Dear Moz, Please Help Me: Singer Comes to Elderly Woman’s Aid

In an incident which could provide an album’s worth of material for the singer, former Smiths frontman Morrissey came to the aid of an elderly woman who collapsed in New York City’s Strand bookstore.

An onlooker said to LGBT website, Queerty:

“Morrissey, who was there alone, immediately rushed to her side and crouched on the ground to see if she was okay. She had just lost her bearings and was fine.

He picked up her stray belongings and asked if he could get her some water or call for help. She declined and collected her things and moved on. But my friend said she touched Morrissey’s cheek in gratitude! Obviously, she didn’t know who he was, just was touched by this act of kindness from a nice British man… He seemed very shaken up and flustered by the incident and left the store soon afterwards without buying anything.”

In related news, Morrissey will soon be undertaking a tour of New Zealand and Australia. The dates are as follows:
