Morrissey Paints a Vulgar Picture of EMI

Best of! Most of! Satiate the need! Although a quick search for "Morrissey Greatest Hits" on Amazon.com returns sixteen results, that isn't stopping his old record labels from issuing more greatest-hits packages. However, none other than the Mozzer himself is urging his fans not to pick up these obvious cash grabs. He released a statement that begins with the following: "Morrissey would like it to be known that he has not been consulted by EMI/HMV/Parlophone with regards to two forthcoming boxed sets of Morrissey singles. Morrissey does not approve such releases and would ask people not to bother buying them." Bonus points for referring to himself in the third person, but we would've rather seen him work a "sycophantic slags" reference in there. [Rock & Roll Daily/Rolling Stone]
