Fans have spotted something strange happening at the merchandise stalls at Morrissey's latest concerts in the States.
Morrissey, who is known for being one of Britain's biggest icons for his contribution to music as lead singer of the Smiths, and his successful solo career which came afterward, has been selling signed albums at his concerts.
Not that weird you say? Well, when they're albums from other music icons such as David Bowie, Lou Reed, and Patti Smith, then maybe your opinion might swiftly change.
Oh, and the albums have all been signed by Morrissey himself, not the actual artists who made the albums.
As you can see from a tweet by a fan at the 'Suedehead' singer's latest show at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Morrissey had signed second-hand copies of David Bowie's 'Aladdin Sane', Lou Reed’s 'Transformer', Patti Smith’s 'Horses', and Iggy and The Stooges' 'Raw Power' all on offer.
And not only that, but the signed albums also come with a heavy price tag - each one setting you back $300 (€270) a pop.
Morrissey is selling classic albums from other artists signed by him on his tour for £300 and it’s the funniest /lamest thing I’ve ever seen.

Granted this might be something different to offer fans at a concert, and maybe the albums might have been owned by Morrissey himself at one stage, but it still seems a little cheeky of him none the less.
The 60-year-old is also grabbing headlines today for wearing a not-so-subtle message on stage. At a recent gig, he wore a "F*** The Guardian" vest, which is aimed at the British newspaper. According to NME, the publication gave him a bad review, and so his hatred began.

Some fans haven't been kind to once-revered singer, with one calling him "an absolute wet wipe."
