When he lashes out his barbed tongue, British indie-pop icon Morrissey isn’t one to leave any fellow singer, politician or even one of his opening act‘s wigs left straight. The outspoken crooner gave his latest interview to Australian site, and during it he actually heaps some praise on fellow meat avoider Miley Cyrus.

Moz was given word by the outlet that Miley has taken to performing one of his songs (with The Smiths), “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out,” live on occasion. When asked if there any cons to Cyrus belting out the classic tune, Morrissey replied, “No cons whatsoever! Anyone who refuses to eat animals, fish and birds is fantastic by me!”

2016 presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, alas, weren’t so lucky. Below, see what Bernie Sanders fan Morrissey, who resides in Los Angeles, had to say about the state of this year’s US election:

It’s a mistake to ever expect American politics to make sense. They are obviously rigged. People will now vote for Thump in order to stop Clinton, or they will vote for Clinton to stop Thump, which means that people only vote in order to stop someone who is bad, but they do not vote for someone because they are good. Bernie Sanders was America’s only chance for positive change, but he was dismissed by the media and although his success story was extraordinary he was not what the establishment wanted because he is not a billionaire and he is not a warmonger. It is CNN, really, who decide upon the final nominees. For example, each time Bernie won in the primaries the CNN headline would be BAD NIGHT FOR HILLARY, yet when Clinton won, the headline would not mention Bernie, therefore it is planted in everyone’s mind that American politics belongs to Clinton and not to Sanders. Politically, America must remain narrow. It is obvious that America as a whole does not want either Thump or Clinton, and the November announcement of the new President will be a black cloud across America. Nobody believes any more.

Moz for Prez in 2020, anyone?
