Manson Opens Up About Columbine Blame

Shock rocker MARILYN MANSON has dismissed feeling guilt after the Columbine school shooting, insisting he has suffered enough "bulls**t and torment" from critics. The singer, whose controversial music was held partially responsible by some for the 1999 tragedy, is still furious he was unfairly accused. The finger was pointed at Manson because the gunmen were said to be fans. He fumes, "I always knew that I never felt guilty or that I did something wrong. I despised people who accused me of doing that. The whole point of my name was to make a statement about the very same thing I was being blamed for." He adds, "I almost feel cheated if Columbine is talked about and I'm not mentioned because I went through so much bulls**t and torment, emotionally and personally, and so much concentrated effort to destroy me that I feel I'm being left out when I'm not mentioned. "No one else can take credit for or take responsibility for what I already got blamed for. I don't wanna take responsibility because I already took it."
