You really have got to feel sorry for Fido - poor soul. Does she know what she is letting herself in for? Being bombarded with the obsessions of Karen Malarkey from this Xmas until she pops her sparkly clogs.

Fiona in sparkly clogs, she only wants to embrace her Mozi, and be his friend forever…

forever :p
 
Morrissey could quite easily get a record deal if he were to do a credible interview with a reputable magazine / media outlet and row back on his comments on Islam , race and the whole For Britain fiasco, but he doesn’t , just gives an audience to those who will feed him soft ball questions and make it some sort of cancel culture / art debate.

Add to that, nobody is stopping Morrissey bar Morrissey himself from self releasing the album he has paid for / had produced, again his personal pride and an old fashioned industry approach is proving an Achilles heel (not that songs about conspiracy theories for notre dame will do anything for his credibility anyway , probably a blessing in disguise most people will never hear that song officially released.

Morrissey, as much as I love the artist / songs and so much of his humourous interviews / references over the years and things he’s put me onto, not to mention the still incredible live shows & voice, will need to decide if he wants to assimilate to the modern music world or just keep playing the martyr to the hardcore (a hardcore which he keeps pissing of with his concert cancellations and lack of remorse : comments about!!
 
Wether we consider him a truth-teller or not, we might all agree on the fact that Miley's vocals blocking the release of his album contributed to silence him.
I'd say his unwillingness to adapt and deal with the situation (i.e., remove or replace the vocals) caused that outcome.

It's only a matter of time before Fiona says something mildly impolitic and gets branded far-right and/or a racist.

It seems to me that he really liked Miley's vocals and was very frustrated when she decided to be out of his album. I can understand that. What I don't quite get is why he couldn't bring himself to rerecord the song, so that Capitol could release BOT.

To make a point? If so, what would it be?

liked it or he just liked the publicity he thought he was going to get out of it. I've lost patience with Moz these days, it feels like he's lost the plot.

We never know what's on his mind, but I still think his ideas are far more sophisticated than most people guess they are.

I remember it was Miley who offered to do vocals in Veronica in the first place.
 
That ‘the artist is right’, it seems (?)

Even if it means not releasing the album, for now.

I think he was actually frustrated with her management/contract, not allowing her to
be on other artist’s albums, without paying a high price(?) I’m speculating, that neither Columbia or M were willing to fork over.

Maybe.

Maybe.

In his recent interview, just before the New York shows, he said it was Miley who didn't want to be a part of BOT. It gave me the impression that it was ultimately up to her, if she really wanted to.

We already know most of the story thanks to social media, then he goes on television with his damage limitation exercise.
 
What ideas are you referring to?

Nothing specific.

He is an artist. This fact alone places his thinking, feeling and reasoning on a different wave lenght than most people. And on top of that, he's a complex, unique and somewhat troubled personality.

True... seems like he caused a lot of self-inflicted pain (by not just removing or replacing the vocals)... what we don't know is why. Because he is Morrissey might be explanation enough 🤷‍♂️

I'm more critical of him these days because I've accepted that he's very self destructive and wants to take everyone else down with him.

Agreed and this disingenuous narrative of a "truth-teller being silenced" is just so tired and frankly not helpful. Is it supposed to shame a record company into offering a deal?

All true, but very little of this is apparent in recent (non-)output like Kerouac's Crack, Notre-Dame, Sure Enough, I Am Veronica... And with him not giving interviews, not even to Sam or the Dodster, there is very little of Morrissey's genius to detect anywhere.
 
dug meat.🔝.

As another poster has pointed out, or most of it -
He stopped talking to the press when he got caught lying
He won't buy his album back and remove Miley's vocals
He had to be called out about this on twitter, basically caught in more lies
His band felt they could not work with him anymore
He is canceling shows
If anyone is silencing him, it's him

And his creative output is nothing like it used to be
