For some reason - maybe he's just read the new book - Manson talked about Harry Potter at the Kerrang event. He said the phenomenon surrounding the teen wizard is wrong, adding: 'I get blamed for being bad but this kid is practicing witchcraft from a very early age which is totally unacceptable.'

Manson Making Movies

In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Manson talks of his film project, PHANTASMAGORIA: The Visions Of Lewis Carroll. He also has immediate plans for an art gallery opening and the release of his first fine art book of paintings.

PHANTASMAGORIA: The Visions Of Lewis Carroll, consists of four short films, set to release this winter on his website, followed by a feature length film.

Manson has come to a crossroads in his career. 'I no longer want to make art that other people - particularly record companies - are turning into a product,' he says. 'I just want to make art.' And he's invented a new genre for his new breed of art: 'horripilation.'

'It's horrifying, and it's depilatory,' he explains. 'It will horrify the hair off of your legs.'

As well as the plans to open an art gallery and publish a book of paintings, he intends to convert his basement wine cellar into an opium den ('I don't drink wine').

He's grown a goatee beard for an upcoming cameo role opposite Lucy Liu in Rise. And there are eighteen new songs completed. 'It's not like I'm going to stop making music and start knitting,' he says. 'I just don't think the world is worth putting the music into right now.'
