    Rocker Marilyn Manson spoke out about that Lana Del Rey video. It was a controversial clip that featured a mock rape and the shock rocker, who often courts controversy, says that is was not meant to be seen nor was it meant to be a Manson video.

    The clip, which horrified many, was shot by horror director Eli Roth.

    Manson told NME, "It wasn't a Marilyn Manson video. The editor of the company that put it out was somebody whose edited my videos, that video was something that was done with a camera that Eli, who's my friend, and I both wanted to test out, so I let him test it out...what they filmed was put in context seemingly as if it were a Marilyn Manson video, and that was in no way the intention."

    He continued, "Eli and I wanted to do a music video with (Lana) but she was being such a problem. Although I still respect her, I'm friends with her. I just left, I was tired, I was not willing to make that part of the video. Eli and I originally had intentions of making a video with her, but that is not the intention that is represented in that film clip because that is not what I filmed, not for my video."

    Manson also said, "But the people put it together with my other clips. And it really strongly stands out of place, it doesn't really make sense. I would not make a video of that nature, nor would Eli. I don't think either of us were ever intending for that to be seen; it was more of a camera test. I'm a person that would beat somebody's ass if they raped somebody that I know. And obviously you can make 'Lana Del Rape' jokes that have been in headlines. I consider her to a friend. Eli's a really good friend of mine and I consider this to be a grand mistake on the person who put it with my videos and I wasn’t very pleased with that and I'm pretty sure the other two people involved were less pleased than I was because I really had nothing to do with it."

    So that's his story.

    What do you think of Marilyn Manson's comments and his side of the story?
