"Morrissey's Confessions
Soon he will be in our country. Meanwhile, he told us about his heroes, the success he has had throughout his career, the rules of his life and other issues.There are few times when one can approach Steven Patrick Morrissey . Controversial, talented, sincere, sarcastic and vegetarian. The waiting comes alive. "Being patient over time is the best advice I've been given. It's surprising how it all changes, "says the English musician. And it was, he finally spoke.Morrissey is closer than ever, his voice will embrace us in intimate sessions beyond festivals: March 29 at the Citibanamex Auditorium (Monterrey), 31 at the Palacio de los Deportes (Mexico City) and April 4 at the Metropolitan Auditorium (Puebla).That heroic figure will save us from the tedium of this urban life. He will take us to " Suedehead," " Everyday is Like Sunday ," " First of the Gang to Die, " and " You Have Killed Me ." Fortunately, many could be their own heroes."They are those who write well, who speak well and who defend animals. That's the key to everything, "he says.
You live on tour, traveling constantly.Are you worried about your health?Eric Clapton told us about some discomfort he had in his hand and back for his long tours.
Your hearing is diminishing by the high levels of sound in the concerts. The lights fry your hair and your contact lenses, so yes, it's a concern somehow.
Do you have any diet or exercise regimen?
Absolutely not. Never.
What was your favorite book as a child?
A book called The Otterbury Incident (by Cecil Day-Lewis), which is now impossible to find.
What music moves you these days?
Music made by people who consider it a privilege to spend time in the studio. There are not many artists like that!
What do you do to relax?
I never relax.It is impossible.
What is your most English characteristic? 
I speak softly and never scream. My choice of drink is always a tea. I've never had coffee in my life.
What is the most forgiving expense you have allowed?
 I have had enough cars, but in general the money does not interest me.
What did you learn at the beginning of your career that helped you later?
 According to the laws of nature, no matter how high scales, there will always be people who do not support you and you can not do anything about it.
 What are the rules that govern your life?
 I do my best not to relate to people. It only brings problems.
How often do they ask you about a meeting of The Smiths?
 People hardly mention it.
What was the best part of The Smiths' success?
 It's surreal for me to think that it happened. Everything moved very fast. It was never premeditated or false, so they never put us on the radio. Even in 2017, if you listen to The Smiths or Morrissey on the radio it's as if the DJ has committed a radical act. What has been the best and the worst of success in your career as a soloist?
I have enjoyed it very much, artistically. But I have been avoided by labels that I find extremely confusing. I still do not feel the music has been touted.
What would you be doing if you were not a rockstar?
Hopefully he would be dead.
What do you enjoy the most: composing, working in the studio or being on stage?
Being on stage.No minute is like the previous one, there is a kind of chaos and everything can happen. Sometimes it seems more like a commotion on the street than a concert.
What would you have liked to hear about the music industry in the beginning?
 Making money is easy, relatively. But in fact, having it in your hands and disposing of it is incredibly difficult.
Do you consider that in a state of sadness the creativity is taken to the extreme and it gives place to better compositions?
Yes. All classical writers or poets lived in agony or sleeplessness. None played soccer, none was political.
Are you religious? 
I decide what to think.
What aspects of your life did you have to sacrifice?
 I did not exist until I started to sing and people listened to me. There was nothing of value left behind.
How is the production of your biographical tape? 
I'm not involved in the movie. I know almost nothing about it, is it about me?
How has James Baldwin influenced you? 
I am truly impressed by the people who can master the art of public speaking and also by being revolutionaries in doing so. No notes, only with the power of his voice and the effect of his words. I think it's a magnificent gift. James Baldwin owns it.
Your Mexican fans are waiting for a new album, will you surprise them soon?
 It is completely finished. But so far there are no record companies that want to compromise with a Morrissey album. We live in the most banal cultural age.
Finally, what advice would you give your Mexican followers?
Our intelligence has been insulted by the choice of Trump and his administration, but do not resign yourself to not feeling. It can not last. He destroys himself day after day. With God's help and neuroscience, Trump's predicament will be gone soon."

Weird. It doesn't seem like a usual Morrissey interview. I think he was having some fun here.

I must say that this time the questions seem quite good,a lot of interesting stuff in this interview.Im suprised that he never screams-even if he is really angry or happy??Screaming for joy and dancing around the room singing loudly-I hope he does that sometimes. Also I didnt know that being on stage is his favourite thing. :)

Morrissey is still agnostic when it comes to religion it seems, maybe more a believer? He also probably refers to himself saying poets aren't political. But somehow I doubt that is true...especially when it comes to Morrissey! I can't think of a poet or singer more political than Morrissey.
