Never a dull moment in Morrissey's world.
Best of the Ramones
Also, Morrissey announced that he was dropped by his record label, Harvest Records... then within weeks, his latest album, World Peace is None of Your Business, was quickly removed from all digital outlets, including iTunes and Spotify.
Then, a few weeks ago, Morrissey announced a world tour. Touring would be a great way to promote the new album ... which is not available anywhere.

The latest Stuart Murdoch film God Help the Girl is hitting a small selective theaters and On Demand, via Amplify and iTunes, tomorrow, September 5th.
The film stars Emily Browning, and in one scene, you can see Browning wearing The Smiths' Meat is Murder T-Shirt. Browning is no stranger to The Smiths, as she's heard singing "Asleep" in Sucker Punch (2011).

From writer/director Stuart Murdoch (lead singer of beloved indie pop group Belle & Sebastian) comes the most delightfully different musical of the year. Eve (Emily Browning) is a catastrophe—low on self-esteem but high on fantasy, especially when it comes to music. Over the course of one Glasgow summer, she meets two similarly rootless souls: posh Cass (Hannah Murray) and fastidious James (Olly Alexander), and together they decide there's only one thing to do: form a pop group.
Check out the scene, featuring the T-Shirt:
I was watching the "David Bowie is" documentary for review and noticed that Morrissey was listed as "influenced" section of the Periodic Table of David Bowie by Paul Robertson. Among other influenced musicians on there: Lady Gaga and Jarvis Cocker (who appeared as guest speaker on the "David Bowie is" film).
I find the whole Bowie/Morrissey thing interesting, at one point, the two were close friends. Morrissey covered "Drive-In Saturday" live and Bowie appeared with Morrissey in New York in 1992 to cover T.Rex's "Cosmic Dancer" and Bowie covered Morrissey's "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday" ... but the first time I heard that the two were not friends anymore was in 2013 when Bowie issued a block to use his image for the re-mastered version of "The Last of the Famous International Playboys".
Those interested in David Bowie, the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is bringing their "David Bowie is" exhibition to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (MCA) on September 23, 2014.
David Bowie is... not friends with Morrissey.
