I don’t usually use posts for news, but this is too wild. Marilyn Manson has announced that he has swine flu.

So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU. I know everyone will suggest that fucking a pig is how this disease was obtained. However, the doctor said, my past choices in women have, in no way contributed to me acquiring this mysterious sickness. Unfortunately, I am going to survive.

Do you think he just got the swine flu for attention, like 99% of the rest of his actions? Will he somehow use this as a way to make himself relevant? Swine flu tour? Swine flu themed album? Pig fucking on stage? All very viable options.
