Morrissey: The Gay Elvis

Turned up an old issue of 'Observer Music Monthly' yesterday, 'The Gay Issue' from November 2006. Included among the delights was the lovely Rufus Wainwright picking his Top Ten Gay Icons. Mid-table was Morrissey: "Whether he's actually gay or not, he is the gay Elvis." Smashing! Sadly, he then goes on to compare him to Dean Martin and Prince...
Any takers for Morrissey as the gay Elvis?
Personally, in historical terms, I would have pegged Bowie as the gay Elvis, in terms of the seismic effect he had on rock and roll. Literally, I suppose Little Richard is the gay Elvis.
Or maybe the gay Elvis is just....Elvis?

Re: Morrissey: The Gay Elvis.

From top to bottom, soup to nuts, A to Z, I'd take Morrissey's career over Elvis's. Say what you will, Morrissey never ended up doubled over on a toilet drooling pills into the sweaty diapers bunched around his ankles.

I've learned to relax my high expectations for Morrissey over the years, but not that much...Morrissey will continue to age nicely I'm sure. I'm hoping he transforms into Peter O'Toole.

Yes, at least Morrissey doesn't have a Coronel Tom Parker at the moment. :p

It's how I choose to spend most Saturday nights, but that's just me. :squiffy:

Here are the links to Uncleskinny's thread. Gay Elvis? I can see that. Couldn't you see Moz crooning to "The Ghetto?"

You can find the full list (with comment) here...http://observer.guardian.co.uk/omm/s...942438,00.html

He's also mentioned in Miranda Sawyer's article here...http://music.guardian.co.uk/pop/comm...942295,00.html

It's the same old, isn't it? The press and people blabbing about Morrissey's sexuality because he's so jazzed up with his hands, homo erotic photo shoots and all the rest, but there's a big 'but'.... He hasn't actually said that he is a homosexual, and until that day when he utters the words 'I am gay', that's when I'll believe it and not because somebody has said that he is.

However.... If he were or if he is a homosexual then yes, he would/is a gay Elvis. :)

Personally I would have gone with Robbie Williams as The Gay Elvis.

Unfortunately, Robbie Williams is not enough classy to be the gay Elvis
