Morrissey on Colbert

The combination of Stephen Colbert and Morrissey is such a stark, extreme contrast between two very different forms of archness that I’m surprised the universe didn’t find some incredibly withering way to explode when the two of them sat down across from each other. During their interview, Colbert baited Morrissey about both his hatred for the royal family and his refusal to reunite with Johnny Marr. And honestly, it’s deeply refreshing to see (1) an interviewer who doesn’t fall all over Morrissey and (2) a Colbert guest who doesn’t strain to be in on the joke. On the show, he also sang “People Are The Same Everywhere” and, as an online bonus, “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris.” Watch the interview and both songs below.

Now someone please make a GIF wall of Morrissey reaction shots.

  1. Morrissey’s eyes should win a prize.

  2. He was such a douche, far more entertaining than the average Colbert guest

  3. Just when I think that Morrissey couldn’t come across as anymore of a dick, he surprises me. And people are shocked that Johnny Marr doesn’t want to reunite with him. Well done, Steven Colbert, great interview.

  4. This was a classic interview. It was great that Colbert wasn’t afraid to poke fun at him. And to his credit, he rolled with it.
