Morrissey Central: "RW." (April 5, 2020)

I said " almost desperate". The social media posts, relying on paid hands and words from a tribute act, to act as his defence. To me that looks desperate.
Who the hell thought it was a good idea to post the words of a tribute act?
It just looks very bad- also, the chinese comment was just one of long line of remarks, to be honest most overlooked it . The Observer played their hand and mostly the fan base shrugged.
It was the For Britain , UKIP stuff that rampt everything up . So the post by Viva moz is moot.
So whoever posted it on Moz Central just made Moz look stupid for no reason.
Like the Robbie post to me its another example of a stupid post on M Central. It wasn't even really Robbie giving a tribute it was him doing a crappy impression , after someone suggested a record.
He also done Oasis etc , you dont see Liam or Noel bloody posting stuff.
Maybe its Sam , Sam is like a Robbie type person isn't he.
I still think Moz is great , however its gonna take awhile for him to make up lost ground- sales wise. I just hope he still releases music . I only care about sales in as much as its a factor in him releasing more music .
I have nothing against Robbie and Rick , as people . I just think there are bigger and better fish to fry .
Big difference between Barlow, Williams..... I can remember my hating take that, then , the penny dropped with Gary..... their is no doubt, Gary can sit at a piano, with , her from Ababa, Elton John, who ever, even lulu, and I was gonna slag her, but no, she's still a live act.....we all know robbie is a decent guy......he aint that far off moz you know.... moz has one thing over robbie, he writes his own lyrics, and moz gets him self surrounded with real musicians, so thats two, and three, moz and the band tour togeter ECT,ECTI agree, I like him too, as a person . Im just talking about as a pop star , I have no interest .
This is the trouble if you list your whys of why you dislike a pop star , it can seem mean and "hater" like.
I don't know him, from what I hear, he's a "nice guy" but you know my pub landlord is a nice guy, doesn't mean I'd rate him as a pop star .
The pop star thing is very pretend, as you know. its all made up. So let's put it like this, Robbie doesn't make art, he makes a pop product . Morrissey makes art ,well he used to anyway .
These days there isnt a million miles from what Morrissey does and what gary barlow and robbie does.
However the difference is in the voice. There is a truth in Morrissey's voice. There is zero truth in Robbies .
I actually think some morrissey fans have forgot just how good morrissey used to be and what he was about- not talking about you baz, now where is my brush?
Or some one who lives in India , for 3 billion shillings a day equall to 10p a day...... don't mention India Nerak for f*** sake..... pippy (I hate the world) shall throw her green smoke and appear on here like the wicked witch of the west........ I'll get you my pretty..... and your f***ing little dog too...HA,HA,HA,HAI doubt Moz pays much attention to his social media. It looks cobbled together, probably by SER or someone in-house who isn't very good at that sort of thing.
MMMM Idon't know Rw work, but if the wants to look like Moz...Bowie once called Robbie " cruise ship entertainment " which is spot on .
My point is Moz at one point was way up there, true legend status. Not far from Bowie and Lennon status, in a way . He will be again, in the end.
Not at the moment though . People thinking its a good idea Robbie and Rick may cover his work, is a bit sad. I agree Moz is a fan to a wide range of people but its a bit of a come down, sorry if that makes me a music snob.
It's like Liam G once said " Robbie is alright , he's just shit" . To me pop stars like Robbie and Rick are crap. Bland peoples music.Thats not to say I dislike them as people.
Robbie has spent the last 20 years trying to copy, Morrissey . Stealing lines from songs, copying photo poses and so on, even now getting plastic surgery- when Moz said he thought some of Robbies pictures were good, he probably meant the ones trying to be like him, as a joke.
From what I can make out , there is no real understanding of Morrissey there . Robbie just wants to be like him, to have his cred.Like he tried with Oasis and Queen.
I took your post as a starting off point, I was saying I wouldn't be surprised , if at some point in the future Morrissey has to rely on opening for acts like Robbie, in the UK.
I also wouldn't be surprised if Bobby (short for Robert) ...is about Robbie, drug issue etc , due to running from his gayness.
Not attacking you or anyone else. Just spouting off , as like most of the work Im stuck in.
By the way , on reflection, I dont think Robbie looks like Morrissey at all .Rob looks like a cross between Elton John and Grant Mitchell
Or some one who lives in India , for 3 billion shillings a day equall to 10p a day...... don't mention India Nerak for f*** sake..... pippy (I hate the world) shall throw her green smoke and appear on here like the wicked witch of the west........ I'll get you my pretty..... and your f***ing little dog too...HA,HA,HA,HA
Can't stop playing, Hovis on a bingo chain...... I think looking into Bobby Hatfield, death , Bobby must be about him, died 2003 found by his musical partner bill medley and manager Dusty Harvey..... found him dead just before a show........... so Bobby don't you think they know........ was probably unearthed by a super sluth well before me on here, but at least , we, we might just know who Bobby is........ as in Autobiography the Ritchous brothers were his , well gory bits....... years later to be sung by moz and bowie, well maybe not
they have never been friends. Where the hell do you people get your info form?
Morrissey didnt say he liked his look/image. He said some of the photos are nice.
Also this was Robbie singing lots of songs not just Morrissey songs .
So its hardly him giving a great defence. No whatmean
