Marilyn Manson has swine flu

Singer says he 'didn't fuck a pig' to catch it

Marilyn Manson – The Beautiful People. From Bauhaus to the sleek, alien Nuremberg Rally stomp of 'The Beautiful People' might seem a giant leap, but there are clear continuities: the rattling tom-toms, the agonized vocals, the sense of the macabre, the powerful feeling of embittered 'outsider-ness'. Most gothic moment: The Hammer Horror 'waaargh's at 1.44. To listen to every song in our Top 20, head to NME.COM/THEOFFICE. Pic: PA Photos
Marilyn Manson has being diagnosed with Swine Flu.

The goth rocker revealed via his Facebook earlier this week (September 21) that he has caught H1N1.

"So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU," he wrote.

"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. M."
