And the star is still hard at work on his new album...

MARILYN MANSON is to showcase his first art exhibition in August.

The singer, who is currently putting the finishing touches to his new album ‘The Golden Age Of Grotesque’, has posted images of some of the paintings on his official website, .

Manson said the exhibition will take place at the Tamara Bane Gallery in Los Angeles in mid-August.

Elsewhere, work on ‘The Golden Age Of Grotesque’ continues at pace, with two more songs written.

He commented: “The band has written two more songs and I am working on the musical intro of the album today. I foresee a trip to Europe needed to capture the charming atmosphere of decay I am seeking for this one.”
