The Idiot (Morrissey calls Bowie "A Business")  

No, I'm not referring to the Iggy Pop album. I'm talking about Morrissey once again.

BOWIE NOT MOZ'S STARMAN!


MORRISSEY has launched a scathing attack on DAVID BOWIE during his first television interview in 17 years.

He labeled Bowie "showie", claiming that the veteran artist was a "business’". He went on to say that the public only fell in love with Ziggy Stardust, and the visuals for Ziggy were dreamt up by someone else.

Morrissey also tore strips off the artist in an interview in the April edition of GQ magazine.

"(He is) not the person he was. He is no longer David Bowie at all. Now he gives people what he thinks will make them happy, and they're yawning their heads off. And by doing that, he is not relevant. He was only relevant by accident."

The attack on the veteran artist will be broadcast tonight (May 14) on 'The Jonathan Ross Show', where the former Smiths frontman also performs two songs, current single ‘Irish Blood, English Heart’ and the classic 1988 single ‘Everyday Is Like Sunday’.

Relations were not always tense between the two, as Bowie covered the Morrissey track ‘I Know It's Going To Happen Someday' on his Black Tie White Noise album in 1993, and asked Morrissey to join him on his 1995 tour, though Morrissey left the tour before it was over.

Morrissey’s new album ’You Are The Quarry’ is released on Monday (May 17), following the release of the single ‘Irish Blood, English Heart’, which is heading for a Top Ten entry on Sunday's chart.

once a wanker, always..... new [re: tonyinsf]  

If Morrissey's WAY TOO long and undistinguished career was one quarter as brilliant as one *period* of Bowie's career, he may just be qualified to make these repetitive statements (which I guess he thinks are 'controversial' and therefore may bring him the extra publicity that he so desperately needs to sell his crap records). But..... it's not. So he should probably just shut up.

Re: The Idiot new [re: tonyinsf]  

To put it VERY bluntly (and i am rather drunk right now) Moressey is a complete fucking arsehole and needs to piss off, as he is and always was crap. He can't commoent on the king of pop and rock as he's never reached the highs that bowie has and never will because he's shite. I HATE HIM.

Hmm.
I wonder if Bowie regrets having covered "I know it's gonna happen someday" on BTWN, after hearing those comments.

I sure do regret he did. Goddamn awful piece of crap song.

Well let me echo Pablo's post, with yet another Hear! hear, i commend you on your words

Morrisey is an old prat, the guys had it, have you seen the embarressing album and single cover!, lord knows what era he's living in, silly old fool

This is the only way he can catch the public eye, by slagging off Mr Bowie.

Morrisey, eat your heart out

Polyphemus new [re: tonyinsf]  

Wow! Here are the comments from a Morrissey site! Without any editing at all!

Moz is slagging off Bowie in the NME this week it seems. And on the J Ross show. I quite like 70s Bowie stuff but he has been gone for a long time. In fact when Bowie played Glasgow in 1995, Moz was the support so me and few others got tickets - as you do. When Mozzer pulled out of the show, (fell out with Bowie) we had a decision - see Bowie or get a refund and go down the pub. No contest. The looks we got at the box office as they gave us our dosh back was hilarious!!!
Would have been a good double bill though, but without Moz there was no point really!

For me if Bowie had packed it in around 1975 then he would have been a God but much of what he did in the early 1970's has been wiped out for me by some of the dross he has done since(and let's face it there has been a lot)

I was hoping Moz would grow out of slagging off other artists.It's a side of his character that I don't like.

I think Bowie was such a hero to him and when they finally met and toured and it went horribly wrong it was a huge disappointment to Morrissey.

Johnny


Wouldn`t disagree with you on Tin Machine.That was a blip!

Top Boy


Hours was a large pile of shit. Heathen was a bit better - like a small pile of shit. I lost my faith in Bowie so I didn't even bother to buy Reality.

Re: Old time loser. new [re: diamondogz74]  

I got a free subscription to Entertainment Weekly, and when it came in the post today, it has a feature on Morrissey. Sure enough, there he goes slagging off Bowie in the interview. Same old rehash. He does have one nice thing to say though: "One thing to Bowie credit: He has refused to accept a knighthood." But then he follows it up by saying, "Probably because he wants to be, I dunno, Lady-in-Waiting."

Who needs AMG? [re: hangontoyourself]  

Yes.

And here's what you said about Morrissey:

he is and always was crap. He can't commoent on the king of pop and rock as he's never reached the highs that bowie has and never will because he's shite.

So, to redress the balance, what is it you don't like about We Are the Quarry or Maladjusted?
