.In an interview with Billboard, Morrissey spoke about his controversial views on eating meat, after he recently compared it to pedophilia. Here are highlights:
On his string of illnesses: "Well, I'm expected to see Easter. It was a bad year. I was in hospitals so frequently that the doctors were sick to death of me, and there's nothing more aging than lying in a hospital bed, trying to recover from hospital food. If your illness doesn't kill you then the hospital food sees you off. That's what it's there for. Anyway, it was my time to go to pieces. Much overdue."
On defending his views that eating meat is like pedophilia: "I don't need to defend my own point of view. When you eat an animal you subject it to spiritual and physical rape, you eats its breasts ... its rump ... you cut off its genitals ... whichever way you care to look at it, eating animals is violence at its most extreme."
On what is influencing his new music: "The good and the bad must be documented. Life is a serious business, so why pretend it isn't? I'm amused by modern pop artists who can only sing about s.e.x ... as if nothing else mattered on the planet."
