WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?: The organisers of the Brits proved, once again, that they don't really follow the new music scene these days with those young people like Smiths and The Morrissey, as it seems they really did consider trying to bring Morrissey together with Robbie Williams for a duet.

"We're sorry," explained a Brits spokesperson, "we'd misunderstood and when we were told 'over my rotting corpse' by Morrissey, we assumed he was saying he'd do it but bring some sort of cadaver to decorate the stage with..."

Seriously: they thought this was a go-er? A man who thinks that Johnny Marr is too showy working with vapid-boy?

Clearly the record company was keen: A source at Morrissey's record label says, "It was all set to go then Morrissey decided it was not the right thing for him to do. He has passed on his apologies to Robbie."

We can imagine what those apologies might have been: "sorry, little man, are you insane?" or "sorry, what?"
