“Indulgently Jake and I test how far each of us can go before ‘being dwelt in’ causes cries of intolerable struggle, but our closeness transcends such visitations.” One part of the book, published by Penguin Classics, tackles the issue of Morrissey’s sexuality head on when he and Walters are asked if they are lovers when boarding a flight.“‘Well,’ says the woman in the British Airways lounge, ‘you’re either very close brothers or lovers.'” Morrissey writes. ’ I imprudently reply – always ready with the pointlessly pert, whether sensible or not.” Morrissey is set to launch his eagerly-awaited autobiography with a book signing in Sweden today (October 17).Not bad for a guy who grew up wanting to play professional golf until a wake-boarding accident derailed that plan. Glamour: Since "Beachin'" is such a huge hit, what three material things would you take with you if you were stranded on a deserted island? Jake: She's really into stories, and everything from . When we're listening to the radio and one of my songs comes on, she'll be in the backseat playing with her i Pad and then say, "There's Daddy." She knows it's me, but she doesn't freak out about it.The only alternative for the strikingly handsome husband and father? Jake: A Meryl Haggard CD, a cooler of Budweiser, and my dog. Glamour: You're about to celebrate three years of marriage to your wife, Lacey, on May 7. Jake: It has taught me how to be patient, be understanding, be fair, be a better listener, and just forgive and forget. Once you get married, it's a commitment and under God of saying "I do," and being married is not something that I think comes naturally to people because there's so many things that come along with it.
In stark contrast to his prior singles, and to the bulk of country radio's uptempo fare, the sparse "What We Ain't Got" is an unconventional choice to follow up the Number One "Beachin'." In a format where summer songs have become as plentiful as grains of sand, Owen's "Beachin'" stood out like the hot blonde on the crowded beach, thanks to his authentic, suntan-oil-smooth delivery.Dressed in a stained short-sleeve work shirt and shorts, he certainly looks the epitome of the "right on, dude" Moondoggie.With his Vero Beach, Florida, roots, long hair and stoner speech — "I have done my share of weed," he offers — it's a justified observation."I take a lot of pride in being a pretty good singer, and songs like ' Barefoot Blue Jean Night' and ' Beachin',' where I'm kind of just talking, don't showcase that.For the first time in my career, I feel like it's imperative for me to put out a song that offers some validity."Which is precisely the goal of his latest single.
