Morrissey is never one to hold his tongue but he may have taken it a step too far, blasting the likes of Madonna, Beyonce and Justin Bieber for lacking substance as artists while also claiming the world would suffer less wars if more men were gay.
The former Smiths frontman, who is on the road to recovery after battling with “throat problems,” has wasted no time in sharing his views on the world’s most successful musicians in popular culture today, claiming most lack substance while naming and shaming Madonna, ‘Single Ladies’ diva Beyonce and teen bopper Justin Bieber.
“Whether it be Beyoncé or Justin Bieber, we see singers who have absolutely nothing to offer anyone as they walk off stage clutching three Grammys in each hand,” Morrissey told Rookiemag.com.
While Beyonce is the proud winner of an incredible 17 Grammys, Justin, as we all know, has nil. However, they weren’t the only ones in Morrissey’s firing line as he also had some words for Madonna.
“In recent years I saw McDonna live, and no audience member reached up toward her to try to touch her. I see this so often with artists whom we’re told are global stars. It is a big lie,” he said.
Perhaps Morrissey didn’t hear that Madonna is the highest-earning musician of the last 12 months with an income of $34 million! Morrissey’s controversial beliefs didn’t stop there as he went on to claim that more homosexual men is the answer to less wars in the world.
“War, I thought, was the most negative aspect of male heterosexuality. If more men were homosexual, there would be no wars, because homosexual men would never kill other men, whereas heterosexual men love killing other men,” Morrissey said.
“They even get medals for it. Women don’t go to war to kill other women. Wars and armies and nuclear weapons are essentially heterosexual hobbies.”
Wowza! Morrissey certainly doesn’t hold back does he?
