Morrissey revealed his stodgy diet, which consists solely of bread, potatoes, pasta and nuts, and said that vegans are "superior beings," NME reported.

The former Smiths frontman made the statements to Fiona Dowell for Tremr.

"I don't eat animals, birds or fish," Morrissey said, adding that he did not consider himself to be vegan, vegetarian or carnivorous. "I'm just me. I refuse to eat anything that had a mother, that's obvious."

Morrissey is known for being a firm animal rights advocate.

He has previously teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and told Rolling Stone magazine that he would never be able to trust a person who "ate animals, birds or fish."

Morrissey made headlines when he canceled an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" after learning that he would be performing on the same night as cast members from "Duck Dynasty," a show about a Louisiana family that made its fortune making products for duck hunters.

He even went as far as to challenge Al Gore, co-founder of the Live Earth concert series, about meat and dairy products being served to show-goers, stating that this would make "a mockery" of the green event.

And while the singer said that "vegans are superior beings" because they were taking a stand for animals and not cashing in on their choices, he admitted that he had always found food to be very difficult.

"I can't eat anything that has any flavor. I've never had a curry, or coffee, or garlic," he said, according to Tremr. "I'm absolutely hopeless when I'm handed a menu in a restaurant. I go directly to the Kiddie's Meals. If I find baked beans then the night is a huge success. If you ever bring me out to dinner it's important that you also bring a toaster."
