No Twitter feuds for Morrissey!
The Smiths singer needs way more than 140 characters to express his disdain!
The most recent target of his ire is none other than fellow mononymous pop star Madonna!

In a 1300-word (!!!) essay entitled Music Awards Are None Of Your Business, Morrissey tears at the BRIT Awards, most prominently ruing the fact that Her Madgesty will be performing at the February 25th ceremony.
Why?? He writes:
"The Brit Awards do not ask the public who they would like to see receive awards - for that would be to risk too much, yet the fierce insistence is that artists are rewarded for their prominence in the previous twelve months because, after all, 'it's what everybody wants.' Thus, for 2015, we have MacDonna, who had a quiet 2014 (but who is quite usefully about to release her new album!), yet here she is again promoting her frightening career on the Brit Awards even though her music has not ever said anything at all about British life. Just as the Brits launch party highlighted a song that reached no higher than number 62 on the UK chart, it really is your own fault if you believe that this Awards show has any connection to anything other than the junk propaganda of the strongest labels gathering to share out awards for their own artists whom they plan to heavily promote in 2015."
You know, for someone who says meat is murder, Morrissey sure does have a lot of beef.
