According to The Pulse Of Radio, Marilyn Manson has discussed his long and turbulent friendship with Courtney Love in a new interview with Esquire, saying that the two rockers "never really had a falling out" as often reported. He explained, "We've always been weird with each other, because she's slept with pretty much every one of my friends, supposedly. Not me, though. She, one time, told me she was mad at me because I didn't want to fuck her and I was smarter than her. I said, 'Well, you kind of proved your own point right there on that one.'"Manson and Love both landed roles on the most recent season of "Sons Of Anarchy", with Manson saying, "We didn't work any scenes together, but I saw her on the red carpet. Her dress broke, and I said, 'You okay? Your pussy didn't show, did it?' and she said, 'No,' and I went, "Thank God! That would've been horrible!" That was the only time I fucked with her. Other than that, I'm cool with Courtney." Manson also seems to have buried the hatchet with another one-time friend, SMASHING PUMPKINS frontman Billy Corgan. Last month, Manson joined the SMASHING PUMPKINS onstage for a performance of "Ava Adore" in London. Manson said, "I hadn't seen him in 15 years. I had forgotten how close we were, having not seen him in so long. He's the one who taught me how to play guitar, so if it sucks or it's good, it's his fault." Manson also clarified his comments in a recent interview in which he claimed to have invented the term "grunge." He remarked, "I think I actually wrote 'grungy.' But it is pretty amusing that that became a headline… I merely claimed that I popularized the word, which is pretty much not accurate, considering the distribution of the periodical that I wrote it in. But I like to self-aggrandize." Manson released his ninth studio album, "The Pale Emperor", on Tuesday (January 20). He just kicked off a headlining U.S. tour that brings him to Philadelphia on Friday (January 23).
