Morten Harket in 2012, at 52
Morten Harket of a-ha - who has a new solo album Out Of My Hands, released on April 24 - is dishing on Morrissey. For almost 30 years Moz has milked the "is he or isn't he" mill. Here's what Morten says (note he's being a bit vague or the translation is whack):
He almost had an erection around me! We met up in New Orleans sometime in the eighties.... he thought it was a bit difficult I think, the whole thing. He said something… I thought he was decidedly on the gay side.- from the Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang
Really, can we blame Moz? Here is Morten in the 80s...
The new album has a track called Listening, written for Morten by his peers Pet Shop Boys.
