Morrissey has secretly been battling cancer, he reveals to a Spanish newspaper.

The former Smiths frontman says he is fine for the time being but isn't afraid of whatever might come next.

“They have scraped cancerous tissues four times already, but whatever,” he told El Mundo, according to BBC News. “If I die, then I die. And if I don’t, then I don't. Right now I feel good.”

The 55-year-old has been battling poor health for the last couple of years, collapsing on stage in 2009 in London, and canceling the US leg of his tour this June due to a respiratory infection.

“I am aware that in some of my recent photos I look somewhat unhealthy, but that’s what illness can do,” he said. “I’m not going to worry about that, I’ll rest when I’m dead.”

Get well soon!
