Don't Make Sexual Remarks About Your Boss


Kristeen Young of the group called Kristeenyoung (big stretch) had a sweet little gig opening for Morrissey on his US tour. Last Tuesday, Kristeen decided that pissing off the boss might be fun and in response to the audience's chant for Morrissey said, "Morrissey gives good head, I mean, er, cunnilingus..."

Yea. That's not going to be something that Morrissey is going to enjoy so he kicked the group off the tour. Granted, there is only one week left, but this is not how you want to be perceived by other headliners for whom you wish to work.

In a valiant defense, Kristeen took to her MySpace page and released the following statement.

"Unfortunately, the statement has been perceived as being profane (when, actually, one of the two words in question is a scientific term found in junior high, health class text books, and the other word, I feel most would agree, is lightweight slang) or defamatory.

"What I said was part of a thread of stage statements I made throughout our set. (The statements) were metaphorical and overstated to make an artistic point. The 'offending' statement, in particular, was in no way a literal statement, and was very much in keeping with the tone of my writing in general... Maybe I misjudged... but I meant no harm. I love Morrissey with all of my heart, soul, body, spirit, to the core of my existence and always will."

In excellent news for this blog, our very good friends Girl In A Coma will now be the opening act for the remaining dates on the tour. I just wish they had been the opening act for Morrissey when he was out in LA. Granted, I didn't get to the show until after the opening act, and have no idea if Kristeen is any good, but I actually would have showed up to see Girl In A Coma.

This of course has nothing to do with the fact that Girl In A Coma is from San Antonio and probably can't stand Eva as much as much, but rather the fact that anyone who can find a way to put Amanda LePore in a video is just plain cool. If you don't know the name Amanda LePore, you surely know the face. Check out this video.

I really disliked Kristeen Young when I saw them open for Morrissey in my hometown. I applaud him for letting the band go after the lead singer's remarks.
I Adore the old Moz, btw.

Moz was crucial to my high school years. I love that man.

I saw Morrissey in Merrillville, Indiana, and she did nothing but heckle the crowd (which was applauding and being overall quite receptive to her performance) and basically just acted as if everyone was there to see her. She has an "ok" voice, but her snotty attitude was totally unwarranted.
Morrissey was amazing though! :)
