Morrissey In Bitter Lyrics Switch Shocker

Too soonIt's tough to see the poets of your youth turn into the mordant cynics of middle-age. The Times of London's man at Morrissey's Albert Hall show is shocked and disappointed by an alteration of the sacred text:

The sea-change was confirmed by a retooling of another Smiths classic, the ode to loneliness How Soon is Now. Stark lyrical changes to the song included the line: "There's a club if you'd like to go, you could meet somebody who can actually stand you/ So you go and you stand on your own and leave on your own. What a big surprise."

Morrissey is also described as bloated and "looking unhealthy and uncomfortable." Maybe he looked unhealthy and uncomfortable on the outside because unhealthy and uncomfortable was how he felt on the inside.

Also: Morrissey sans facelift still looks 1500% better than Ms. Rupert Everett, with Katherine-Helmond-in-Brazil facelift. Just sayin'.

No kidding. 15-year-old me with the giant crush on Mr. Everett (yes, I was really clueless) would be appalled.

There's been a little complication with my complication.

Ouch, Moz, I'm not quite ready to morph my teenage mopiness into middle aged bitterness, thankyouverymuch.

Regardless, hope you feel better soon.

Don't know when that show was be he was taken to the hospital Sunday.

Great, just great. Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

The Queen is tired and needs a rest.

He's going about things the wrong way.

are you trying to start another argument about Morrissey?

sox (#652)

but was the event itself still successful?

He used to be a poet and now he's just a tool.

This reminds me of the time Mick altered, “Black girls just want to get fucked all night, I just don’t have that much jam,” to “<African women dig equality, I try and pamper them with gifts.”

…to appear on the front
of the Daily Mail
dressed in a top hat and tail?

and when the flames rose
to her Roman nose
her iPhone started to melt?

And if a new Toyota Prius
crashes into us…
