Thursday Musical Interlude: Sweet tribute, or offensive mockery?

By | April 3, 2008

Pursuant to a conversation in the Fatshionista LiveJournal Community, I submit the following: this is the 1992 video for Morrissey’s song “You’re The One For Me, Fatty”. As critical as I am of pop culture (and not-so-pop culture), I’ve never been able to formulate a definitive opinion on whether this song and video are meant to be laughing with or laughing at the romantically-inclined fat girls of the world.

So what’s your opinion on this fine bit of songwriting?

(My Morrissey adoration is significant, so any verdict I present is subject to this conflict of interest, and is not objective in any way.)
