According to Spinner.com, NINE INCH NAILS mastermind Trent Reznor has slammed one-time protégé, Marilyn Manson, in a new interview with U.K.'s Mojo magazine, calling the shock-rocker "a malicious guy and will step on anybody's face to succeed and cross any line of decency." Reznor added, "Seeing him now, drugs and alcohol now rule his life and he's become a dopey clown. He used to be the smartest guy in the room. And as a fan of his talents, I hope he gets his shit together."Trent continued, "During the ['Downward Spiral' tour in '94 and '95] we propped them up to get our audience turned on to them and at that time a lot of the people in my circle were pretty far down the road as alcoholics. Not Manson. His drive for success and self-preservation was so high, he pretended to be fucked up a lot when he wasn't." "Things got shitty between us and I'm not blameless," Reznor admitted. "The majority of it though was coming from a resentment guy who finally got out from under the master's umbrella and was able to stab him in the back."
