I must ask you, what right does the fact that you are a popular and successful popstar give you to comment on political and…

"Well, I feel that, if popular singers don’t say these things, who does? We can’t have any faith in playwrights any more, we can’t have any faith in filmstars, young people don’t care about those things, they’re dying arts. And if you say, what ‘right’ do you have, the implication there to me is that popular music is quite a low art, it should be hidden, it can be there but let’s not say anything terribly important, let’s just make disco records or whatever. So I really feel that we do have an obligation and I know that people respect it and they want it and it’s working to great effect." - Morrissey, 1985

Morrissey - Earth is the Loneliest Planet of All (live at San Jose, May 7 2014)
