Morrissey and all his health scares have been the reason the former smiths frontman has not been able to complete an entire tour.
To this date, medical excuses the singer has used have been: Barrett’s esophagus, a bleeding ulcer, double pneumonia, and food poisoning.
But, those are nothing compare to the four times the Moz has faced cancer scares.
In an interview with Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, the singer reveal the scary news, telling the publication that he had four separate encounters in recent years.
“They have scraped cancerous tissues four times already,” Morrissey explained.
In Morrissey style, he followed it up by saying “whatever” and telling the publication “if I die, I die.”
“If I die, then I die. And if I don’t, then I don’t. Right now, I feel good. I am aware that in some of my recent photos I look somewhat unhealthy, but that’s what illness can do. I’m not going to worry about that. I’ll rest when I’m dead.”
He also reveals that doctors have urged him to stop touring, but we all know that Morrissey doesn’t do well with given orders. Besides, like he said, touring is “ingrained” in him.
The European leg of his tour recently began and though we know it sounds horrible, we’re wondering how many dates he’ll actually perform before it gets cancelled like the North American leg.
Morrissey’s new album, World Peace is None of Your Business was released this past Summer and a massive feud between the singer and his former (not former?) record label exploded.
