Greetings! Top of the Morning is your daily AM news round-up. We paid attention overnight while you were sleeping and gathered relevant tidbits to share over that first cup of coffee.

Yesterday, Morrissey opened an online store in the U.K. (Don’t worry America, it’ll be available to us today. Lucky.) Among the new wares, and pictures of the singer displaying his “MEAT FREE” knuckle tattoos, is the following shirt:

If we weren’t so fatigued by this pompous windbag, we might be able to think of a joke or two to go along with his most recent foray into fashion. Although, wait. We did create a few fake headlines for his future exploits. They are the following:

Morrissey Does a Thing

Morrissey Sighs Heavily, Mutters a Foul Curse at His Ringing Phone

Morrissey Stares Forlornly at His TiVo

Morrissey Shakes Fist at Sky When He Sees Person Eat a Burger

Morrissey Washes Twice-Washed Bag of Micro Greens Anyway

Morrissey Talks to Plants, Sulks When They Don’t Answer

We’ll always try to come through for all of you in the clutch. Don’t let Morrissey get you down.

Here’s an adorable picture of Nick Cave and Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead running into each other in New York City. Apparently the two musicians were out getting some errands done in SoHo this past Sunday when they spotted each other and a fan captured the magic.

Meanwhile PJ Harvey is covering Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds‘ “Red Right Hand” for the second season of the BBC drama Peaky Blinders. Smarty pants is putting that honorary degree from Goldsmiths University to good use.

Chris Pratt is kicking off this season of Saturday Night Live on September 27 with Ariana Grande as his musical guest. Both actor and singer had a huge summer with a blockbuster movie and a No. 1 album, respectively, but this still does not explain why Grande continues to wear that cat ears headband all the freaking time.

It turns out that Taylor Swift is rethinking the cover for her upcoming album 1989:

Taylor "Becky" Swift

Swift is, of course, trying to pull a Macaulay Culkin/Ryan Gosling-style move by referring to the popular Tumblr meme, but do you think she knows that all us white girls are Becky?

Also sorry other captions, but this is the best (Dune-related) Kimye caption of all time:
