Morrissey has called for an apology from NME.

The Smiths singer said that he will end his lawsuit against the magazine if he receives an apology for being allegedly characterised as a racist.

"As the year dies, I return to England to prepare for the High Court circus of the NME case," he said in a statement.

"Instead of simply saying 'sorry' (for re-writing the answers to my last NME interview in 2007 in order to make me sound racist), the imperious NME would rather spend hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pounds in a High Court duel to the death."

The star added: "The fact that they have chosen a court drama over simply apologising reinforces the notion that their original intent all along was to invent a sensation.

"So, here it is... now is the NME's big chance to scorch me off the human map for good. And what a triumph that would be for them. What a proud and eternal boast."
