Morrissey has slated Madonna's penchant for wearing fur.

The former Smiths frontman was playing the Norva venue in Norfolk, Virginia last week (July 9) when he verbally attacked the singer from the stage.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if she made that African boy she adopted into a coat and wore him for 15 minutes, then threw it away,” he declared.

The gig was organised by PETA – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals - of whom Morrissey is a long-standing supporter.

The show was held close to the organisation's base, with the singer declaring: “I’m very gratified to be so close to the international headquarters of the People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals.”

However Morrissey was not in a completely vitriolic mood, later joking about himself and his legacy.

Including several Smiths song in the set, including 'The Queen Is Dead', 'Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want', 'Girlfriend In A Coma' and 'How Soon Is Now?', ahead of 1985 hit single 'The Boy With The Thorn In His Side' he told the audience, "If you turn your head you'll see a black hole you can’t escape from. That's the past.”

The set was:

'The Queen Is Dead'
'First Of The Gang To Die'
'In The Future When All's Well'
'Everyday Is Like Sunday'
'Irish Blood, English Heart'
'The Boy With The Thorn In His Side'
'Let Me Kiss You'
'You Have Killed Me'
'All You Need Is Me'
'Girlfriend In A Coma'
'Disappointed'
'I Just Want To See The Boy Happy'
'That's How People Grow Up'
'The National Front Disco'
'At Last I Am Born'
'Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want'
'Life Is A Pigsty'
'How Soon Is Now?'
'The Last Of The Famous International Playboys'
