Marilyn Manson: 'I've not become some safe version of me'

'Coma White' superstar Marilyn Manson has revealed that he hasn't become a 'safer' version of himself over the years and thinks he is still as shocking as ever. 

Speaking to Kerrang! magazine recently, the rocker explained that has has cut out drinking absinthe but nothing else has really changed where his lifestyle and approach to his art are concerned:

"I don't think I've ever given up on myself. I've not become some safe version of me. I think the only dramatic change I've made in the past six years was to stop drinking absinthe. I switched to pot and vodka. We still like to - and when I say 'we', I mean the collective 'we' in my head - f**k sh*t up."

"It's strange. The world changes, but it doesn't really change at all. Everything I could have been mad about when I was younger, I feel the same way about today. The phrase 'ignorance is bliss' was created for a reason. Once you see behind the curtain, it either horrifies you or p**ses you off."
