Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has aimed further criticism at the Grammy Awards, calling his performance with Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham at this year's ceremony "an utter waste of time".

Their song was cut short by the closing credits and a commercial break. Speaking to 3 News in New Zealand - Reznor said that he spent a "long time" discussing the pros and cons of playing the ceremony with Josh Homme, eventually agreeing to the performance so they could "do something with integrity on our terms".

However, after the performance was cut from the broadcast, Reznor has now commented that he will never work with the Grammys again. "...lesson learned," he stated. "And the other thing is if we hadn't have done it, I'd be thinking, 'Well, what would have happened it we would have done it?' So I don't regret that we did it, but would I ever – in any situation – ever consider possibly patronising that event in any form? Absolutely not."

Reznor recently received an apology from the executive producer of the Grammy Awards, with Ken Ehrlich saying: "I'm sorry he was upset... The number was about five, six minutes long, and we got to within a minute twenty of the end. We got as close as we could possibly get."

The Nine Inch Nails frontman then spoke about teaming up with director David Fincher again, following The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, to work on the soundtrack for his new movie Gone Girl, saying they spent most of January working on ideas. "...always the first part of any work we do on a film isn't so much traditional composing as it is trying to decide what instruments to use, what kind of sonic power to dive into. Is it more organic? Is it more electronic?" he revealed. He added that the soundtrack is likely to be both "mellow" and "noisy".
