Famous Feuds: Robert Smith vs. Morrissey

The Cure's Robert Smith stated "If Morrissey says not to eat meat, then I'll eat meat; that's how much I hate Morrissey". Yet years later, to Entertainment Weekly, Smith says, "He was constantly saying horrible things about [The Cure]...In the end, I kind of snapped and started retaliating. And it turned into some kind of petty feud. I've never liked anything he's done musically, but I don't have any kind of strong feelings of animosity towards him as a person because I've never met him." Whereas, Morrissey refers to Robert Smith as a "whingebag", which is slang for: one who gets all sentimental, cries when drunk, is known as a complainer, and in general, is a total whiner .
