Last month it was reported that Universal Music Publishing Group asked for This charming charlie - a Peanuts comic strip on Tumblr based on lyrics of The Smiths - to be taken down. But now, Morrissey has said on the True To You fansite he is not responsible for wanting to shut down the site.

It reads: "Morrissey is delighted and flattered by the Peanuts comic strip with its use of Morrissey-Smiths lyrics, and he hopes that the strips remain." Also Morrissey is represented by Warner-Chappell Publishing, not Universal. Though, they've now stopped their requests for its removal.

His much-anticipated autobiography is released on 18th October via Penguin Classics.
