The Smiths Are ‘Never Ever’ Reuniting, Everyone

British singer Morrisey performs on stage during the the 53rd edition of the Vina del Mar Song Festival in Vina del Mar, Chile, 24 february 2012.

No more Smiths reunion rumors, world! We went through this rigamarole back in April, when Johnny Marr insisted that the band was not getting back together, and now Morrissey's rep has weighed in as well. "The Smiths are never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever going to reunite — ever," Morrissey's rep tells Rolling Stone, despite the front man's recent conversation with Australia's Herald Sun, where he said "the agents for Coachella offered a 100-per-cent vegetarian event for the following year if I would agree to headline with Johnny Marr as the Smiths." One more time, the greatest publicist statement ever: "The Smiths are never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever going to reunite — ever." We look forward to the Taylor Swift version of this phrase.
