'The BDS movement is "absurd," said British singer Morrissey, 58, in an interview with German magazine Der Spiegel, translated by the Jewish Chronicle.
The outspoken former frontman for The Smiths has performed in Israel several times, most recently last year at the Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv. He continued to rail against BDS, stating: "It is narrow-minded. Being politically correct is incorrect. It means forbidding the freedom of speech. This is how the BDS movement sounds to me."
His newest album, Low in High School, features two tracks which directly reference Israel: "The Girl from Tel Aviv Who Wouldn't Kneel," a song about Holocaust victim Etty Hillesum, and "Israel," which includes the lyrics "In other climes they bitch and whine/Just because you are not like them — Israel, Israel."
