Morrissey Central THE RIGID RULES AND RESTRICTIONS OF ‘DIVERSITY' (November 25, 2020)

THE RIGID RULES AND RESTRICTIONS OF ‘DIVERSITY’
November 25, 2020



" When the new BMG Executive says he now wants a label of 'diversity', what he
actually means is he wants all of his artists to be exactly the same. Make no mistake, the
word 'diversity' is already trailing in the dust as an overused catchword that in fact means tighter restrictions and a fierce
exclusion of individuality. I have been dumped by BMG because I am TOO diverse for them. They cannot cope with an
artist such as Morrissey … who is, in fact, the very essence of diversity … whose lyrical concerns are multiple, different,
and who has been writing about all of our human differences since 1982. So, please don't be fooled into thinking the
word 'diversity' means varied and open; it has been warped to mean exactly the opposite. With these absolutely
incomprehensibly senseless new guidelines, I'll be surprised if BMG still exists in 18 months time. Or, if they do,
they'll be a label that no true artist would want to sign to. Perhaps this is what BMG prefers - a roster of artists
who are so diverse that you'll never be able to distinguish one from the other?"
Morrissey, November 2020.


"There are artists who feel abandoned by the record business yet are still producing new music which connects with an audience." Hartwig Masuch, BMG.

Indeed. The poor wee multi- millionaire, far right endorsing, borderline racist soul. How deserving he is of all our sympathy!

All the accusations are bollocks. Storms in tiny teacups.

And he does deserve sympathy... and a guide to marketing.

Viva Morrissey ❤

Well yes, sorry to hear about your mother and your dog, but unless you too have written dozens of songs that have changed/saved people's lives (maybe you have!) then that's why so few of us care about your personal tragedies (or, indeed, mine) - and why we do care about Morrissey's.
My point was that i don't expect people to care about my personal tragedies, and the fact that you think because someone is a celebrity they deserve kid glives while dealing with grief, says a lot about how you put a dipshit like morrissey on a pedestal and consider him superior to yourself all because he long long ago wrote some decent songs. Thats pretty sad. As is anyone, including morrissey, contending that in any way he is "diverse".

1.44 million people died from covid 19 this year. There are 1.3 billion catholics in the world, he wasn't living in england in 1570 when they were burning catholics at the stake. And the very idea that his possible homosexuality makes him diverse is laughable. He lives in goddamn los angeles. You can't throw a stick in LA without encountering a lgbtq- its not diverse. Even his style of music is not diverse. And for mr. I'm confused why white people are privileged try googling white privilege. I guess you just spaced out during the blm protests this year. Morrissey is a self obssessed self deluded asshole of the highest caliber, and the apologists on this site making excuses for him are some of the saddest losers ever to roam the earth. Morrissey would not even spit on you if you were on fire, yet you defend his every delusional "i am a victim" rant

What's peculiarly depressing about this comment is not its content, rather that a moderator looked at this comment and thought that it would be a valuable contribution to this website. And then approved it.

I guess the only valuable contributions to this website are lamenting poor wee morrissey and the terrible misfortune he and he alone have suffered since time began

It's the same people complaining about the banning of the word 'f-a-g-g-o-t' in Fairytale of New York. They don't give a shit about diversity - they simply want the ability to carry on being offensive to minorities. And yet they try to dress it up otherwise. There'e nothing new here, just right-wing arseholes being, and wanting to be offensive to people less able to defend themselves. Cowards and bullies the lot of them.

Dear f**cking God, are you really as stupid as your post suggests? Are you really so f**cking stupid that you think an historical character's dialogue is offensive, and grounds for censorship? Are you really, seriously that f**cking stupid?

Good luck with your campaign to ban every other work of art in history that contains offensive terminology. Including Shakespeare, the Bible, and Dickens.

Are you a fan of Morrissey? Morrissey has been through a huge amount in his life. I see him as a strong survivor though not as a victim.

The LGBTQ+ community still has a long way to go. Sadly, there is still prejudice about this community.

Morrissey doesn't talk about his sexuality much but he says that he is "humasexual". People have thought that he might be bisexual. When Morrissey was growing up in the 1960s being gay was still illegal and not really talked about.

Morrissey has talked about his clinical depression and debilitating anxiety long before it was fashionable to talk about mental health problems. It is very serious and severe and does count as a disability.

I'm not a doctor or a psychologist or a psychiatrist. Morrissey has said that he has always been painfully shy. Some think he might be on the autistic spectrum although it was never officially diagnosed to my knowledge. When Morrissey was growing up in the 1960s very little was known about autism spectrum disorders.

Morrissey has also talked about his physical health issues.

Things have not been easy for Irish Catholics living in England. They used to have signs outside pubs which said "No Irish, No Blacks and No Dogs". The IRA used to bomb parts of England so people with Irish Catholics roots were given a really hard time. Morrissey's family are from the Republic of Ireland not Northern Ireland but he would of been aware of the troubles and the prejudice. People came to live in England from Ireland with the hope of a better life but it wasn't always better.

Morrissey still spends a lot of time in Manchester and Cheshire and has stayed true to his roots. He also travels a lot to places like LA and Switzerland. Having money doesn't bring happiness! Morrissey doesn't have any children of his own and that can bring sadness and pain. Morrissey has never married and with that brings loneliness.

Morrissey is still working-class even though he has made money. He will never be fully accepted by the Royal family, the aristocracy or the university educated upper middle-class and middle-class people. See the song "Working Class Hero" by John Lennon.

The house and working-class area where Morrissey grew up in Manchester has been knocked down by the local council in Manchester. A lot of it was council houses. Morrissey's school days sound like they were a nightmare and he was abused. Also he is from a broken home his parents got divorced which is always hard on the children.

This year has been really tough for Morrissey his beloved mother who was his life has died and his cat Dude died. Now he doesn't have a record contract. There is prejudice in the music industry about older men. If you aren't 21 it seems they view you as too old it is terrible. Older male artists have a lot to give in the music industry.

A huge amount of LGBT+ & Irish Catholic history appears to have passed you by.

And he hasn't lived in LA for years.

He was born LA dummy and lives in Malibu in an undisclosed location that people in California would never divulge because of delusional loonie stalkers like you.

Stop referencing Roman Catholicism and posting photos of Catholic saints. You are a Brit Proddy and mocking California's Son.

I said it before but @Uncleskinny has a White Savior Complex of epic proportions. You see, these people are "less able to defend themselves," in his eyes and so he's here, on the fansite of someone he detests, to save them. He's the only one who can do it. His posts here will bring justice and equality to the world, apparently.

When you’re lying in a ditch covered in maggots, I’ll let every anti-racist know so they can come take a piss and shit on your carcass. No one will mourn you but all will laugh at you. This is our world. Those who support racists like Morrissey are the enemy. 🎯

Oh, I don't think he's superior to myself as a person (I'm a mess, he would appear to be a total mess) but he's much superior (absurdly so) in terms of being a writer, a singer, and making a difference to people's lives. I'm honestly not into idol worship but he made a HUGE difference to my life when I was a desperate teenager, so that's why I'm sympathetic to his melodramatic mourning. If you feel that's "pretty sad" then...fair enough!
