Your thread title is misleading and untrue.
Morrissey has never been a "pop star". And, I might add, he never will be.
Also, and this is going to kill you, Morrissey's last album, which was an album of cover versions I might add, charted at number 4 in the UK. His upcoming album, I Am Not A Dog On A Chain, is currently at number 23 on Amazon's preorder chart: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/new-releases/music?tag=msamzn-21
If that didn't kill you, this will; On Amazon's Alternative & Indie preorder chart, Morrissey is at number 1, and has been for weeks: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/new-releases/music/231193/ref=zg_bsnr_nav_m_h__1_m_h_
Now, just in case you're still alive after reading that, this will finish you off you tyke! Every album that Morrissey has released has been a top 10 album in the UK. Most of them have been top 5: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morrissey_discography
Not bad for a, what did you call him? An "has been pop star". Nice try though, Whalley!
