"Kristeen Young finds Morrissey educational" , mlive.com interview

"At one point, when I was first starting out with them, every once in awhile I would go through a style crisis. 'Who am I? Who do I want to be?' He said something to me one day: 'Don't be a girl. Everybody's a girl. Be a woman. Think like a woman.' That's sort of been my little guiding light on almost everything I design. I design my own outfits for the stage."


*rolls eyes* She also explains why she's glued to Morrissey, like we don't know.

Without a label, manager or booking agent, Young has found the Morrissey shows to be a "really great home" for her. She said it provides a stable base.

"In some way, it might even be the future with the industry the way it is," Young said. "Artists band together to form their own little collectives to get things done."

Yeah, she and Morrissey are a collective and both benefit from it just immensely and equally. She travels with him insulting his audience and in return he gets to give her advice which she pretty much has to follow. If any of us were rich enough we would probably buy a friend like Kristeen Young, too.

Thanks for the suggestion but I trust my own judgement on such matters and I think if I was going to like Young as an artist, I'd have realised it by now. As a crazy cat lady, I was obliged to think "50p? On a Kristeen Young track? That 50p would feed a rescued cat for a day!" so I'll raise an eyebrow at myself while adding 50p to the fundraising cheque I'm just about to send off to Cats Protection. :)
Well yea If u were gunna like her, you would of probably known so by now!
But good work anyways 4 all your the help you give the little pussy cats!!!! :)



I still don't get what you mean by "what she creates is absolutely incredible and wonderfully uplifting/moving" (sorry I for one refuse to use improper spelling). Her music is not uplifting and the only thing that is moving is my stomach after its done clenching in pain.

I still may be a no-body but at least I do true healing (you had mentioned in a past post that KY's music is healing-not so, I'm afraid). Whatever. She's only releveant to a small minority of people and those are Morrissey fans. Anyone outside of that circle probably has never heard of her and would probably cringe if they did hear her. She's just another blip on the music radar, that's all.

Im not really sure we should generilize about the healing of oneself and indeed of others as this remarkable and actually natural phemonena originates and takes form and effect in many different ways, its not just by the administration of drugs by Drs and from good sorts like yourself who work in the hospital enviorment!

Music therapy is just another form!
In fact from my experience music therapy is FAR MORE effective in treating many mental health problems ie deppresion ect than any drug you can take!
An overall hostilic approch is the best way forward! :)

Kristeen youngs wonderfull music and breath taking vocals are incredibly healing in there effect depending on the listener in question!
Ive never known any other artist 2 possess such incredible power 2 move people effortly into spaces and places of happyness and joy! :)

Shes simply wonderfull !!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Think Chris, Stephen, Paul, Jonna Chrisse, lulu and Trinity ect are mearly "super fans" and shouldnt have 2 put up with people coming onto a internet forum and slagging them off with lies about drug taking, bullying and sleeping around with band members ect.
And shouldnt be critisized for loving morrissey and kristeen so much that they want 2 attend there every concert and be at the front of the stage!
Anyone is free 2 follow in there footsteps and do the same, you just have 2 queue up earlier than they do 2 be at the front! :thumb:

Tell ya what a nice glass of red merlot works wonders for ones being (in moderation of course) so im gunna treat myself 2 a few!!!!!!!!! :) good evening !

She goes on stage night after night and does her set in front of whatever audience she finds in front of her, and takes it seriously.
Kristeen needs some BIG PICTURE lessons if she wants to take being a musicianship seriously. When you post on facebook that you are having a solo show at a pizza shop halfway between two Moz venues on a night off of Moz concerts, you don't market it towards barrier people who go to Morrissey concerts and hear her every night anyway. "St. Louis is on the DIRECT path between Atlanta and Lawrence, KS." (Read: I'm talking to barrier people who go from show to show.) You market your concerts to everyone, not the Morrissey clingers in order to fill up the pizza shop.

I dont see what difference it makes were some one advertizes there solo show.

By the incredible number of people on facebook these days it makes an ideal choice 2 advertsize an event, plus its FREE, it therefore makes her rather clever! :)

In fact a lot of people these days dont even send many celebration cards ie birthday or christmas cards ect - they do it all via facebook!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
That is a fact that I regard with utmost disgust.
Yea I know what ya mean!
Id much rather receive an actuall home made birthday card that someone has personally spend time in creating themselves and which includes a hand wriiten message!

Id love a hand wriiten card of morrissey and kristeen, unlickly yes, but you just never know what is store 4 you! :)

We all know morrissey has publically anounched "fuck morrissey solo" and kristeen has said on facebook !!!! LOL :) sorry! " dont ever go 2 morrissey solo"
But the fact still remains this is his number one fan base website in the world, even tho there are quite a few internet trolls who contribute and try and spoil things on here! :(

Having said all that, without facebook and other social networking sites and internet forums in general, we may miss opertunitys 2 "meet" , well ok comunicate with lots of interesting people ! :)

In a book I recently read that people like her who hardly attract an audience of their own get 2,500 USD per night as support. Is this true? Does she get this much from Morissey night after night for "opening" for him? Doesn't seem like opening however because so many people rather stay away, but that's his business decision. I also ask others NOT to give career advice to this woman. What she does not read she does not know and I do not think she is worthy any support from anybody but Morrissey who apparently needs her to polish his homosexual image.
