Shock-rocker Marilyn Manson has as many diva stipulations as Jennifer Lopez or MARIAH CAREY - but they're predictably unusual.

The TAINTED LOVE star, noted for his eccentric ways, reportedly refuses to be interviewed in any room which hasn't been cooled to the temperature of a morgue.

A source at a TV station tells British newspaper THE MIRROR, "There are so many specifications, it's mad. And when he's being filmed it has to be in dark flattering lights - he's worse then Mariah or J-LO.

"The obsession with cold is a little spooky. I'm sure nobody dares serve him a drink that isn't packed with ice, but I'd hate to see what happened if they did."
