But I do kinda feel a moral obligation I think to acknowledge the superficiality of my distaste.
I'm glad you added this disclaimer as I was rolling my eyes up to that point. But then my eyes stopped rolling, you know?

How many more times does Morrissey have to prove himself to be a horrible human before people stop giving him a pass?

He's a jerk all around and has been forever.

I remember seeing him in concert at Coachella a decade or so ago, and he stopped the concert cold because he smelled a whiff of hamburgers being cooked or something like it, he started gagging on stage, and said he couldn't go on, while pontificating about the "meat is murder". (Eventually after several minutes he did continue the gig.) What a scene that was. Look, you may or may not be against "meat",  but be a professional at a major music festival already. He is a diva and a jerk all around,

what did he do now?

i believe he has probably cancelled more shows than he has played at this point.
i have never seen him live, but would.....knowing full well i'd have to mute his between song editorials.
it's funny how you can basically agree with someone and still feel deeply annoyed by them.

it's like a friend of mine who saw neil young a few years ago. he has always liked neil young and pretty much agrees with his politics, however, neil performed most of a show consisting of mediocre songs shitting on monsanto. again, pretty much agree with that in theory but a good concert it does not make. my friend said "for the love of god, just play cinnamon girl"

as an artist, i can understand the need to try something different, challenge yourself, and flex new muscles but it comes at a cost if the work doesn't stand on its own and alienates your fanbase.

He performed on Fallon wearing a For Britain pin.  And he’s been talking up that party for a few years now.  He has long crossed the point of being maybe just a prickly guy who says borderline racist things to get a rise out of people, or like maybe someone who doesn’t fully understand politics and should shut their mouth, or just drugged out of his mind,

He’s an active right-wing racist dickhead.  Fuck him.

Just for the record... Morrissey is coming to the Fraze Pavilion (near Dayton) in September, with Interpol opening. That perked up my ears... until I say the ticket prices... $69 for the lawn GA, and $110 for the seats up closer. Are you kidding me? Thanks, but no thanks.

I can see Massive Attack play "Mezzanine" in September.... for $150 per ticket. I'm all "dayum, Massive Attack" and then I'm all "ouch....ticket prices."

I think it's probably sold out here, too. Those are the "verified resale" prices
