Morrissey Mocks Kylie Minogue & Bush 7/5/08
British rocker Morrissey used his headlining slot at a U.K. music
festival to mock pop superstar Kylie Minogue's OBE award.
The Australian singer was honored on Thursday (03Jul08) when she was
made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for her
services to music and entertainment.
But former The Smiths frontman Morrissey has expressed his disapproval
of the move, sarcastically telling revelers at the Wireless Festival in
London on Friday (04Jul08) how he was "thrilled to death" about
The singer – dubbed “The Pope of Mope” for his miserable lyrics -
further mocked the star at the event, quipping to the crowd: "I'm sure
you'll agree, it was completely deserved."
And it wasn't only Minogue who vegetarian Morrissey berated at the show
– he also lashed out at U.S. President George W. Bush, and meat-eaters
during his hour-long set.
