Morrissey interview, 2 songs on 3 News - New Zealand TV

Very surprised but Morrissey sits down with a journalist on TV3 NZ and answers some questions about the Royals and the prank phone call and then bangs out a version of "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris."

"Night Line" ... the name of the show he was on. Keep up King old boy! ;)

Agree about 'You Have Killed Me' ~ lovely new plunging phrasing in the vocal nicely complemented the plaintive heavy-ass axe work. Sweet bit of hammond as well.

Yeah...why play new material when he can just change the syllabic emphasis on old songs. Brilliant!

Promoting songs that are seven years old. Those record deal offers should roll right in now....


My secret's my enzyme.
Wait..i thought you stopped posting? That lasted all of 15 days.

You taking notes? I've had two bowel movements today and just ate a candy. That is all.

Just realised Morrissey was in the same building as me yesturday (I work at TV3 NZ). Pretty disapointed I didn't know about this before hand but I guess they kept it on the downlow. Would have liked a chance to meet the man. Good int tho!

I love Moz but why can't he stop going on about the f***ing Royals, I'm bored of the same old shit, can't he just focus on his music instead of doing these second rate interviews, I totally agree with Skylarker about the slight change on You Have Killed Me, is this the shit.what supposed to knock our (and a record companies socks off) it was great when it was released 6 years ago. Is this really the fruits of his labour? A few mediocre tracks not even on an official release after his last album 3 years ago. It's not even like You Have Killed Me is a really vintage, lost track of his, it was on his second to last album!


"You Have Killed Me" is a Terrible song and incredibly, "Paris" is even worse.


Re: Morrissey interview and song on NZ TV

Morrissey is going to get so much crap if the British papers pick this one up.

The real reason Morrissey is so upset about the Royal Family is he wants to be The Queen of England.

A jetlagged Morrissey gives it both barrels to that bunch of parasitic benefit scroungers. And needless to say he is right about the prank call and the manner in which the British media whipped it up to a frenzy and were culpable for the nurse's demise.

If we didn't have an anachronistic hereditary monarchy the world would be a better place. To suggest we are somebody's subjects in an alleged 21st Century modern democracy is beyond parody.

Still Pippa has a nice arse.

I'm sure the mainstream media will pick up on this but the problem is that the revolution in global communications have made people question the status quo and increasingly question the state and its complicity in mass cover-ups. ergo that Snooper's Bill the Tories are trying to put on the statute books now. And 15 years of Nu-Labour's attempt to control peoples' lives.

Good interview, quite surprising really


Has no substance to his arguements, Why are they not dictators? well explain, please i would like to know the reasons. He is just filled with nonsensical, critical, headling grabbing buzzwords

I love Moz but why can't he stop going on about the f***ing Royals,

Maybe its because the british royal family endorse and participate in the horrific torcher and cruelty of another living species via there love of blood sports - fox hunting!!!!!!!! :(
Not only does fox hunting set a disgracefull example 2 the nation, but these criminals who endorse and participate in this cruelty also encourage and cultivate a world full of hate and suffering !

So maybe this is one of the reasons why morrissey goes on so much about the royal family - becaue they murder innocent animals ?
Morrissey cant help loving and helping animals , its who he is, and the fact he simply refuses to not continually speack out on behalf of our kind little animal friends, speaks volumes about the kinda man he really is! :)

Keep on keeping on morrissey!!!

I think Morrissey looks rather smart. Smart commentary and smartly dressed.
I also think he looks a bit trimmer.

Love him or hate him, or somewhere in-between, one cannot deny, a new vid interview is fresh fodder for your fancy fetish!
Fetish away. With fry sauce, please.

For those with shoe q's:

Nonleather shoes.

Just a few companies that sell some great varieties of vegan, vegetarian shoes:
Moo Shoes in NYC USA (store, and website sales. Sell a wide variety of brands: dress, trainers, deck)
NOHARM in UK (website, shoes crafted in Italy)
Vegetarian Shoes in UK (store- Brighton, and website sales; dress shoes, trainers, deck shoes, accessories)

I'm sure there are many others!!


Not a bad interview but they kept on (both Moz and Interviewer) about the Royals thing a bit too much. I agree with him for the most part, but then when he says something like he moved overseas because of the Royals it's like "really? grow up..." because you KNOW theres more to a move than that, but its a little embarrassing when he states stuff like that.

Yes but it would be a little more embarrassing if he had said, "I moved overseas to avoid paying a court-ordered debt that resulted from my childish ineptitude 15 years prior and my bullheaded ignorance where financial and legal matters were concerned."

"I left England in protest of the monarchy" sounds a lot more dramatic and hyperbolic...and that's right up his alley.

He did explain his reasoning in the full interview. Especially when the interviewer quite rightly challenged him about Syria. He hasn't got a PhD in political science, although he could have one in creating a media shitstorm for speaking his mind.

Spot-on interview. I do laugh at the comments from posters here trying to analyze and judge Morrissey's thoughts and words in the interview. He makes point after point made with thesis, explanation, and example. Please post your counter arguements and say why you disagree with his position on the recent death of the nurse or the royals in general, rather than offering spineless criticism.

No I don't KNOW. Please explain what the "more" is. And why would he give a f*** about anyone being embarrassed for him. When has he ever? I certainly am not.
