Get ready to feel old, 80’s kids- Morrissey says he is retiring due to old age.
Morrissey revealed his plans to retire (an intention which musicians often reconsider after they’ve been out of the game for a year or so) in an interview, citing aging as a reason he no longer wishes to continue on moping to massive crowds worldwide. The site with which Morrissey interviewed was JuiceOnline, and the interviewer asked him if he planned to continue on with plans to retire after 55.
Morrissey said at 53, he feels old, and still doesn’t see himself forging ahead as a performer past the age of 55:
“Yes. 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.”
Whatever, Morrissey, you are totally hotter at 53 than ten Justin Timberlakes. The iconic singer continues:
“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 [laughs].”
