The Guardian caught up with George Michael over the weekend, with a rapid-fire question interview in which Michael handed off one-line quips on various topics such as his greatest fear (losing the ability to create music), his favorite word (go-on-then), his favorite book (impossible to answer) and how often he has sex (wouldn't you like to know).

MichaelBut it was the answer to his final question which stirred the loins of the music world, when the Guardian asked him if he could tell them a secret. Said Michael:

"The Smiths are reforming."

Whether George Michael knows something we don't know or is just messing with the hearts of those who hope to hear Morrissey's voice and Johnny Marr's guitar back together again (more likely) is anyone's guess, but it's certainly the most interesting thing he said in the interview.

Morrissey's personal website True To You announced over the weekend that "Three weeks after the release of Morrissey's World Peace Is None Of Your Business (#2 UK, #14 US), Capitol Records/Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey, as directed by label boss Steve Barnett. Morrissey is once again in search of a record label."

For his part, Morrissey answered the question of a reunion (once again) in January, saying:

"I don't know a single person who wants a Smiths reunion! But, no, there aren't any bands I like to see again because your memory of them is how they were in their prime or at their best or at their most desperate, and you look to them to be someone that they no longer are."

He also said he'd be retiring from music about now.

And, Gigwise notes, this is what Marr had to say about a reunion three months ago.

Morrissey's Bodyguard Files Suit Against Musician, Claims He Was Asked To 'Hurt' Fan

MorrisseyAccording to a new report, it may not be so fun to work for Morrissey (or be his biggest fan). The British superstar's bodyguard, Bradley Steyn, has filed a lawsuit against him, claiming that he was tasked not only with keeping Morrissey safe but also with hurting a fan. Steyn claims he was fired when he refused.

TMZ reports:

According to Steyn ... Morrissey hated the guy who ran one of his fan websites -- Morrissey-solo.com -- which he felt invaded his personal life. Steyn claims in the suit Morrissey asked if there was a way the fan "could get hurt."

Steyn claims right in front of Morrissey ... the tour manager asked if the fan "could be gotten rid of." Then they discussed how to get the fan's home address.


Morrissey Cheers the Death of a Bullfighter in New Single: VIDEO

Morrissey-World-Peace-Is-None-Of-Your-Business-608x545

Following his May 19th spoken word promo for The Bullfighter Dies, Morrissey has released the full studio version.

Taken from his 10th studio album World Peace Is None Of Your Business, the track opens with a sad trumpet lament and details a world in which everyone cheers when the matador is gorged to death by the bull.

As we've come to expect from Morrissey, The Bullfighter Dies doesn't break any new ground but it's quirky enough to stand out and does what Morrissey does best - sparkling indie pop with a serious subject matter and clever lyrics.

Following up his first spoken word song promo which featured iconic blonde Nancy Sinatra, Morrissey heads to the top of the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles for an existential interpretation of "Earth is the Loneliest Planet" with another iconic blonde: Pamela Anderson.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all

Day after day you say “one day”
Day after day you say “one day”
But you’re in the wrong place and you’ve got the wrong face
And humans are not really very humane
And earth is the loneliest planet of all

Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Live with a lowness that no one else knows
Time after time you say “next time”
Time after time you say “next time
But you fail as a woman and you lose as a man; we do what we can
And earth is the cruelest place that you will never understand

But you're in the wrong skin
And the skin that you're in says
Oh, let it begin
And earth is the loneliest planet of all

Nancy Sinatra Delivers Morrissey a Set of Lyrics in 'World Peace is None of Your Business' Promo: VIDEO

Sinatra

Morrissey today released a promo for his upcoming single "World Peace is None of Your Business" in which he reads the lyrics to the track which are hand-delivered to him in a briefcase which is spirited into the room by Nancy Sinatra.

A sampling:

World peace is none of your business
You must not tamper with arrangements
Work hard and simply pay your taxes
Never asking what for
Oh your poor little fool, you poor little fool
World peace is none of your business
The police will stun you with their stun guns or they'll disable you with their tasers, that's what governments are for
