As the lead singer for The Smiths, Morrissey was an unparalleled lyricist who helped create several timeless classics like “Ask” and “How Soon Is Now?” More recently, he’s arguably become more famous for his wince-inducing soundbites than his solo output. Here are some messed-up details about Morrissey.

Pro tip, amateur writers! The next time you find yourself plagued by self-doubt, take solace in the fact that your work can’t be any worse than Morrissey’s debut novel.

List of the Lost was published in 2015, hot on the heels of Morrissey’s autobiography. The book was was widely panned and endlessly ridiculed for reasons that will soon become all too apparent. In its breathtakingly scathing review, The Quietus wrote that,

“What you’re actually looking at is some of the most heinously overblown prose printed by a major publishing house in living memory.”

Aside from its general awfulness, List of the Lost caught the world’s attention thanks to a particularly cringe-inducing scene, one that tried to convey a theoretically steamy lovemaking session. Don’t believe us? You should probably savor the passage for yourself. How’s this for purple prose?

“Eliza and Ezra rolled together into the one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation, screaming and shouting as they playfully bit and pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil of…violent rotation…and the pained frenzy of his bulbous salutation extenuating his excitement as it smacked its way into every muscle of Eliza’s body except for the otherwise central zone.”

Oooh… is it getting hot in here?

No. No, it’s not.

Petrus Villela says:

Millennials and Zoomers still to have mental capacity to understand Morrissey

Chris Woods says:

If you don't piss people off you are not really an artist. There are enough dreadful phonies out there.

Carey Parker says:

Morrissey is from a bygone era when university's produced the odd free thinker.

Feña Mond says:

In the past few years he has made some really awful remarks, which I don't agree with; however, I do think that most of his views are accurate but his choice of words is most of the time a bit off. I think he's an expert in creating controversy, whether he does it intentionally or not, but that's also part of his charm. As of me, I rather stick to his music and ignore his opinions, after all it can't be denied that his music is pretty damn good.

Pedro Amaral says:

This stupidity must come from an Trump LOVER!!! But that's probably how he makes his life, distorting the true words… SAD MINDLESS PEOPLE…

Ricks World says:

Johnny Marr was in love with Moz

Eduardo Hernandez says:

robert hingston says:

I don’t agree with half of what Morrissey says however we need more outspoken people like Morrissey who is unpretentious and honest and True to themselves and others

Jas Sab says:

I dont have a problem with any of mozzers thoughts. Viva moz!!!!!

Eric Gunnison says:

In movies it's okay for a scene of fishing and the catching and killing of a fish to cement a pivotal moment. Kurt Cobain said it's okay to kill fish because they don't have feelings. Basically the anti meat movement is attached to what the meat looks like. Killing a fish isn't murder, but killing a deer is.

Paul Baynham says:

So much lazy journalism as per usual. You either get him or you don’t! You clearly don’t! He uses his medium to deliver difficult messages, unlike other plastic manufactured pop, who just tow the line!

Lisa Casey Comedy says:

He’s an extremely talented artist who speaks his mind. Unlike the watered down people pleasers of today. Don’t diss Morrissey. And he’s 100% right about animals.

daniel stavisky says:

So he says what he thinks instead of what is 'politically correct'- how few there are- the man's a genius

today is not yesterday says:

so what we learned here was that Morrissey isn't politically correct.. and quite accurate actually
