    Music awards are none of your business -
    10 February 2015

    Something suspicious is in the process for launch on February 25th, with which prewar primitives who remember the Smash Hits Awards will be familiar...

      Haha, the Brits have really got to him, I do agree with his sentiments though. There's no point in adding to that, it's quite a rant.

      Look at me! Look at me! I'm still here! And I'm commenting on a current event! I'm being controversial! I'm IN THE NEWS.

      Jesus fucking Christ. This schtick is so, so old and hackneyed.

      Make a record. Be good. Sell it.

      I was on the can and started reading that. Then scrolled. And scrolled and scrolled. I think I overblew my bowels from how long that took to read.

      I think the next album should be titled: "Signed 'Vexed in LA'."

      Where to begin? *SMFH!*

      Can someone point me to the public poll which the good citizens of Norway voted for Morrissey to appear at the 2013 Nobel Awards Gala in Oslo?

      Was there a vote in Tel Aviv to grant him the keys to the city?

      Is Morrissey complaining that the BRIT awards are rigged by the largest capitalist music corporations to ensure they receive a return on their investment? If so, why is he simultaneously complaining about their failure to offer him a recording contract with a lavish publicity budget to ensure he....appears on the BRITS?

      " The Brit Awards do not ask the public who they would like to see receive awards - for that would be to risk too much"

      Try again. And epicFAIL again. Of course they do. They ask the hoi polloi to confirm their marketing and PR trends are correct before signing up the next likely radio-friendly unit-shifting cash cow. I regret to inform Morrissey that that's unlikely to include a dyspeptic embittered middle-aged conspiracy theorist.

      "The maximum trimmings divert your attention from the fact that Taylor Swift has nothing to do with Coventry or Wrexham"

      Where was this rant *composed*? Coventry? Wrexham? Or Bel Air? Hilarious drivel from a mulitmillionaire music entrepreneur who flits from LA to Rome to Switzerland. I assume this bilious aside towards Tay is to do with the fact that she has sold more than 5 million copies of her latest album without it appearing on streaming services.

      Since when has being called a 'Brit' been an insult, other than when it comes from unhinged enemies of the UK, many of whom Morrissey has sought to flatter and kowtow to with his preposterous outbursts about Ireland and Argentina. Etc.

      Does he ever write anything nice about anyone, except when someone has recently died?

      So the BRIT awards aren't his cup of tea. So what? They aren't mine either. So I don't watch it.

      He makes out as if low brow music has only sprung up in the last few years. Nonsense. There has always been music for morons and industry back-slapping at events like these.

      Morrissey needs to concentrate on getting a record deal, promoting an album and hiring some decent co-songwriters.

      I don't know who he's trying to impress with these bitter rants on a sycophantic fan site.

      I'm indebted to MIDNITE for triggering a note of solace for Morrissey. He can forget the BRITS because as KrisTeen sings

      "A fantastic failure is more fantastic than your success can ever be! - KristeenYoung"

      Thee BRITS nevear recognesed Kristeen, Morrissey, so dont' poizon your soul by allloweng them to make u sad! Better to be a FANTASTIC FAILURE than to be one of those mass entrertainment 'stars'. Kristeen doesn't need the BrITS nor dsos MORISSEEY!

      The Brit Awards are pure scour and I'm happy to see Moz ranting against it yet again. He could have done it all in one short paragraph though. Obviously he bemoans the death of popular music and who can blame him. When I hear people say 'but you have to admire Simon Cowell for his ingenuity' I want to throttle them. Ant and Dec are shite too and have no place presenting music awards. But the Brits hasn't been watchable since the magnificent Suede broke the microphone back in 1993 after 'Animal Nitrate'. No proper bands left any more. The best we can hope for these days are one hit wonders who couldn't make a good album if their life depended on it. Of course the problem is that their life doesn't depend on it.

      Can't find Morrissey's denunciation of the BRIT awards in 2005 when he was nominated in the category British Male Solo Artist. Can anybody find his immediate rejection of this nomination, prior to the results? Or his denunciation of the Grammys in 92? Again, prior to the results.



      ps: is this his longest rant yet?
