The singer, who rose to fame as the lead of rock band The Smiths, took to his own Morrissey Central forum to dispel rumors that pop star Miley Cyrus dropped from his 2022 single "I Am Veronic" due to his politics.
"I am aware that the ludicrous 'Morrissey is Far Right' attributions have very recently wiggled back into minor vogue on all of the usual gossip sites," he began. "This rush is, I am assured, in view of Miley Cyrus wanting to be removed from 'I Am Veronica', and suddenly the very dated rehash of 'This is because of Morrissey's political views' wobbles out - delighting those for whom I am a book that under no circumstances can they stop reading."
"My friends are fully aware of a certain aim to put me out of circulation, which has inexplicably become relentless even though the entire point of Cancel Culture is to never again acknowledge whomever has been canceled," he continued. "You cannot constantly vomit out the same regurgitated 'he should not be listened to' dirge year after year, because YOU are displaying an obsession that you urge others to avoid."
Over recent years, articles referring to Morrissey, who's full name is Sean Patrick Morrissey, sprouted up in several publications, including the Los Angeles Times, The Independent, and The Guardian.
Morrissey went on to say that "Cancel Vultures write only in headlines."
"...they do not answer questions; their darts aim only for the inspired elite of perceptive intelligence," he wrote.
"The Vultures are usually chief exponents of the hate and harassment which they themselves define as justification for Cancellation of others. Cancel Vultures are unknowable blanks, and they only attack those of whom they are most jealous - because others don't count. They will not forgive you for being alive, but they will not square up to you face-to-face because they would be forced to look into your eyes … where the wordless truth resides. Worst of all, Cancel Vultures cannot ever apologize for being wrong. This would be worse than death."
He then set the record straight on the swirling rumors of drama between himself and Cyrus.
"In truth, Miley has backed off for reasons unconnected to me, having had a major clash with a key figure in 'the circle.' I cannot give any details about the private fight because … it is private, after all."
According to the Smiths frontman, the campaign to "destroy" his career was originally led by four "prominent" individuals with "full unedited access to the Legacy Media."
"At some point, each one of them had hopes of a candle-lit friendship with me, and this did not happen. Their rage for attention then took a different turn."
He then added that the "Left changed and deserted" him many years ago, and that he is "most certainly not Far Right."
"My politics are straightforward: I recognize realities. Some realities horrify me, and some do not, but I accept that I was not created so that others might gratify me and delight me with all that they think and do - what a turgid life that would be," Morrissey said. "I've been offended all of my life, and it has strengthened me, and I am glad. I wouldn't have the journey any other way. Only by hearing the opinions of others can we form truly rational views, and therefore we must never accept a beehive society that refuses to reflect a variety of views."
He then called back to other non-conformist music legends, including the Sex Pistols, David Bowie, the Ramones, and Alice Cooper.
"... no one saw these monoliths coming, therefore the people discovered them before the industry had time to halt the fun. Now, alas, music cannot happen unless it adheres to strict industry guidelines, and this falsely assures the listening public that things could not possibly be better than they currently are."
The iconic singer closed off with a final message to the "Cancel Vultures."
"On the political stage, I do not exist: you have never seen me there and you never shall. I therefore do not mind in the least if you join the Morrissey haters - there is always the likelihood that I'd feel exactly the same way about you. But if you join forces with the Cancel Vultures, your only aim is to numb time, and your eyes are dead."
Back in November, Morrissey made similar statements against monolithic political thinking.
"Music, really, not many people have faith in music anymore," he said in an interview with Fiona Dodwell, noting that music labels can just get rid of people, and talented performers aren’t given a chance. "Now the labels are quite bloodless, they will just get rid of you if you say anything they don’t agree with."
"Now they talk about 'oh, we must have diversity, diversity, diversity,' which is diversity is people that you don't know. It’s just another word for conformity. It's the new way of saying conformity: diversity. You don't see anything diverse anywhere. It's all conformity," he added.
