Morrissey says he’s receiving cancer treatment

SHARE Morrissey says he’s receiving cancer treatment

Ex-Smiths frontman Morrissey told Spanish newspaper El Mundo that he is undergoing cancer treatments.

“They have scraped cancerous tissues four times already, but whatever,” he said, in an interview with the paper. “If I die, then I die. And if I don’t, then I don’t. Right now I feel good.”

In June, the singer canceled his U.S. tour, including a stop at the CivicOpera House.

Morrissey’s team issued a statement, saying “the remainder of the US Tour has been canceled. The respiratory infection Morrissey contracted in Miami has worsened, and in the interest of making a full recovery, all further touring plans have been halted. Morrissey thanks his fans for their compassion, understanding, and well wishes during this difficult period as he recuperates.”

That cancellation came a year after scrapping his 2013 tour. His health problems over the past year have includedpneumonia, an ulcer, the throat condition Barrett’s esophagus, and anemia.

He told El Mundo that he’s no longer of the age to continue making music.

“Many composers of classical music died at age 34. And I’m still here, and nobody knows what to do with me.

“With luck I will be able to stop singing forever, which would make many people happy.”
