We're guessing Morrissey can feel the soil falling over his head: The singer says he won't do any more print interviews after facing backlash for his comments reportedly defending Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein.
As reported by SPIN, Moz got in hot water last week following his apparent defense of Spacey and Weinstein's sexual misconduct allegations as awkward attempts at romance. “Anyone who has ever said to someone else, 'I like you,' is suddenly being charged with sexual harassment,” the Smiths frontman told Germany's Spiegel Online. “You have to put these things in the right relations. If I can not tell anyone that I like him, how should he ever know?”
Mozzer doubled down on his puzzling mitigation this week, telling The Sunday Times, “You must be careful as far as 'sexual harassment' is concerned, because often it can be just a pathetic attempt at courtship.”
Well, it looks like Morrissey is feeling the heat from his comments on the Spacey and Weinstein claims—he told his audience at a recent Chicago concert that he won't be participating in further print interviews.
“Let me just say this: That was the last print interview I will ever do,” the singer says in a live clip on Instagram. “And unless you see the words form in my mouth and then you see the words or hear the words come out of my mouth—please, if you don’t see that, I didn’t say it.” Watch the video here.
