''I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder''
Morrissey became vegetarian at age 11, encouraged by his mother, also an animal rights activist and vegetarian. He has written many lyrics supporting animal rights, the most notable being Meat is Murder from the album of the same name, and more recently The Bullfighter dies.
Meat products are banned from Morrissey's shows and at a recent festival he left the stage after smelling 'burning flesh', which made him sick.
