Morrissey has revealed that he has undergone treatment for cancer in an interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo.
The former Smiths frontman told the paper, in a response to a question about his recent hospitalizations:
“They have scraped cancerous tissues four times already, but whatever. If I die, then I die. And if I don’t, then I don’t. Right now I feel good. I am aware that in some of my recent photos I look somewhat unhealthy, but that’s what illness can do. I’m not going to worry about that, I’ll rest when I’m dead.
He added: "[I’m] now at an age when I should no longer be making music … Many composers of classical music died at age 34. And I’m still here, and nobody knows what to do with me."
