    Morrissey refuses to play nice. The singer has turned down yet another request by Coachella organizers to reunite The Smiths for the annual, two-weekend festival in California.

    He was offered a massive paycheck to reform the band and the powers-that-be offered to ban meat from the site, as he is an ardent vegetarian. That's a big concession right there, but still, he said no, since he and his former songwriting partner Johnny Marr refuse to revisit their past…

    ...to the dismay of fans!

    A rep for Mozz said, "Morrissey has refused a Smiths headline offer for this year's Coachella Festival."

    Do you think Morrissey will ever relent and give in?
