List of the Lies by Morrissey

Gregor Samsa

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
Directed at VH:
What a depressing thread. And how useless. What’s the point? Has Morrissey scorned you? Are you seeking some “queeny” (great word, thanks Nerak!) revenge? What’s the end purpose?

The relationship between having Brett's Esophagus and having esophagal cancer is basically the same as between having a mole and having skin cancer. It isn't a type of cancer, but there's an extremely small risk of it becoming the site of a future cancer.

I'm not sure whether Morrissey actually ever lied about this, though, although he, did allow Larry King to talk about it as cancer without correcting him.

Exactly this. He allowed the misconception to stand. He had plenty of opportunity to correct, but chose not to.

*Barrett's, not Brett's. Having Brett's Esophagus is the title of a DVD I don't want my wife to find.

This is turning into a saga. If you have Barrett's & it turns cancerous you're hardly going to explain every detail to Larry King. It's not a health show.

He does not have cancer. He is hilariously shifty when quizzed on it.
LK: You revealed you had cancer.
M: Uhiswhhasbeenfound, yes.
LK: What kind?
M: Um... B-Barrett's.

EDIT: From your link: "The basic therapeutic options for Barrett’s carcinoma are endoscopic procedures, surgical resection, and chemo- and radiotherapy."
This is not the treatment he describes. He does not have a carcinoma. What he is describing is the treatment for Barrett's oesophagus.

Tbh I think there's a very good chance he didn't quite understand the difference himself. The doctors might have mentioned "cancerous tissue" to him. Maybe he just liked the dramatic sound of it, maybe he genuinely believed it was cancer. Personally I don't really care. It's certainly not news to anybody here that he enjoys drama.

1. Claimed he had throat cancer.

2. Claimed he was sexually assaulted by a TSA officer.

3. Claimed he was “terrorized at gunpoint for half an hour” by a Roman police officer who he “believed was going to shoot him because he recognized him.”

4. Claimed he did not have Alain Whyte fired.

5. Claimed Tony Visconti would produce the follow up to Ringleader of the Tormentors all while looking for a different producer.

6. Claimed an illness was the reason he left the Outside tour. Also claimed over half the audience was there to see him and not Bowie and they left once his opening set was over.


The list is ongoing. Feel to contribute...

He is describing an endoscopic procedure. If it's early stage, that's what they do.

He's cagey about everything until he gets outraged about the airport official & then he's too annoyed to worry about what he's saying.
