    Morrissey, who canceled a bunch of shows last year due to a variety of health issues, like Barrett's esophagus, a condition which makes things like swallowing hard and leads to chest pain and vomiting, in addition to being linked to cancer in some cases.

    The singer has now confirmed that he had cancerous tissue removed during four biopsies.

    He told a Spanish newspaper that "I've had cancerous tissue cut off on four occasions now, but what more can you do? If I die, then I die. And if not, then I don't. At the moment, I feel well. I'm aware that the last photos that were published of me I looked worse but that's what ill people look like. I'm not going to worry about it. I'll relax when I'm dead."

    We hope Morrissey's health improves, even if his attitude about things seems a bit cavalier.

    Have you ever seen Morrissey live? If so, how was he?
