You are, of course, absoultely right. He has every right to make a personal comment about Bowie's current output and career. I think the problem that everyone's picking on, though, is that he's overgeneralising his own position to include Bowie fans in general who he couldn't possibly speak for. True, there were a lot of people criticising the album and tour here (myself included), who would probably agree with the statement that Bowie is presenting a fairly populist front at the moment. However, Morrissey then goes on to contradict that assertion, claiming that noone's interested in Bowie's current direction, which is clearly wrong if sales figures are anything to go by. I think Reality is a dull album but I know I'm in the minority because it has fulfilled its aim of acheiving a certain amount of popularity, at least moreso than just about all of the albums from the past decade. Still, I think most of this has been covered before.
