In Morrissey’s chorus to the final song on THE QUEEN IS DEAD he observes that:


s
ome girls are bigger than others
some girls mothers are bigger than
other girls mothers


When comparing celebrities, the words "bigger than" mean more famous, more beloved, etc. ... 
 

Princess Diana - the world's most photographed girl - was certainly "bigger than" other girls. ... 
 

Mother Teresa - the Mother Superior to nearly 4,000 nuns in the Missionaries Of Charity serving in 123 countries - was "bigger than other girls mothers." 

The death of the biggest girl will be followed within a week by the death of the biggest mother of girls. ...





Within days, the death of the world's biggest girl (Princess Diana) is followed by the death of the world's biggest mother of girls (Mother Teresa).  
In Morrissey's chorus, the line "some girls are bigger than others" is followed by the line "some girls mothers are bigger than other girls mothers." ...




Morrissey's lyrics begin by proclaiming the thing he has just discovered - "some girls are bigger than others" - is the number one concern in human history:


From the ice-age to the dole-age,

there is but one concern
and I have just discovered:
some girls are bigger than others


With a reported television audience of 2.5 billion viewers worldwide, the funeral of the world's biggest girl was the most watched single-event in human history.

Morrissey's final verse on THE QUEEN IS DEAD mentions two people: 


1. Someone who "opened a crate of ale", (Anthony)

2. Someone who is Egyptian, (Cleopatra)


As Anthony said to Cleopatra

as he opened a crate of ale: 
some girls are bigger than others
some girls are bigger than others
some girls mothers are bigger than
other girls mothers


Princess Diana's death will be accompanied by the death of two people:


1. Someone who will drink too much alcohol, (driver Henri Paul)

2. Someone who is Egyptian, (Dodi Fayed)





The final verse mentions two people: an Egyptian (Cleopatra) and someone (Anthony) who opened a crate of ale.  
Diana was killed with two people: an Egyptian (Dodi Fayed) and someone (Henri Paul) who drank far too much. ...

Morrissey provided this explanation when asked for the meaning of SOME GIRLS ARE BIGGER THAN OTHERS: 


"I'm realizing things about women that I never realized before and 'SOME GIRLS ARE BIGGER THAN OTHERS'
 is just taking it down to the basic absurdity of recognizing the contours to one's body.  The fact that I've scuttled
 through 26 years of life without ever noticing that the contours of the body are different is an outrageous farce!"

 - Morrissey. 

 
- NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS.  June 7, 1986. 


Morrissey's explanation echoes the New York Times review of the only Jayne Mansfield film with "GIRL" in the title: 


"The recognized fact that women are shaped somewhat differently from men is the only apparent justification
 for Jayne Mansfield's being in THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT."

 
- NEW YORK TIMES.  February 2, 1957. 


In her era, Jayne Mansfield epitomized Morrissey's explanation for SOME GIRLS ARE BIGGER THAN OTHERS. ...  


"Among her Hollywood rivals, (Marilyn Monroe, Sheree North, and Mamie Van Doren), Jayne stood out with her hour-glass figure. 
 ... her bust was the biggest in Hollywood while her waist was the smallest. ... by 1957 Jayne's measurements were 41-18-35."

 
- JAYNE MANSFIELD - A Bio-Bibliography.  Bio-Bibliographies in the Performing Arts, Number 60.  By Jocelyn Faris.  1994.


"As an actress and nightclub performer, Mansfield sought to capitalize on her voluptuosly hyper-feminine figure."

Jayne Mansfield is dancer Cleo Patrick who buries her pet snake next to a pet rabbit named "Satin."

Jayne Mansfield's fatal car crash was crash number three in a two-week span for her boyfriend Sam Brody. ...

Brody's three car-crashes seemingly fulfilled the curse brought on by his defiance of Satanist Anton Lavey. ...

Anton Lavey was the founder/leader of the modern Church of Satan and the author of THE SATANIC BIBLE. ...




"Jayne lived with awful dread during the last year of her life when she believed that a curse had been put on her. ... 

She traced all her present difficulties back to the fall of 1966 when she and Sam Brody attended the San Francisco
Film Festival.  At that time a press agent invited the couple to visit Anton LaVey, the Devil, who was head of a black
magic cult which met at his home.  While there Brody touched a silver chalice and two skulls which were lying on
LaVey's mantel.  Brody had been informed beforehand by the Devil, as he prefers being called, that a curse had
been placed upon those objects and that anyone would die as a result of touching them.  Brody laughed and said
he wasn't superstitious.  Then the Devil remarked that [Brody] and Jayne would both be killed tragically and
suddenly within a year. ... 

Almost a year later, Anton LaVey called upon Jayne at her fabulous home, asking if she would don a bikini and pose
with him wearing his Devil costume, which consisted of a cape and a headpiece with horns, over a robe-like garment. 
He wanted Jayne to pose with the silver chalice and skulls.  She preferred wearing a dress and agreed to the rest, with
a feeling of obligation to the press agent who arranged the meeting.  After this, Jayne, Brody, and Jayne's children
entertained the Devil and served refreshments.  Five hours later Jayne and Brody were in a car accident which
completely demolished the brand new Masserati Brody had given Jayne, and which he was driving.  A week later Brody,
while driving his own car, was hit again, and he suffered a broken leg and ribs.  A week later both Jayne and Brody were
killed in a crash on the way to New Orleans.

Now let us recall the car accidents in a series of three, each spaced seven days apart.  I don't know much about Ju Ju
and Voo Doo, but I do know that exact spaces of time are a necessary contingent upon the success of curses."

- Evelyn McKeever.  SEARCH MAGAZINE.  May 1968.





Jayne Mansfield's fatal car crash seemingly fulfilled a Satanic curse cast by Anton Lavey, the founder and leader of The Church of Satan and author of The Satanic Bible.
