Much Music video interview

A short video interview (1.34 mins) appears on Much Music. Couldn't get it to play but here's a transcript thanks to bbser [psycho]logical:

Marilyn Manson: I'm sure by now everyone thinks that I'm a complete and total dick that just kicks everyone out of the band.

Much News: Have you felt like you've ever been anything other than alone in the band?

Marilyn Manson: I always feel like other people are interchangable, it's really about where your heart is. Getting rid of John was very amicable, erm, I think he'll be happier because I wanted to... I didn't want to get stuck into making him something he wasn't. And he's not like me, he's not like anyone else in the band. I don't think he had the same emotional attachment that the rest of us did.

Whereas Twiggy, just didn't want to be there anymore. He wanted to step outside and see if he could do it on his own and you know, he's figuring that out now.

What's next is going to be something completely... more extreme, and more interesting. And with that some of the fat has to be cut.

Personal Jesus previews on Austrian GO TV

The Personal Jesus video has been shown on Austrian music channel GO TV, and the song played on various radio stations. I've just heard it and I like it better than the original version. In the days ahead, I'm sure he'll let us know why he was attracted to that song.
