Morrissey has denied that Miley Cyrus has pulled out of a guest appearance on her upcoming album, citing her political stance, but said it was “not right at all”.
In a lengthy statement posted Thursday, Smith’s former frontman also attacked “cancelling Vulture,” saying, [him] It’s not in circulation.”
Morrissey, 63, announced last month that Cyrus had asked him to be removed from his unreleased album, Bonfire of Teenagers.
Cyrus’ decision, he said, was when he parted ways with his label, Capitol Records.
In a new post shared on his website on Friday night, Morrissey said Cyrus, 30, has decided not to appear on the album due to personal conflicts unrelated to him.
“To tell the truth, Miley declined for reasons unrelated to me due to a major conflict with a key figure in The Circle,” he wrote, without divulging any details about the “private battle.” He added.
