The British singer Morrissey defended both Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein in an interview this weekend, claiming their alleged victims knew “exactly” what was going on — and chose to “play along.”

I bet he won't be getting invites to many more parties but I admire his honesty. He knows the business well enough to have an inside track on how people act when they have a chance to advance their careers and how other people react when their revenue stream (as in some famous actor they are making a living by hanging on to) is threatened.

“Good career move.”

There are many ways to be a prostitute.

I'm sure he has enough money socked away to not care about his career one way or another.

I notice he doesn't defend Al Franken.

Has anybody defended Franken?

I think Franken has just discovered that nobody likes him

In other words:

“And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want."
“Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything.”

He's a British singer very well known in Europe not so much in the USA. In England they voted him the second greatest living cultural icon behind Sir David Attenborough.

He is a big honcho for the BBC but Americans know him best for producing and narrating a wildlife series called The Living Planet

Morrissey is a very talented musician and a very weird individual. Politically, he will say 10-15 outrageously leftist things, and then intermittently say something sensible.

This comment is neither. At best, both Mr. Weinstein and Mr. Spacey have demonstrated pattern of using their power to satisfy their particular lusts and a general contempt for other people. At worst, they may both be serial rapists.

Either way, they are not worth defending.

He released a new album last week. Good career move on his part.
