Reznor: “Manson Is A Dopey Clown!”
Don’t hold back on what you really think, old bean! Give it to us straight!
Trent Reznor has gone to war with Marilyn Manson once more, this time calling the one-time God Of Fuck a ‘dopey clown’.
Spinner.com is quoting an interview from Mojo magazine in which Reznor describes Manson as “malicious guy and will step on anybody’s face to succeed and cross any line of decency.”
Reznor continues: “Seeing him now, drugs and alcohol now rule his life and he’s become a dopey clown. He used to be the smartest guy in the room. And as a fan of his talents, I hope he gets his shit together.”
“During the (‘Downward Spiral’ tour in ’94 and ’95) we propped them up to get our audience turned on to them and at that time a lot of the people in my circle were pretty far down the road as alcoholics. Not Manson. His drive for success and self-preservation was so high, he pretended to be fucked up a lot when he wasn’t.”
“Things got shitty between us and I’m not blameless. The majority of it though was coming from a resentment guy who finally got out from under the master’s umbrella and was able to stab him in the back.”
