Sorry to quote my own post, but it's been pointed out to me that during the intro Morrissey is fat-shaming Melanie here. Thoughts?

Maybe, but he did say the same about Jobriath- "a skinny boy from Pennsylvania"- so I'm thinking there's a bit more to it than that.

Can anyone help me ID the song/artist from his preshow video? It was of a live performance - singer was wearing a red dress and had tattoos.

He kept changing Paris to,some French phrase but then said he meant something slightly different? (I don’t speak French. At all)

Something else had a slight lyric change even from broadway. Hmm can’t rememebr
He was saying "gilets jaunes" aka yellow vests / jackets but he did pronounced jaunes off, not sure if intentional for an added play on words?

Recent photo:

he assumes, that all his listeners know that he is drawing a parallel to his own physical development, having once been a skinny youth in mcr. so, he is jokingly also talking about himself... assuming that those he is talking about, can laugh about it too, inviting them to laugh about it together, forgetting he might touch a carefully hidden soft spot here and there. but maybe he knows her well enough. i would say it is partly a self-deprecating, partly a thoughtless projection of self-shaming, a "we're all in the same boat"-embrace.
and he is not saying, she is "fat". neither is he.

might get problematic with an audience who havent followed him from the 80s onwards.
