Deerhunter Singer Slams Morrissey

(Radio.com) In a freewheeling new interview with Buzzfeed, Deerhunter frotnman Bradford Cox took every opportunity to bash Morrissey and the Smiths, citing a letter a young Morrissey wrote to British music magazine Melody Maker back in 1976 bashing the Ramones as evidence.

"If I ever meet that guy…whatever!," Cox seethed in the interview. "He makes me want to wear fur. There are Smiths tunes that I find more acceptable than others, but I'd rather just not hear any of them. Frankly, all it took was that one criticism of The Ramones to permanently…you know, if you want to be on that side of the fence, cool.

"This is not an article about Morrissey, as much as he'd like it to be," the controversial Deerhunter frontman continued, "as much as I'm allowing him to permeate the air with his foul and fey musk. His weird, lethargic perfumes."

Even as the interviewer attempted to shift his questions towards the band's Fallon performance and stage shows, Cox took the opportunity to light into the former Smiths frontman yet again.

"So many people try to look so cool, like Morrissey, for example. Or he even refuses to go on TV because he can't control the world, like that Kimmel thing. Because he doesn't agree with someone else, everybody else has to accommodate him," he ranted, referencing the "Meat is Murder" singer famously cancelling a scheduled performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in protest of the show featuring the cast of Duck Dynasty on the same night. "God, Morrissey, honestly! The idea that you're so entitled." Here's not done!
