Manson's Abba Crush

GARBAGE star SHIRLEY MANSON was desperate to have a lesbian relationship with ABBA's brown-haired beauty ANNI-FRID LYNGSTAD when she was a teenager.

The WHY DO YOU LOVE ME? singer disgusted by her classmates' obsession with the Swedish band's blonde singer AGNETHA FALTSKOG, because she believed Lyngstad was superior in looks, talent and personality.

The 38-year-old says, "I always loved Frida, the dark-haired singer.

"All the other girls and my sisters loved the beautiful blonde, Agnetha, and it made me angry and upset that no-one love Frida.

"Something instinctive drew me to her. She was the more poignant, beautiful character and she seemed to sing the sadder songs."
