On May 14 2011, Morrissey placed the following statement official statement on the website True-To-You.net:
The strangest thing about this statement was that NOBODY had ever heard of the MorrisseysWorld blog, so the statement actually brought attention to it. Morrissey NEVER issues statements to deny authorship of such things, so a number of people had their collective interests aroused by this extraordinary denial, and started to keep an eye on the MorriseysWorld blog.
Over the following three months, despite many reservations amongst fans that Morrissey would do such a thing, it became blatantly obvious that Morrissey himself was behind the MorrisseysWorld blog. (Evidence can be read here: http://followingthemozziah.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/history-of-morrisseysworld.html and further evidence here: http://www.morrisseysworldismoz.blogspot.co.uk/)
On August 22nd 2011, Morrissey asked his fans, via the MorrisseysWorld blog, to take either a single RED ROSE or a single WHITE ROSE to his concerts. Morrissey explained that he wanted roses, in honour of his literary hero, Oscar Wilde, who had a theme of roses running through his work.
The MorrisseysWorld blogsite has now disappeared, but Morrissey's BLUE ROSE SOCIETY lives on, and when Morrissey next tours, you can join the Blue Rose Society by simply taking either a RED, WHITE or BLUE ROSE to a concert.
Members of the Blue Rose Society can be found on twitter following '@BlueRoseSociety', or use the hashtag #BlueRoseSociety .
