UPDATE: Despite earlier reports to the contrary, Morrissey's publicist told BBC News that the singer was not hospitalized after all.

But he is battling double pneumonia, as previously reported, and his upcoming San Francisco show is still postponed until May 1. Morrissey has canceled 21 gigs so far this year due to his illnesses, according to BCC News.

Less than two months after canceling shows because of a bleeding ulcer, Morrissey is now reportedly battling pneumonia in both lungs.

The 53-year-old singer is being treated at a hospital in San Francisco and has rescheduled another concert date, according to a statement posted on fan site True to You. Morrissey insists he'll be well again in time to perform at Mexico's Vive Latino Festival on March 14.

The former Smiths frontman originally canceled shows in January after it was revealed he was suffering from a throat condition known as Barrett’s esophagus, which is often associated with lethal cancer, along with the bleeding ulcer.

Morrissey was slated to perform at the Regents Ballroom in San Francisco this past weekend, but the show has now been postponed until May 1.

The singer has been the subject of a bevy of headlines lately, not all of which have centered on his health issues. At a Los Angeles concert on March 1, the outspoken vegetarian slammed Beyonce for wearing handbags that he said aid in the extinction of the rhino. In keeping with this fervent vegetarianism, Morrissey canceled his appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" shortly before his Beyonce rant after finding out the host was also scheduled to have the cast of hunting show "Duck Dynasty" appear on the same epsiode. Morrissey has also ignited feuds with Paul McCartney and the queen of England, who he said "wears enough fur to blanket most of Russia."

  • The Smiths- How Soon Is Now? HQ

    DISCLAIMER: I do not own the song "How soon is now". It is owned by The Smiths and their label. If you like it, subscribe me;) "How Soon Is Now?" is a song by the British alternative rock band The Smiths. Written by Smiths singer Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, it was originally a B-side of the 1984 single "William, It Was Really Nothing". "How Soon Is Now?" was subsequently featured on the compilation album Hatful of Hollow and on American, Australian and Warner UK editions of the group's second album Meat Is Murder (1985). It was belatedly released as a single in the UK in 1985, where it reached number 24 on the UK Singles Chart. Sire Records chief Seymour Stein called it "the 'Stairway to Heaven' of the Eighties", while co-writer Johnny Marr described it as "possibly our most enduring record. It's most people's favourite, I think." Despite its prominent place in The Smiths' repertoire, however, it is not generally considered to be representative of the band's style. Although a club favourite, "How Soon Is Now?" did not chart as well as writers Morrissey and Marr had expected. Most commentators put this down to the fact that the song had been out on vinyl in a number of forms before being released as a single in its own right. The original track runs for nearly seven minutes; however, the 7" single edit cut the length down to under four minutes. The complete version is generally used on compilations. The song has been widely praised for the artistry of its lyrics <b>...</b>
