Stalker is always remarking on celebs and superstars who are keen on mushrooms.
So here is a counterweight to that. Morrissey, the vegan frontman of The Smiths so many years ago, one might expect to beef out his meals with mushrooms. But oh no, the pop star contrarian interviewed in The Sunday Times managed to have a pop at mushrooms.
‘He also has a dislike of mushrooms -“Oh they are horrific, fungus - truffles make me cry. I say to people, ‘What are you doing eating fungus?’ Truffles shock me and the smell. Ewwww. Garlic is also horrific.”’
Bread and potatoes, that’s what the singer lives on - must just be in his Irish blood! We’ll not be expecting Morrissey to front the Just Add Mushrooms campaign anytime soon.
