The Rock Is Dead hitmaker, 46, opens up about his unlikely crush on the 56 year old in a new chat with fashion magazine i-D, in which he admits he would like to check out her new album, Rebel Heart.

The conversation then takes a surprising turn as Manson reveals his sexual attraction to the Queen of Pop.

He says, "I'm kind of interested in this Madonna record. She looks hotter than ever. I'd also like to let it be known that I still have a crush on Madonna and I would definitely fornicate with her."

Madonna responded to the unexpected proposition via Instagram on Friday (08May15), when she posted a photo of Manson alongside his quote and commented, "Um.........thanks! @marilynmanson".

The rocker has been single since splitting from photographer Lindsay Usich earlier this year (15), while Madonna previously dated dancer Brahim Zaibat for three years before calling off the relationship at the end of 2013.
