Morrissey knows what he likes, and it isn't Damien Hirst

Morrissey doesn't like Damien Hirst:

Discussing the artists work with artist Linder Sterling, he said: "I dislike the 'use' of animals in art, such as in the work of Damien Hirst. Do you agree that Hirst's head should be kept in a bag for the way he's utilized-and sold-dead animals?"

Charles Saatchi has already expressed interest in buying Morrissey's Hirst head in hessian sack should it ever come on the market.

Actually, that wouldn't please Morrissey, either:
Morrissey also claimed the wealth accrued by Damien - reputed to be the world's richest living artist, whose works have sold for over £10 million pounds - "reduces him to mere factory outlet".

Morrissey is famous for never charging for his gigs, and giving his records away for free.
