Morrissey

Morrissey recently postponed some more tour dates due to food poisoning; in his latest blog post on True To You, he explained the situation and updated fans on his health. “I have returned to Los Angeles and to the expert supervision of my doctor Jeremy Fine, who assures me that I shall be fine (although not in the gossamer, powdery sense) for our upcoming shows in Argentina and Brazil,” writes Morrissey. Read the rest below.

I can’t give words to the sorrow I feel at the loss of perfect Peru. Oh, black cloud. After such a victorious and uplifting welcome of Lima love, the contaminated jinx had its way via a simple restaurant meal of penne pasta and tomato. Three hours later, both I, and security Liam have collapsed with a deadly and delirious bedridden disease. Five days of round-the-clock medical supervision just barely controls the corrosively toxic food poisoning. I know my luck too well. Sorrow replaces joy, and in every dream home a heartache. It could only be me.
I have returned to Los Angeles and to the expert supervision of my doctor Jeremy Fine, who assures me that I shall be fine (although not in the gossamer, powdery sense) for our upcoming shows in Argentina and Brazil. I have absolutely no idea where my beloved Chile has gone. In the heat of cancellations and postponements, the humiliation and mortification I feel on a personal level is too mammoth to be measured. If my spirits climb down any lower I could never again find the dignity to stand upright. We all live at the mercy of biological chance, and although I am not one to take refuge in clichés, I repeat my very servile apologies to any and all who back-packed their way to Peru. Alas, the dark shadow made the same journey.
Each year of life brings us nearer to our decline, but I will continue to seek a listener until I’m dead in a ditch.

  1. I’m pretty sure half of these sentences are just repurposed Morrissey song titles.

  2. I don’t even know what 75% of this means. The only part I understand is that more excuses he runs out of to pull out of shows, the more ambiguously worded his apologies become. It’s food poisoning — Not cancer, man.

  3. I think he is so grossly apologetic here for two reasons:

    1.) It is Morrissey, after all.
    2.) He’s had so many health issues plaguing his tours lately that it must seem like he is in fact dying. Really, it’s just shit luck. I’m sure that Morrissey does feel guilt about the whole debacle as well.

  4. i like that he loves coming to latin america

  5. Man, Morrissey’s prose style is even more annoying than his politics.

    yawn.

  7. This is how Morrissey, still trying to channel Oscar Wilde, explains in too many words that he had explosive diarrhea.

  8. Morrissey, you should to explain clearly what is the truth about all this problem. Penne means penis. You stay right now like an old faged pussy who eat penis human. En pocas palabras, ahora Morrissey queda como un maricón chupapenes.

  9. oh good, more of this. I think he has cancelled 5 different sections of his tour this year. Even when he announced tickets were on sale, the first thing I said was “so how long ago before he cancels?” Sure enough he cancelled, rescheduled, and cancelled it again.

    Just wondering if the dude hates touring and is trying to get down to a minimal schedule, because there’s no f’ing way one man can be sick year-round.
