It has been a subject in many of Morrissey’s diatribes for awhile now, but the singer seems to want to put the subject to bed stating that he most likely will not record for a “grownup label” again.

In a statement on the site True to You, he stated:

I now no longer expect to live long enough to experience an offer to record for a grownup label. This topic would not sound quite so banal had I not mentioned it 47 times already. I promise I will not mention it again. The world, I expect, will somehow endure, even as the follow-up to Years of refusal grows less and less likely. End of subject. I promise.

He also addressed the upcoming trial with NME over a story they ran that made the singer look racist.

Well. As the year dies, I return to England to prepare for the High Court circus of the NME case. Instead of simply saying “sorry” (for re-writing the answers to my last NME interview in 2007 in order to make me sound racist), the imperious NME would rather spend hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pounds in a High Court duel to the death. The fact that they have chosen a court drama over simply apologizing reinforces the notion that their original intent all along was to invent a sensation. So, here it is. And it is difficult to imagine anything more tragic from a magazine with such a gold-plated history. Of course, the court hearing itself will barely touch upon the actual 2007 interview, and will instead attempt to link my name to almost any unpleasant historical incident from the Irish potato famine to the murder of Medgar Evers. With the help of their giddy fan base at The Guardian newspaper, now is the NME’s big chance to scorch me off the human map for good. And what a triumph that would be for them. What a proud and eternal boast.

There’s a lot more in Morrissey’s letter, including his favorite stops on the just ended tour and reasoning for a couple of bad shows, at True to You.
