Morrissey has cancelled all of the remaining dates on his current U.S. tour. Despite what you may think, the cancellation has nothing to do with rhinos or Beyonce‘s handbags; he’s just need to take a break. Also, The Strokes released a new music video for one of the songs off their upcoming record. And Yahoo! announced a brand new festival that’ll feature some pretty big names in hip hop.

In a bit of sad news—as if there is any other kind with the miserablist singer—Morrissey was unfortunately forced to postpone several dates of his North American tour a few weeks ago. The reason? His mother had become ill and the singer rushed to be by her side, putting a slew of dates on hold. Well, those of you who had planned on seeing the Moz, well, today your ship comes in.

Look, we know—every year, almost like clockwork, rumors begin to swell that The Smiths will finally reunite, following their acrimonious break-up in 1987. And, every year, those rumors are almost immediately—and rather derisively—swatted away by former Smiths frontman Morrissey (guitarist Johnny Marr can be a little nicer). And it’s that time of year again—that’s right, a fresh batch of Smiths reunion rumors have leaked. But this time (we know, we know), it looks like it may actually be happening.

Morrissey is known for many things: excellent singing voice, stunning lyrics, powerhouse discography. He’s also known for being a little, let’s say, outspoken about his worldview. He’s famously feuded with such pop music hotshots as Elton John, Madonna, George Michael, The Cure’s Robert Smith, and many more. He is an outspoken defender of animal rights and extraordinarily harsh critic of meat-eating. Moreover, everything seems to just really, really piss him off.

So… this should go over well. Want to read the most offensive thing you’ll probably see all day—if not all week (I’d say all month, but I’m pretty sure that another celebrity will do something even dumber and more offensive by the end of the month—I mean, Lohan’s out of jail now, so it just stands to reason)? Well, lucky us, Morrissey decided to let loose with something pretty horrible.
