Do you have any evidence to back up your claim that this singer is 'gutted about what's happening in Ukraine? He was only interested in the Maidan Orange Revolution as a colourful accessory backdrop to his ludicrous wailing attempt to 'connect with politics'. He probably got Russell Brand to check the lyrics as 'empathetic' but they're pathetic. He is saving his 'controversialist contrarian' trolling on the war until it feeds the publicity machine for his next album release. Then he'll make some absurdly provocative statement about how animals are suffering in the war and nobody cares about Ukrainian Cats because they are sociopaths, or something like that. He has zero interest in 'current affairs' other than to use them to weaponise his publicity and pivot eyeballs from the issues in discussion to him so that the discussion becomes about Morrissey.Moz is certainly connected with and gutted (like most of us are) about what's happening in Ukraine.
As someone mentioned above, Moz was aware of the suffering in Ukraine as early as 2014 (WPINOYB) and wrote a song mentioning it. Moz's always been aware of what's going on in our warring planet (politically and/or physically).
However, also like most of us, who are here talking about him (and not discussing the war), he's been taking care of his everyday life. What's wrong with that?
"How can I turn the mass panic about this war to my advantage so that people realise I have a new album out? What can I say that will infuriate and distress 'clueless consumers' so that my disturbed 'fans' continue to believe I am an Outsider-Radical Artist, not a money-grabbing charlatan?"
