Shock rocker Marilyn Manson went out of his way to keep record executives from hearing a sneak preview of his latest album THE GOLDEN AGE OF GROTESQUE.

The album has now shot to the top of the music charts but controversial Manson played a waiting game with his record company, who were keen to hear snippets from the long-awaited long-player.

The BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE singer says, "I was very vague and evasive with the record company.

"I would give them recordings of me talking to my cat. I would say, 'This is the single,' and they'd laugh, 'Yeah, ha ha, that's funny. But really, where is it?'"
