Morrissey Embraces His Love Of Small Fat Things

By: Mike Barthel / January 12, 2009


Between the baby on the album cover and the small dogs running around the set of this video—which looks a lot like it was left over from Elastica’s “Connection” shoot—Morrissey has apparently decided to counteract his increasingly weathered-looking appearance (apparently even the most foppish Englishmen start to look like cabdrivers as they age) with an abundance of chubby youth. “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris” isn’t the best single from the album, it’s just the most Smiths-sounding one, but anything that results in a clarinet solo followed by an acrobatic tambourine flip is fine with me.
