Because I love Morrissey...

Rocker Morrissey has hit out at rock newcomers the Arctic Monkeys, insisting the band haven't earned their success.

The former The Smiths frontman claims the rockers' sudden success is "unnatural" and undeserved.

Morrissey says: "It's happening all too quickly for them. They haven't proved a thing and they haven't had to work very hard - that must make them insecure.

"It's all a bit unnatural. OK they've sold about 700,000 albums, but it can't be gratifying. They haven't been driving up and down the M1 (UK motorway) for fifteen years."

So how was Moz at SXSW anyway?Collapse )
