Morrissey ‘Bieber Has Nothing To Offer’

justin-bieber-gas-mask-penis-clutch


Legendary former frontman The Smith’s Morrissey attacked Beyonce and Justin Bieber when talking to Rookiemag: ‘Whether it be Beyoncé or Justin Bieber, we see singers who have absolutely nothing to offer anyone as they walk off stage clutching three Grammys in each hand.’

However, Beyonce has won 17 Grammys, Bieber has none. On Madonna: ‘In recent years I saw McDonna live, and no audience member reached up toward her to try to touch her. I see this so often with artists whom we’re told are global stars. It is a big lie.’

Do YOU think that Justin Bieber has anything to offer music??

    welp. he’s not wrong, but almost i want to say he is just because he’s an arrogant prick. he is an old man now and still he oozes bitterness and unhappiness. ‘the smiths’ were only popular for 4-5 years and then disappeared (and broke up after that).

    Morrissey is talented, but anyone who speaks of any art form in terms of right or wrong is missing the point. Art is about expression. Some music, like some movies and books, is about telling about life and the world exactly how it is. However, some music, like some movies and books, is about being taken away from the normal- being transported. It’s escapism. Neither form of art is wrong.

    I think acting like having a Grammy makes some musicians better than others is silly too. All a Grammy, or any other award, means is that a certain group of people like your work. That’s it.

    I would of agreed with him UNTIL the Beyonce part, women has a great voice and can sign live its just seems like she feels she has proven her fans that she can actually sing that she just those not care anymore. Justin? I thought we all were clear that he cant sign, act and is not a very nice person although i used to like him when he stared his career when he was a sweet, kind boy.

    Basically. I hate when artists attack others work. Music and beauty are subjective.

    Why the hell is he always clutching his junk in public?

    He looks like he’s having a breakdown acting so odd lately. Or he’s just stupid and thinks it looks good.

    Justin Bieber is a hot mess. Beyonce however is one of the most talented people EVER. Dont see how anyone could ever mention them in the same sentence?

    Bieber is acting like Shia Labeouf when he was having a break down.

    Beyonce isn’t underrated. She is one of the best female performers of my lifetime anyway. No one can touch her right now. I personally prefer Pink’s shows, but that doesn’t take anything from beyonce. Bieber lip synchs the majority of his song on tour and half asses his choreography. His fans are just happy breathing the same air though, so he’ll always be relevant as long as they are buying tickets. Unfortunate.

    NO. Bieber has nothing to offer but saying Beyonce doesn’t is stretching it.

    Bieber is a commodity. He’s all image and no substance.

    A lot of music on the radio today is crap. Filled with artists who can’t sing live, have no musical talent and don’t even write songs. Justin’s just one of them.

    I agree with Morrissey. JB is a talentless piece of shit who should not be in the music business!

  • Justinsuglyglasses

    Let’s face it, Justin is OK talent wise but nothing special. The word “talented” has been so debased recently. Any cute guy who can open his mouth is called “talented” and given multiple posts on oceanup. The fact that the Jonas Brothers are now being referred to as “real artists” shows just how far our expectations have dropped in terms of talent. Remember that just a few years ago, artists were making the same attacks on the Jonas Brothers as Morrissey is making on Bieber now. I just can’t wait til the public starts supporting artists with real talent. Maybe the attack on faux talents will be the first step in this direction.

  • Beyonce is a GOD

    Woah now hold on. this guy is an IDIOT if he thinks Beyonce has given nothing to the music industry. She has given herself to the industry since she was a young girl.She is so talented and worthy of every award she has received. She is also very charitable and a good warm hearted person. She is a wonderful role model for young woman. I would love to see what he has done to so greatly impact the world. Dont mess with my girl Beyonce. I have been a fan for over 14 years.

    If David Archuleta were more famous/popular then Morrissey would likely be saying the same about him as he is about Bieber & Beyonce. All of these judgements are relative and subjective. Art is expression and you don’t have to like someone’s expression to make it art or not.

    Excuse you. The smiths are one of the greatest bands that ever existed. He is just speaking whats in his mind, which I couldn’t agree more.

    to me beyonce is just a singer not a musician. I won’t even start about that weird little kid that’s always shirtless lately.

    You’re kidding right? Yes, art is subjective but not everyone who sings is talented. It used to be that the difference between “professional” singers and “amateurs” is that professionals could really sing and sing beautifully. That really changed with autotune and lip-synching. Rihanna, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj can’t sing. That’s the truth. People are getting sick of shitty singers like that getting famous. Justin is not as bad as those three but no way is Justin as talented as Scooter keeps telling us.

    As for David Archuleta, he would not get the hate that Justin does because he’s a nice guy and has an incredible voice. Way better than any other young singer featured regularly on oceanup. People respect real talent. You don’t see people attacking Adele for her fame. And of course David will never be as famous as Justin because he did not have Jelena and does not have millions of marketing dollars behind him. It would help if oceanup did a post or two on David instead of yet another stupid post of Ashley Tisdale shopping.

    I hate bieber but i dont understand why someone new has to come out and bash him every week it seems like. We get it the kids not that talented. stfu! but i completely disagree about beyonce. shes been in the entertainment industry for the past like 12 years. because she likes to wear revealing outfits or some of her biggest songs are annoying doesnt mean she doesnt offer anything. listen to some of her deeper songs like listen. shes is a true artist. her last album was a different sound for her (mainly cause she wrote it completely herself) and she took a risk. it didnt sell as well as songs like single ladies which is why i dont understand his comment. she could of easily made another song/album like that but she didnt.

    I feel like..in todays society, our so-called “musical legends” are allowed to say anything they want with no hate or backlash which isnt fair. Being wise and mature doesnt come with age like in this case. Who is he to say they dont do anything musically? just because he does not enjoy them or their music doesnt give him a right to put them down. I say respect is giving to people who deserve it, not old bitter ass musicians who find the need to put others down just for what? it cant be attention. so what is it for? so his beliebers can bash him?

    Funny that Oceanup points out Beyonce has 17 Grammys when Morrissey, the Smiths and Justin have yet to win one. Beyonce is amazing in what she does; except for Rihanna maybe in a couple years, I dont see another r&b/soul singer that comes close to her right now or in the last couple years. She sings/dances at the same time and it sounds great! This women leaves her freaking heart on the stage! Hence the superbowl! Not winning a grammy must suck. But if Morrissey is so great as he is known to be, he would be in the damn studio making music for his fans instead of bashing Justin Bieber. Just a thought!

    Morrissey? You mean the same guy who said if more men were gay then it would be less wars? Yep because wars start because a country is homophobic! Leave the boy alone. Hes 18 years old; with the fanbase he has built, he has a chance to be great and do good things. And then we wonder why some many young stars grow up to have a serious drug/drinking problem and just go down the wrong paths. Its you! Not them! Stop. If he sucks he sucks but people coming out every month to announce it is not going to make him a better singer.

  • Ijustneedyounow

    i think rhiana, beyoncé and justin bieber are really overrated
    but the queen of overrated (as a singer) is selena gomez… she has zero talent and lands one hit after the other -.-

  • oceanUP

    the grammys are not really relevant since selena has no nominations tho
