Morrissey finds meat’s smell ‘offensive’!April 21st, 2009 - 2:30 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 21 (ANI): Rocker Morrissey recently walked off stage while performing at Coachella festival in California after declaring he could “smell burning flesh”.
The vegetarian singer was performing at the event on April 17, but apparently took offence to the smell of barbecues.
Later festivalgoers reported his comments on Internet forums, and claimed that the committed vegetarian added: “And I hope to God it’s human,” reported The BBC.
A contributor to the Coachella message board said Morrissey was “totally choked up and gagged on his way through Some Girls and left the stage only to come back and gag some more”.
Another fan said that she was “disappointed” with Morrissey’s set mainly because of his objection to the smell of meat, despite many were defending the artist’s stand.
A contributor from fan site Morrissey-Solo said: “I know a lot of people think he’s being precious about the smell of burning flesh, but I wholeheartedly agree with Morrissey; it’s hard to be joyous and uplifting when you’re confronted with something that you find so offensive.”
Others, who performed at the annual event included Sir Paul McCartney, The Killers and The Cure. (ANI)
