Q:What is his sexual orientation? I remember hearing he wasn't celibate anymore recently? I have no idea if that's true. He has always been an ambiguous figure to me.
Aye, and indeed if I remember rightly, he may not have been completely celibate even in his Smiths days? (If someone who does remember or has more evidence than the salacious gossip that I’m probably relying on that’d be good!). But, yes, he’s such an ambiguous figure and sometimes the more I read the less I understand. There’s a great description of him at the beginning of Mozipedia as a sort of mass of fascinating contradictions. He’s recently called himself ‘humasexual’ - sexually attracted to humans (“but of course, not many”) so I’ll take his word on that :)
Q:I don't know what Moz's sexual orientation is, but when I spoke with another fan about it a couple of years ago, and they were convinced that he is gay and "uses" his celibacy to cover it up. I think that's a really ignorant thing to say about him.
I agree that that’s a fairly silly thing to say about him. I don’t think he’s ever tried to ‘cover up’ anying to do with his sexuality to be honest? I’m not sure that he’d call himself asexual or celibate anymore though - indeed he started to refute the celibacy thing in interviews every now and then going back as far as the 90s, if I remember rightly. His statement on True to You clarified that he was ‘humasexual’ that is, sexually attracted to humans (I’ve said more about this before if you go back 1 or two pages on my blog). Which I suppose you may interpret as Bi- or pan-sexual (if he has a preference I have no idea sorry)

What is Jake’s instagram (sorry, I’m insta-illiterate)?
I think it’s @mrjakewalters or something like that: I’ve only ever viewed it through his twitter account as I don’t have Instagram and I don’t understand it much yet either or how I can view it without going through a link? AH no I’ve found it! If you type instagram.com/mrjakewalters then you can view all sorts of photos of his (?) son, but also pretty photography and a dedication to photographing and uploading photographs taken of cock-based Graffiti which is nice.
Q:I don't know how Jake identifies regarding sexual preferences, but he has bisexual leanings. He is currently married to a woman and has a baby (I follow him in instagram, although it is because I love his photographic work; promise), but given his innuendos when Moz's autobiography came out, he is not ashamed or denying his past with Moz.
I had assumed he was, too (because I too often take a peek at his Instagram, purely out of a love for photography, of course)(nought to do with nosiness nor obsession) and he does appear to have a partner and a child. I have also admired his lovely innuendos. He seems like an all round great guy and I like to think he and moz still talk.
Q:Joz or Damoz?
Oooohhhh difficult question! Well, I really like the idea of Moz being happy and in love, especially if that serves as a potential reason for his current quietness. I like to think of him in domestic bliss in a cottage in Switzerland. However, I know so little about Damon and Damoz - indeed, that it exists is purely speculative. Whereas, with Joz, I’m totally enamoured with the passages describing those years in Autobiography. I’m fascinated with what I know of Jake (which isn’t loads but its considerably more than what I know of Damon.) I also adore all the songs that allegedly reference him, the idea that Jake is referenced in the title of ‘vauxhall and I’. I also adore Morrissey’s creative output and how he looked during those years. It’s my favourite era for Morrissey, probably, and Jake features heavily in my association of those years, so it has to be Joz. Thank you for the question!

I sympathise, deeply. I have been known to awake from a dream screaming something similar.
It’s no secret that I would be on the next bus to his house.
