The star says he was "going too far" during the recording of 'The Golden Age Of Grotesque'...

MARILYN MANSON was hospitalised after “going too far” during the recording of his new album.

The star is now putting the finishing touches to his record, titled ‘The Golden Age Of Grotesque’, in LA.

Writing in his diary on the official Manson website,, he said that a “strenuous” week led to his hospitalisation, but did not give further details.

He said: “This week was strenuous and I landed myself in the hospital as a result of “going too far” in the creation process. I am fine now and glad to be back in the studio. We have just completed the last track for the album and it is my favourite so far.”

The record will be released in the autumn.
