MORRISSEY EMBRACES FOOTIE, GETS FLOODED

Morrisseyshirt What a week for Morrissey, who stepped onstage at LA’s Hollywood Palladium on Monday resplendent in the red-and-white stripes of the Chivas USA football team, then found his planned 10-night run interrupted after a ruptured water main swamped the venue.

Tuesday and tonight (ie. Thursday’s) shows have been cancelled in response, but promoters Live Nation are hoping that the run will recommence on Friday evening, with disappointed ticket-holders given the chance to attend another night.

Currently in the midst of a mammoth, 18-month, 177-date US tour rumoured to be plugging the financial gap caused by the relative commercial failure of last year’s excellent Ringleader Of The Tormentors album, Morrissey appears to be in otherwise fine (if chunky) form and claims to be planning to release a new album in early 2008.

But what’s with the rather undignified footie strip? Well, the uniform is that of the Carson City team Chivas USA, whose fanbase is primarily Mexican-American, a community also known for its notoriously disproportionate (not to mention slightly weird) Moz-loyalty.

Chivas share a ground with David Beckham’s club, LA Galaxy, and are known as “The Goats”.

He is NOT chubby. He's just not skinny anymore. I think he looks healthy and much more masculine than he ever has before! He's a man baby, not a boy. You wait until you are 48 years old.
