Count Morrissey among those who have an issue with Sam Smith and Kim Petras‘ Grammy performance, which was deemed “evil” by Republic Sen. Ted Cruz for its supposed promotion of satanism.

A statement posted to the ex-Smiths vocalist’s Morrissey Central website reads, “Capitol Records (Los Angeles) proudly promotes Sam Smith’s ‘satanism’; yet they consider the honest truth of Morrissey’s factual Bonfire of Teenagers to be their biggest threat and they will not release it despite their contractual obligation and promise to do so.”

Bonfire of Teenagers is Morrissey’s new album, which he claims has been shelved by Capitol Records.

A previous Morrissey Central post reads, “Morrissey has said that although he does not believe that Capitol Records in Los Angeles signed Bonfire of Teenagers in order to sabotage it, he is quickly coming around to that belief.”

According to Morrissey Central, Bonfire of Teenagers was set to feature guest vocals from Miley Cyrus, who later requested to be removed from the album.
