After three decades in the music business, Morrissey announced that he will retire in two more years, at the age of 55. The Smiths’ former frontman is also waiting for his pending lawsuit with NME to go to court in July.
According to Billboard, Morrissey shared the news of his retirement with the magazine JuiceOnline.com. He said: “I am slightly shocked to have gone as far as I have. This is my 30th year, and I’ve aged a lot recently, which is bit distressing for me, as it must be for everyone. The body changes shape and there’s nothing you can do about it. Do I continue as a modern day Andy Williams? I take one hour at a time. We will all probably be blown up by the Syrian government soon, anyway, so it hardly matters in the great scheme of things.”
Looks like aging hasn’t affected Morrissey’s cynical sense of humor.
