Morrissey Says No To Duck Dynasty, Cancels Kimmel

Los Angeles Morrissey fans collectively rolled their eyes today as their temperamental superhero announced he’d be canceling Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance. It isn’t the “smell of burning flesh” like 2009’s Coachella Festival that will force the singer away.
