In the MSNBC.com gossip section, there was this little tid bit regarding an affair between Morrissey and Michael Stipe of R.E.M.
"Morrissey has hit out at reports that he had an affair with Michael Stipe, the lead singer of R.E.M. “That’s absolute [bleep], absolute [bleep] and I don’t know why people ever said that, do you?” Morrissey told the Times of London. When asked to address the question of whether he’s gay or straight, he replied, “It’s neither of those things. I’m simply myself, which is inexcusable to many people. I’m not trapped by anything.”"
