Morrissey: 'Jamie Oliver should be gassed'

And apparently Princess Anne is the right person for the job

Morrissey wants Jamie Oliver dead and the unlikely Princess Anne to do the honours.

The reason for his extreme hatred? Because the chef sometimes cooks meat, obviously.

“It would be a great help if Princess Anne gassed Jamie Oliver,” he told Irish magazine Hot Press. “He's killed more animals than McDonald's.”

The singer previously lambasted Oliver for cooking “flesh food” before in January this year.

“If Jamie ‘Orrible is so certain that flesh-food is tasty then why doesn’t he stick one of his children in a microwave?” he asked somewhat strongly.

He isn’t the only one to have denounced the “wholesome word” of the chef. In October 2013, Will Self dedicated an entire column detailing the many reasons for his dislike of the man who revived the term “lovely jubbley”.

 

“Oliver sticks in my craw and I’d walk a c**ty mile to avoid him and all his works,” wrote Self in a column for New Statesman.

“What this society needs is a culture that values its eternal soul above its lemon sole and a form of social justice that doesn’t depend on the tit-beating self-righteousness of charity – with all the patronising bullshit that goes along with this.

But anyway, back to Morrissey. In a completely unsurprisingly show of morbidness, he also talked about his funeral, saying it will only be upon his death that the media and the public finally give him the respect and appreciation he so desperately needs.

"They'll all turn up finally ready with praise once I'm out of earshot,” he said. “Who cared...about John Lennon in the years leading up to his death? No one. I'm not saying I'm as known as John Lennon because obviously I'm not."

The ever-cheery singer launched his tenth solo album, World Peace Is None of Your Business, last month.
