Morrissey has appeared to criticise his record label, Harvest Records, with the singer hinting at "public deception" in the music industry in an update posted on fansite True To You.

The post sees the former Smiths frontman begin by praising three fans who have made their own videos for songs from his latest album, 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business'. "These videos fully understand the intent of the song, and I am relieved that these films exist," he states.

However, he goes on to say: "A similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label, but please understand that the pop or rock industry can be as dedicated to perpetuating public deception as the world of politics itself."

Elsewhere in the post, Morrissey returns to more familiar topics and attacks both George Bush and Tony Blair, as well as the Royal Family and meat eaters. He ends the short post by writing about the lack of interest in him from TV bosses.

"In answer to many people who have asked, I should like to finally make it clear that I have not received any television invitations – worldwide! – to either discuss World peace is none of your business, or even to sing any songs from the album."

Morrissey did not mention Bradley Steyn, the man who recently alleged that he was asked in his position as security guard to "hurt" the man in charge of another Morrissey fansite, Morrissey-Solo. Morrissey denied the claims and stated that Steyn's statement is now in the hands of the Los Angeles Police Department.
