Morrissey (Almost) Reveals His Arsenal (NSFW) →
Have you ever wondered what Morrissey looks like nearly nude? Thanks to the inner sleeve of Mozzer’s single for “Paris,” your fantasies involving him, and his backing band, wearing nothing but a few inches of vinyl can have actual images to go along with them.

randyhaddock: She looks like a real woman and I didn’t even mind the mom jeans. And how horrible is it of people to even criticize her because she doesn’t look like the typical anorexic celebrity? I mean, really, how does someone sit there and pass judgement on somebody’s weight? How is that relevant to their lives? Does it do anything for their self-esteem to attack someone’s weight? Where...
