TheDailyBeast: Celibate Celebrities

7 of 10


The lead singer of The Smiths became the voice of asexuality and celibacy in the 1980s. “Morrissey doesn’t participate in sex at the moment and hasn’t done so for a while,” former bandmate Johnny Marr told Record Mirror. “He’s had a lot of girlfriends in the past and quite a few men friends. The rest of the band, however, are all sex maniacs.” Morrissey, for his part, confirmed Marr’s statement: “Sex is actually never in my life,” he told Details a decade later. But confusion ensued over the years as Morrissey reportedly made claims about losing his virginity at 13, but then also claiming not to have had any sexual experience until he was 28. Though no one knows exactly what’s going on between Morrissey’s sheets, in his first interview in over a decade, he told NME in 2006, that he gave up on love long ago. “How old are you? 29? Forget it. Buy yourself a nice budgie.”
