Marilyn Manson: Marriage isn't for me

Marilyn Manson is hard to date and isn't up for the commitment of marriage.

The controversial musician wed burlesque star Dita Von Teese in 2005 but they split a year later. He's also been engaged to actresses Rose McGowan and Evan Rachel Wood, but says he won't be popping the question again.

"No, I don't think I want to be committed again. I am flypaper for crazy b***hes. Am I hard to date? Sh*t, yeah. Do I have a hard-on every day? Sh*t, yeah. There you go: Put that on a T-shirt," Marilyn outlined to Details magazine.

Although marriage is not on his mind, Marilyn is currently loved up with photographer Lindsay Usich.

He's also busy with work and is expected to drop his ninth studio album, The Pale Emperor, later this week.

It's his first record in three years, with the 46-year-old dipping his toes into the world of acting during his musical hiatus.

Last year he guest starred in the final season of TV show Sons of Anarchy, where he played a high ranking member of a neo-Nazi prison sect. He's previously stated that he took the role to make his dad proud, and reveals the end result was even better than expected.

"He loved it. Dad used to ride a bike, and Sons of Anarchy is his favourite show. I went to Ohio for my mom's funeral, and I just wanted to do something to take his mind off things. I'm sitting at the table with my manager in my parents' house, and he got a message that I was going to be on," he recalled.

"Dad got very excited. My manager said, 'It gets better: You're the head of the Aryan Nation, and you get paid for it.'"
