Published Sep 22, 2009Perhaps the H1N1 virus is siding with threatened music journalists, as it's chosen its newest celebrity target to infect: aging shock rocker and outspoken journo-hater Marilyn Manson.
In typical shock-schlock fashion, Manson took to his MySpace blog to share the news:
So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU. I know everyone will suggest that fucking a pig is how this disease was obtained. However, the doctor said, my past choices in women have in no way contributed to me acquiring this mysterious sickness. Unfortunately, I am going to survive.
At this point there is no word if Manson's sickness will put a halt to his ongoing world tour.
Thanks to Consequence of Sound for the tip.
