MARILYN MANSON: 'The Hole Is Where The Heart Is'

Austin Scaggs of Rolling Stone magazine's "Smoking Section" recently got a preview of MARILYN MANSON's new album, "Eat Me, Drink Me", at a Los Angeles-area recording studio. Scaggs writes that he was "blown away" by the CD, which includes a six-minute epic, "If I Was Your Vampire", with the lyric "The hole is where the heart is." "If anyone thought Manson was down for the count, think again," raves Scaggs.

"Eat Me, Drink Me" is tentatively due for release this spring and will follow up 2003's "The Golden Age of Grotesque". Manson told in the fall of 2005 that he expected his next record to be "something above and beyond and different — sonically, emotionally — than anything I've done."

Manson recently asked the court to block any future claim for spousal support by his estranged wife, burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese. According to, which obtained court documents, Manson has also requested that Teese pay for her own lawyers in the couple's divorce proceedings. Also in the documents, Manson claims that he and Von Teese split up on Halloween, while Von Teese maintains that they separated on Christmas Eve. Both have cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the breakup of the marriage.
