This is Marilyn Manson, how are you doing Mary Anne? Sorry I couldn't be there to give you a hard time, sexually harass you and make the (Kerrang) awards show as uncomfortable and special as I always like to.

But I will see you guys in the UK soon enough and thanks to the Radio One Rock Show and all the listeners once again for supporting me, Marilyn Manson, and thanks for making Tainted Love a one-hit wonder once again. And I will be back there to rock you *beep beep beep* soon enough.
