Miley Cyrus apparently requested that her voice be removed from a track on Morrissey’s album.
he, the former Smiths frontman posted an update from his online portal “Messages from Morrissey”.
“Miley Cyrus now wants to withdraw from the song ‘I Am Veronica’ that she volunteered for backing vocals almost two years ago,” the statement posted on Christmas Eve said.
The news follows an update Morrissey posted regarding his apparent departure from the Los Angeles-based record label, Capitol Records.
“This comes at a time when Morrissey has distanced herself from Capitol Records (Los Angeles), who control the hidden album Bonfire of Teenagers,” the announcement continued.
The information is posted under pictures of Cyrus and Morrissey, they can be seen lying on the floor together.
“Above, Morrissey and Miley in Miley’s performance of ‘I Am Veronica’,” the image was captioned.
It’s not yet known why Cyrus asked for her vocals to be removed, but online fans have given their conjectures.
“I guess she thought it might smear her lovely career,” one fan wrote on Twitter, apparently referring to Morrissey’s recent controversies involving Morrissey’s song. The world is full of boredomfrom his 2004 album You Are The Quarry.
The post on Morrissey’s page continued: “Morrissey has voluntarily parted ways with Maverick/Quest management. Morrissey has also voluntarily withdrawn from any association with Capitol Records (Los Angeles.).”
The update comes 18 months after the announcement of Morrissey’s upcoming album Bonfire of Teenagers.
Morrissey originally announced the album in May 2021 – to be released through BMG Records – but after the label removed him, Capitol Records took over.
The album, which is set to feature an all-star list of contributors (Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Iggy Pop, Cyrus, etc.) has been set for release in February 2023.

However, in November, the singer posted a notice showing some problems: “Bonfire of Teenagers is no longer scheduled for a February release, as the website states. Its fate is completely in the hands of Capitol Records (Los Angeles).”
The former Smiths singer and counterculture icon has often faced criticism, such as when he described the UK government’s response to Covid as akin to slavery last year and in 2020. he wore a badge with the logo of the far-right party For England during an appearance on American television.
