Morrissey was recently interviewed by the Australian paper Courier Mail. Like most of Moz's recent interviews, it was conducted via email. Morrissey explained to the paper that does that now (post-NME libel drama) so his words can not be taken out of context:
"I had to pay legal fees of over $150,000 in order to get the NME to apologise. That incident just about turned me off for life, as you can imagine."
Morrissey also made a brief comment about Coachella's offer to the Smiths:
"Fascinatingly they made it clear that they would 'not require' the Smiths' bass player or drummer ... which I thought certainly said something."
Other topics of discussion: Morrissey still doesn't have a record deal, still hates the Royal Family (wasn't surprised about Prince Harry's Las Vegas incident because "he's always been an absolute idiot"), loves Russell Brand (but not his films), prefers Twitter over Facebook, and revealed his favorite recent-ish songs were "Lonely Day" by System of a Down and "Born That Way" by James Maker.
