Morrissey is a big fighter for animal rights.
So of course he slapped his name on a petition that was demanding an independent probe into a vivisection lab at Imperial College London.
If you're unfamiliar with the term, vivisection is a surgery performed on a living creature for experimental purposes.
That means these animals are ALIVE when scientists begin cutting into them!

Beyonce has been blowing up even bigger than usual this year.
The more you're in the spotlight, the more you'll be scrutinized, and it looks like that's been happening to Beyonce.
Morrissey was already on a celeb feud streak with his back and forth vs. Jimmy Kimmel, as we previously mentioned.
Most recently, he attacked Beyonce during a concert of his in L.A., talking about her bags.

We all know how set in his ways Morrissey can be at times.
One of the more recent times is when he was due to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
Morrissey backed out of the gig because of Kimmel's other guests, the stars of A&E's Duck Dynasty, because they're "animal serial killers" because of their duck-hunting products.
Jimmy responded by saying:

Morrissey is a man of principle!
Which is why he's willing to stand up Jimmy Kimmel if the host doesn't rid himself of some unwanted guests!
Morrissey was due to perform on the late night talk show, but will rescind his RSVP unless Jimmy caves in to the singer's demands.
Here's what he said:

After just being named PETA's UK person of the year for 2011, Morrissey is back at it again, this time joining an anti-cruelty cosmetics campaign.
He is taking a stance against vivisection, which is surgery conducted on a living creature for experimental purposes.
He joins Sir Paul McCartney and Kimberly Wyatt in the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection's (BUAV) No Cruel Cosmetics drive.
"Say no to injecting, force-feeding or forcing animals to inhale substances for a new lipstick or shampoo.
Please join me in signing the BUAV No Cruel Cosmetics petition to stop the sale of new animal tested cosmetics in the EU."
Hopefully something like that could make its way over to America, and help save all our poor, little test critters.

Morrissey has been named PETA's UK person of the year for 2011.
Morrissey, ex-lead singer of the band The Smiths, has been an activist, fighting for the animals for quite some time now.
He even named one of their albums, Meat is Murder.
So throughout his summer tour, Morrissey always made sure to have information booths with PETA volunteers ready to share knowledge and vegetarian starter kits.
When Morrissey heard he was named person of the year he immediately wrote PETA's cofounder, Ingrid Newkirk, a letter that said:
