David Bowie gets Rickrolled on single reissue cover, Morrissey always wins
At this point, just about everyone in the world should be aware of the fact that Morrissey is a delightful curmudgeon of diva extents. So when someone dares to evoke the Wrath of Morrissey, the result is always an amazing knockout by the emo king himself. Usually, Morrissey goes off on some harangue in a concert or somewhere online, but his latest comeback was silently worth a thousand words.
Morrissey has been reissuing a bunch of awesome stuff lately, and his latest project was the reissue of 1989's "The Last of the International Playboys." The reissue cover was supposed to feature a rare photo of David Bowie and Morrissey together in New York, but Bowie blocked Morrissey's usage of the picture. At the time this went down, Morrissey was in the hospital for his monthly dose of surly (not to mention kicking ulcer ass).
Well, Morrissey's back and better than ever. The Last of The International Playboys himself finally responded and has managed to get back at Bowie in the best way possible: Rickrolling him forever by using a photo of himself and Rick Astley backstage at "Top of the Pops" in 1989 instead. Clearly, Morrissey doesn't need Bowie to execute his reissuing rampage -- Astley's never going to give him up, so he'll always have Morrissey's back (sorry, I had to).
Enjoy "The Last of the International Playboys" below.
