Morrissey: 'If men were homosexual, there would be no wars'

MORRISEY says that homosexual men would never kill other men, and has criticised popular culture icons in a magazine interview.

The former Smiths frontman has discussed war, homosexuality and popular culture in a controversial interview.

Morrissey told Rookie magazine that war is the "most negative aspect of male heterosexuality", and called conflict a "hetrosexual hobby".

He said: "If more men were homosexual, there would be no wars, because homosexual men would never kill other men, whereas heterosexual men love killing other men.

"They even get medals for it. Women don’t go to war to kill other women. Wars and armies and nuclear weapons are essentially heterosexual hobbies."

Morrissey also criticised popular culture, saying that the Sex Pistols would "never again be allowed to slip through" and that pop musicians who set their own terms for success didn't exist in 2013.

Referencing Beyoncé and Justin Bieber, Morrissey said that modern singers have "nothing to offer anyone as they walk off stage clutching three Grammys in each hand."

Morrissey has recently been suffering from illness, causing him to cancel live dates. He refused to appear on American chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday after he learned that cast members of a reality show about a duck hunting business would also be on the show.

An ardent vegetarian, Morrissey has successfully requested that the 20,000 capacity venue the Staples Centre will serve only meat-free food for the first time for his concert there on Friday.
