of Morrissey's remarks, Sheeran wrote: "even you guys should think this is absolute bollocks. Taking me out of the equation, Sam was the least predictable success story of the last year."

      Sam was the least predictable success story of last year? Is that because he plagiarized Tom Petty?

      So you actually clicked on their site? I don't do it any longer because I don't want to support their trash. I don't care one bit what Moz said about Ed and Sam. I read tons of interviews a week and nearly everyone if them contains some digs against someone, yet it is never reported. So it naturally annoys me that they always pick random remarks from Moz, not everyone else, and make it look like it's unique to Moz to point things out he doesn't like because they perfectly know they get more klicks when he is in the headline from all the people who love to sigh and say "oh this Morrissey character again." It's pathetic.

      To coin a phrase, you're talking absolute bollocks. You didn't raise this level of ire when Moz talked about Ed and Sam, but when some comes back you're stamping your feet. It must be painful to pan for the nuggets of comfort. If it goes one way, expect it back, and stop crying.

      Yeah, sure. Whatever you are talking about. How do you know about my level of ire regarding every topic? I don't comment on everything on public websites like some of you. I just happened to post on this thread this time. My level of ire is mostly private. But one thing is quite interesting. Can someone around here tell me the last time skinny didn't react to anything Moz related with snipe, sarcasm, repulsion or the last time he genuinly stood up for Moz? Just interested.

      ...Not to mention the sleeves of pointless, idiotic tattoos. How much of fargone white douchebag do you have to be to have this worthless corporate trash permanantly inked on your body? I guess when you completely lack a personality, you need something to generate a conversation.

      Speaking of lacking a personality and needing something to generate a conversation... the colour of his skin is of what relevance here? I don't comment on stories of rappers and call them 'black douchebags', but maybe I should start doing that. Thanks for the idea!

      Not that I listen or like Ed, but that quote makes morrissey look a like a stupid try-hard not Ed. I know morrissey is trying to be humorous but it just fails, in this instance. Got it but meh morrissey you have pulled things like this before. I thought that when I first heard this quote. I mean morrissey is vastly more talanted and influential than Ed but why does morrissey even care if he is more popular or how he got there. Morrissey you do know that nme did their fair share of promoting the smiths in the early day. There is no shame in getting marketed.

      Morrissey some words of wisdom. The public is full of fools why do you care if they decide to listen to Ed than you. You should take the fact that the truly sensitive and emotional listen to you as a compliment. I mean by now it just sounds a bit bitter.

      Take a tip from Lyndon here. And as I always say "if you don't like the x-factor, than turn the damn channel off! Rather than to bitch to me about it"

      But I have to agree the tattoos are nauseating and another thing insulting his apperance is not a good thing. I mean not every popstar will look as gorgeous as moz. I think that a less conventional handsome person becoming a popstar sends out a great message that music is in the end the most important thing. Unfortunately I wish Ed produced quality music but that's my opinion

      Way to go. Morrissey slagged someone off, and when the same comes back to him you pile in with the ad homs, slagging off someone's appearance, calling someone a white douchebag. What a charmer. What an advocate.

      Even Tom Petty doesn't believe that. He called it a musical accident. The publishers sued because that is what they do to protect their properties, but whatever the chords in question are, there are only so many chords and there are a lot of songs.

      "About the Sam Smith thing. Let me say I have never had any hard feelings toward Sam," Petty wrote. "All my years of songwriting have shown me these things can happen. Most times you catch it before it gets out the studio door but in this case it got by. Sam's people were very understanding of our predicament and we easily came to an agreement.

      "The word lawsuit was never even said and was never my intention. And no more was to be said about it," Petty continued. "How it got out to the press is beyond Sam or myself. Sam did the right thing and I have thought no more about this. A musical accident no more no less. In these times we live in this is hardly news. I wish Sam all the best for his ongoing career. Peace and love to all."

      You're an old fool. People are allowed their opinions and it IS allegedly a Morrissey fan site.

      I really never listen this Ed Shittyran and I hope never do but Sam Smith isn't so bad (although I agree he's too predictable.

      What Morrissey said is dead-on accurate. The state of popular music continues its decline--just when it didn't seem like it could sink any lower. Ed Sheeran has more to lose in this scenario than Morrissey, because Morrissey's legacy is permanently in place. He made it. And for a long, long, long, long time. Very little promotion. Tiny amounts. Long stretches of time without a record label. Morrissey has earned the right to be definitive about popular music, as he sees it. And Ed Sheeran (are those really his tattoos???) validates what Moz is saying 100%. The ONLY thing Ed Sheeran should have "Tweeted" (how brave...responding over Twitter) is "My favorite Smiths song is This Charming Man, and My favorite Moz solo song is Suedehead." Instead he gave a sniveling "Nuh-uh! We're good!" Chalk up a landslide win for Morrissey...again.

      So... When Morrissey was lamenting the state of pop music in the 80's, 90's, and 2000's, (not to mention the 70's letters) he was also dead-on? It's a tireless song and dance from him.

      He rarely has anything good to say about anyone. I'm not trying to argue any major point here, just the fact that Morrissey shot out from the womb as a curmudgeon who enjoys talking shit about musicians.

      Sheeran is a fool. He can't sing and his manufactured songs are excremental emissions. He isn't entitled to an opinion. The day I listen to a newt like that slagging off Moz is the day I get a lobotomy. Life really is a pigsty if pink squealers like 'Ed' are the norm.

      Ed is entitled to utter his opinion just as moz and you have. Just because moz is vastly more talented than Ed does not make his opinions the right ones and the only ones that are allowed to be said. Morrissey has had a history of uttering illconvinced notions. Which he has little knowledge about. The Australia/ Eurovision remark recently is a example. Morrissey is one of the 20th century greatest poets but he isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer and let's his emotions and frustration take over him sometimes. I do agree what moz has to say about modern music and Ed but he has been saying that modern music is awful ever since he came on to the scene. He has slagged of britpop, Kate bush, elton John , Madonna, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones(he did although change his mind) and even the New York dolls once. He hates everything besides himself and his few musical loves.

      Ps he was defending himself, morrissey started with the slagging off. Never ed

      God knows tasteless white people need advocates, don't they? What was I thinking.

      Ed Sheeran is an "artist" and public figure... His outward appearance, image and "brand" is a large part of what drives his income. Why shouldn't it be open to criticism?
