Morrissey continues to be... Morrissey; somewhat awkward when speaking, but a fish in water when he sings. Forthright and evasive all at once.

Cancer: so true - one's knees do tend to get a bit wobbly on the stairs.

Good of him to take (apparently unscreened) questions. I appreciate his sincere effort with his favorite Oscar Wilde quote - I would have done the same.

I love that he is constantly, unapologetically himself, with all his quirks and awkwardness in tow. He needs to do more interviews like that one. If I'm not too bold to say so.

It's a very good thing that Morrissey doesn't Tweet - he'd break the outrage machine.

"Memory glands." Can't tell you how good it was to laugh again. I also had a laugh when a car commercial came on that included a quote by Oscar Wilde. Coincidence?

Sorry to hear you haven't laughed in a while. :( "Memory glands" - I'm sure that Larry was as confused as anyone. :D

What a boringly dull interview. He said nothing even remotely witty or interesting. And Barrett's (oesophagus) is not cancer.

"It's only about marketing"....true and he has one of the best marketing groups put together in the history of the music business. I'm glad he is wearing the necklace Nancy gave him. I have to say I like aloof Morrissey better when he didn't do interviews. What's next, Kerry Gold Soybean Cheese spokesperson? Anonymous-

Did he say anything about how he's going to perform at F Y F Festival ? A festival that is just like Glastonbury as he pointed out earlier in the year NOT ANIMAL FRIENDLY !
Did he come clean about 33 years singing meat is murder for his supper whilst eating Dubliner Kerrygold on the side ? Did he pick the Qs and have prepared answers ?

Because we must

Benny-the-British-Butcher

Yawn. Needle stuck in groove. Benny is like the shipping forecast. You can tune in after years away and it's still exactly the same.
Actually I think I enjoy the shipping forecast more.

My secret's my enzyme.
Is he surrounded by PETA people? There was a real Heaven's Gate vibe when he said about the shoes "We say animals." and they all laughed behind him.
 

Gregor Samsa

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
When asked what kind of cancer he has/has had he answered Barretts. Barretts isn't cancer, as most of us know (although it can lead to cancer). Why didn't Larry follow up on that? Sloppy.
Also, when asked what treatment he's been receiving he answered scrapings. Scraping is pre-cautionary. Again, sloppy.

Evasive, melodramatic Moz is still getting away with this cancer business. It's insane. We could've had this cleared by now.

What he says about Russell Brand is very sweet and heartfelt and I think he captures him quite well:

"He is a one-off and he has a big heart. He doesn't actually like to upset anybody even though he steamrolls in with everybody but if he upsets somebody he crumbles. So, he's nice."

And that bit:

Larry: "On your new album there is a song called Forgive Someone. Did you write that?"
Moz: "I did, yes."
Larry: "Are you the forgiving kind?"
Moz: "I am, yes. It's a great feeling (or failing?)."
Larry: "I have that too. I don't carry a grudge."
Moz: "Well, you don't carry a grudge but you don't remain friends with people who have done some horrible to you."
Larry: "No. But I don't think about it. You think about it a lot?"
Moz: "I think about everything too much."
Larry: "Really?"
Moz: "Yes, I have this chattering voice, this chattering mind, and it just doesn't stop, and nothing can make it stop."
Larry: "Did people hurt you a lot?"
Moz: "I'm a sensitive little thing and I'm very interested in poetry and the poetic side of life, and so obviously it's hard in modern life because there's no poetry in mordern life.
There's nothing very nice about modern life. It's very difficult. So, yes I feel pangs very easily."

Larry King appeared to have never heard of Moz before and just read out the questions he'd been handed. A very one way admiration.

As for the veganism announcement, that he followed it with "everyone goes vegetarian first, it's expensive and hard to be pure straight away" will assure he gets criticism for quite some time yet. He needs to start promoting veganism for its ethics, keep it positive and not advocate outdated vegetarianism.

Last of the famous international screw ups.
Brummie should be happy, I think he got his shoe out just for him!

Hmmm, after watching that performance of KMAL, is Boz simply singing "kiss me a lot" when he does the backing vocal part? Or is he saying something else? When his lips moved it looked different somehow.

After all that said and done I still love Moz, I go through periods where he annoys me and I roll my eyes but he's still brilliant to me. It was nice seeing a proper interview too, not as cringeworthy as the Jonathan Ross interview. He's looking good and seems in relatively good spirits. I just wish he'd give his head a shake sometimes with the shit he comes out with. Roll on Hull!

P.s I'd still give him a jump.
