It occurred to me, and a few of the others, that perhaps Morrissey would do/wear/say something on last night's Colbert Report, so this morning I rushed to watch it on YouTube.
The Colbert interview itself offered NOTHING new, and I thought Stephen Colbert was both rude and incredibly stupid, but I later learnt that Colbert is a 'parody' talk show host, a little along the lines of Alan Partridge. Having learnt this, I re-watched the interview, and found it far more enjoyable, and very funny, as Colbert asked 'cliche' questions, and made the sort of 'cliche' comments we've all come to expect from talk show hosts. It just goes to show what a thin line it is between reality and parody, but of course, those who follow MorrisseysWorld, ALREADY know that!
Before the Colbert show started, one of Morrissey's roadies, Joseph Joannides (@JosephJoannides), posted a photo on twitter. It shows the band doing a sound check, but it's interesting to see that Boz is wearing the MUGGER t-shirt that ALL the band later wore on the show. It's a bit like David Beckham turning up for a football match already dressed in his football kit!
BOZ IN 'PLAYING KIT' - OBAMA ON KEYBOARD?
Here are Morrissey's responses to the cliche subjects raised in the interview:
On being a living legend - "(legend) means something that might be true and might be false, so it doesn't really apply."
On the Queen's diamond jubilee - "sixty years of dictatorship."
On the Queen being 'YOUR Queen' - "I am not a subject."
On Pippa Middleton - "She's horrendous."
When Morrissey asked Colbert if HE had a royal family, Colbert replied "yes, it's called the Romney's", to which Moz said nothing, he just stared into the camera. It was hilarious.
THE MAN WHOSE WORDS HAVE SAID SO MUCH TO SO MANY, SAYS IT ALL, BY SAYING NOTHING
(Is it just me, or are Mozzer's eyes a little hypnotic in that picture?)
On a Smiths reunion - Colbert said, "You guys could cash in huge", to which Morrissey replied, "Not EVERYBODY is a fat old slag."
On being vegetarian - "animals are nicer than humans, they're conscious beings." "If you stick your grandmother in an oven, she will probably be tasty, but is that any reason to eat your grandmother?"
MRS RAT SENIOR - TASTY
On the album and song Meat is Murder - Colbert said, "when I hear that, I just think murder is delicious." When I watched the interview the first time, I thought that Colbert was just an idiot for making such a comment, but KNOWING he's playing a satirical character makes this line quite funny, and it is interesting to see Morrissey smirking, he TOTALLY gets the parody humour. Morrissey responded to this by saying "to a REALLY intelligent being, murder is NOT delicious", so Mozzer STILL managed to make his point!
After the interview, Morrissey sang 'People Are The Same Everywhere' and 'I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris', but the only POSSIBLE link to the MorrisseysWorld phenomenon, is Morrissey wearing a number 22 on his Mexico football shirt, with '22' being the number of original BLUE ROSE members, but he's worn that shirt before, so I'm not convinced that it was the 'little something' that Our Mozzer has planned. Tomorrow I shall scan YouTube and lOOk for a 'little something' else.
WE ARE RON'S 22 - MOZ IN 'THAT' SHIRT WITH A PILE RIDDEN VENTRILOQUIST
Tonight, Morrissey plays the first of three sold out New York shows, and the BLUE ROSE SOCIETY are hoping that Moz WON'T be able to resist the charms of Kyle Douglas (@mozkidkyle), who will no doubt be on his father's shoulders, right at the front, BLUE ROSE in hand.
KYLE AND HIS SPECIALLY BOUGHT BLUE ROSE
And WHAT leisure centre is Morrissey playing in tonight? Radio City Music Hall on 6th Avenue! It would appear that there is no desperate need to become a fat slag JUST yet!
