Today, in the most Morrissey of Morrissey news, the former Smiths front-man convinces Downtown L.A.’s Staples Center to go completely vegetarian for his upcoming March 1st show, with a portion of ticket sales going to PETA. Billboard learns that The Mozfather personally requested the arena’s vendors to only serve meatless, murder-less dishes; a demand that makes the removal of all green M&Ms; from the bowl look fairly quaint. Fulfilling the singer’s request, which was previously denied when Paul McCartney asked, means the arena’s McDonald’s location will be closed for the night while the rest of the stalls scramble to provide vegetarian-friendly fare.
Morrissey himself says, "I don’t look upon it as a victory for me, but a victory for the animals." Of course he does.
