Manson: Germs are afraid of me

Marilyn Manson believes drugs and alcohol have made germs "afraid to live" in his body.

Marilyn Manson believes drugs and alcohol have made germs "afraid to live" in his body.

The 43-year-old singer - who has written a number of songs about illegal substances, including 'Dope Show' - claims to have "no health problems" thanks to years of consuming alcohol and taking drugs.

He said: "My body is a place where drugs and alcohol have made germs afraid to live. I have no health problems to speak of, touch wood."

Marilyn is currently dating fashion model and photographer Lindsay Usich, and he is keen to start a family with her so that their little one can "breathe profanity".

He explained: "My girlfriend Lindsay's twin just had a baby and I've started to think that maybe I wouldn't mind passing my demented genius on to some small thing who can set fire and breathe profanity."

Marilyn admits he is still on "good terms" with his ex-wife Dita Von Teese - who he tied the knot with in November 2005 before the pair divorced in 2007 - despite her seeming "p***ed" at him during a recent meeting.

He added to the Observer Magazine: "I'm on good terms with my ex-wife, but I saw her recently at the Met Bar in London and I think there's a part of her that's still p***ed at me.

"I am drawn to women who are independent and creative, which is problematic because it's a struggle, a competition of careers. There's jealousy. And if you don't want to be known as Marilyn Manson's girlfriend, why would you be it?

"I'm not some sort of sexual deviant. I think I would laugh nervously in the face of a threesome. I'm shy. I'm the kind of person who turns the lights out."
