Morrissey dashes hopes of The Smiths reunion in fan Q+A

Frontman claims he has 'no interest' in former band

Morrissey has said that he has “no interest” in The Smiths.

The singer, whose former band are regularly the subject of reunion rumours, reaffirmed his lack of interest in the group he formed with Johnny Marr during a Q&A with fans on the fan site, True To You.

Asked which question he secretly wishes he was asked during interviews, Morrissey suggested that it was only enquiries about the future of The Smiths he is not keen on. “I haven’t done an interview with a British music magazine since 2007, so the process doesn’t drill through my head anymore. As an entity, I have no interest in The Smiths, so as long as I’m not asked about The Smiths, I won’t slip into permanent unconsciousness. And that’s a promise.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Morrissey discusses his plans to write a novel, his new album, animal rights, fashion, visiting Asia and his influence on his fans and culture at large.

Earlier this week it was revealed that a signed copy of Morrissey’s autobiography sold at auction, raising over £8,000 for animal rights charity PETA.
