Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has slammed BRITNEY SPEARS' surprise wedding to KEVIN FEDERLINE, labelling the pop babe's big day "terrible".

The TOXIC singer and her lover of five months brought forward their marriage ceremony to 18 September (04) and sold exclusive pictures to America's PEOPLE magazine and British publication OK!.

And in response to seeing photographs of the wedding tracksuits sported by Spears and Federline, the TAINTED LOVE superstar is planning a traditional Christian service to Playboy beauty Dita Von Teese.

Manson says, "I found that really terrible. Ultimately, I suppose it's whatever makes you happy but I do have an old-fashioned sense of tradition - although it's not always what everyone might find conventional.

"If you're going to do something like get married, it should have a sense of celebration to it. It should be grand - it doesn't have to be in tracksuits."
