“Everything is stringently controlled, obvious and predictable and has exactly the same content.So, we are now in the era of marketed pop stars, which means that the labels fully control the charts, and consequently the public has lost interest.” magazine, you’d either have to be a tasteless fool or an Ed Sheeran fan to deny that Morrissey is making a quite civilized and well-qualified point with regard to “marketed pop stars.” Morrissey then goes on to elaborate his well thought out argument when he vents his disgust at being force-fed a steady diet of nothing in the shape of Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.
Nancy Sinatra has rushed to Morrissey’s defence after the troubled troubadour was savaged somewhat unnecessarily by pop princeling Ed Sheeran in the press.
The war of words between the musical colossus that is Morrissey and the diminutive dullard that is Ed Sheeran began when the mighty Mozza quite reasonably lamented on the state of modern music, and how “It can’t possibly get any worse.” “There are no bands or singers who become successful without overwhelming marketing…no surprise success stories.
Such savagery and venom by Sheeran obviously took Morrissey by surprise, and he has chosen to retain a dignified silence in the face of Sheeran’s toddler like-outburst. The daughter of ol’ blue eyes has called for her old friend to get back in touch.
Morrissey wants Jamie Oliver dead and the unlikely Princess Anne to do the honours. Because the chef sometimes cooks meat, obviously.“It would be a great help if Princess Anne gassed Jamie Oliver,” he told Irish magazine .
“Oliver sticks in my craw and I’d walk a c**ty mile to avoid him and all his works,” wrote Self in a column for “What this society needs is a culture that values its eternal soul above its lemon sole and a form of social justice that doesn’t depend on the tit-beating self-righteousness of charity – with all the patronising bullshit that goes along with this. In a completely unsurprisingly show of morbidness, he also talked about his funeral, saying it will only be upon his death that the media and the public finally give him the respect and appreciation he so desperately needs."They'll all turn up finally ready with praise once I'm out of earshot,” he said.
“He's killed more animals than Mc Donald's.”The singer previously lambasted Oliver for cooking “flesh food” before in January this year.“If Jamie ‘Orrible is so certain that flesh-food is tasty then why doesn’t he stick one of his children in a microwave? He isn’t the only one to have denounced the “wholesome word” of the chef.
In October 2013, Will Self dedicated an entire column detailing the many reasons for his dislike of the man who revived the term “lovely jubbley”.
Thus we are force-fed such as Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, which at least means that things can’t possibly get any worse. There’s no spontaneity now, and it all seems to be unsalvageable.” Morrissey’s comments were met with a rapturous applause by a music loving public who for too long have been randomly ambushed by the spontaneous appearance of Sheeraan and Smith on the airwaves, the internet, and the television.
Like an extremely toxic and viral plague, Sheeran, Smith, Swift, and all the other walking mediocrities of easy listening have seeped into the very cultural fabric of Western society without invite, or recourse to reason. “He was my best mentor in a way because he didn’t have the self-serving thing that Lee [Hazlewood] had.” Obviously having Frank Sinatra’s daughter in his corner is a massive coup for Morrissey in his ongoing punishing bout with the murderous mediocrity of modern music.
