 "Irish blood, English heart

This I'm made of

There is no one on Earth I'm afraid of

And no regime can buy or sell me"

Morrissey is a British singer and lyricist who first became known when he emerged in the early 80s as the lead singer of The Smiths. He went solo shortly after the breakup of the group in 1987 and has been going strong ever since.

His controversial opinions about subjects ranging from immigration to vegetarianism, as well as his contrary and somewhat arrogant nature, mean that he is very much the type you either love or hate. Although misanthropic, he is charming and genuinely affectionate towards devotees and the few people who have gained his trust.

Many are of the opinion that his music has a lot of subtext, though Moz himself has said that he believes that sexual orientation doesn't matter. Indeed, his lyrics tend to be gender- (and thus orientation-) neutral. Despite - or perhaps due to - his desire for privacy, debate still rages on as to his sexual orientation. Is he gay? Bisexual? Asexual? The best answer is perhaps simply that he's Morrissey.

His fans tend to be very loyal, much to the annoyance of the music press and some non-fans.
