After being repeatedly hospitalised over the past year and a half, Morrissey has said in a recent Spanish-language interview that he has undergone a series of cancer treatments.“They have scraped cancerous tissues four times already, but whatever,” Morrissey told El Mundo, via the Morrissey-Solo messageboard. “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.”Despite several recent illnesses, this is Morrissey’s first mention of cancer. He was diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer in early 2013, double pneumonia in March 2013, food poisoning in July 2013 and then a respiratory infection in June 2014. Doctors had “cautioned” him to stop touring, he admitted last year, “but it’s difficult for me because it’s very ingrained within me”. In this latest interview, Morrissey stated that he is “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,” he said. The 55-year-old is currently finishing his debut novel, which he hopes to publish next year. “With luck I will be able to stop singing forever, which would make many people happy!”
