Morrissey Central: "MORRISSEY, THE MIDDLE EAST." (December 3, 2019)

"To Morrissey, With Love" is the name of a photography exhibition opening on Friday 6th December at the Elham Art Gallery in the city of Ras Al Khaimah in United Arab Emirates. Elham Gallery has stated:

" (this) response from us at the gallery, and the artistic community in Ras Al Khaimah, is because we have been following with shock and concern the unjustified hate campaigns from media towards Morrissey. We have decided to stand by Morrissey, as his Muslim friends, to acknowledge that we are aware of him as a true and passionate friend, and to tell the world that we know he's not our enemy or hater, and we dedicate a group exhibition to him as thanks for being brave against this cruel and hypocritical world."

The Gallery also state that no animal products will be available at the Exhibition.

It's the Muslims who don't slaughter animals and only eat plants. They make the exhibition. That is good. Damn it, does nobody here except a few objective people understand that Morissey does everything wrong that can be done wrong in public relations? He borders out, he borders in, he says what is good and what is bad for his fans. When he notices that his public image is tilting, that the sales figures are declining and that the record company has a grudge, he simply claims the opposite. And then there are still people who defend him and say he supports "For Britain" just because it's also an animal welfare party. They completely ignore the other arguments and only want to bless the animal reference. Completely irony-free and serious.

...doesn't sit very well with...
Halal slaughter requires certification that can only be given by supporters of Isis.
...does it?

Ha! Ha! Ha!

A few fans put together an event of photos and this, somehow, is good PR, it's proof that Morrissey is not anti-Islam or racist?

This is desperation for a 'good news' story except only the stupid would believe it 'good news'.

This is another monumental blunder. Is Morrissey unaware of the UAEs track record on animal and human rights; it's stance on women and gay men are sickening.

Tour dates beckon.

It seems that Nerak's (Reelfountain) attempt at unofficial (official) PR is in full swing. It has that incompetent whiff about it.

Animals always come first for Morrissey, now and since 1983. Surely it helps him decide which party to support. Other than that his political world view is unclear to say the least. All we know it that he strongly dislikes the big political party’s and he thinks immigration is unwise as ‘life is hard enough when you belong here’. Also the same since 1988, and longer.

It is not Morrissey who has changed, it is the world and the press.

Cum on, its a big big travelling exhibition that will also reach Manchester and the Tate Modern any time soon. It will make MORRISSEY great again.

If this will be a success (you better you bet) he will be able to squeeze some middle east dates between several us legs of his IANADOAC live shows. By the way, where are the new dates for his "postphoned" euro summer tour 2017? Poland was still interested, as far as I remember. Together with the travelling exhibition it could be the "Morrissey @ the gallery" tour. If only I could be his manager. Sigh!

I don't think he has a strategy at all. Some of the things that look contrived turn out to be things he's said or done for years & anything can turn up on Morrissey's social media at any time, including personal posts from his manager that look as if he's typed out exactly what he's thinking as he's thinking it.

His real problem is he does nothing much apart from express opinions & once a celeb has been around for a while, that'll only be reported if it's highly unexpected or inflammatory in light of a current news story.

If he was a normal celeb everything he'd ever said would be buried under a heap of news about his private life, events he'd participated in... all the usual.

I admire the way you objectively put yourself in his shoes. I can't explain why Morrissey says or does certain things. In the outside perception it seems highly unprofessional, even if a manager is on board. I often have to think of Judge Weeks these days, who described him as "Devious, truculent & unrelieable" at the court hearing in December 1996. A characterization that still hurts him today and shocked the fans back then. Maybe the old judge was more far-sighted than some would like to admit.
