Billy Sloan of the Glasgow Sunday Mail reports that Marilyn Manson's girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood joins the singer on stage every night during his current tour. Well, almost.
Manson told the Glasgow Sunday Mail: "I've built a robot replica of my girlfriend. She brings me absinthe on stage — like any wonderful girl should.
"There's a very sentimental moment where I slice her head off and perform my sarcastic version of 'Hamlet' with it.
"It's very lifelike. Backstage, people stumble across it and say: 'Hello Evan' — and it's not her. Her response is a strange mix of confusion and amazement."
In 1999, Manson was blamed for being the inspiration for the Columbine high school massacre when two students — said to be fans — shot 13 pupils dead.
And last month a 14-year-old wearing a Manson T-shirt shot four people before killing himself at a school in Cleveland.
Manson told the Glasgow Sunday Mail: "If a kid wants to be violent all they need to do is join the army. I just want people to feel emotion — good or bad."
Now Manson would like to appear in a TV reality show.
He said: "I'm guilty of watching reality television. It's really shocking how fucked up people are.
"I've been offered a lot but always turned them down. But I'd do one if it involved machine guns and hookers."
