MORRISSEY: Music lovers are absolutely sick to death of the way it’s manipulated and the way people who have nothing to offer are pushed forward.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Like who? Are you thinking of stuff like American Idol?
MORRISSEY: Idol is an easy target as [the contestants] are really just very simple children who are manipulated by truly awful grown-up people. But I certainly think B. Spears is … the devil. The way she projects herself and the fact that she is so obviously vaucous. I think it’s such a shame that she became so influential to very small children. Most of the faces I see on the covers of American music magazines are just dreadful — people with nothing to offer the world at all.
Vacuous? My Britney?
