"I just don't think the world is worth putting music into right now. I no longer want to make art that other people--particularly record companies--are turning into a product." So Marilyn Manson said to RollingStone.com. However, it doesn't mean that he will entirely give up on music, rather he is getting ready to play a round of high-profile festival dates in Europe this summer and has nearly 20 new songs ready for release.
On top of that, the singer said he "just wants to make art." And so, he's focusing on filmmaking. Evidently, Manson will have his vignettes "Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll" release this winter on his Website, MarilynManson.com. "It's horrifying, and it's depilatory," he told RollingStone.com about that new stuff.
