In a true meeting of the minds, Colbert prodded Moz about his hatred of the royal family, being a “legend”, and, of course, the possibility of a Smiths reunion. Colbert also revealed that Morrissey made the entire “Colbert Report” staff eat only vegetarian food while Moz was in the building. The whole thing was deliciously, awkwardly hilarious.
Morrissey and his band (who all wore T-shirts that said “MUGGER”) then performed his relatively new song “People Are the Same Everywhere”, which he also did last year on “Conan”; watch below, along with the interview, via the Audio Perv. He also sang ”I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris” from 2009′s Years of Refusal for a web exclusive.
