(Metal Hammer) Marilyn Manson says he hates being branded a celebrity as anyone can be famous these days. And he reports that he feels an obligation to be a rock star - even though it sometimes weighs heavy on him as there's more to him than some people might imagine.

He tells Dazed: "I really despise when people refer to me as a celebrity, because anyone can be a celebrity in this era. It's the very definition of the name Marilyn Manson, so this isn't new - anyone can be famous at any point by dying and being in an obituary or by killing someone and being on the front page. So I hate that term.

"It's been a rough year for me, since a lot of friends and family of mine have gone away. It's awful, but it lays a burden on me. I have this obligation to be a rock star.

"It's so vexing, to make sure I enjoy the dream while it's happening, because sometimes there's a lot going on, bad and good, and as a human being, I do have more than one dimension."

He continues: "But I'm fortunate that people are still charmed by my childlike humor, because I've never felt that I had immensely normal, handsome looks. I just let my sense of humor and my utter lack of respect for rules define me." Read more here.
