MSN reported on March 21 that the world’s most miserable singer Morrissey has been told to retire from music by his team of doctors. The crooner recently cancelled his North American tour due to the financial burden of his health problems. The Smiths former front man is currently recovering in Mexico.
Morrissey told Reactor 105.7, “I had a very bad time. I had internal bleeding and I was rushed into hospital and I had lost a lot of blood. They tried to patch me together over the following five weeks but it didn’t work… I was on lots of IV drips for almost five weeks, and each time it seemed as though I was back to robust health I would decline… I had lost so much blood I had become anemic, but I’m still receiving ongoing treatment and I am very optimistic now.”
“It almost became absurd the number of things that happened to me, but everything just attacked me at once. The double pneumonia – everything was really a result of the fact I had lost so much blood, so the immune defenses were very, very low and couldn’t cope with anything, so therefore the slightest gust of wind and I would have a terrible cold," he also told the Mexican radio station.
Morrissey warned his fans, “I have been cautioned to [retire], but it’s difficult for me because it’s very ingrained in me.”
