Morrissey ‘Slams Beyonce For Her Choice Of Handbags’
Morrissey is known for his outspoken views and this time the veteran singer has lashed out at Beyonce for her choice in handbags, according to a new report.
Morrissey hit the stage in Los Angeles on Friday night, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, he took the opportunity to blame Beyonce, claiming that her fashion choices were leading to the extinction of rhinos.
His comments then led on to a performance of his track ‘Meat Is Murder’, the title track from The Smith’s 1985 LP.
In the recent months, Morrissey has had harsh words for a lot of other celebrities, including Victoria and David Beckham, Paul McCartney and not to mention Kate Middleton.
The Smiths singer was set to appear on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last week but decided to cancel after hearing that cast members from ‘Duck Dynasty’ were also set to appear.
In a statement, Morrissey explained that he “cannot morally be on a television program where the cast members of ‘Duck Dynasty’ will also be guests.”
The family earned their riches through duck hunting, which Morrissey is firmly against.
“As far as my reputation is concerned, I can’t take the risk of being on a show alongside people who, in effect, amount to animal serial killers,” he said.
Morrissey famously demanded that the Staples Center go meat-free for his performance, which has apparently rubbed Sir Paul McCartney up the wrong way.
Talking to THR, he said: “I was amused to hear that [McCartney] was very angry that Staples had said yes to me but no to him, when really, he should be happy for any victory on behalf of the animals.
“I know he works tirelessly for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals [PETA], but he also loves the British royals, whose treatment of animals is abysmal. The Queen herself wears enough fur to blanket most of Russia. He also once sang ‘Give Ireland back to the Irish,’ which was directed at the Queen. Well, she refused, and she still refuses, yet Sir Paul gives her the thumbs up! If he cared passionately about animals, he’d return his knighthood.”
