Morrissey has said that any criticism of his 2013 biography does not affect him.

The singer released his memoirs last year through Penguin Classics and spoke to Irish publication Hot Press about the process of writing the book and how he has dealt with reviews and opinion of the title.

Explaining his writing process, Morrissey stated: "I wrote the childhood sequence almost as a child might, and the adolescent period as an adolescent might, and the adult section as a… suicidalist might."

While on the subject of criticism, he added: "It’s really just a factual account of how events affected me, so therefore any criticism of it doesn’t make any sense, since I am me, and only I can know what it’s like to be me, and so on.”

Last month Morrissey denied claims made by Bradley Steyn, after he alleged that he was asked in his position as security guard to "hurt" the man in charge of 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.

More recently Morrissey criticised his record label, Harvest Records, over a perceived lack of support with his music videos from new album 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business'.
